Inflammation results from the innate biological response of vascular tissues to harmful agents, such as pathogens or irritants. It is an attempt by the organism to remove the injurious stimuli, protect the surrounding tissue, and initiate the healing process. However, unabated chronic inflammation also contributes to a host of diseases, such as atherosclerosis, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis. Elevated levels of oxidative stress play an important role in chronic inflammation. Oxidative stress-associated inflammation is thought to provoke early vascular events in atherogenesis, including the upregulation of vascular adhesion molecules and matrix metalloproteinase activity. These events require the activation of NF-kappaB, a transcription factor that induces expression of many genes involved in inflammation and endothelial cell migration. Given the oxidative nature of inflammation, therapeutic strategies aimed at mitigating oxidant production and oxidative damage have been investigated for decades in various models of inflammation.
