Understanding Environmental Disrupters in Lung Disease and Cancer
Posted March 19, 2020
Chronic inflammation can be caused by both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. In this eBriefing, experts examine the newest research on chronic inflammation and its role in lung disease and cancer, with emphasis on emerging therapeutic approaches that promote the resolution of inflammation.
In This Webinar, You’ll Learn:
- The intrinsic and extrinsic factors (including tobacco smoke) that drive chronic inflammation and can contribute to pro-tumorigenic environments.
- How pro-resolving pathways are compromised in cancer and chronic lung diseases such as COPD.
- How modulating resolution pathways could lead to the development of new therapies with high efficacy and fewer side effects.
