Pierre A Hanna, Mamdouh M Ghorab, Shadeed G Shadeed
Betamethasone dipropionate is a highly effective corticosteroid anti-inflammatory. However, the main drawback of its topical use is the limited skin penetration into deeper skin layers. Also, its systemic use has shown many side effects. The goal of this research was to formulate betamethasone dipropionate in nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) formulae that contain oleic acid to aid its penetration to deeper skin layers and to aid absorption to local regions upon topical application.NLC formulae were prepared by high shear homogenization then sonication...

A novel series of 2-(Morpholin-4-yl)-N-phenylquinazolin-4-amine derivatives were synthesized and confirmed with spectral and elemental techniques. The compounds were tested for analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity by various pain models in rodents whereas the selectivity towards COX-2 receptor is determined by in vitro assay. Screening results of compounds exhibited comparable biological activity with that of standard compound Indomethacin used for study. Compound 5d was found to be significantly potent with respect to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity with substantial COX-II selectivity...

Serine protease, human neutrophil elastase (HNE), has been shown to be useful in medical science, however, its over production and malfunctioning may produce devastating effects and cause serious damage to the host. Unfortunately, the present approved drug, sivelestat, only alleviates the symptoms of the diseases caused by malfunction of HNE but not the disease progression. Therefore, there is crucial need to search potent and safer molecules as elastase inhibitors and to develop better anti-inflammatory drugs in future...

The promising activity of coumarin derivatives as anti-inflammatory agents has motivated us to synthesize a new series of coumarin derivatives aiming to improve the anti-inflammatory activity and/or bioavailability. In the present work, the reaction between compound III and different aromatic acyl chloride had resulted in a series of ester derivatives 1-9. All synthesized new compounds 1-9 along with compound III as a parent compound and Celecoxib as a reference, were assessed for their anti-inflammatory activity both in-vivo and in-vitro using the formalin-induced hind paw edema method and inhibition of albumin denaturation and red blood cells (RBCs) membrane stabilization, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Dracocephalum kotschyi is traditionally used for its anti-inflammatory effects. We aimed to investigate the effects of ethyl acetate extract of D. kotschyi on the expression of key inflammatory mediators and main signaling molecules involved in the regulation of inflammation. METHODS: Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated J774.1 mouse macrophages were cultured in the presence of the plant extract and examined by the real time-PCR for gene expressions of interleukin (IL)-1β, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and cyclooxygenase (COX)-2...

BACKGROUND: Current therapies for against inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are sometimes limited by high costs, high toxicities and/or undesirable side effects, reasons for which new treatments are constantly being developed and studied. In this regards, an increasing mass of data has demonstrated that fecal transplantations and probiotic supplementations have shown promising effects and could be considered as adjunct IBD treatments to decrease some of the unwanted side effects caused by primary treatments...

Most of the clinically used anti-inflammatory drugs such as NSAIDs, Coxibs and GCs are allied with considerable toxicity. OBJECTIVE: The search of novel anti-inflammatory agent is not an ending process. Although the drug treatment has been improved steadily but yet, it is still there is a need to develop more potent therapeutic agents...
