Mechanism of actionCAT-213 targets eotaxin, a member of the chemokine family of proteins that acts as messenger molecules between the cells of the immune system. During an allergic response the levels of eotaxin1 are elevated. This attracts eosinophils, a type of white blood cell, into tissues where they can degranulate causing tissue damage that occurs in a variety of allergic disorders.
