Chronic disease is characterised by insidious or intermittent homeostatic dysregulation, leading to persistent disruption of normal organ function. Its course is often difficult to predict, in part because underlying causal networks or disease-critical pathways are difficult to probe on relevant time scales. One approach to this problem is to measure homeostatic dysregulation of critical pathways directly to uncover incipient change. This talk will highlight the use of macromolecular biosynthetic labelling with heavy water to probe normal and pathologically altered homeostasis. Methodological developments and challenges will be discussed, as well as applications in the study of autoimmune diseases.
