Potential New Therapy for Crohn’s and Colitis Discovered

The cells that line the gut of an ulcerative colitis patient are inflamed and filled with a protein called PAI-1 (shown in red) that is linked to blood clotting. Nuclei are shown in blue, and other intestinal cells are marked in green. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found that blocking the protein potentially could lead to alternative therapies for inflammatory bowel disease that reduce symptoms without targeting inflammation directly.
