Inflammation & Immunology

Inflammation & immunology

Inflammation is a highly complex systemic process.  Metabolomics has demonstrated potential for identification of biomarkers for disease subtype, stage and treatment response, as well as insight into the molecular basis of diseases. At the biochemical level, inflammatory mediators and biomarkers are represented by metabolites including lipids/fatty acids, amino acids, anti-oxidants and nucleotides that report on key aspects of inflammation including cell trafficking, cell activation, oxidative stress and signaling.
