Adenovirus-mediated Gene Therapy for Allergy.

Adenovirus-mediated Gene Therapy for Allergy. Iran J Allergy Asthma Immunol. 2018 Dec 01;17(6):502-516 Authors: Ma S, Guan J Abstract Allergy poses a heavy health burden in modern society. Other than symptom-relieving medications, the only available treatment approach is allergen-specific immunotherapy, which in spite of offering a potential cure, requires a long treatment duration with multiple doses of allergen administration and carries a risk of anaphylaxis. Gene therapy has shown advantages in experimental studies for treatment of tumors, genetic diseases, chronic infections, and allergy. To date, adenovirus has been the most extensively used gene transfer vector, and offers high efficiency and safety. Here, we review studies of adenovirus-mediated gene therapy targeting different steps in the development of allergic diseases. Adenovirus-mediated gene therapy might be a promising add-on therapy for allergy treatment. PMID: 30644694 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsPatients with DM are prone to the early development of CAD, and psychological factors were associated with early development of CAD. Therefore, the findings of the current study can be utilized in designing preventive and therapeutic interventions, and implementing and integrating these factors in health-promotion programs for patients with DM can be useful.

Ko, Minami Tokuyama, Gavin Gyimesi, Camilia Soof, Mingjie Li, Eric Sanchez, Haiming Chen, Lin Radigan, James Berenson, Charlotte Cunningham-RundlesABSTRACTBackgroundPrimary antibody deficiencies (PAD) are the most prevalent primary immunodeficiencies. More severe forms of PAD, common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) and X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA), require immunoglobulin replacement therapy (IRT) and may have serious complications. Differentiating severe PAD from ...

HowellAbstractBackgroundAtopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory disease with significant local and systemic inflammation and barrier disruption. AD is associated with increased risk of allergen sensitization and skin colonization by Staphylococcus aureus. The heterogeneity of AD is unknown, and its complexity suggests its subdivision into several e...

Publication date: December 2019Source: Materials Science and Engineering: C, Volume 105Author(s): Abdul Wahab Jatoi, Ick Soo Kim, Hiroshi Ogasawara, Qing-Qing NiAbstractAlthough silver based nanofibers possess excellent bactericidal and bacteriostatic characteristics. However, excess release/contact with silver may induce harmful side-effects including carcinoma, argyria, argyrosis and allergies. Similarly, silver depletion may limit prolonged antibacterial activities as well. Thus present research proposes electrospun CA/ZnO/AgNPs composite nanofibers for biologically safer and sustained antibacterial applications. The Zn...

Great efforts have been made within the field of 21st Century Toxicology to provide non-animal testing approaches to assess the skin allergy potential of materials (e.g. chemicals, mixtures, nanomaterials, particles). Mechanistic understanding of skin sensitization process thr...
