Via THE IRISH TIMES, March 2018 | “Scientists in Ireland, the UK and US have discovered a new metabolic process in the body that can switch off inflammation. The discovery opens up a strong possibility of more effective treatment of inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and heart disease.”

“Researchers based at the Biomedical Sciences Institute at Trinity College Dublin, who played a leading role in the breakthrough, hope the discovery will lead to much-needed new drugs to treat people living with inflammatory and infectious diseases by switching off over-active immune cells which arise with these conditions.”
