What to do: It's too early to know if DHA prevents knee cartilage loss or if arachidonic acid causes knee inflammation.
They discuss their prevalence, pathophysiology, and existing therapeutic options; what constitutes a lipid and how it is broken down to generate biologically active mediators; mediators like arachidonic acid, platelet-activating factor, and lysophosphatidic acid, how they act, and their role in airway inflammation; the products of arachidonic acid metabolism, such as leukotrienes, prostaglandins, epieicosatrienoic acid, and oxoeicosatetraenoic acid; anti-inflammatory lipid mediators such as lipoxin and drug discovery efforts to mimic lipoxin action; enzymes that affect the process of lipid mediator synthesis, their biology, and drug discovery efforts; the role of sphingosine and ceramide; and kinases.
They found that treatment of these cultures with an inflammatory stimulus increased expression of COX-2 and stimulated release of arachidonic acid and endocannabinoids, which were oxidized by COX-2.
Currently aspirin therapy is monitored using platelet aggregation to measure the dose-response curve to diverse platelet activators including adrenaline, ADP, arachidonic acid and collagen.
2]-catalyzed arachidonic acid release, caused inhibition in prostaglandin [E.
Rather, the level of arachidonic acid is lower in the elderly male than the young female.
Biochemical assays have shown that the CYP2 enzymes, together, are able to metabolize many chemicals, including more than half of all frequently prescribed drugs, as well as some steroids and arachidonic acid, the major precursor of several classes of signal molecules including the prostaglandins.
Two COX enzymes identified in the early 1990s transform arachidonic acid into prostaglandins, which are natural substances that can induce pain and inflammation.
