Project with KitoZyme
Professor Pierre Desreumaux’s project with KitoZyme aims to highlight the anti-inflammatory and/or analgesic properties of two ingredients developed by KitoZyme (chitosan and chitin-glucan from Aspergillus niger) on experimental models of colitis and intestinal nociception. In order to realize this, two pilot preclinical studies (animal experiments) will be conducted in collaboration with intestinal biotech development with a view to evaluating the effect of these ingredients and elucidating their mechanism(s) of action.
