The focus of our study is to compare the anti-inflammatory effect of extracts prepared from Algerian mollusk called Helix ,on induced lung inflammation in rats: aqueous AE, HE and organic OE extracts. Animals were classified into six groups: control group T was instilled with NaCl (0.9%) in the trachea, negative control group was instilled with in trachea (5mg//Kg), positive control group was instilled with and treated with an anti-inflammatory drug, groups SAE, SHE and SOE were instilled with and treated with aqueous, and organic extracts respectively (4mg//Kg). 24h after instillation, we sacrificed animals, blood samples and fluid lavage (BALF) were collected. Lungs were for investigation. We measured activity (MPO) in BALF. Results showed induces a massive in lungs. HE and OE decreased leukocyte count in BALF and blood. AE increased leukocyte count in blood and decreased it in BALF. The three extracts decreased MPO activity in BALF, reduced number of inflammatory cells in the and protected lung from beads injuries. Both AE and HE reduced edema in lung. We conclude that treatment with Helix had an anti-inflammatory effect on inflammation.

Abstract Background Treatment options for spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) are limited. A possible inflammatory response in the brain tissue surrounding an ICH may exacerbate the initial injury and could be a target for treatment of subsequent secondary brain injury. The study objective was to compare levels of inflammatory mediators in the interstitial fluid of the perihemorrhagic zone (PHZ) and in seemingly normal cortex (SNX) in the acute phase after surgical evacuation of ICH, with the hypothesis being that a difference could be demonstrated between the PHZ and the SNX. Methods In this observational study, ten patients needing surgical evacuation of supratentorial ICH received two cerebral microdialysis catheters: one in the PHZ and one in the SNX that is remote from the ICH. The microdialysate was analyzed for energy metabolites (including lactate pyruvate ratio and glucose) and for inflammatory mediators by using a multiplex immunoassay of 27 cytokines and chemokines at 6–10 h, 20–26 h, and 44–50 h after surgery. Results A metabolic crisis, indicated by altered energy metabolic markers, that persisted throughout the observation period was observed in the PHZ when compared with the SNX. Proinflammatory cytokines interleukin (IL) 8, tumor necrosis factor α, IL-2, IL-1β, IL-6 and interferon γ, anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-13, IL-4, and vascular endothelial growth factor A were significantly higher in PHZ compared with SNX and were most prominent at 20–26 h following ICH evacuation. Conclusions Higher levels of both proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines in the perihemorrhagic brain tissue implies a complex role for inflammatory mediators in the secondary injury cascades following ICH surgery, suggesting a need for targeted pharmacological interventions.

Abstract Purpose:Ulinastatin (UTI) is an endogenous protease inhibitor with potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and organ protective effects. The inhibitor has been reported to ameliorate inflammatory lung injury but precise mechanisms remain unclear. Methods: An in vivo model of lung injury has been constructed by intratracheal infusion of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). The number of neutrophils and the phagocytosis of apoptotic neutrophils were observed by Diff- Quick method. Lung injury was observed by HE staining .BALF cells were counted by hemocytometer and concentrations of protein plus inflammatory factors were measured with a BCA test kit. During in vitro experiments, RAW264.7 cells were pretreated with UTI (1000 and 5000U/ mL), stained with CellTrackerTM Green B0DIPYTM and HL60 cells added with UV-induced apoptosis and PKH26 Red staining. The expression of ERK5\Mer related proteins was detected by western blot and immunofluorescence.Results: An in vivo model of lung injury has been constructed by intratracheal infusion of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). UTI treatment enhanced the phagocytotic effect of mouse alveolar macrophages on neutrophils, alleviated lung lesions, decreased the pro-inflammatory factor and total protein content of BALF and increased levels of anti-inflammatory factors. in vitro experiments ,UTI enhanced the phagocytosis of apoptotic bodies by RAW264.7 cells in a dose-dependent manner. Increased expression levels of ERK5 and Mer by UTI were shown by Western blotting and immunofluorescence.Conclusions: UTI mediated the activation of the ERK5/Mer signaling pathway, enhanced phagocytosis of neutrophils by macrophages and improved lung inflammation. The current study indicates potential new clinical approaches for accelerating the recovery from lung inflammation.

Non-communicable diseases like diabetes and cancer are the major cause of death worldwide. Various drugs are used for the treatment of these diseases. However, they cause lots of side effects. There is a need for alternate drugs with fewer side effects. Medicinal plants serve as a good source for alternate form of treatment. Therefore, in this study, ethanolic and aqueous extracts of D. regia flowers were evaluated for their antioxidant, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic activity to justify its use as a medicinal plant. Total phenol and flavonoid content of the extracts were measured. GC-MS analysis of the extracts were done to investigate the presence of various bioactive compounds. Antioxidant activity was assessed by radical scavenging and reduction assays. Antidiabetic activity was assessed by the ability of extracts to inhibit enzyme alpha amylase. Anti-inflammatory activity was evaluated by membrane stabilization activity. Anticancer activity against MCF-7 and A549 cell lines were measured by the MTT assay.The ethanolic extract contained more phenols (282.940.80 mgGAE/g) and flavonoids (140.912.27 mgQE/g). GC-MS analysis showed the presence of compounds belonging to fatty acids, alkanes, phenols and organic alcohols. The aqueous extract showed strong superoxide radical scavenging activity with a low IC50 of 39.35±0.74 µg/mL. The ethanolic extract showed higher ferric reducing power with an IC50 of 59.65±0.28µg/mL. Ethanolic extract was more potent in inhibiting alpha amylase with a low IC50 value of 47.14±0.6 µg/mL. Ethanolic extract also showed maximum inhibition of 88.86±0.1% against heat induced lysis of cell membrane. Both extracts affected the proliferation of MCF-7 and A549 cell lines at 160 µg/mL. The results of the present study support the use of D. regia flower as a potential source of bioactive phytochemicals and can be used as a plant-based antioxidant, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory and anticancer agent.

AbstractGold (Au) can be deposited as nanoparticles (NPs) smaller than 10 nm in diameter on a variety of metal oxide (MOx) NPs. Au/MOx have high catalytic performance and selective oxidation capacity which could have implications in terms of biological activity, and more specifically in modulation of the inflammatory reaction. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the effect of Au/TiO2, Au/ZrO2 and Au/CeO2 on viability, phagocytic capacity and inflammatory profile (TNF-α and IL-1β secretion) of murine macrophages. The most important result of this study is an anti-inflammatory effect of Au/MOx depending on the MOx nature with particle internalization and no alteration of cell viability and phagocytosis. The effect was dependent on the MOx NPs chemical nature (Au/TiO2 > Au/ZrO2 > Au/CeO2 if we consider the number of cytokines whose concentration was reduced by the NPs), and on the inflammatory mediator considered. The effect of Au/TiO2 NPs was not related to Au NPs size (at least in the case of Au/TiO2 NPs in the range of 3–8 nm). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of an anti-inflammatory effect of Au/MOx.
