Untangling the NETs: SickKids scientists identify new approach to fight the underlying cause of inflammation

When scientists discovered that a type of white blood cell called neutrophils cast net-like structures with their own DNA to trap and kill bacteria, they were very excited. However, they soon realized that neutrophil extracellular traps or NETs not only kill bacteria but also destroy organs. ... Full story
