Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor Agonists: Do They Increase Cardiovascular Risk?

Table 3

Effects of PPAR and PPARα agonists on inflammatory mediators. Table shows the effect of PPAR and PPARα receptors modulation on the expression of various inflammatory mediators. ICAM: intercellular adhesion molecule; VCAM: vascular cell adhesion molecule; IL: Interleukin; TNF-α: Tumor necrosis factor-α; MMP-9: Matrix metalloproteinase-9; IFN: interferon; NF: Nuclear factor; iNOS: Inducible nitric oxide synthase; CRP: C-Reactive protein; CD40L: CD40 Ligand; LOX-1: low-density lipoprotein receptor-1; AP-1: Activator protein-1 [29, 30, 3858].
