Cytokines such as such as TNF-a, IL-1, IL-6 correlate with the severity of pancreatitis.Neuroendocrine pathways, such as the sympathetic nervous system or parasympathetic nervous system, i...
Persistent chronic inflammation is an important underlying event in multiple diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases and type 2 diabetes. These disorders are c...
There is a reciprocal relationship between the central nervous system and the immune system. Stimulation of the vagus nerve results in secretion of acetylcholine (Ach) which decreases secr...
The kynurenine pathway is involved in hyperalgesia. This pathway is activated by inflammation. Ketamine would interact with the kynurenine pathway and inflammation. Our working hypotheses ...
Rationale: The vagus nerve exerts an anti-inflammatory effect in in vitro and animal experiments. This 'vagal anti-inflammatory pathway' is mediated by the nicotinergic α7nACh receptor th...
Much research now indicates that vagal nerve stimulation results in a systemic reduction in inflammatory cytokine production and an increase in anti-inflammatory cell populations that originates from ...
Recent evidence suggests hypertension may be secondary to chronic inflammation that results from hypoactive neuro-immune regulatory mechanisms. To further understand this association, we used systemic...
Many studies have found that abnormalities in the proportion and differentiation of CD4 T cells (Th cells) are closely related to the pathogenesis of viral myocarditis (VMC). Our previous research ind...
Neuromodulation is a novel approach that utilizes electrical signals, pharmaceutical agents, or other forms of energy to modulate abnormal neural function through neurostimulation. Neurostimulation is...
Acetylcholine (ACh) is involved in the modulation of the inflammatory response. ACh levels are regulated by its synthesizing enzyme, choline acetyltransferase (ChAT), and by its hydrolyzing enzymes, m...
An anti-inflammatory, synthetic glucocorticoid. It is used topically as an anti-inflammatory agent and in aerosol form for the treatment of ASTHMA.
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties. It is an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase.
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AGENTS, NON-STEROIDAL) similar in mode of action to INDOMETHACIN.
Anti-inflammatory agents that are not steroids. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions. They are used primarily in the treatment of chronic arthritic conditions and certain soft tissue disorders associated with pain and inflammation. They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects. Certain NSAIDs also may inhibit lipoxygenase enzymes or TYPE C PHOSPHOLIPASES or may modulate T-cell function. (AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p 1814-5)
The system of ACETYLCHOLINE-synthesizing enzymes, transporters, receptors and degrading enzymes that characterize non-neuronal cholinergic cells such as airway and skin EPITHELIAL CELLS.
