Three different anti-inflammatory agents--diclofenac, dexamethasone, and N-acetylcysteine--were compared to evaluate their effectiveness in suppressing monocyte-macrophage cell culture activation and mediator release (tumor necrosis factor-alpha [TNF-alpha] and interleukin-1beta [IL-1beta]) in response to polymethylmethacrylate particulate debris.(More)
We investigated the effectiveness of an antioxidant agent, N-acetylcysteine (NAC), in suppressing macrophage activation and mediator release in response to particulate debris. Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) particle-stimulated monocyte-macrophages were cultured alone and with varying concentrations of NAC. Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha) and(More)
