Protective effects of thymosin β4 in a mouse model of lung fibrosis.

Abstract

Thymosin β4 (Tβ4) has been found to have several biological activities related to antiscarring and reduced fibrosis. For example, the anti-inflammatory properties of Tβ4 and its splice variant have been shown in the eye and skin.
