VCAM-1

Vascular cell adhesion molecule 1. A cell-surface sialoglycoprotein encoded by VCAM1 on 1p32-p31, which belongs to the Ig superfamily, is expressed by cytokine-activated endothelium, and is involved in early inflammation. It mediates leukocyte-endothelial cell adhesion and signals transduction, recruiting monocytes and lymphocytes to the endothelial cell surface, triggering a chronic inflammatory response linked to atherosclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.

VCAM-1

A cell adhesion molecule that helps bind white blood cells such as lymphocytes or monocytes to the endothelium of blood vessels.

The gene expression pattern of pro and anti-inflammatory mediators, documented here after the LDE-MTX treatment by comparison with the controls, is highly suggestive that the novel preparation acts through inhibition of pro-inflammatory factors, such as TNF-[alpha], IL-18, VCAM-1 and MCP-1 and stimulation of the gene expression of anti-inflammatory factors such as IL-10.
