It is generally accepted that the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) exhibit anti-inflammatory effects primarily through inhibition of prostaglandin (PG) synthesis. However, effects of NSAIDs on immune responses are not fully understood. This study investigated effects of indomethacin and a new NSAID (d-2-[4-(3-methyl-2-thienyl)phenyl]propionic acid, termed as M-5011 in this study) on cytokine production, lymphocyte proliferation, activities of natural killer (NK) and lymphokine… CONTINUE READING
