Where are SPMs Most Commonly Stored in the Body?


Specialized Pro-Resolving Mediators (SPMs) offer an exciting opportunity to treat and manage the inflammation often associated with chronic disease. In this short video, we ask Dr. Charles Serhan of Harvard Medical School about where SPMs are most commonly stored in the body.

Dr. Serhan responded that there is no evidence that SPMs are stored in the body at all. Preclinical and limited human data indicate that SPMs act rapidly at target cells. Afterward, they are inactivated.

Watch the video for more details of the activation of SPMs.
