ECTRIMS 2022 | Epigenetic mechanisms of lipid mediators in multiple sclerosis

Gijs Kooij, PhD, Amsterdam UMC, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands, provides an overview of the epigenetic mechanisms associated with disrupted lipid mediators in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Current investigations are looking into the epigenetic mechanisms of the enzymes that produce the lipids to understand whether they are suppressed or more active. This will also clarify the increased levels of pro-inflammatory lipid mediators in MS patients and how to regulate the epigenetic mechanisms in favor of MS patients. This interview took place at the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) Congress 2022 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
