The Potential Role of T Helper Cell 22 and IL-22 in Immunopathogenesis of Multiple Sclerosis
Conclusion Recent evidence shows changes in frequency and function of Th22 and its cytokine IL-22 in patients with MS, which suggests a potential relationship between Th22 cells, IL-22 levels, and the development and disease course of MS and its response to treatment. How Th22 cells and IL-22 levels affect the disease course of MS requires further elucidation. Additional studies on the immunopathogenesis of MS, specifically the roles Th22 cells and IL-22 cytokines may play in disease progression, are warranted and may lead to the development of new therapeutic strategies for treating neuro-inflammatory diseases, such as MS.

However, the effect of MW radiation on human skin biology is not well understood. We study the effects of pulsed high-power microwaves (HPMs) on melanoma (G361 and SK-Mel-31) and normal human dermal fibroblast (NHDF) cells. A pulsed power generator (Chundo...

Authors: Afsharpooyan S, Mohammadian T Abstract Helicobacter pylori infection occurs throughout the world between countries and races. A seroprevalence study of H. pylori infection in the occurrence of atherosclerosis (ASc) has been considered to be the main cause of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in part of Iran. From 600 volunteers, 97 serum samples were selected and tested for the presence of H. pylori infection. Positive and negative H. pylori infection samples were then selected for Chlamydia pneumonia and cytomegalovirus infection. Their serum levels for high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and IL-6 tit...
CONCLUSIONS Our data demonstrate an oncogenic role of miR-652 in uveal melanoma, showing that miR-652 may be a useful biomarker for prediction of prognosis for patients with uveal melanoma. PMID: 31740654 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS The nude mouse orthotopic liver transplantation model of human HCC was shown to be a reliable model that has the potential for future research on the pathogenesis and progression of HCC and studies on drug development. PMID: 31736477 [PubMed - in process]
This study identified correlates of good screening performance for three common cancers, while weighing them against the backdrop of existing knowledge, to enable policy makers and healthcare providers focus appropriately to close the gaps that exist in cancer screening in our locale. Study design: Cross-sectional design. Setting: Tertiary health facility. Participants: Workers at Delta State University Teaching Hospital, Nigeria. Results: Females had significantly better knowledge of cervical cancer, p
In this report, we did a post-hoc analysis of cardiovascular and renal outcomes over 10 years following randomisation, including a 5 years post-intervention follow-up. As in the original trial, the primary endpoint was a composite of first cardiovascular event, including cardiovascular mortality, cardiovascular morbidity (non-fatal myocardial infarction and non-fatal stroke), revascularisation, and non-traumatic amputation, up to Dec 31, 2014. Analyses were based on the intention-to-treat principle. ADDITION-Europe is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT00237549.Findings343 general practices were randomly assigned to ro...
