AbstractFish oil (FO) is a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids, with well-established beneficial effects in inflammatory diseases when FO is orally administered. This study investigated the effects of a topically applied FO preparation (FOP) on phenol-induced ear edema and evaluated the percutaneous penetration of FOP in ear tissue. After applying phenol, groups of mice received FOP on the ear. After 1 h, ear tissue was collected to determine the percent inhibition of edema, myeloperoxidase ac...

Abstract The pharmacokinetic of curcumin has posed a challenge to its therapeutic efficacy. Drug encapsulation systems, particularly microparticles, are promising due to their ability to protect compounds against both physical and chemical degradation and to improve their bioactivity. The aim of the present study was to prepare curcumin loaded solid lipid microparticles from carnauba wax and evaluate its antiinflammatory efficacy. Microparticles were obtained by hot homogenization technique and ...

This study investigated the effect of prostaglandin E1 (PGE-1) treatment on the biochemical and histopathological changes in a model of nephropathy that was induced using renal microembolism in rats. Wistar rats were assigned to three groups: a control group (C, normal), a renal microembolism (RM) group, and a renal microembolism treated with PGE-1 (RM + PGE-1) group. The renal microembolism was induced by an arterial injection of polymethylmethacrylate microbeads into the remaining kidney of ne...

: Anethole (AN) is a natural compound that has attracted great scientific interest because of its numerous biological activities, including anti-inflammatory effects. However, these effects were obtained with high doses of AN, which may be one limitation of its therapeutic use. This study evaluated the effects of a low-dose AN and ibuprofen (IB) combination on inflammatory parameters in Freund's complete adjuvant-induced arthritis (AIA) and arthritis-induced hepatic metabolic changes. Holtzman r...

: The aim of this study was to investigate some biochemical parameters of renal function and the vascular, glomerular, tubular, and interstitial manifestations in the progression of nephropathy induced by renal microembolism. Renal microembolism was induced by the arterial injection of polymethacrylate microspheres in the remnant kidney of nephrectomized rats. Animals 110-120 days old were randomly divided into three groups: the control group (C; normal), the nephrectomized group (S; nephrectomi...
: We report the case of a woman who was diagnosed with a pulmonary artery aneurysm that was caused by Behcet's disease. The patient was initially diagnosed with community-acquired pneumonia and then pulmonary thromboembolism and aneurysm of the right pulmonary artery segmental branch was confirmed. The initial treatment consisted of anticoagulant drugs. After analysis of the family history and a positive pathergy test, the patient was diagnosed with Behcet's disease. Oral pharmacological treatme...

ABSTRACTSolanum americanum Mill. has been traditionally used for the treatment of fever, stomachache, skin diseases, gynecological disorders, and different kinds of inflammation. This study evaluated the anti-inflammatory response of different extracts obtained from ripe fruits of S. americanum Mill., in experimental models and evaluated them qualitatively using ultrafast liquid chromatography with diode array and time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UFLC-DAD/TOF-MS). The inflammatory response of f...

Curcumin is the main curcuminoid found in turmeric rhizomes and is a strong candidate to formulate foodstuff with specific properties. Among various bioactive properties of curcumin, its antiinflammatory activity is remarkable; on the other hand, its low water solubility leads to low absorption. Thus, new formulations need to be developed to improve its efficacy, and encapsulation is a promising alternative strategy in this regard. The objective of the present study was to obtain curcumin-loaded...
