1. Evaluation of Anti-Inflammatory and Analgesic Properties of L-Glutamine
Match Strength: 9.479

It was established that L-glutamine, an aminoacid, has marked anti-inflammatory activity and moderate analgesic activity. The drug was effective orally in suppressing various experimentally induced inflammatory reactions and did not show any gastric irritation in anti-inflammatory doses. It is observed that the anti-inflammatory effect of L-glutamine is not due to counter irritant action. It is suggested that it may partially mediate its anti-inflammatory activity by interfering with the action and/or synthesis of prostaglandins. Its anti-inflammatory activity is comparable to that of ... Read More »

2. Design, synthesis and in vivo activity of 9-(S)-dihydroerythromycin derivatives as potent anti-inflammatory agents.
Match Strength: 9.176

The synthesis of a new class of 9-(S)-dihydroerythromycin derivatives and their anti-inflammatory activity on in vivo PMA assay are described. Modifying the desosamine sugar on the C-3' amino group, it was possible to differentiate between anti-biotic and anti-inflammatory action. The compounds are completely devoid of anti-microbial effects but their anti-inflammatory properties are enhanced. These results strongly suggest the potential of macrolides as a new class of anti-inflammatory agents ... Read More »

4. The Anti-Inflammatory Action of Nepitrin, a Flavonoid
Match Strength: 9.055

The anti-inflammatory efficacy of nepitrin (5,3',4'-trihydroxy-6-methoxy flavone), a flavonoid, was investigated in both acute and chronic models of inflammation in rats. Nepitrin was found to possess significant anti-inflammatory activity in the exudative and proliferative phases of inflammation. This action of nepitrin could be due to its anti-bradykinin and anti-angiotensin action. Nepitrin also possessed anti-pyretic and weak analgesic activity. The study reveals that nepitrin may be useful as an anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic agent ... Read More »

5. Lipoxin Analogs: Novel Anti-Inflammatory Mediators
Match Strength: 8.800

Most pharmacological anti-inflammatory agents are designed to inhibit the enzymes or receptors that are directly involved in mediating inflammation. In contrast, lipoxin analogs utilize an entirely different anti-inflammatory paradigm, namely that of activating the endogenous anti-inflammatory signaling pathways by which inflammation is normally resolved. Specifically, synthetic stable analogs of the endogenous anti-inflammatory eicosanoid lipoxin A4 (LXA4) have been shown to mimic the anti-inflammatory actions of LXA4 in a variety of inflammation models and display desirable pharmacological ... Read More »

7. Anti-inflammatory effects of IL-4 and IL-10 on human polymorphonuclear leukocytes
Match Strength: 8.708

Inflammatory responses are strictly regulated by coordination of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators. Interleukin-4 (IL-4) and interleukin-10 (IL-10) have typically the biologic anti-inflammatory effects on monocytes, but uncertain effects on polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs). The PMNs are the first line of cellular response for host defense during acute inflammation. To modify hyper-inflammatory reaction with biologic anti-inflammatory mediators, we have determined the biologic anti-inflammatory activities of IL-4 and IL-10 on human PMNs. Human PMNs were pretreated with IL-4 or ... Read More »

8. Synthesis and biological activity of new anti-inflammatory compounds containing the 1,4-benzodioxine and/or pyrrole system.
Match Strength: 8.665

A series of substituted derivatives containing the 1,4-benzodioxine or pyrrole nucleus are described. All the newly synthesized compounds were examined for their in vitro and in vivo anti-inflammatory activity. Several derivatives, including (S)-2, 14 and 17, showed more anti-inflammatory activity in vivo in these assays (rat paw oedema induced by carrageenan) than the known classical anti-inflammatory agent ibuprofen, whereas other compounds like 1 were equipotent to ibuprofen. Compound 17 was the most outstanding derivative because of its remarkable in vivo anti-inflammatory activity. In ... Read More »

9. Practical Points on Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
Match Strength: 8.444

All nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs act by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis, but the particular agent that will best suit an individual patient's needs cannot be predicted. Each drug should be tried for at least three weeks at maximal dosage before it is considered ineffective. When a particular nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent is not effective, one from another class should be tried. Levels of drugs metabolized by the liver are altered by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. Costs are quite variable ... Read More »

