Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist protein (IRAP) therapy

IRAP stands for interleukin-1 receptor antagonist protein, which is an anti-inflammatory product that the body produces. IRAP is known to counteract inflammatory damage in joints that is caused by osteoarthritis. IRAP can be manufactured from a horse's blood, which is processed in a laboratory, before it is injected into a joint of the same horse.
