Animal data strongly support a role for inflammation in myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury. Attempts at cardioprotection by immunomodulation (such as with the specific C5 antibody pexelizumab) in humans have been disappointing. We hypothesized that a broader spectrum antiinflammatory agent might...
