(47) However, our studies showed modulation of NFkB and AP-1-dependent transcripts at low concentrations of celecoxib, which is therefore likely to predominantly reflect the balance of eicosanoids acting in an autocoid fashion to regulate gene expression in chondrocytes, rather than direct effect of the drug itself.
adscendens, which is used in folk medicine to manage inflammatory disorders, including bronchial asthma, stabilizes smooth muscles against tone- and agonist-induced contractions (Addy and Burka, 1989) and would be expected to protect against cell membrane depolarization, leading to autocoid release and hence smooth-muscle contractions.

Proresolving lipid mediators are locally acting autocoids whose concentrations would be expected to be highest at sites of inflammation where they exert their effects.
