  • In all six RA subjects the histological appearance of synovia showed classic inflammatory pathology with mononuclear cell infiltrates and a thickened intimal layer.

  • Using the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III), a population-based representative sample of United States adults, we investigated the association between smoking and smoking cessation and levels of inflammatory markers and traditional cardiovascular risk factors.

  • Evidence has accumulated to suggest that chemokines, such as CXCL8 (IL-8), CXCL5 (epithelial cell-derived neutrophil-activating protein), CCL2 (monocyte chemoattractant protein-1), CCL3 (macrophage inflammatory protein-1α) and CCL5 (RANTES), direct the migration of leukocytes into the RA synovium and joint fluid [ 8 ] .

Even brief exposure to cigarette smoke has been shown to increase expression of IL-8 in primary cultures of human bronchial epithelial cells (HBEs) in the presence of dust mite allergen [ 4 ] . Increased release of the chemokine IL-8 has also been shown for cultured HBEs exposed to cigarette smoke extract (CSE) [ 5 6 ] and diesel exhaust particles [ 7 ] . However, the precise molecular events that bring about these intracellular changes and acute inflammation in lung epithelial cells are not well understood.