10. Asthma. Anti-inflammatory therapies
Match Strength: 8.435

It is likely that airway inflammation has an central role in the development and maintenance of the structural and functional abnormalities that characterise asthma. The recognition that asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways has resulted in an increased emphasis on the use of anti-inflammatory drugs. The principal anti-inflammatory drugs are corticosteroids and to a lesser extent sodium cromoglycate and nedocromil sodium. Several other drugs and therapies may also have anti-inflammatory effects in asthma. The early use of prophylactic anti-inflammatory agents is advocated in ... Read More »

11. Antibiotics as anti-inflammatory agents
Match Strength: 8.340

Although the empirical use of some antibacterial agents in various inflammatory diseases has proved beneficial in the past, it is only recently that the therapeutic anti-inflammatory potential of cyclines and macrolides has received attention worldwide. Other drugs like fosfomycin and some quinolones are also contenders for this role. Owing to the complexity of the inflammatory process, which involves many redundant cellular effectors and soluble mediators, and the obscure etiopathogenesis of many inflammatory diseases (some of which may be secondary to persistent infections), the precise ... Read More »

14. Anti-Inflammatory Effect of Warfarin and Vitamin K1
Match Strength: 8.268

1. Sodium warfarin, given by oral or by parenteral route, displays a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect in the formaldehyde and carrageenan induced rat paw edema. This effect becomes patent not only when the warfarin application precedes the local injection of the irritant substance (prophylactic effect), but also when it is given to animals with already developed inflammatory reactions (therapeutic effect). 2. The active doses of Na warfarin lie between 0.5 and 5.0 mg/kg. Smaller as well as higher doses show a reduced anti-inflammatory effect. 3. A marked anti-inflammatory effect can be ... Read More »

15. Characterization of a novel anti-inflammatory factor produced by RM3/1 macrophages derived from glucocorticoid treated human monocytes.
Match Strength: 8.242

Glucocorticoids exert their anti-inflammatory activity by modulating the functions of various cell types including macrophages. They also induce the generation of a distinct macrophage subtype defined by the surface antigen RM3/1 which appears to be associated with the down-regulation of inflammation. Supernatants from these cells were found to exert a dose-dependent anti-inflammatory effect, particularly in the early phase as shown in the 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) induced footpad edema of mice. By using conventional purification methods the anti-inflammatory factor was found to have a ... Read More »

16. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and cyclooxygenase in Alzheimer's disease
Match Strength: 8.216

Epidemiological studies indicate that anti-inflammatory drugs, especially the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), decrease the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD). Their beneficial effects may be due to interference in the chronic inflammatory reaction, that takes place in AD. The best-characterized action of NSAIDs is the inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX). There is special interest for anti-inflammatory treatment of AD using selective COX-2 inhibitors. These inhibitors reduce the inflammatory reaction but lack the side effects observed with non-selective NSAIDs. So far, ... Read More »

18. The therapeutic potential of anti-cytokine antibodies in the treatment of chronic inflammatory disease.
Match Strength: 8.161

The outcome of inflammatory diseases is likely to be dependent upon the relative balance of pro- versus anti-inflammatory cytokines. Control of this balance through the use of anti-cytokine monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) promises to be an effective means of disease therapy. The treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) with anti- tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) mAb has dramatically ameliorated disease symptoms, indicating that such a treatment approach can be highly successful. Similarly, based on animal studies, the use of neutralising anti-interleukin ... Read More »

The inflammation that is involved in the development of glomerulonephritis is tightly regulated by the expression of anti-inflammatory factors. These include circulating hormones, such as glucocorticoids, and mediators that are produced by intrinsic cells and infiltrating leucocytes. The present review focuses on these anti-inflammatory factors, summarizing in particular their activities in existing models of glomerulonephritis. In addition, experimental evidence is presented that anti-inflammatory mediators are able to increase glucocorticoid binding or signalling in target cells. These data ... Read More »

22. The Proinflammatory Function of Lymphocytes in Non-Immune Inflammation: Effect of Steroidal and Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Agents
Match Strength: 8.084

