About this book


This book examines the role of bioactive lipids as pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators in the diagnosis of and as novel therapies for cardiovascular disease, cancer, ocular and neurologic diseases, and inflammatory conditions.

The major pathways of arachidonic acid and omega-3 fatty acid metabolism are represented, including cyclooxygenases, lipoxygenases, cytochrome P450 monooxygenases, specialized pro-resolving mediators, endocannabinoids, and ceramide and other sphingolipids.

This book would be of great interest to basic and translational researchers, as well as physician-scientists working on selected topics (e.g., cancer, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, inflammation, etc.) in which the underlying role of lipid mediators in the pathophysiology is known or suspected.

This compilation of peer-reviewed manuscripts represents reviews of timely topics presented at the 15th International Conference on Bioactive Lipids in Cancer, Inflammation and Related Diseases. Authors selected are outstanding junior investigators representative of future leaders in the field of bioactive lipids.
