Emerging Roles of Protein Kinases in Microglia-mediated Neuroinflammation.

Emerging Roles of Protein Kinases in Microglia-mediated Neuroinflammation. Biochem Pharmacol. 2017 Jul 03;: Authors: Lee SH, Suk K Abstract Neuroinflammation is mediated by resident central nervous system glia, neurons, peripherally derived immune cells, blood-brain barrier, and inflammatory mediators secreted from these cells. Neuroinflammation has been implicated in stroke and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Protein kinases have been one of the most exploited therapeutic targets in the current pharmacological research, especially in studies on cancer and inflammation. To date, 32 small-molecule protein kinase inhibitors have been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of cancer and inflammation. However, there is no drug effectively targeting neuroinflammation and/or neurodegenerative diseases. Recent studies have advanced several protein kinases as important drug targets in neuroinflammation and/or neurodegenerative diseases. Here, we review emerging protein kinases potentially involved in neuroinflammation and subsequent neurodegenerative diseases. PMID: 28684305 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Wohlfert TM, Miller KC Abstract Clinical Scenario: Exertional heat stroke (EHS) is a potentially deadly heat illness and poses a significant health risk to athletes; EHS survival rates are near 100% if properly recognized and treated.1 Whole body cold water immersion (CWI) is the most effective method of lowering body core temperature.2 Precooling (PC) with CWI before exercise may prevent severe hyperthermia and/or EHS by increasing the body's overall heat-storage capacity.3 However, PC may also alter athletes' perception of how hot they feel or how hard they are exercising. Consequently, they may be unabl...

A digital healthcare startup is using an artificial intelligence (AI) platform to help aid in the detection of autism. Palo Alto, CA -based Cognoa said FDA has classified the algorithm-powered solution as a Class II diagnostic medical device. The FDA designation gives the company a path to get full clearance as a medical diagnostic for autism. “The goal actually is this summer to submit to the FDA to get full clearance under a de novo as a medical diagnostic,” Sharief Taraman, vice president of medical at Cognoa, told MD+DI. “I think we should be able to get that at the end of the year or by 201...

Abstract BackgroundThe platelet‐to‐lymphocyte ratio (PLR) has been found to predict clinical outcomes in borderline ovarian tumors and the other genital neoplasms. However, its prognostic value in patients with ovarian cancer remains controversial. The aim of this study was to assess its prognostic value in ovarian cancer. MethodsWe searched MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Cochrane databases to identify studies evaluating the prognostic significance of pretreatment PLR in ovarian cancer. The end points were overall survival (OS) and progression‐free survival (PFS). Pooled hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CI...

In conclusion, the present study demonstrated that TIGIT is a prominent negative immune regulator involved in immunosenescence. This novel finding is highly significant, as targeting TIGIT might be an effective strategy to improve the immune response and decrease age-related comorbidities.

Of these, neurodegenerative diseases are usually characterised by onset in late adulthood, progressive clinical course, and neuronal loss with regional specificity in the central nervous system. They include Alzheimer's disease and other less frequent dementias, brain cancer, degenerative nerve diseases, encephalitis, epilepsy, geneti...
