Protocol Preview: a Ferret Model of Respiratory Inflammation
While rodents have long been used to model many human diseases, their anatomical, physiological, and immunological differences from humans cannot be ignored when modeling respiratory inflammation. Recently, Khoury et al. demonstrated how ferrets can be used to model inflammatory respiratory disease and injury, which we review in this blog post.
Orphan Receptor GPR55: A New Therapeutic Target for Atherosclerosis?
Since the role of GPR55 in adaptive B cell response regulation has not yet been reported in the context of atherosclerosis, Guillamat-Prats et al. have investigated how GPR55 in B cells affects atherosclerosis development. In this blog post, we highlight the main findings from this study, which was published this month in Nature Cardiovascular Research.
