This search for "curcumin inflammation" on the National Institute of Heath site provided 1162 results, many quite recent. E.g. an excerpt from the abstract. J. Food Sci. 2017 Aug 3 follows. The entire article can be read here.

"Numerous studies have shown that curcumin modulate multiple molecular targets and can be translated to the clinics for multiple therapeutic processes. There is compelling evidence that curcumin can block cell proliferation, invasion, and angiogenesis as well as reduced the prolonged survival of cancer cells. Curcumin mediates anti-inflammatory effect through downregulation of inflammatory cytokines, transcription factors, protein kinases, and enzymes that promote inflammation and development of chronic diseases."
