Developing Novel Drugs to Treat Inflammation in Horses
It is the job of the immune system to respond to injury. However, an excessive response can actually damage tissue and cause chronic inflammation. Researchers have identified a potential immune regulator involved in activation of the immune response. If verified, this regulator could serve as a target for the development of new anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce the damaging effects of chronic inflammation.
