Objective. Clavicle fractures are common injuries potentially associated with significant perioperative pain. However, this region’s complex sensory innervation poses a challenge for regional anesthetic or analgesic (RA) techniques. We conducted this scoping review to summarize the current literature, particularly with regards to motor-sparing tech...

Arctigenin (ATG), a lignin extracted from Arctium lappa (L.), exerts antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. We hypothesized that ATG exerts a protective effect on hepatocytes by preventing nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) progression associated with lipid oxidation–associated lipotoxicity and inflammation. We established an in vitro NAF...
Article
Background: Nod-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome is a multiprotein complex composed of NLRP3, caspase-1, and apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a caspase recruitment domain. Activation of NLRP3 inflammasome leads to interleukin-1β (IL-1β) upregulation and pyroptosis, a proinflammatory cell death characterized by increas...

To mimic the immune status of monocyte in the localized fracture region, toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) surface expression in human monocytic U937 cells was used as the main target to assess immune dysfunction following bone component exposure. We first identified the effects of bone components (including the marrow content) on TLR4 surface expression...
