Anti-Inflammatory Properties of Low and High Doxycycline Doses: An In Vitro Study

Abstract

Doxycycline is used to treat infective diseases because of its broadspectrum efficacy. High dose administration (100 or 200 mg/day) is often responsible for development of bacterial resistances and endogenous flora alterations, whereas low doses (20-40 mg/day) do not alter bacteria susceptibility to antibiotics and exert anti-inflammatory activities.
