Inflammation is involved in increasing number of diseases necessitating the development of new, effective and safe treatments. Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been helpful in many instances, but they only inhibit cyclooxygenase (COX), but not the generation or actions of cytokines. Instead, some natural flavonoids have multiple anti-inflammatory effects, including COX inhibition, and a much safer profile. Increasing evidence indicates that inflammation plays a critical role… Expand
The value of flavonoids for the human nutrition: Short review and perspectives
The nutritional value of flavonoids is probably related to their anti-inflammatory activity and through this mechanism responsible for prevention of neoplasia and the evidence for their clinical efficacy as essential compounds is still preliminary at best and limited but suggestive. Expand
Genuine traditional Korean medicine, BaekJeol-Tang for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis
Korean medicine, BaekJeol-Tang (BT) has potential as a regulator of inflammatory reactions for the treatment of arthritis such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Expand
Beneficial effects of Flavonoids after ambulatory therapy with Combined Hemorrhoidal Radiocoagulation (CHR).
The usefulness of Flavonoids to make more comfortable the post-treatment period is confirmed, and the mean score on overall satisfaction at 30 days from the treatment showed a statistical significance. Expand
Role of Mast Cells in Atherosclerosis: A Classical Inflammatory Disease
The participation of mast cells in atherosclerosis is still an enigma and it may be of therapeutic interest to clarify this process. Expand
Reducing Proinflammatory States with the Mediterranean Diet: Possible Mechanism for Cancer Prevention
A Mediterranean diet can reduce proinflammatory processes, and, as a result, it can circumvent the toxicity associated with pharmacological approaches and offer benefits in many health domains. Expand
Use of Flavonoids for the treatment of symptoms after hemorrhoidectomy with radiofrequency scalpel.
The results confirm the usefulness of this drug to reduce the prevalence and the importance of post-hemorrhoidectomy symptoms and make more comfortable the postoperative period. Expand
Role of TNF Alpha, IL-33 and CCL2/MCP-1 in Mast Cell Activity
It is reported that IL-33 is a strong activator of human mast cell capable to induce CCL2/MCP-1 released at translational level, suggesting that this cytokine may have an important effect on the recruitment of inflammatory cells in allergic diseases. Expand
Anti-inflammatory activity and phenolic composition of prickly pear (Opuntia ficus-indica) flowers
Abstract The in vivo anti-inflammatory activity of methanolic extract of Prickly pear Opuntia ficus-indica flowers was studied using carrageenan induced rat paw edema model. In order to characterizeExpand
Effects of a Mediterranean Diet Intervention on Anti- and Pro-Inflammatory Eicosanoids, Epithelial Proliferation, and Nuclear Morphology in Biopsies of Normal Colon Tissue
The increase in PGE3 with a Mediterranean diet indicates that in normal colon, diet might affect protective pathways to a greater extent than proinflammatory and proliferative pathways, and biomarkers from cancer models might not be relevant in a true prevention setting. Expand
Recent advances in our understanding of mast cell activation – or should it be mast cell mediator disorders?
ABSTRACT Introduction: An increasing number of patients present with multiple symptoms affecting many organs including the brain due to multiple mediators released by mast cells. These unique tissueExpand
