Inflammatory diseases include a broad range of disorders and conditions characterised by inflammation, which is a defence mechanism in the body.
We are researching devices that modulate the activity of peripheral nerves to restore healthy organ function to manage conditions such as Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. These devices have the potential to replace the use of pharmaceutical agents and also manage conditions currently untreatable with traditional methods. This approach offers exciting possibilities for future inflammatory disease treatments.
