... cytokine-induced secretion of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). This inhibitory action has been associated with reduced expression of COX-2, without modulating COX-1 expression. This mechanism is associated with VA-induced destabilization of COX-2 mRNA, thereby depleting the functional COX-2 mRNA available...

... with substantial increase in energy expenditure leads initially to an increase in pro-inflammatory cytokines, and as a consequence, to decreases in IGF-1 levels. Further, if the training adaptation is successful, the proinflammatory cytokines fall, and with that decrease, the suppression of IGF-1 diminishes...
