Atherosclerosis is a progressive inflammatory disease characterized by the accumulation of lipids in the arterial wall. Inflammation plays a key role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and some previous studies have shown the role of adipokines during the inflammatory process of atherosclerosis. Therefore, the present study aimed to evaluate the impacts of adiponectin and CTRP15 on inflammatory cytokines secretions from THP1 and primary macrophages. Read More

A growing number of studies have shown that air fine particulate matter (PM) pollution is closely associated with neuroinflammation in humans. Militarine, a glucosyloxybenzyl 2-isobutylmalate compound isolated from Bletilla striata, has been found to exert significant neuroprotective effects. However, the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiapoptotic effects of militarine on PM-stimulated BV-2 microglial cells have not been reported. Read More

Background: Pseurotins, a family of secondary metabolites of different fungi characterized by an unusual spirocyclic furanone-lactam core, are suggested to have different biological activities including the modulation of immune response.Purpose: Complex characterization of the effects of pseurotin D on human lymphocyte activation in order to understand the potential of pseurotin to modulate immune response in humans.Methods: CD4+ and CD8+ T cells and CD19+ B cells isolated from human blood were activated by various activators simultaneously with pseurotin D treatment.
