Natural Plant Antioxidant Protects Cells From Processes of IPF

A molecule thought to be a natural antioxidant, pterostilbene (PTE) prevented signs of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) from occurring in a cell model of the disorder by regulating a protein called ASIC2, a study reported. This finding suggests that PTE and other compounds targeting the ASIC2 protein may have the potential to become future IPF treatments. The study, “Pterostilbene alleviates pulmonary fibrosis by regulating ASIC2,” was published in the journal Chinese Medicine. Specialized cells called fibroblasts…
