Authors: Poddighe D, Mathias CB, Brambilla I, Marseglia GL, Oettgen HC Abstract Several experimental studies in mice showed that basophils participate in the initiation of Th2 adaptive immune response, in addition to the effector phase. However, the role of basophils in allergic airway inflammation is less clear. The aim of this experiment was to assess the importance of basophils in recruiting inflammatory cells and, in particular, eosinophils in a murine model of asthma induced by Aspergillus fumigatus allergens. Additionally, bronchial reactivity was evaluated. Basophil depletion resulted in a reduction of infla...

Authors: Nazar M, Khan MS, Ijaz M, Anjum AA, Sana S, Setyawan EMN, Saleem MI, Ahmad I Abstract Toxigenic potential of different candidate fungi, isolated from rice straw feed of Degnala disease affected bovines was analyzed along with species, age, gender and seasonal prevalence. Of 1,536 cases, 104 (6.77%) showed positive signs with a significant association (p less than 0.05) between this disease and rice straw feeding, in buffaloes, and bovine aged over 1 year in the winter season. Complete blood count showed a marked increase in erythrocyte sedimentation rate and all white blood cells numbers, except lymphocyte...

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a rare primary immunodeficiency caused by a germline defect in one of the genes (CYBB, NCF1, CYBA, NCF2) encoding the NADPH oxidase 2 (NOX2) components responsible for the phagocyte oxidative burst and the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). An early diagnosis and a prompt treatment are crucial for improving outcomes in affected patients. CGD is usually diagnosed in early childhood, and more than 95% of cases are diagnosed by the age of 5 years [1, 2]. However, CGD can be diagnosed late in adulthood [1–3]. Aside from residual NOX2 activity, factors underlying late ...

Publication date: September 2018 Source:Food Hydrocolloids, Volume 82 Author(s): Mohamed Gomaa, Awatief F. Hifney, Mustafa A. Fawzy, Khayria M. Abdel-Gawad Alginate and fucoidan extracted from the brown macroalga Sargassum latifolium and chitosan derived from the filamentous fungus Aspergillus niger were used for the development of edible films with natural antioxidant properties. The incorporation of fucoidan and/or Ca2+ into the alginate-chitosan films decreased water solubility, but increased film thickness, water vapor permeability and oxygen permeability. The developed films showed good barrier properties against ult...
