Complement antagonism and neuroinflammatory injury
What is it about?
Interactions between inflammation and neuronal damages are well demonstrated. Frequently inflammation represent the main cause of acute and chronic pain. This study has investigated new pathways to reduce inflammation and prevent the neuronal damages.
Why is it important?
Till now, the COX inhibition seems the only efficacious way to block inflammation and produce analgesia consequent to the inflammatory processes. Inflammation is much more complex than what is happening with the arachidonic acid metabolism. Complement system seems also important. This study has investigated the effects of the complement inhibition on inflammation, or more specifically on the neuroinflammation consequent to anoxia.
