2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
2:00 pm Opening Remarks
2:15 pm Lecture and Discussion
NIH Main Campus
- Define the functional differences between anti-inflammation versus pro-resolution and the cell types involved;
- Define the anti-inflammatory and pro-resolving lipid mediators;
- Review the biosynthesis and omega-3 precursors (EPA and DHA) of the resolvins, protectins and maresins (E-series vs. D-series resolvins) and their actions;
- Define the resolution indices: what enhances resolution and the drugs that are resolution toxic; and
- What are the key cellular targets of the resolvins and mechanism(s) (e.g. receptors, miR, etc.) that define resolving autacoids in animal inflammatory diseases.
