Vagus nerve stimulation promotes resolution of inflammation
“The findings indicate that electrical signals in the vagus nerve activate a cholinergic signal promoting Alox15-dependent lipid mediator biosynthesis and accelerating resolution of inflammation, providing additional insights into neural regulation of inflammation.”
Sulforaphane exhibits antiviral activity against SARS-CoV-2 in vitro and in mice
“We determined that SFN has potent antiviral activity against HCoV-OC43 and multiple strains of SARS-CoV-2, including Delta and Omicron … “we documented that SFN can inhibit in vitro and in vivo replication of SARS-CoV-2 at pharmacologically and potentially therapeutically achievable concentrations. Further, it can modulate the inflammatory response, thereby decreasing the consequences of infection in […]
The Metabolic Role and Therapeutic Potential of the Microbiome
Here we discuss how the gut bacterial composition is altered in, and can contribute to, cardiometabolic disease, as well as how the gut bacteria can be targeted to treat and prevent metabolic diseases.
