Resolution Physiology in Human Health: Then and Now
SPM Interview Series with Dr. Charles Serhan, PhD, DSc

The 15 th International Conference on Bioactive Lipids in Cancer, Inflammation and Related Diseases took place October 2017 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. International experts came together to discuss the latest research and applications for bioactive lipids. In this 3-minute video, Dr. Charles Serhan, PhD, DSc shares an edifying history of resolution physiology: from early microscope observations, to the turning point lipoxin discoveries of the 1990s, to the latest research insights and inquiries today

Once thought to be a passive event mediated by chemokines, resolution is now known to be an active process with over 28 members of the specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs) superfamily playing critical roles

Dr. Charles Serhan, PhD, DSc is Director of the Center for Experimental Therapeutics and Reperfusion Injury at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School
SPM Multi-Center, Practice-Based Case Series Study

 Inflammation complicates the management of many conditions such as obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Thus, improved management of an elevated inflammatory response is an important objective in patient care. The impact of SPM supplementation on inflammatory biomarkers was investigated in 34 male and female participants
Start the Resolution: Disrupt the Chronic Disease Trajectory
What clinical tools exist to mitigate inflammation and chronic disease? At the 2017 Integrative Healthcare Symposium Annual Conference (IHS) in New York City, Dr. Robert Martindale, MD, PhD, discusses the impact of resolving systemic inflammation using omega-3 fatty acids and SPMs on the progression of chronic disease
