Pre-clinical and Phase 1 studies have shown Resunab to have a favorable safety profile coupled with promising potency in pre-clinical models of inflammation and fibrosis. Resunab binds to the CB2 receptor of immune cells and triggers a process known as "inflammatory resolution," in effect turning chronic inflammation "off."
