Authors: Yang, Qiwei; Ali, Mohamed; El Andaloussi, Abdeljabar; Al-Hendy, Ayman

Published In Cancer Stud Mol Med, (2018 Nov)

Abstract: Early life exposure to a variety of insults during sensitive windows of development can reprogram normal physiological responses and alter disease susceptibility later in life. During this process, Inflammation triggered by a variety of adverse exposures plays an important role in the initiation and development of many types of diseases including tumorigenesis. This review article summaries the current knowledge about the role and mechanism of inflammation in development of diseases. In addition, epigenome alteration related to inflammation and treatment options using epigenetic modifiers are highlighted and discussed.
