OBJECTIVES a) To evaluate the effect of Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) on C-reactive protein (CRP) on patients with chronic inflammation and b) to evaluate the effectiveness of NKO on arthritic symptoms. [...] Key MethodMETHODS Randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study. Ninety patients were recruited with confirmed diagnosis of cardiovascular disease and/or rheumatoid arthritis and/or osteoarthritis and with increased levels of CRP (>1.0 mg/dl) upon three consecutive weekly blood analysis.Expand
Effects of Supplementation with Neptune Krill Oil (Euphasia Superba) on Selected Redox Parameters and Pro-Inflammatory Markers in Athletes during Exhaustive Exercise
TLDR
It is concluded that supplementation with Krill oil (1 g per day) in trained rowers diminished post exercise oxidative damage to erythrocytes during recovery, but had no effect on antioxidant enzymes, TNF-α and serum lipid profiles. Expand
Effects of Fish Oil on HIV-Related Inflammation and Markers of Immunosenescence: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
A 12-week supplementation regimen of 1.6 g/day of fish oil did not favorably modulate parameters of inflammation or immune senescence in HIV-infected adults and future studies should test agents that directly target mechanisms that underlie HIV-related inflammation to determine whether reducing inflammation can reverse immunosenescence. Expand
Krill Oil for HIV-Related Inflammation: A Pilot Study
TLDR
This research explored the safety and effect size of krill oil for reducing soluble inflammatory mediators in persons with HIV infection and found potential advantages as an anti-inflammatory agent, compared to fish oil. Expand
Lipid-modifying effects of krill oil in humans: systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
Krill oil supplements can reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides and additional clinical studies with more participants are needed to assess the impact of krill oil supplementation on other indices of cardiometabolic risk and on the risk of cardiovascular outcomes. Expand
Krill Oil Improves Mild Knee Joint Pain: A Randomized Control Trial
TLDR
This study indicates that krill oil administration (2 g/day, 30 days) improved the subjective symptoms of knee pain in adults with mild knee pain. Expand
FlexPro MD®, a Combination of Krill Oil, Astaxanthin and Hyaluronic Acid, Reduces Pain Behavior and Inhibits Inflammatory Response in Monosodium Iodoacetate-Induced Osteoarthritis in Rats
TLDR
The findings suggest that FP-MD is a promising dietary supplement for reducing pain, minimizing cartilage damage, and improving functional status in OA, without the disadvantages of previous dietary supplements and medicinal agents, including multiple adverse effects. Expand
KARAOKE: Krill oil versus placebo in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis: protocol for a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
This study will provide compelling evidence that krill oil improves pain and function, changes disease trajectory and slows disease progression in OA, and given the lack of approved therapies for slowing disease progression, and moderate cost of krillOil, these findings will be readily translated into clinical practice. Expand
KARAOKE: Krill oil versus placebo in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis: protocol for a randomised controlled trial
Background: Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a common and important cause of pain and disability, but interventions aimed at structural modification have been disappointing. While OA affects the wholeExpand
Effects of krill oil on endothelial function and other cardiovascular risk factors in participants with type 2 diabetes, a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Krill oil may lead to moderate improvement of cardiovascular risks, specifically endothelial dysfunction and HDL in patients with type 2 diabetes. Expand
Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect of Kerabala: a value-added ayurvedic formulation from virgin coconut oil inhibits pathogenesis in adjuvant-induced arthritis
TLDR
It is shown that ayurvedic drug CB has an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic activity in experimental arthritic model and has beneficial effect for treating inflammation, tissue damage and pain associated with arthritis. Expand

Reduction of acute-phase proteins with tenidap sodium, a cytokine-modulating anti-rheumatic drug.
TLDR
The finding that tenidap sodium rapidly, consistently and significantly lowered CRP serum concentrations differentiates tenidAP sodium from the NSAID, naproxen could possibly have important therapeutic implications given that other long-term investigations have shown that reducing serum CRP and SAA concentrations correlates with a reduction in radiographically-assessed disease progression. Expand
Supplementation with omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in the management of dysmenorrhea in adolescents.
TLDR
Dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids has a beneficial effect on symptoms of dysmenorrhea in adolescents, and a marked reduction in the Cox Menstrual Symptom Scale is suggested. Expand
Effects of astaxanthin on lipopolysaccharide-induced inflammation in vitro and in vivo.
TLDR
This study suggests that AST has a dose-dependent ocular anti-inflammatory effect, by the suppression of NO, PGE2, and TNF-alpha production, through directly blocking NOS enzyme activity. Expand
Dietary alpha-linolenic acid decreases C-reactive protein, serum amyloid A and interleukin-6 in dyslipidaemic patients.
TLDR
Dietary supplementation with alpha-linolenic acid for 3 months decreases significantly CRP, SAA and IL-6 levels in dyslipidaemic patients and may provide a possible additional mechanism for the beneficial effect of plant n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in primary and secondary prevention of coronary artery disease. Expand
Modification of proinflammatory cytokine production by the antirheumatic agents tenidap and naproxen. A possible correlate with clinical acute phase response.
TLDR
A role for IL-6 in the continued stimulation of SAA production during RA is supported as well as a possible mechanistic explanation for the previous observation that plasma SAA concentrations decreased during treatment of RA patients with tenidap, but increased during treatment with naproxen. Expand
The Effects of cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory therapy on 24-hour blood pressure in patients with hypertension, osteoarthritis, and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
At equally effective doses for osteoarthritis management, treatment with rofecoxib but not celecoxib or naproxen induced a significant increase in 24-hour systolic BP, but destabilization of hypertension control occurred to some extent in all 3 treatment groups. Expand
Serum YKL-40 concentrations in patients with rheumatoid arthritis: relation to disease activity.
TLDR
Serum YKL-40 varies according to disease activity in RA, but provides in some respect information different from conventional markers, and may prove to be a new tool for the study of disease activity and pathophysiology of RA. Expand
Is there an association between the use of different types of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs and radiologic progression of osteoarthritis? The Rotterdam Study.
TLDR
Data suggest that diclofenac may induce accelerated progression of hip and knee ROA, whether this occurs because of a true deleterious effect on cartilage or because of excessive mechanical loading on a hip following pain relief remains to be investigated. Expand
The C-reactive protein but not erythrocyte sedimentation rate is associated with clinical severity in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee or hip.

TLDR
CRP is elevated in OA compared to healthy individuals, and is correlated with rheumatic disease signs and symptoms, including HAQ disability, joint count, and pain. Expand
Background diet influences the anti-inflammatory effect of α-linolenic acid in dyslipidaemic subjects
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ALA supplementation lowered the serum concentrations of inflammatory markers more profoundly when the background diet was rich in saturated fatty acids and poor in MUFA. Expand
