Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disorder that affects the joints. High-fat diet (HFD) is a risk factor for RA and is related to inflammation but responds minimally to medication. Given the association between HFD and inflammation, it is important to understand the function of inflammation-related T cells in RA with HFD. Collagen-induced(More)
Metformin (Met) and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) are reported to have therapeutic functions in several inflammatory diseases. These drugs have shown anti-inflammatory effects and have been utilized in mouse models of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, there is no evidence of the additive effect of Met and CoQ10 in RA. Although Met and CoQ10 may be involved in the(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative and inflammatory disorder on particular joint inducing annihilation of articular cartilage. This study is aimed to investigate the therapeutic effect of extract of chicken combs (CCE) on pain severity and cartilage degeneration in an experimental model of rat OA. OA was induced in rats by intra-articular injection of(More)
RESULTS The oral administration of rebamipide decreased plaque formation in atherosclerotic lesions as well as the markers of metabolic disorder in ApoE-deficient mice with atherosclerosis. Pro-inflammatory cytokines were also suppressed by rebamapide. In addition, the population of Th17 was decreased, whereas Treg was increased in the spleen of(More)
Signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) orchestrates the differentiation of several cell types, including interleukin-17 (IL-17)-releasing Th17 cells. Dysregulation of Th17 cells results in chronic inflammatory responses. Ssu72 is a C-terminal domain phosphatase required for transcriptional regulation. However, the mechanism by which(More)
