Effects of tetracyclines on the pathologic activity of endotoxin: in vitro and in vivo studies.

Abstract

Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is considered to be one of the major virulence factors of Gram-negative bacteria. Recently, tetracyclines (TTCs) were found to prevent the patho-physiological changes associated with LPS in vivo and the secretion of inflammatory mediators in vitro. However, the mechanism by which TTCs prevents LPS-induced pathology in vivo is still… (More)
