    i would like to find out more about the smart anti-inflammatory protein.

    Has it gone though testing on humans ?

    will testing be available in the US?

      Hi Rose – I think that all the information you are requesting is contained in the article itself. It is still very much in early stage development – clinical trials in the laboratory. But it is exciting news and even relevant for my own chronic condition. Hopefully I will be around to make use of the eventual resultant medication. Best regards, Michael
