over the past few years, we've got witnessed great growth within the box of eicosanoids and their healing functions. Receptor an­ tagonists for leukotrienes were confirmed as anti-inflammatories and are out there as a therapy for bronchial asthma. Receptor agonists for professional­ stacyclin are being validated for the therapy of peripheral vascular dis­ ease, and selective inhibitors of cyclooxygenase sort II have been simply ap­ proved for the remedy of rheumatoid arthritis. some of these advancements are the fruits of a long time and man-hours of cautious study. the sector has now entered an upswing that might 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 techniques have emerged. the idea that of ei­ cosanoids as "pro-inflammatory" molecules is being challenged, and their position as regulators is more and more well-known. actually, a few of these molecules should be vital endogenous anti inflammatory agents.
