Resolving Inflammation
« on: January 10, 2020, 04:49:20 pm »
Chronic inflammation is a major contributor to the development and spread of cancer. Most cancer patients have elevated levels of inflammatory blood markers, such as C-reactive protein, homocysteine, and fibrinogen, as well as outward symptoms like persistent pain. Resolving cancer-promoting inflammation is crucial and should a central component of any anti-cancer protocol. Natural compounds like curcumin can inhibit the initiation of inflammation and may reduce its severity, but they do not resolve ongoing inflammation. The latter requires unique fatty-acid derived compounds known as specialized pro-resolving mediators or SPMs. SPMs facilitate the removal of dead and dying cells and cellular debris left over from inflammation. SPMs help restore an appropriate balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators. And SPMs initiate and promote regeneration of tissues that have been damaged by inflammation.
