Natural Fat-like Molecules Treat Established Lung Fibrosis in Mice

Lab-made versions of naturally occurring forms of nitro oleic acid effectively treated established pulmonary fibrosis (PF) in a mouse model, a study reports. These findings support the further development of these agents for reversing fibrosis, or tissue scarring, in the lungs and other organs, its scientists noted. The study, “Fatty acid nitroalkene reversal of established lung fibrosis,” was published in the journal Redox Biology. PF is characterized by progressive scarring — or fibrosis — of…
