Some researchers suggested that the inflammatory response
might determine postoperative recovery and complications.
Embryonic stem cells, although controversial, are resilient, and many animal studies have shown that embryonic stem cells limit inflammatory responses
and promote cell growth.
Wu said the inducible 6-phosphorofructo-2-kinase (iPFK2) enzyme links metabolic and inflammatory responses
and may underlie what he refers to as "healthy" obesity.
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) is an enzyme involved in prostaglandin biosynthesis, and plays a key role in the inflammatory response
In an upcoming Toxicology Letters, they examine the responses of cultured macrophages, the cells responsible for clearing pathogens from the lung and regulating the inflammatory response
In a nested case-control study of 199 serum samples from women enrolled in the Vaginal Infections and Prematurity Study between 23 and 26 weeks' gestation and followed until delivery, median concentrations of granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) were significantly higher in samples from women with asymptomatic trichomoniasis than in those without the infection, indicating a systemic inflammatory response
Cortisone, while useful for treating bursitis, disrupts the beneficial inflammatory response
essential to the healing process and therefore should not be injected into tendon.
When patients do respond to treatment, they develop a brisk inflammatory response
and erythema, usually within 4-8 weeks of starting treatment, Dr.
Based on research in AMAA runners, an acute inflammatory response
with procoagulant effects during rhabdomyolysis may play a role in triggering sudden cardiac death, analogous perhaps to acute cardiac events related to inflammation following small pox immunizations in an older population with underlying if previously undiagnosed coronary heart disease.
Cardiopulmonary bypass exposes the blood to large areas of synthetic materials, which induces a systemic inflammatory response
The BST-GEL(TM) was also found to localize as a deposit at the site of administration by injection, without causing any inflammatory response
or other obvious indications of systemic effects, such as overt clinical signs, mortality, and loss of appetite or of body weight.
Since papain is closely related to cathepsin B, a thiol endopeptidase which is released by cells of the inflammatory response
, the authors concluded that segmented poly-etherurethanes can be degraded by enzymes which are present during the inflammatory response
