This study will investigate an antibody which is designed to bind to certain receptors on the surface of neutrophils. Once bound, the drug will block the survival, activation and migration of neutrophils, thereby reducing neutrophil activity, and improving disease outcomes in neutrophil driven inflammation.
Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell that play a key role in the body’s immune response, and are essential for clearing pathogens from the body. However, neutrophils can also negatively contribute to tissue damage in chronic inflammatory diseases. It is therefore imperative that the balance of neutrophils in the body is tightly regulated.
