OBJECTIVE Previous studies have shown that the bioflavonoid quercetin has anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive effects. [...] Key MethodMETHODS The present study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial in which 50 women with RA were allocated into a quercetin (500 mg/day) or placebo group for 8 weeks.Expand
Effects of quercetin supplementation on inflammatory factors and quality of life in post‐myocardial infarction patients: A double blind, placebo‐controlled, randomized clinical trial
TLDR
Quercetin supplementation in post‐MI patients for 8 weeks significantly elevated TAC and improved the insecurity dimension of QOL, but failed to show any significant effect on inflammatory factors, blood pressure and other QOL dimensions. Expand
Efficacy and mechanisms of dietary polyphenols in mitigating rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
The major mechanisms of RA prevention and symptom alleviation were the reduction of inflammatory mediators and inhibition of specific signaling pathways involved in the inflammatory response in rheumatoid arthritis. Expand
Impact of quercetin on systemic levels of inflammation: a meta-analysis of randomised controlled human trials
TLDR
Consumption of quercetin is a promising therapeutic strategy for chronic disease management and no relevant overall effects on peripheral CRP, IL-6 and TNF-α were observed. Expand
Anti-inflammatory and Hepatoprotective Effects of Quercetin in an Experimental Model of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
TLDR
QT has potential to support MX therapy, showing anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective effects in this model, and was associated with pathological changes in the liver and higher levels of transaminases when compared to the other groups. Expand
Therapeutic effect of quercetin in collagen-induced arthritis.
TLDR
It is determined that quercetin, which was non-toxic, produced better results than methotrexate for the protection of joints from arthritic inflammation in mice. Expand
Micronutrients: Essential Treatment for Inflammatory Arthritis?
TLDR
Significant evidence of the anti-inflammatory effect of several micronutrients in arthritis symptoms and inflammation is found and the addition of these nutrients to day-to-day eating habits could potentially change the natural history of inflammatory arthritis. Expand
A mechanistic insight of phytoestrogens used for Rheumatoid arthritis: An evidence-based review.
TLDR
Scientific evidences revealed that use of phytoestrogens from different chemical categories including flavonoids, alkaloids, stilbenoids derived from different plant species manifest beneficial effects on RA through various cellular mechanisms including suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Expand
Dietary fruits and arthritis.
TLDR
Common available fruits, such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, and pomegranates have shown promising results in reducing pain and inflammation in experimental models and in human clinical studies of arthritis. Expand
Therapeutic Potential of Flavonoids in Pain and Inflammation: Mechanisms of Action, Pre-Clinical and Clinical Data, and Pharmaceutical Development
TLDR
How the development of formulations containing flavonoids, along with the understanding of their structure-activity relationship, can be harnessed to identify novel flavonoid-based therapies to treat pathological pain and inflammation is focused on. Expand
Design of an anti-inflammatory diet (ITIS diet) for patients with rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
Feedback from highly motivated patients was critical in constructing an anti-inflammatory diet (ITIS diet) with elevated adherence for RA patients, which is being used in an on-going pilot study to determine their anti- inflammatory effect in pain and joint swelling in RA patients. Expand

Effects of Antioxidant Supplements Intervention on the Level of Plasma Inflammatory Molecules and Disease Severity of Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients
TLDR
Dietary supplementation of antioxidants at 900 mg/day for 4 weeks did not change the blood biomarkers of inflammation and disease severity of RA patients under conventional medical treatments. Expand
Putative analgesic activity of repeated oral doses of vitamin E in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Results of a prospective placebo controlled double blind trial
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is provided that vitamin E may exert a small but significant analgesic activity independent of a peripheral anti-inflammatory effect, but which complements standard anti- inflammatory treatment. Expand
Antioxidant intervention in rheumatoid arthritis: results of an open pilot study
TLDR
An open pilot study aimed to assess the clinical relevance of an antioxidant intervention as a first step in assessing potential beneficial effects of antioxidants on rheumatoid arthritis and confirmed a causal relation between changes in clinical condition and antioxidants. Expand
Rose hip herbal remedy in patients with rheumatoid arthritis - a randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
The results indicate that patients with RA may benefit from additional treatment with rose hip powder, according to ARA/ACR criteria. Expand
Selenium supplementation in rheumatoid arthritis investigated in a double blind, placebo-controlled trial.
TLDR
Selenium treatment did not show clinical benefit on rheumatoid arthritis and the improval in both groups demonstrated a placebo effect of the intervention trial. Expand
Quercetin: a potential natural drug for adjuvant treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
Quercetin (QU) is a kind of natural flavonoids, with lipid-lowering, anti-inflammatory and other pharmacological activities, and minor toxic side effects, and it is assumed that QU may be an adjuvant natural drug for treatment of RA. Expand
Quercetin reduces markers of oxidative stress and inflammation in sarcoidosis.
TLDR
Sarcoidosis patients might benefit from the use of antioxidants, such as quercetin, to reduce the occurring oxidative stress as well as inflammation, indicated by the increased total plasma antioxidant capacity. Expand
Dietary vitamin E and quercetin modulate inflammatory responses of collagen-induced arthritis in mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that dietary deficiency of vitamin E increases inflammatory responses and that antioxidants successfully suppress the inflammatory responses, however, significant clinical improvement may require longer observation. Expand
Therapeutic and preventive properties of quercetin in experimental arthritis correlate with decreased macrophage inflammatory mediators.
TLDR
Anti-arthritic effects of QU correlated with significant decrease of inflammatory mediators produced by peritoneal macrophages, ex vivo and in vitro, indicating that QU is a potential anti-inflammatory therapeutic and preventive agent targeting the inflammatory response of macrophage. Expand
The antioxidants curcumin and quercetin inhibit inflammatory processes associated with arthritis
TLDR
These studies suggest that curcumin and to a lesser extent quercetin may offer therapeutic potential for the treatment of crystal-induced arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Expand
