Published: Apr 03, 2006
Scientists at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research have made a discovery that may change the way inflammatory conditions are treated. The researchers looked at certain nerve cell receptors in the brain and found they control inflammation in the body. The discovery presents a potential new approach for treating inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease. The study, by Valentin Pavlov, PhD, Kevin Tracey, MD, and colleagues, was published in the March 28 issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
