  author={Dr. Irene Monta{\~n}o},
In the process of aging, the immune system becomes less effective and its capacity to manage the inflammatory response is reduced. This can lead to chronic inflammation characterized by a slow but continuous production of free radicals. In skin, chronic inflammation causes the known phenomena of skin aging such as wrinkles and loss of elasticity. The term “inflamm-aging” describes this close relationship between inflammation and aging. During this process one of the inflammatory transcription… Expand

Abstract Propionibacterium acnes, an anaerobic pathogen, plays an important role in the pathogenesis of acne and seems to initiate the inflammatory process by producing proinflammatory cytokines. InExpand
Magnolol and honokiol isolated from Magnolia officinalis protect rat heart mitochondria against lipid peroxidation.
Both magnolol and honokiol exhibited free radical scavenging activities as shown by the diphenyl-p-picrylhydrazyl assay, but they were less potent than alpha-tocopherol. Expand
The inflammatory response consists of an innate system of cellular and humoral responses following injury (such as after heat or cold exposure, ischemia/ reperfusion, blunt trauma, etc.), in whichExpand
