The mechanism of inflammation formation is complex, involving various cellular signaling processes and paths. A number of inflammation markers have been discovered as targets for different anti-inflammatory approaches. Each marker has its own mechanism in inducing or regulating inflammation, with its function often cross relating to functions of other markers, therefore the impact of a material on inflammation is better understood via multiple marker evaluation.
Many dietary and medicinal plants rich in phytonutrients have been found to possess anti-inflammatory properties. Brunswick Labs provides biological analysis via both clinical studies and human cells based assays to evaluate the anti-inflammatory properties of a material. Scope of anti-inflammatory investigation includes:
