Natural Molecules as IKK a / b Inhibitors useful in the Treatment of Inflammation

  title={Natural Molecules as IKK a / b Inhibitors useful in the Treatment of Inflammation},
  author={Nadia Lampiasi and Giovanna Montana},
Recently, there is a renewed interest in natural molecules used as protein kinase inhibitors with therapeutic potential. The possibility of obtaining these inhibitors from plants or vegetables, more safe compared to the synthetic one, represents a good target for the health demand. Natural compounds have been discovered to be effective in many disease treatments. Among these compounds are polyphenols and other natural molecules. They have been found to be able to interfere with many disease…

New regulators of NF-κB in inflammation

This Review discusses new insights into the regulation of NF-κB, a key mediator of inducible transcription in the immune system, that have been identified and some of the known components have been assigned new roles.
