New wide anti-inflammatory treatment

Oleacein (OLE) treatment reduces oxidative stress in colon tissue Immune-mediated inflammatory disease (IMID) is a term used to define a group of clinically heterogeneous, unrelated disorders that are recognized to share common inflammatory pathogenic mechanisms, The incidence of these autoimmune and inflammatory diseases has increased worldwide, and is being considered a health concern asociated to modern lifestyle, dietary habits, antibiotic intake and hygiene environment.. Genetic factors also play a crucial role.
IMID is associated with comorbidities that extend beyond the primary target organ. Thus, many conditions in which symptoms are not localized to the gastrointestinal system often involve an underlying gastrointestinal dysfunction.
The researchers have found a new treatment for these intestinal alterations using oleacein and oleocanthal as agents that markedly reduced the major hallmarks of gastrointestinal dysfunction. This opens a new approach to the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases, as well as multiple sclerosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Crohn’s disease, ankylosing spondylitis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis and myocarditis.
