Background: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder clinically characterized by memory loss and impaired cognitive function. Cholinergic enzyme deficiency and oxidative stress are the two major factors implicated in the pathogenesis of AD. The symptomatic treatment, as of now, is the use of cholinesterase inhibitors toward cholinergic "downturn." Therefore, there is a search for compounds that will be useful in focused therapies. There has been suggestion that Terminalia chebula fruit would be a potential source...

Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease that is commonly treated with surgical and nonsurgical techniques. However, both approaches have limitations. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been widely applied in reducing inflammatory reactions, and research indicates that LLLT induces an anti-inflammatory effect that may enhance periodontal disease therapy. The purpose of this study was to investigate the anti-inflammatory effect of LLLT on human periodontal ligament cells (hPDLCs) in an inflammatory environment and aimed to determine the possible mechanism of action...

ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: Schisandrae Fructus (SF), the dried fruit of Schisandra chinensis (Turcz.) Baill., is a well-known traditional herb used in Asia for enhancing physical work capacity as well as providing anti-stress and anti-inflammatory effects. Extracts of SF (SFe) have also been reported to increase skeletal muscle mass and inhibit muscle atrophy. AIM OF THE STUDY: We examined whether SFe had muscle-protective effects in old mice after chronic forced exercises, and, if so, relevant mechanisms...

Statins, which are 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase competitive inhibitors, not only lower blood cholesterol, but also exert pleiotropic and beneficial effects in various diseases. However, the effects of statins on acute lung injury (ALI) induced by hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) have not been investigated. The present study is the first to investigate the effects of simvastatin in ALI induced by HBO in 8 - 9 week old C57BL/6 mice exposed to 0.23 MPa (= 2.3 atmosphere absolute (ATA)) hyperoxia ( 95% O2) for 6 hrs...

Myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury always occur during the recovery of myocardial blood supply with high morbidity and mortality. Although, various therapeutic schedules were applied in clinic, there are real problems that have to be resolved on curative effect. Nod-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome has moderation effects on cellular damage and inflammatory reaction after I/R injury. Our research aims to investigate a more effective approach to restrain the activation of NLRP3 inflammasome in treating myocardial I/R injury...

Human phospholipase A₂ (hPLA₂) of the IIA group (HGIIA) catalyzes the hydrolysis of membrane phospholipids, producing arachidonic acid and originating potent inflammatory mediators. Therefore, molecules that can inhibit this enzyme are a source of potential anti-inflammatory drugs, with different action mechanisms of known anti-inflammatory agents. For the study and development of new anti-inflammatory drugs with this action mechanism, snake venom PLA₂ (svPLA₂) can be employed, since the svPLA₂ has high similarity with the human PLA₂ HGIIA...

The mucopolysaccharidoses are lysosomal diseases characterized by deficient activity of one of the enzymes that degrades glycosaminoglycans. Treatment options are limited; therefore, new treatments are under investigation. Areas covered: We review the medicinal products for the treatment of mucopolysaccharidoses that are currently being investigated in phase I and phase II clinical trials. Expert opinion: The number of alternatives to treat MPS diseases increased dramatically in an attempt to provide therapy options for orphan MPS diseases and to address the unmet needs of the MPS that already have a treatment available...

The main treatment algorithm for adrenal insufficiency is hormonal replacement, however, inadequate hormone substitution often leads to severe side effects. Adrenal cell transplantation could be a more effective alternative but would require life-long immune suppressive therapy. PreImplantation Factor (PIF) is an endogenous peptide secreted by viable human embryos that leads to maternal tolerance without immunosuppression. PIF could be effective for xenogeneic cell transplantation such as of bovine adrenocortical cells (BAC), which are used for bioartificial adrenal gland development that may more effectively restore complex adrenal functions...

In NOD mice and also likely humans, B lymphocytes play an important role as APC-expanding autoreactive T cell responses ultimately causing type 1 diabetes (T1D). Currently, humans at high future T1D risk can only be identified at late prodromal stages of disease indicated by markers such as insulin autoantibodies. When commenced in already insulin autoantibody(+) NOD mice, continuous BAFFR-Fc treatment alone or in combination with anti-CD20 (designated combo therapy) inhibited T1D development. Despite eliciting broader B lymphocyte depletion, continuous combo therapy afforded no greater T1D protection than did BAFFR-Fc alone...

