Reversal of LPS induced endothelial cell TNF synthesis and increased permeability with microencapsulated antisense oligomers to NF-kappaB.

Abstract

Endothelial cells form the barrier between the circulation and interstitial space. Changes in permeability of endothelial cells allow penetration of inflammatory cells such as polymorphonuclear cells and macrophages to respond to infections and other inflammatory stimuli. Endothelial cells have also been shown to be phagocytic and produce pro-inflammatory… (More)