Leucopenia rendered rats unresponsive to various inflammatory stimuli. The intensity of the inflammatory response in such animals was restored by i.v. administration of suspensions of lymphocytes, but not of granulocytes. This restorative effect was blocked by both steroidal and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Utilizing carrageenin to induce inflammatory responses in the rat's paw, the effect of these drugs on lymphocytes was observed in two circumstances. First, following incubation of the cells with the drugs in concentrations not exceeding the peak plasma levels estimated for these ... Read More »

23. Therapy with and mechanisms of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
Match Strength: 8.038

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic properties. Although most nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs inhibit prostaglandin synthesis, these agents also have important pharmacologic actions unrelated to their effects on prostaglandins. Among these properties is the ability to inhibit the release of mediators of inflammation from neutrophils and macrophages. These effects are due to the ability of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to intercalate into the lipid bilayer of the plasma membrane and thereby disrupt protein-protein and protein-lipid ... Read More »

25. Anti-inflammatory activity of immunoglobulin G resulting from Fc sialylation.
Match Strength: 8.014

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) mediates pro- and anti-inflammatory activities through the engagement of its Fc fragment (Fc) with distinct Fcg receptors (FcgRs). One class of Fc-FcgR interactions generates pro-inflammatory effects of immune complexes and cytotoxic antibodies. In contrast, therapeutic intravenous gamma globulin and its Fc fragments are anti-inflammatory. We show here that these distinct properties of the IgG Fc result from differential sialylation of the Fc core polysaccharide. IgG acquires anti-inflammatory properties upon Fc sialylation, which is reduced upon the induction of an ... Read More »

26. Inhibition of Neutrophil Activation by Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
Match Strength: 8.003

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are thought to prevent inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis. This observation does not explain, however, why nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are able to control inflammation caused by other mediators. To determine whether nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs also exert an effect on neutrophil activation, in vitro and in vivo studies were undertaken. Aggregation, superoxide anion generation, and lysosomal enzyme release were assessed. The nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs were found to inhibit these neutrophil ... Read More »

Nitric oxide (NO)-releasing non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have been shown to have improved efficacy and lower toxicity than their parent agents, and are currently in clinical trials as anti-inflammatory agents. The same approach is now being taken with the glucocorticoids, and initial studies show that NO-releasing forms of prednisolone, flunisolide and hydrocortisone (the nitrosterols) are more potent anti-inflammatory agents than their parent molecules in animal models of acute and chronic inflammation. Experimental studies also suggest that the nitrosterols are less likely to cause ... Read More »

33. Effects of Drugs on Prostaglandin Synthesis
Match Strength: 7.936

The role of prostaglandins in inflammatory processes is now recognized to be more complex than that of mere mediators or modulators of the acute inflammatory response. As well as their obvious vasodilator properties they have profound regulatory effects on cell function, and these may be anti-inflammatory as well as pro-inflammatory. Consequently the use of those effective non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs which are potent prostaglandin synthesis inhibitors may in fact have detrimental effects in inflammation. Further development of cyclo-oxygenase inhibitors is less likely to lead to ... Read More »

34. Cell stress induced HSP are targets of regulatory T cells: A role for HSP inducing compounds as anti-inflammatory immuno-modulators?
Match Strength: 7.933

T cell responses to heat shock proteins (HSP) have disease suppressive activities through production of anti-inflammatory cytokines in patients and in models of inflammatory diseases. There is evidence that the anti-inflammatory activity of HSP-specific T cells depends on their recognition of endogenous HSP epitopes as expressed by stressed cells at sites of inflammation. Previously, we have demonstrated that such T cells can be induced by conserved sequences of microbial HSP. Now we propose that drug induced up-regulation of endogenous HSP can contribute to anti-inflammatory T cell regulation ... Read More »

A high molecular weight protein fraction, obtained by column chromatography of saline extracts of the livers of rats that had previously been treated with dimethylnitrosamine, was found to have anti-inflammatory activity against carrageenin induced inflammation in the rat. Evidence was presented that the anti-inflammatory activity may be due to a protein fragment produced by proteolysis of a larger molecule ... Read More »

