This article, just published is adding to body of research of the anti-inflammatory actions of the tetracycline family. Recent related studies have been undertaken during the development of low dose doxycycline, for eg. oracea. So far this abstract isn’t teasing us with anything new. A similarly titled paper from 2006, Tetracyclines: their non-antibiotic properties also addressed this topic.
