Cover Story (view full-size image): Treatment options for managing chronic conditions is an ever evolving and continuous process. Green lipped mussel extracts from marine molluscs can influence inflammatory symptomology. Two genera are discussed in this review for their potential therapeutic use, Perna canaliculus and Mytilus. Saltzman et al. explore P. canaliculus, positing prebiotic benefits for the intestinal microbiome that improve pro-inflammatory symptoms in patients diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee. Saltzman et al. outline how P. canaliculus influences the intestinal microbiome, suppressing exogenous and endogenous intestinal activities and promoting intestinal epithelial homeostasis. They also discuss how marine-derived omega-3 fatty acid supplementation could be utilized in the management of metabolic syndrome, associated complications and chemotherapy-induced mucositis.
