Feinstein Institutes researchers discover new protein for sepsis treatment
FEBRUARY 6, 2023
Researchers at the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research have discovered a new protein that can be a potential therapeutic target for lethal sepsis. Led by Feinstein Institutes researcher Haichao Wang, the new study focuses on detecting protein mediators that might contribute to uncontrolled immune responses to lethal infections. It explores the monoclonal antibody detection that may work against procathepsin-L (pCTS-L), a pro-inflammatory protein mediator, as the potential remedy.
