Anti-inflammatory actions of an immunomodulator: therafectin 1,2-O-isopropylidene-3-O-3′-(N’, N’-dimethylamino n-propyl)-D-gluco-furanose, HCl
Most of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents in clinical use today are substituted aromatic organic acids. These agents are endowed with an unfortunately high incidence of toxicity1 which may have to do with unavoidable unwanted side effects of their powerful influence on that pathway of arachi-donic acid metabolism that leads to prostaglandin synthesis.
