Manufacturer's ResponseRaj, we are happy to hear about your positive experience. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
Resolvins are a family of potent lipid mediators derived from both eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; Item No. 90110) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; Item No. 90310). In addition to being anti-inflammatory, resolvins promote the resolution of the inflammatory response back to a non-inflamed state. Resolvin D1 (RvD1) is produced physiologically from the sequential oxygenation of DHA by 15- and 5-lipoxygenase. A 17(R)-epimer (Item No. 13060) of RvD1 can also be generated in aspirin-treated samples. Both RvD1 and its 17(R)-configuration reduce human polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMNL) transendothelial migration, the earliest event in acute inflammation, with EC50 values of ~30 nM. RvD1 and its aspirin-triggered form also exhibit a dose-dependent reduction in leukocyte infiltration in a mouse model of peritonitis with a maximal inhibition of ~35% at a 10-100 ng dose. Analytical and biological comparisons of synthetic RvD1 with endogenously derived RvD1 have confirmed its identity as matching the natural product.
