Anderson Cancer Center at the University of Texas, will present research surrounding curcuminoids and boswellic acids, which have been shown to inhibit the actions of nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB), a protein that regulates inflammation at the molecular level. NF-kB is involved in the expression of more than 300 genes that trigger abnormal inflammatory responses, which can ultimately lead to a variety of chronic disorders including arthritis and cancer. In Los Angeles, Michael Godard, Ph.D., will highlight findings from a clinical trial he spearheaded surrounding Sabinsa's ForsLean(R) ingredient, the results of which were published in a recent edition of the Journal of Obesity Research. Milan Fiala, M.D., researcher at the UCLA School of Medicine will also be speaking in Los Angeles on the molecular mechanisms of curcuminoids in enhancing innate immunity.