44. Inhibitory effects of anti-inflammatory drugs on interleukin-6 bioactivity
Match Strength: 7.834

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is known as a proinflammatory cytokine involved in immune response, inflammation, and hematopoiesis. Inhibitory effects of anti-inflammatory drugs on IL-6 bioactivity using IL-6-dependent hybridoma have been evaluated. Three out of 16 nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) showed IC50 values of less than 100 microM, which were in the order of oxyphenylbutazone hydrate (IC50=7.5 microM)>meclofenamic acid sodium salt (31.9 microM)>sulindac (74.9 microM). Steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (SAIDs) exhibited significant inhibitory effects at 100 microM on the IL-6 ... Read More »

45. Pharmacologic Properties of Fenbufen
Match Strength: 7.825

Fenbufen (Cinopal) is an orally active nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug with analgesic and antipyretic activity. Like clinically used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, it shows activity in a wide spectrum of laboratory tests in mice, rats, guinea pigs, and dogs. Fenbufen has a long duration of anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. Mechanistic studies indicate that fenbufen has no intrinsic effect on cyclooxygenase activity, whereas its major metabolite, biphenylacetic acid, is a potent inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis. These observations indicate that fenbufen is a pro-drug and ... Read More »

46. Anti-inflammatory Constituents of the Red Alga Gracilaria verrucosa and Their Synthetic Analogues.
Match Strength: 7.820

A chemical study on the anti-inflammatory components of the red alga Gracilaria verrucosa led to the isolation of new 11-deoxyprostaglandins ( 1- 4), a ceramide ( 5), and a C 16 keto fatty acid ( 6), along with known oxygenated fatty acids ( 7- 14). Their structures were elucidated on the basis of NMR and MS data. The absolute configurations of compounds 1- 5 were determined by Mosher's method. The anti-inflammatory activity of the isolated compounds ( 1- 14) was evaluated by determining their inhibitory effects on the production of pro-inflammatory mediators (NO, IL-6, and TNF-alpha) in ... Read More »

47. The Possible Occurrence of Endogenous Anti-Inflammatory Substances in the Blood of Injured Rats
Match Strength: 7.806

1 Using the carrageenin rat paw oedema test as an assay, an attempt has been made to confirm the presence of anti-inflammatory activity in the blood of rats with a chronic inflammatory lesion induced by a polyester sponge, and to relate such activity to the systemic anti-inflammatory effect exerted in situ by the lesion. In addition, plasma from rats given acetic acid intraperitoneally has been examined for anti-inflammatory properties. 2 The activity of serum obtained from sponge-bearing adrenalectomized Wistar rats did not differ significantly from that obtained from animals without implants ... Read More »

48. Immunosuppressive agents and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for ocular immune and inflammatory disorders.
Match Strength: 7.804

We now have at our disposal several nonsteroidal immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory agents that may be used in addition to or instead of corticosteroids to treat ocular diseases. This article discusses some of the nonsteroidal immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory agents available to the ophthalmologist. Publication Types: ... Read More »

49. Anti-inflammatory potential of melanocortin receptor-directed drugs
Match Strength: 7.791

Melanocortin receptor-based drug discovery is particularly active in the field of neuroendocrine systems and is mostly related to food intake and novel obesity therapies. The immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects of nonpeptidic, low molecular weight compounds activating the melanocortin-1 receptor (MC1R) provide a new principle for treating various types of inflammation, such as dermal, joint, and gastrointestinal, probably by virtue of the effects acting through modulation of proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. Several reports demonstrate that alpha-MSH, for example, has ... Read More »

50. COX-1, COX-2, and COX-3 and the future treatment of chronic inflammatory disease
Match Strength: 7.788

A new generation of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs has been described that selectively targets the inducible isoform of cyclo-oxygenase, cyclo-oxygenase 2 (COX-2). This isoform is expressed at sites of inflammation, which has led to the speculation that its inhibition could provide all the benefits of current nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, but without their major side-effects on the gastrointestinal system (which are due to inhibition of COX-1). We have shown that COX-2 (identified by use of specific antibodies) is induced during the resolution of an inflammatory response, ... Read More »
