U.S. University Develops Nanoparticle to Fight Asthma

Chicago, April 21 (RHC)-- Scientists from Chicago's Northwestern University have developed the nanoparticle Troy Horse to fight asthma, according to a report from the National Academy of Sciences.

The creators explained that a nanoparticle loaded with the allergen is inoculated in the blood stream, and the immune system recognizes it as an innocuous residue, helping the immune system fend off aggressions from allergens and reinitiate its routine.

The Troy Horse consists of lactic and glycolic acids, which are used to heal any allergic disorder, either respiratory or nutritional. But the investigations continue to determine if they may be as efficient in treating other autoimmune illnesses, such a celiac disease and multiple sclerosis.
