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

during the last few years, we've witnessed great development within the box of eicosanoids and their healing functions. Receptor an­ tagonists for leukotrienes were verified as anti-inflammatories and are out there as a remedy for bronchial asthma. Receptor agonists for professional­ stacyclin are being established for the therapy of peripheral vascular dis­ ease, and selective inhibitors of cyclooxygenase sort II have been simply ap­ proved for the therapy of rheumatoid arthritis. a lot of these advancements are the fruits of decades and man-hours of cautious study. the sphere has now entered an upswing that would bring about 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 methods have emerged. the idea that of ei­ cosanoids as "pro-inflammatory" molecules is being challenged, and their position as regulators is more and more famous. actually, a few of these molecules will be very important endogenous anti inflammatory agents.
