Promising results are expecting from ongoing phases I/II clinical trials proving the therapeutic efficacy of DR agonistic antibodies and/or recombinant prot…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
