Prostaglandin E2 synthesis and secretion: the role of PGE2 synthases.
Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) is a principal mediator of inflammation in diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) and selectiveExpand

The Growth Factor Progranulin Binds to TNF Receptors and Is Therapeutic Against Inflammatory Arthritis in Mice
A growth factor protects against arthritis in mice by blocking tumor necrosis factor–dependent signaling. The growth factor progranulin (PGRN) has been implicated in embryonic development, tissueExpand

The fibroblast-like synovial cell in rheumatoid arthritis: a key player in inflammation and joint destruction.
Although multiple cell types are present in the rheumatoid joint, the fibroblast-like synovial cell (FLS) is among the most prominent. It is now appreciated that the FLS is not only space-filling,Expand

A novel mechanism of action of tetracyclines: effects on nitric oxide synthases.
Tetracyclines have recently been shown to have "chondroprotective" effects in inflammatory arthritides in animal models. Since nitric oxide (NO) is spontaneously released from human cartilageExpand
