Calcium and the CRAC Channel

The Role of the Immune System

 

The immune system is a set of body defenses, including cells, antibodies, and other proteins, that are responsible for defending against foreign pathogens like viruses and bacteria. In some cases, the immune system can become overly aggressive and start to attack its own host, creating chronic autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.

 

The Role of Calcium in Immunity

 

Calcium signaling plays a pivotal role in regulating this immune system activation. Calcium entry into immune cells is required for the initiation of an inflammatory response. By blocking this calcium signaling, we can stop unwanted inflammation and protect healthy tissues that might otherwise be damaged.
 

The Role of Calcium in Disease

 

Mis-regulated calcium signaling occurs in a number of diseases with high levels of inflammation including ulcerative colitis, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease, among others. Vivreon's technology targets this calcium signaling to slow chronic inflammation, minimize tissue damage and, in some cases, allow healthy tissue to restore itself.
