Chronic Inflammation has
Created a Global Health Burden
The dramatic rise in the incidence of chronic inflammatory diseases presents a global health burden. Diseases such as type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, neuroinflammation, cardiovascular disease (CVD), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and others are on a rapid rise and are in desperate need for new therapies. The increasing incidence of these diseases can be attributed to genetics, lifestyle choices, environmental factors, and advanced age of the population. In many of these diseases, the severity and resolution can be mediated by the control or diminishment of the underlying inflammation.
