during the last few years, now we have witnessed super growth 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 verified for the remedy 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 examine. the sphere has now entered an upswing that might lead to novel thera­ peutic purposes 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 very important endogenous anti inflammatory agents.
