Airway inflammation is a hallmark of respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Cell adhesion molecules play critical roles in the recruitment and migration of cells to sites of inflammation. Not surprisingly, these receptors have garnered the attention of the pharmaceutical industry as targets for the development of drugs to treat inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Although several potential cell adhesion targets exist, development of compounds for… CONTINUE READING
