Abstract Autoimmune disease (AID) is a condition in which the immune system breaks down and starts to attack the body. Some common AIDs include rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, type 1 diabetes mellitus and so forth. The changes in T-cell receptor (TCR) repertoire have been found in several autoimmune diseases, and may be responsible for the breakdown of peripheral immune tolerance. In this review, we discussed the processes of TCR revision in peripheral immune environment, the changes in TCR repertoire that occurred in various AIDs, and the specifically expanded T cell clones. We hope our discus...

Abstract Nanotechnology is gaining significant attention worldwide for the treatment of complex disease such as AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome), cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology used for diagnosis and treatment for the disease that includes the preservation and improvement of human health by covering an area such as drug delivery using nanocarriers, nanotheranostics and nanovaccinology. The present article provides an insight on several aspects of nanomedicine such as usages of multiple type of nanocarriers, their status, advantages and disadvantages wit...

This study will provide an up-to-date review regarding nutritional considerations and resistance exercise countermeasures in the prevention of muscle mass loss and recovery of muscle mass in muscle atrophy secondary to immobilization or in sarcopenic obesity. We do not address muscle atrophy in disease states associated with inflammation (rheumatoid arthritis, COPD, cancer cachexia, AIDS, burns, sepsis, and uremia) which are governed by particular mechanisms of muscle loss.

In this study, we integrated 5 Cytokine-Chips from genome-wide DNA methylation datasets of the 3 kind of AIDs, delta-beta value was calculated for intergroup difference, and comprehensive bioinformatics analyses of cytokine genes with aberrant methylations were performed. 125 shared differential methylation variabilities (DMVs) were identified. There were 102 shared DMVs with similar methylation status; 3 hypomethylated differential methylation regions (DMRs) across the AIDs were found, and all 3 DMRs were hypomethylated. DMRs (AZU1, LTBR, and RTEL1) were likely to serve as activator in the inflammatory process. Particular...

BontropMHC class I and II molecules play an important role in the adaptive immune response. The genes encoding the MHC molecules are highly polymorphic, thus enabling each molecule to bind a unique repertoire of peptides, which are then presented to T cells, and may induce an immune reaction. MHC class I and II alleles of non-human primates (NHP) have been shown to influence the susceptibility or resistance to various diseases: for example, autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and multiple s...

Conclusion The results of this study identified gaps in the evidence on the effectiveness of grab bags, and found variations in guidelines and promotion practices across different countries. With the implementation of the Sendai Framework and its emphasis on an all-of-society approach to DRR1, there is an opportunity to raise widespread awareness of the importance of household preparedness. Grab bags are recognized as an important strategy to support DRR, however the need for an evidence base must be addressed to support investments in this area. 7.0 Appendix Table 2: Embase search strategy # Searches Results ...
