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.
