Effects of vitamin D3 on expression of tumor necrosis factor-alpha and chemokines by monocytes.
The association between vitamin D deficiency and asthma epidemic has been recognized. Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha and chemokines play important roles in pathogenesis of asthma. However, whetherExpand

MicroRNA mediation of endothelial inflammatory response to smooth muscle cells and its inhibition by atheroprotective shear stress.
RATIONALE In atherosclerotic lesions, synthetic smooth muscle cells (sSMCs) induce aberrant microRNA (miR) profiles in endothelial cells (ECs) under flow stagnation. Increase in shear stress inducesExpand

Effects of PGI2 analogues on Th1- and Th2-related chemokines in monocytes via epigenetic regulation
Chemokines play important roles in asthma. Prostaglandin I2 (PGI2) analogue is recently suggested as a candidate for treating asthma. However, the effects of PGI2 analogues on the expression of Th1-Expand

Effect of procaterol on Th2‐related chemokines production in human monocyte and bronchial epithelial cells
Procaterol is a β2‐adrenoceptor agonist used as a bronchodilator for the treatment of asthma; it also possesses an anti‐inflammatory property. As chemokines play a pivotal role in inflammation andExpand

Effects of vitamin D3 on the expression of growth-related oncogene-α in THP-1 cells and human primary monocytes.
Asthma and many autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, have been reported to associate with vitamin D deficiency recently. Growth-related oncogene-α (GRO-α)/CXCL1, aExpand
