Authors: Li S, Miao Z, Tian Y, Wang H, Wang S, He T, Yang Y, Wang P, Ma M, Yang T, Chen T, Liu Z, Gao J, Chen C, Qian A Abstract Airway inflammation is the major pathological feature of asthma. Thus, the current therapeutic strategy for asthma is to control inflammation. Limethason, an anti-inflammation drug, is widely used in rheumatoid arthritis treatment. The aim of the present study was to detect the anti-inflammatory effect and side effects of limethason on airways that were sensitized with ovalbumin in a murine model of chronic asthma. In the present study, BALB/c mice were sensitized with ovalbumin. Airway h...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewIn rheumatoid arthritis (RA), lipid levels are dynamic and can fluctuate along with changes in inflammation. A reduction in inflammation, most commonly as a result of disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD) therapy, is associated with increases in total cholesterol (TC) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C). In this review, we discuss new evidence shedding light on the potential mechanism underlying changes in lipid levels observed with changes in inflammation.Recent FindingsMeasured lipid levels in the blood are a result of a balance between synthesis and catabolism or absorption. ...
