 Johns Hopkins Gazette | May 1, 2006
To show that excessive signaling by TGF-beta was also responsible for progressive weakening in the aorta, the disease's most serious complication, the researchers tested various doses of neutralizing antibodies to see if reducing the growth factor's signaling had any impact on aortic growth.
Ten Marfan mice were injected over an eight-week period with a dose of 1 milligram per kilogram of neutralizing antibody to TGF-beta, while another group of Marfan mice was given a dose of 10 milligrams per kilogram, and a third group was given a placebo.
Previous research into the syndrome, Judge said, had shown that the rate of increased growth in the aortic root and its diameter were directly related to the chances of suffering a serious tear in the blood vessel.
