Amino Acid Metabolite Shows Anti-inflammatory Potential

A natural, small molecule called 3-HKA) has shown potent anti-inflammatory activity in lab tests and mouse models of immune-related diseases, a study found. The findings suggest that molecules that mimic 3-HKA (3-hydroxy-L-kynurenamine) may serve as broad-acting therapeutics to protect against inflammation in several autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, including multiple sclerosis (MS). The study, “3-hydroxy-L-kynurenamine is an immunomodulatory biogenic amine,” was published in the journal Nature Communications. The standard treatment for MS and most autoimmune diseases…
