Session Description: Unresolved inflammation is a major mechanism of pathogenesis in many human diseases. A paradigm shift is emerging in our understanding of the pathogenesis of inflammation which results not only from persistent activation of inflammatory signals, but also from the active loss of pro-resolution mechanisms. Differentiating between the suppression and resolution of inflammation driven by pro-resolution mediators is critical for the treatment of various inflammatory diseases.
