A new drug target in atherosclerosis: The anaphylatoxin C5a
Date:1/4/2011

ls of patients with myocardial infarction, but not in cardiac patients without infarct. This suggests that inhibiting C5a might provide a therapeutic tool in the prevention or treatment of atherosclerosis, as well as other diseases with immune system participation such as arthritis.

"Up to now, anaphylatoxin C5a has been mainly implicated in immunologic diseases such as asthma, rheumatoid arthritis or lupus," said Gerald Weissmann, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of the FASEB Journal. "But now, this study shows that C5a, a product of an activated complement system may be responsible for the devastating effects of atherosclerosis."
