New paper published in FASEB Journal

Our collaborative work with Michael Hsieh (BRI Rockville, MD) and Ted Jardetzy (Stanford, CA) has been published in FASEB Journal earlier this month. The paper describes the use of IPSE, a molecule released in large amounts by the eggs of the parasitic trematode Schistosoma haematobium, for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced cystitis. IPSE performed better than the conventional drug used for prevention of chemotherapy-induced cystitis, 2-mercaptoethane sulfonate sodium (MESNA). The precise mechanisms are currently under investigation.
