Cartilage-specific extracellular matrix synthesis is the prerequisite for chondrocyte survival and cartilage function, but is affected by the pro-inflammatory cytokine TNF-alpha in arthritis. The aim of the present study was to characterize whether the immunoregulatory cytokine IL-10 might modulate cartilage matrix and cytokine expression in response to(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) appears to act as an inflammatory mediator on monocytic cells. Exogenous NO augmented release of chemokines from human promonocytic U937 cells and peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Pharmacological strategies aiming at modulation of NO-induced release of interleukin-8 (IL-8) were investigated in U937 cells in detail. Release of IL-8 was(More)
