Isanas is dedicated to developing novel therapies for severe inflammatory diseases.
Inflammation is a normal response of the body or parts of it to pathogenic microorganisms, damaged or dead cells and other harmful substances. By this biological response the body wants to eliminate such irritants and starts repair mechanisms.
Sometimes, this otherwise healthy response is seriously derailed as it may become directed against own, intact parts of the body or it simply overshoots ("hyperinflammation"), both leading too often to life-threatening inflammatory diseases.
Examples of such acute or chronic inflammatory diseases include allergies, arthritis, asthma, coeliac disease, Crohn's disease, ischemia/ reperfusion injury, multiple sclerosis, sepsis, transplant rejection and few more with many of them requiring significantly better therapy options.
