A NOVEL THERAPEUTIC STRATEGY FOR LYMPHOEDEMA
Grant number: 1183926 | Funding period: 2020 - 2020
Lymphoedema is a common chronic disease which, in Australia, predominantly occurs in women. There are no effective preventative strategies for lymphoedema, current treatments are of limited benefit and there are no drug-based therapeutics for the condition. This project will validate a new way of treating lymphoedema based on drugs that target key molecular signalling mechanisms in this disease. This approach will also be tested for its capacity to prevent lymphoedema.