BACKGROUND: Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic relapsing allergic inflammatory skin disease that currently affects millions of children and adults worldwide. Drugs used to treat these inflammatory diseases include anti-histamines, corticosteroids and calcineurin inhibitors but these drugs have their limitations such as adverse effects with their long-term usage. Thus, researcher's interest in several alternative and complementary therapies are continually growing and balneotherapy is one of these approaches...

Brain-related disorders have outmatched cancer and cardiovascular diseases worldwide as the leading cause of morbidity and mortality. The lack of effective therapies and the relatively dry central nervous system (CNS) drug pipeline pose formidable challenge. Superior, targeted delivery of current clinically approved drugs may offer significant potential. Minocycline has shown promise for the treatment of neurological diseases owing to its ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and potency. Despite its potential in the clinic and in preclinical models, the high doses needed to affect a positive therapeutic response have led to side effects...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: In the treatment of CKD, individual patients show a wide variation in their response to many drugs, including renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi). To investigate whether therapy resistance to RAASi can be overcome by uptitrating the dose of drug, changing the mode of intervention (with drugs from similar or different classes), or lowering dietary sodium intake, we meta-analyzed individual responses to different modes of interventions. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS: Randomized crossover trials were analyzed to assess correlation of individual responses to RAASi and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs; n=395 patients)...

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S), the third endogenous gaseous signaling molecule alongside nitric oxide (NO) and carbon monoxide, is synthesized by multiple enzymes in cardiovascular system. Similar to other gaseous mediators, H2S has demonstrated a variety of biological activities, including anti-oxidative, anti-apoptotic, pro-angiogenic, vasodilating capacities and endothelial NO synthase modulating activity, and regulates a wide range of pathophysiological processes in cardiovascular disorders. However, the underlying mechanisms by which H2S mediates cardiovascular homeostasis are not fully understood...

The pharmacological therapy for inflammatory bowel diseases continues to be problematic, and requires new alternative options. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that carvacrol (CAR), a phenolic monoterpene with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities, can treat experimental colitis in mice. C57BL/6 mice (n=8/group) were subjected to intrarectal administration of acetic acid (5%) to induce colitis. Mice were pretreated with CAR (25, 50 or 100mg/kg, p.o.) every 12h for three days prior to the induction...

Asthma, acute lung injury (ALI), and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are lung inflammatory disorders with a common outcome, that is, difficulty in breathing. Corticosteroids, a class of potent anti-inflammatory drugs, have shown less success in the treatment/management of these disorders, particularly ALI and COPD; thus, alternative therapies are needed. Poly(ADP-ribose)polymerases (PARPs) are the post-translational modifying enzymes with a primary role in DNA repair. During the last two decades, several studies have reported the critical role played by PARPs in a good of inflammatory disorders...

Silybin is one of the effective, traditional Chinese medicines used as a hepatoprotective agent in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) therapy worldwide, and the NOD-like receptor family pyrin domain-containing 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome has been recognized as an important factor involved in NAFLD development. However, little is known about the mechanisms of silybin in the regulation of high-fat diet (HFD)-induced liver inflammation. In our study, we found that silybin inhibited endoplasmic reticulum stress and NLRP3 inflammasome activation in the livers of HFD-fed mice and in cultured hepatocytes...

Abstracts Purpose: Pirfenidone is mostly used in antifibrotic and anti-inflammatory therapies. We have previously demonstrated that pirfenidone had antifibrotic and anti-inflammatory effects on the wound healing process after glaucoma filtration surgery in vitro and in vivo. Since the wound healing and reactive scarring process simultaneously involves inflammation, fibrosis, and angiogenesis, and angiogenesis plays a more important role in chronic or prolonged wound healing, we tried to explore the antiangiogenesis effect in pirfenidone and its potential multitarget function in regulating excessive scarring...

Cough is the most common reason to visit a primary care physician, yet it remains an unmet medical need. Fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) is an enzyme that breaks down endocannabinoids, and inhibition of FAAH produces analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. Cannabinoids inhibit vagal sensory nerve activation and the cough reflex, so it was hypothesised that FAAH inhibition would produce antitussive activity via elevation of endocannabinoids.Primary vagal ganglia neurons, tissue bioassay, in vivo electrophysiology and a conscious guinea pig cough model were utilised to investigate a role for fatty acid amides in modulating sensory nerve activation in vagal afferents...
