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

over the past few years, we have now witnessed super growth within the box of eicosanoids and their healing functions. Receptor an­ tagonists for leukotrienes were validated as anti-inflammatories and are out there as a remedy for bronchial asthma. Receptor agonists for professional­ stacyclin are being demonstrated for the remedy of peripheral vascular dis­ ease, and selective inhibitors of cyclooxygenase variety II have been simply ap­ proved for the therapy of rheumatoid arthritis. a majority of these advancements are the end result of a long time and man-hours of cautious study. the sphere 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 techniques have emerged. the concept that of ei­ cosanoids as "pro-inflammatory" molecules is being challenged, and their function as regulators is more and more well-known. in reality, a few of these molecules might be very important endogenous anti inflammatory agents.
