1 METHODS: In IL-1beta-stimulated FLS cells derived from rheumatoid arthritis patients, the anti-inflammatory activity of ACI was examined by analyzing the expression levels of inflammatory mediators such as TNF-alpha, IL-6, IL-8, MMP-1, MMP-3, MMP-13, PGE2, and COX-2 using ELISA and RT-PCR analysis.

2 RESULTS: The ethanolic extract (50% v/v) of ACI reduced the levels of TNF-alpha, IL-6, IL-8, MMP-1, and MMP-13 secreted by IL-1beta-stimulated FLS cells, whereas MMP-3, COX-2, and PGE2 were not significantly affected. Dinoprostone interleukin 1 beta Mus musculus
