1-MNA anti-inflammatory activity
In a study of 70 dyslipidemic patients, 1-MNA decreased the blood level of high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) by 17%, and reduced the blood level of tumour necrosis factor TNF-α by 14%. In patients with the highest initial level of TNF-α, 1-MNA reduced its level by 29% (Diagram A). hsCRP and TNF-α are inflammatory markers that play a crucial role in the course and the development of various cardiovascular events, as well as in treating inflammatory diseases. This study was conducted through the renowned Montreal Heart institute in Canada.
