-It should be noted that some patients experience a drop in eye inflammation as soon as they start the ARB medication olmesartan. ​ This is because aside from its ability to stimulate the innate immune system, olmesartan has significant anti-inflammatory properties. Benicar binds and blocks the Angiotensin Receptor, decreasing levels of Nuclear Factor Kappa B, a protein that stimulates the release of inflammatory cytokines - causing a drop in inflammation.  ​For example, when researchers at the Keio University School of Medicine used a bacterial endotoxin to create a condition similar to uveitis in mice, they found that the eye inflammation of the animals decreased significantly after they were administered [[home:​othertreatments:​immune_suppressants:​telmisartan|Telmisartan]],​ +It should be noted that some patients experience a drop in eye inflammation as soon as they start the ARB medication olmesartan. ​ This is because aside from its ability to stimulate the innate immune system, olmesartan has significant anti-inflammatory properties.
