By C.N. Serhan,H.D. Perez

during the last few years, we've got witnessed super growth within the box of eicosanoids and their healing purposes. Receptor an­ tagonists for leukotrienes were established as anti-inflammatories and are out there as a therapy for bronchial asthma. Receptor agonists for professional­ stacyclin are being verified for the therapy of peripheral vascular dis­ ease, and selective inhibitors of cyclooxygenase kind II have been simply ap­ proved for the therapy of rheumatoid arthritis. some of these advancements are the end result of a long time and man-hours of cautious learn. the sector has now entered an upswing that may lead to novel thera­ peutic functions in the subsequent 10 years. New molecules and me­ diators were pointed out, new enzymes and pathways elucidated and new healing ways have emerged. the idea that of ei­ cosanoids as "pro-inflammatory" molecules is being challenged, and their function as regulators is more and more famous. in truth, a few of these molecules might be vital endogenous anti inflammatory agents.
