Interlukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein Therapy is an effective treatment for musculoskeletal injuries in the horse such as degenerative joint disease, tendon and ligament injuries as well as muscle injuries.
IRAP is used in situations where inflammation is considered to be a problem.
IRAP is obtained from the culture of your horse’s blood in special blood tubes that contain beads that stimulate the production of anti-inflammatory proteins. Once this is cultured the area can be injected. This is often a multiple stage therapy.
