In conclusion, we demonstrated that the VP3 expression mediated by rAAAV in ducklings could induce protective immunity against DHAV challenge, and this could be a candidate vaccine for the control of duck viral hepatitis. Keywords: avian adeno-associated virus; duck hepatitis A virus; VP3 gene; immunogenicity. PMID: 30879313 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractIL-9 is a pleiotropic cytokine, recently recognized as belonging to Th9 cells that are involved in various pathologies. We aimed to evaluate the role of IL-9 in the course of hepatic and renal fibrosis. Female C57BL/6 mice were treated subcutaneously with IL-9 10  ng/mouse and 20 ng/mouse for 40 days, alternating every 5 days each application, the negative control of which was treated with PBS and positive control with CCL4. IL-9 demonstrated fibrogenic activity, leading to increased collagen I and III deposition in both liver and kidney, as well as triggering lobular hepatitis. In addition, IL-...

This study aimed to investigate the effects of CyA on concanavalin A (Con A)-induced autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) and the underlying mechanism. CyA was orally administered to mice at 10 and 40 mg/kg 8 h before and 1 h after Con A treatment. The effects of CyA on Con A-induced spleen and liver in mice were assessed via histopathological changes, T lymphocyte amounts and the expressions of IL-1β and ICAM-1. Con A-induced L-02 hepatocytes were used to evaluate whether CyA (0.1–10 μM) can directly protect hepatocytes from cytotoxicity and the possible mechanism. The results revealed that CyA treatment c...
