ARORAGE-1001 - Inhalation Solution in Healthy Subjects and Patients With Inflammatory Lung Disease

ARO-RAGE is being developed as a potential asthma and CF treatment and is intended to reduce inflammation in the airways by blocking and inhibiting an important lung receptor (component) involved in the inflammatory response, known as RAGE (Receptor for Advanced Glycation End-products). By reducing inflammation and improving airflow, ARO-RAGE may be an effective treatment for asthma and CF.
