UNC researchers develop new technology to identify inflammation – Dr. Leslie Parise (Charlotte Post)

Inflammation is a hallmark of many health conditions, but quantifying how the underlying biology of inflammation contributes to specific diseases has been difficult. For the first time, UNC researchers and colleagues now report the development of a new technology to identify white blood cells called neutrophils that are primed to eject inflammatory DNA into the circulation via a process called NETosis.

Newsworthy: UNC Researchers Develop Machine Learning Algorithm to Detect Inflammation

Inflammation is a common indication of many health conditions, but calculating how the underlying biology of inflammation contributes to specific diseases has been very difficult. For the first time, a team of researchers at UNC School of Medicine now report the development of a new technology to identify white blood cells called neutrophils that are primed to eject inflammatory DNA into the circulation via a process called NETosis. The findings are published in Scientific Reports.
