Recently, we reported that human neutrophils produce biologically active amounts of IL-6 when incubated with agonists activating TLR8, a receptor recognizing viral single strand RNA. In this study, we demonstrate that IFNα, a cytokine that modulates the early innate immune responses toward viral and bacterial infections, potently enhances the production of(More)
UNLABELLED This study was conducted to investigate the anti-inflammatory activity of Polygala molluginifolia (Polygalaceae) on the mouse pleurisy model induced by carrageenan. P. molluginifolia is a plant native to southern Brazil that is popularly called "canfora". The Polygala genus is used to treat different pathologies, including inflammatory diseases,(More)
CONTEXT Polygala sabulosa, popularly known as "timutu-pinheirinho," has been used in Brazilian folk medicine for the treatment of bowel and kidney disorders and as an expectorant. OBJECTIVE Evaluate the anti-inflammatory effects of the crude extract (CE), acetonic fraction (Ac), and the main compound, 7-prenyloxi-6-methoxycoumarin (PC) on a mouse model of(More)
CCL23, also known as myeloid progenitor inhibitory factor (MPIF)-1, macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-3, or CKβ8, is a member of the CC chemokine subfamily exerting its effects via CCR1 binding. By doing so, CCL23 selectively recruits resting T lymphocytes and monocytes, inhibits proliferation of myeloid progenitor cells and promotes angiogenesis.(More)
Natural products have long been used worldwide as therapeutic agents, but it is only recently, in response to the new challenges posed by global population aging, that interest in research into potentially therapeutic natural products has reemerged. In this context, coumarins, chemical compounds found in plants that have known anti-inflammatory activity,(More)
