Leukotriene B4: A potential mediator and biomarker for Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy.
Dr. Kiran Khush
One of the heart's responses to injury is inflammation that can lead to Cardiac Allograft Vasculopathy (CAV). CAV causes the release of a newly found signalling substance that can become a biomarker for early CAV detection. That signaling pathway will be studied as an important target for novel drugs that could prevent and/or treat CAV.
