Recent Advances in the Chemistry and Biology of Stable Synthetic Lipoxin Analogues

  • Colm DuffyEmail author
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The Lipoxin metabolites dramatically reduce the bioactivity of this class of compounds and render them poor potential pharmacological agents. In light of the findings associated with the stabilisation and market value of the synthetic prostaglandin and prostacyclin analogues, it was thought that a similar approach could be beneficial with respect to the native Lipoxins (LX).
