Nuclear PPARs and Have Opposing Effects on Monocyte Chemotaxis in Endometriosis
Sorry for the long scary title, but PPARs are truly one of the hot buttons in disease research today. I really do believe that many of today’s chronic disease really stem from a relatively few biochemical defects that branch out in different directions and cause each branch’s respective disease. It does seem that the PPARs family is a large branch on this disease tree, and the more we understand what each receptor does, the more we can learn how altered functions create disease. Although the pharmaceuticals are spending lots of money on drugs that try to alter or control PPARs function, remember that nature usually got there first…we just have to find them.
