SSI efficacy in treating infectious colitis
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a disease with unknown etiology that is characterized by uncontrolled intestinal inflammation and microbial dysbiosis. Qu Biologicsâ Site Specific Immunomodulators (SSI) are a platform technology shown to improve the status of people living with IBD (Crohnâs disease and ulcerative colitis), with most of those patients showing clinical improvement also going into clinical remission. SSI are a complex biologic designed to reconstitute normal innate immune function through multiple parallel mechanisms. To better understand how SSI protect against IBD, we will test the efficacy of SSI in models of infectious colitis in collaboration with Dr. Bruce Vallance at the University of British Columbia.
