Cystic Fibrosis: Delayed Neutrophil Apoptosis Enhances NET Formation

The researchers demonstrate that Cystic fibrosis (CF) neutrophils have prolonged survival secondary to decreased apoptosis, and this is likely a primary defect in CF neutrophils. Increased neutrophil extracellular traps (NET) formation by CF neutrophils is a consequence of a failure to engage in apoptosis and can be targeted by CDKi drugs.

An intrinsic delay in neutrophil apoptosis enhances NET formation in CF and consequently inflammation, representing a novel target for the development of future anti-inflammatory therapies.

Edible QR Code can be the Medicine of the Future

For the last 100 years, researchers have constantly pushed the boundaries for our knowledge about medicine and how different bodies can respond differently to it. However, the methods for the production of medicine have not yet moved away from mass production. Many who have a given illness get the same product with the equal amount of an active compound.
