BACKGROUND: Adipocyte-macrophage communication plays a critical role regulating white adipose tissue (WAT) inflammatory gene expression. Because WAT inflammation contributes to the development of metabolic diseases, there is significant interest in understanding how exogenous compounds regulate the adipocyte-macrophage crosstalk. An aqueous (AQ) extract of North American (NA) ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) was previously shown to have strong inflammo-regulatory properties in adipocytes...

MATERIAL AND METHODS: From September 2011 to September 2012, 70 patients (medi- an age 62 years), with persistent abnormal PSA values after negative extended PBx, were given an herbal extract with anti-inflammatory activity for 3 months (Lenidase®; 1 tablet daily constituted of baicalina, bromelina and escina)...

Accumulation of Sudan black-stainable (SB+) lipids is a hallmark of the focal inflammato-proliferative lesions that develop along preglomerular vessels in N G-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) and angiotensin II hypertensive rats. We extended our findings to genetically hypertensive Lyon (LH) rats aged 14 and 30 weeks and to age-matched normotensive (LN) rats. Vessels were isolated by HCl maceration. Despite high systolic blood pressure (SBP), hypercholesterolaemia, albuminuria and increased interlobular and afferent arteriolar media thickness, SB+ lesions were rarely found in LH rats, regardless of age...

BACKGROUND: The circumscript cutaneous sclerosis is an inflammato-edematous erythema of the skin, usually leading to a plaque-like sclerosis and cutaneous atrophy. The etiology of this disease remains unknown, but some authors presume a systemic infection with Borrelia burgdorferi as the underlying pathological condition. PATIENT: We present a case of a 66-year-old male patient who suffered from episcleritis of his left eye. Funduscopy showed an unilateral papillary edema...
