Resolving Neuro-Inflammation to Treat Alzheimer’s Disease and Pain

Resolving Neuro-Inflammation to Treat Alzheimer’s Disease and Pain

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

Overview

Inflammation in the nervous system plays a key role in many acute health problems including Alzheimer’s disease and chronic pain — both of which affect millions of people globally and lack effective treatments. This eBriefing will explore how the body’s failure to resolve chronic neuro-inflammation contributes to disease, as well as highlight opportunities to develop pro-resolving compounds as novel therapies.

In This Webinar, You’ll Learn:

  • The role of neuro-inflammation as a key component of severe global health problems including Alzheimer’s disease and chronic pain conditions.
  • How new research suggests that the failure to resolve neuro-inflammation may be a major contributor to the pathology of these diseases.
  • The latest advances in targeting resolution pathways to develop effective drugs for neurological diseases of high unmet need.
