Abstract null null Background null No data on circulating biomarkers for the prognostic stratification of Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM) patients are available. We prospectively explored the prognostic role of circulating monocyte and cytokine levels and their dynamic change during chemotherapy. null null null Patients and Methods null MPM patients receiving a first line treatment based on a platinum compound plus pemetrexed were eligible. Blood samples were collected at the baseline and a...

Abstract Spexin is a newly described peptide and is known to reduce the uptake of long-chain fatty acids into adipocytes. The serum spexin levels of obese children between the ages of 12–18 are lower. The effect of serum spexin and free 25(OH) vitamin D3 levels on intrauterine development in newborns is unknown. Our aims is to evaluate the effects of spexin and adipocytokin levels in the cord blood of term newborn babies on the weight of the baby according to the gestation age (GA) and anthropom...

Abstract Lactobacilli are abundant in the intestinal tract where they constantly regulate immune system via interacting with a great diversity of immune cells, such as dendritic cells (DCs). Notably, DCs are powerful antigen-presenting cells and they are capable of initiating primary immune responses. In this study, we studied the effects of Lactobacillus johnsonii (L. johnsonii) and Lactobacillus johnsonii cell-free supernatant (L. johnsonii-CFS) on the activation of porcine monocyte-derived de...

OBJECTIVE The dependence between gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) of Interleukin-34 (IL-34) level and Receptor activator of nuclear factor -kB ligand/ osteoprotegerin (RANKL/OPG) ratio in the severity of periodontitis might reveal an unknown pathway of diseases with bone destruction. There is no study about the evaluation of IL-34 levels together with GCF RANKL and OPG levels in periodontitis patients before and after non-surgical periodontal treatment (NSPT). The objectives of this research were...

Abstract Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) polymorphisms occur in diabetic patients. Previous work showed that TLR4 is in the retina of diabetic mice, as well as in retinal endothelial cells (REC) and Muller cells. Since we have shown that exchange protein activated by cAMP 1 (Epac1) can reduce inflammatory mediators, we hypothesized that Epac1 would inhibit TLR4 signaling. We also hypothesized that direct TLR4 inhibition would protect the diabetic retina. Human REC in normal and high glucose were tre...

Abstract Background Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a chronic, recurrent inflammatory skin disease that leads to scar formation. The immune pathogenesis of HS is not fully understood and inhibitors of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-17, IL-1, IL-23 can be used for treating HS. Identification of serum biomarkers may help understanding individual differences in HS pathogenesis, evaluating disease severity and developing more effective treatment methods. Objectives To assess the se...

OBJECTIVES Our study aimed to evaluate the cytokine levels in pediatric chronic non-bacterial osteomyelitis (CNO) patients and compare these with other immune-mediated diseases and healthy controls. METHODS In this prospective study, we included 42 children with CNO, 28 patients with non-systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), 17 children with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), and 30 healthy age-matched controls. In each of the CNO patients and comparison groups, the levels of 14...

Interferon-γ (IFNG) is one of the key cytokines that regulates both innate and adaptive immune responses in the body. However, the role of IFNG in the regulation of vascularization, especially in the context of Vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFa)-induced angiogenesis is not clarified. Here, we report that IFNG shows potent anti-angiogenic potential against VEGFa-induced angiogenesis. IFNG significantly inhibited proliferation, migration, and tube formation of Human umbilical vein endoth...

Abstract Childhood obesity is a global and increasing health issue. Inflammation and dysregulated adipose tissue secretion are common findings in obesity and have been related to poor metabolic function. Given that DNA methylation impacts gene expression and is responsive to environmental changes, we aimed, in addition to characterize the patients in anthropometric and biochemical terms, to determine the expression of cytokines and adipokines, assess the methylation on regulatory regions of the ...

Persistent inflammation, despite anti-retroviral therapy (ART), is an independent predictor of mortality and comorbidities in HIV infection. Multiple factors, including lifestyle and chronic viral coinfections, may contribute. Several of these factors are also associated with a chronic inflammation in the general population. Little is known about the degree to which these factors influence inflammation in HIV infection, particularly within the first year of ART. The purpose of this study was to ...
