OBJECTIVE: The efficiency and safety of vaccine are the most important properties, however, as any medication, it can induce side effects. This prophylactic therapy could be used to prevent the lethal and pathophysiological effects induced after scorpion envenomation. METHODS: In this study, detoxified venom associated to alum adjuvant (V*alum) is used as a vaccine against scorpion venom for immunization of mice. We evaluate the safety and the inflammatory response of this vaccine...

OBJECTIVE: The functional PTPN22 R620W polymorphism (rs2476601) is clearly associated with susceptibility to several autoimmune diseases (ADs). However, the PTPN22 R263Q polymorphism (rs33996649) has been scarcely explored in different ADs. Here we aimed to examine the associations of the PTPN22 R620W and R263Q polymorphisms with susceptibility to or protection against rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and Graves' disease (GD) among Mexican patients. METHODS: We conducted a case-control study including 876 patients (405 with SLE, 388 with RA, and 83 with GD) and 336 healthy control individuals...

BACKGROUND: Inflammation plays a key role in the pathogenesis of several chronic diseases. The urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) exerts a plethora of functions in both physiological and pathological processes, including inflammation. OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN: In this study, we evaluated the anti-inflammatory effect of a novel peptide ligand of uPAR, UPARANT, in different animal models of inflammation. SUBJECTS AND TREATMENT: Rats and mice were divided in different groups (n = 5) for single or repeated administration of vehicle (9% DMSO in 0...

OBJECTIVE: Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are important negative regulators of immune processes in cancer and other pathological conditions. We suggested that MDSCs play a key role in pathogenesis of chronic inflammation, which precedes and, to a certain extent, induces carcinogenesis. The present study aimed at investigation of MDSCs arising during chronic inflammation and light-at-night (LN)-induced stress, which is shown to accelerate chronic diseases. SUBJECTS: 67 CD-1 mice and in vitro MDSC cultures...

BACKGROUND: Over the years, many theories have been proposed and examined to better explain the etiology and development of osteoarthritis (OA). The characteristics of joint destruction are one of the most important aspects in disease progression. Therefore, investigating different factors and signaling pathways involved in the alteration of extracellular matrix (ECM) turnover, and the subsequent catabolic damage to cartilage holds chief importance in understanding OA development. Among these factors, reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been at the forefront of the physiological and pathophysiological OA investigation...

OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN: The aim of this study was to elucidate the role of apoptosis mediated through Fas/FasL pathway using the mouse model of atopic dermatitis (AD). MATERIALS AND TREATMENT: AD was induced by epicutaneous application of ovalbumin (OVA) in wild-type C57BL/6, B6. MRL-Faslpr/J (Fas-) and B6Smn.C3-Faslgld/J (FasL-) mouse strains. METHODS: Skin samples were subjected to staining for Fas/FasL expression, M30 epitope and assessment of inflammatory response via immunohistochemical staining...

OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN: Resistin and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) are upregulated in circulating leucocytes in sepsis, but the significance of this is uncertain. We evaluated associations between Resistin and NGAL with endothelial cell activation and clinical outcomes in a prospective observational study in the Emergency Department (ED). METHODS: Serum levels of Resistin, NGAL, inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-10) and soluble endothelial adhesion molecules (VCAM-1, ICAM-1) were measured at defined time points up to 24 h...

OBJECTIVE: Here, we used various approaches to investigate the suppressive role of daphnetin in LPS-induced inflammatory response, with the goal to understand the underlining molecular mechanism by which daphnetin regulated these processes. METHODS: We examined the survival rate and the lung injury in the mice model of LPS-induced endotoxemia. The production of pro-inflammatory factors including tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), interleukin-1β (IL-1β), IL-6, nitric oxide (NO), and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) was measured by ELISA and nitrite analysis, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: Contact dermatitis model involving repeated application of hapten is used as a tool to assess dermatitis, as characterized by thickening. Involvement of cell proliferation, elicited by repeated hapten-stimulation, in this swelling has been unclear. Curcumin is reported to reduce inflammation. We examined involvement of cell proliferation and the role of extracellular regulated kinase (ERK) in 2,4,6-trinitrochlorobenzene (TNCB) challenge-induced ear swelling. We also examined the effects of curcumin in this model...

OBJECTIVES: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory joint disease. The transporter associated with antigen processing (TAP) has been identified to play an important role in immune response as well as the HLA-associated diseases. The aim of our meta-analysis was to investigate the contribution of TAP (TAP1 and TAP2) polymorphisms to the risk of AS. METHODS: Meta-analyses were performed between 2 polymorphisms in TAP1 (TAP1-333, -637) and 3 polymorphisms in TAP2 (TAP2-379, -565, and -665) and AS...

BACKGROUND: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a highly prevalent endocrinopathy is currently being designated as chronic low grade inflammatory state. IL-1β, IL-1Ra and FABP1 are critical mediators of inflammatory processes and are speculated to play a role in the pathogenesis of PCOS. The aim of this study was to study the association of IL-β, IL-1Ra and FABP1 gene polymorphisms with PCOS and related metabolic features. SUBJECTS: 95 PCOS and 45 age matched healthy control subjects were enrolled in this study...

BACKGROUND: Fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS) play an essential role in the pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Paeonol (Pae) is a phenolic compound found in many traditional Chinese medicine remedies. However, the effects of Pae on TNF-α-stimulated FLS and the underlying molecular mechanism are unknown. In this study, we aimed to investigate the anti-proliferative and anti-inflammatory effect of Pae against activated FLS. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Rheumatoid arthritis FLS (RA-FLS) were pre-treated with different doses (25, 50, and 100 µM) of Pae or miR-155 inhibitor for 30 min or transfected with miR-155 mimic, and then treated with 50 ng/mL of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) for 1 h...

OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN: Experimental animal models and human clinical studies support a crucial role for TLRs in infectious diseases. The aim of this study was to test the ability of MSCs, which have immunomodulatory effects, of altering the mRNA expression of toll-like receptors during a experimental model of sepsis in different tissues. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three experimental groups (male C57BL/6 mice) were formed for the test: control group, untreated septic group and septic group treated with MSCs (1 × 10(6) cells/animal)...

OBJECTIVE: Graves' orbitopathy (GO) is initiated by excessive amount of various inflammatory mediators produced by orbital fibroblasts. This study aimed to assess the crucial role of sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) in the inflammatory process of GO. METHODS: Orbital adipose/connective tissue samples were obtained from 10 GO patients and 10 normal control individuals during surgery. Primary orbital fibroblast culture was done. After the expression of S1P receptors and sphingosine kinase (SphK) was assessed with the treatment of interleukin (IL)-1β, we evaluated the expression of pro-inflammatory factors [intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and IL-6] after treating S1P...

Mitogen-activated protein kinase phosphatase 1 (MKP-1) expression is induced by inflammatory factors and serves as an endogenous p38 MAPK suppressor to limit inflammatory response. Glucocorticoids are very effective anti-inflammatory drugs and they are used for the treatment of many inflammatory diseases, such as asthma and COPD. We investigated the role of MKP-1 in the inhibition of cytokine production by dexamethasone in human A549 bronchial epithelial cells. We found that dexamethasone increased MKP-1 expression, inhibited p38 MAPK phosphorylation, and suppressed TNF and MIP-3α production in A549 cells...
