The following article discusses the current status of a novel tool, ET-traps, which is an Fc fusion protein that may become a potential therapeutic for use in diabetes, as well as various other diseases associated with pathologically elevated endothelin-1 levels. The ET-traps have a very high and fast association to their target (endothelin-1) and a very slow dissociation once bound to their target.
