Evidence is provided here supporting the existence of a novel autacoid mechanism negatively modulating mast cell behaviour in response to noxious stimuliin vivo; hence, the denomination “autacoid local inflammation antagonism” (ALIA). In particular, as lipid amides of theN-acylethanolamine type have been reported to accumulate in tissues in degenerative inflammatory conditions, we examined whether theseN-acylated lipids could exert regulatory effects on mast cell activationin vivo. The results… Expand
