"Previous research from Dr. Mehrara’s lab had suggested that lymphedema results from an uncontrolled inflammatory process promoted by certain immune cells. In a new paper, published on February 10 in the journal Nature Communications, he and his colleagues show that an FDA-approved drug that quells the actions of these inflammatory cells can reverse the debilitating condition, or prevent it from developing — at least in mice.

"Whether the drug — which is applied directly to the skin — will have the same positive effects in humans is a question he and his team plan to explore in clinical trials."
