Herb celastrus shown to reduce inflammation, bone destruction in joints
How do bones and the immune system communicate? The answer to this question is beginning to be answered thanks to a relatively new area of study called osteoimmunology. Over the past decade, work in the field has revealed that inflammation and immune activation can lead to bone damage. This crosstalk between the signal-transduction pathways of the immune and skeletal systems occurs at both the cellular and molecular levels and plays a key role in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis.
