IBBR overview

In the last 30 years, we have witnessed a rapid growth in interest in research into inflammation-related diseases. Chronic inflammation plays a critical role in the initiation and development of various human illnesses. Macrophages play a central role in the

inflammatory response and secrete pro-inflammatory cytokines, pro-inflammatory enzymes and inflammatory mediators, the accumulation of which leads to development of various diseases such as cancer, type 2 diabetes and neuro-degenerative diseases. In parallel, there has been renewed interest in alternative medicines and natural therapies and thousands of potential medicinal plants have been screened to identify bio-active lead components, in particular for their anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties. At the IBBR studies are undertaken to examine the mechanism of action of several medicinal plants to evaluate their therapeutic potential compared with synthetic drugs.
