Up-regulation of the inducible isoform of nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) was determined during the development of adjuvant-induced arthritis in the rat. iNOS enzymatic activity, measured in spleen tissue, appeared and increased coincidentally with the appearance and degree of paw swelling and joint destruction in this arthritis model, when measured on days 0(More)
The use of chronic glucocorticoid (GC) therapy for the treatment of inflammatory diseases is limited by associated metabolic side effects, including muscle atrophy. Therefore, selective glucocorticoid receptor-(GR)-binding ligands that maintain anti-inflammatory activity and demonstrate diminished side-effect profiles would have great therapeutic utility.(More)
The effects of beta-3 adrenergic receptor (beta3-AR) agonists on gastrointestinal (GI) motility, as reported by stomach retention and intestinal transit of radiolabelled charcoal, were compared in wild-type (WT) mice and in transgenic mice lacking beta3-AR (beta3-AR[KO]) or having beta3-AR in white and brown adipose tissue only (beta3-AR[WAT+BAT]).
