The mechanisms of action of disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs: a review with emphasis on macrophage signal transduction and the induction of proinflammatory cytokines.
1. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is probably the most common source of treatable disability. A major problem in modern rheumatology is that the mechanism(s) of action of the currently usedExpand

Differential effects of tenidap on the zymosan- and lipopolysaccharide-induced expression of mRNA for proinflammatory cytokines in macrophages.
Tenidap is a novel antirheumatic drug that combines cyclooxygenase inhibition with cytokine modulating qualities. We demonstrate here that tenidap inhibits the zymosan-induced expression of bothExpand
