    Keywords : inflammatory bowel diseases; fibroblasts; CD40; C-EBPbeta; apoptosis; TGF-beta;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT Acute inflammation in the bowel, a response of the immune system to infections or trauma, is probably a frequent but localized event, but when the barrier is repaired and the infection cleared, it is quickly followed by wound healing and resolution. However, in some individuals these mechanisms are not effective and the inflammatory bowel diseases, Crohn?s disease and ulcerative colitis result. READ MORE

    Abstract : Osteoarthritis is an inflammation-related disease that progressively destroys joint cartilage. This disease causes pain and stiffness of the joints, and at advanced stages, limitations to the movement or bending of injured joints. Therefore, it often restricts daily activities and the ability to work. READ MORE
