Unresolved inflammation is associated with several widely occurring diseases such as arthritis, periodontal diseases, cancer, and atherosclerosis. Endogenous mechanisms are that which curtail excessive inflammation. A newly emerging chemical mediators derived from polyunsaturated fatty acids were identified that controls the acute inflammatory response by activating local resolution. They are specialized pro-resolving lipid mediators that includes lipoxins (LXs), resolvins (Rv), protectins, and maresins, because they are enzymatically biosynthesized during resolution of self-limited inflammation. They have anti-inflammatory and pro-resolution actions of Rv of the D1 with up regulation of arachidonic acid-derived endogenous resolution pathways (LXA4). A novel therapeutic host modulating are for resolution of inflammation.
