“Our findings indicate that the environment of the lung triggers toxin production. We have been able to develop state-of-the-art systems to observe infection and toxin production using live cell and whole animal imaging.
We believe CARDS TX is a most important virulence factor of airway diseases, and these key studies will lead to innovative treatments of serious acute and chronic pulmonary pathologies.”
