TR47 Opportunity in leaky vasculature
The vasculature, composed of vessels of different morphology and function, distributes blood to all tissues and maintains physiological tissue homeostasis. In pathologies, the vasculature is often affected by and engaged in, the disease process. In resting conditions, the vasculature continuously leaks solute and small molecules but restricts extravasation of larger molecules and cells. In many diseases, including cancer and chronic inflammatory conditions, the vascular barrier disintegrates and leakage increases and may become chronic.
Animal data supports TR47 as a potential leaky vasculature therapy
