AIM To study the systemic anti-inflammatory actions of interleukin-1 (IL-1) blockers, OB-101 and OB-186. METHODS Prevention of palm swelling induced by carrageenin injection was used as an animal model of systemic anti-inflammation efficacy. RESULTS Both OB-101 and OB-186 (10-30 mg.kg-1) were approximately 10-30-fold more potent than aspirin (300 mg.kg-1) to inhibit carrageenin-induced systemic inflammation. The LD50 of OB-101 and OB-186 were at least 20 g.kg-1 i.g., indicating that they…

Underproduction and overproduction of nitric oxide (NO) could lead to various eye diseases which could be corrected by providing NOS substrates or NO donors to lower the intraocular pressure, increase ocular blood flow, relax ciliary muscle, etc.

No donors and NOS substrates were able to stimulate protein release from RLG cells via activation of guanylate cyclase and c-GMP release, which was blocked by guanylated cyclase inhibitor, ODQ, indicating that NO donors andNOS substrate could be used for the treatment of dry eye syndrome.
