Managing Master Alarm Protein Gal-3,
a Source of Degenerative Disease

Presented by
Isaac Eliaz, MD, MS, LAc

What to expect

Located at the headwaters of the inflammatory cascade, galectin-3 (Gal-3) plays an important role as an upstream signaling molecule. Extensive research shows that Gal-3 drives numerous systemic inflammatory and fibrotic conditions, earning Gal-3 the designation of “master alarm protein.”  

Modulation of Gal-3 can influence pathogenic processes at work, which makes Gal-3 an important diagnostic and prognostic biomarker. Join Isaac Eliaz, MD, a recognized expert in Gal-3 research, to learn how to utilize this important integrative tool in clinical practice. In this presentation you will learn:

  Gal-3’s role in degenerative disease

•  How modulation of Gal-3 can inhibit pathogenic processes and enhance efficacy of certain classes of drugs

•  The clinical evidence behind modified citrus pectin (MCP), a natural inhibitor of Gal-3

•  Evidence-based protocols using a Gal-3 inhibition approach

Don’t miss this opportunity with Dr. Eliaz to benefit from his extensive experience with Gal-3 inhibition in integrative medicine and integrative oncology.
