CONCLUSIONS: HGG patients have less species diversity of TCR repertoires compared with that of healthy individuals. TRBV9 regions in TCRs may be protective factors for long-term survival of GBM patients. PMID: 31205101 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 18 June 2019Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Fabiano V. Costa, Julia Canzian, Flavia V. Stefanello, Allan V. Kalueff, Denis B. RosembergAbstractThe ability to detect noxious stimuli is essential to survival. However, pathological pain is maladaptive and severely debilitating. Endogenous and exogenous opioids modulate pain responses via opioid receptors, reducing pain sensibility. Due to the high genetic and physiological similarities to rodents and humans, the zebrafish is a valuable tool to assess pain responses and the underlying mechanisms involved in nociception. Although morphi...

In this study, we discussed the function and mechanism of LRG1 in acute ischemic stroke from both basic and clinical research points of view. Mice underwent transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO) surgery two weeks after LRG1 was overexpressed by the delivery of adeno-associated virus (AAV). For wild-type mice, both the protein and the transcript of LRG1 in the brain tissue were elevated after tMCAO. Meanwhile, the serum levels of LRG1 were decreased after tMCAO. The neuronal injury was shown aggravated in the AAV-LRG1 group (AAV-LRG1 mice with tMCAO) through infarction volume, neurological score, HE, and Nissl ...

It has been reported that the expression of CaVα2δ1 increases in the dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) of animals with mechanical allodynia, and that the transcr...

Conclusion The expression of the components of the PTN-MK-RPTPβ/ζ axis in immune cells and in inflammatory diseases suggests important roles for this axis in inflammation. Pleiotrophin has been recently identified as a limiting factor of metainflammation, a chronic pathological state that contributes to neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration. Pleiotrophin also seems to potentiate acute neuroinflammation independently of the inflammatory stimulus while MK seems to play different -even opposite- roles in acute neuroinflammation depending on the stimulus. Which are the functions of MK and PTN in chronic neuroinfla...

CONCLUSION: Colchicine is a drug that over the years has shown promising results in certain neurosurgical entities. Its derivatives or potential colchicine-like agents might have a more significant place in neurosurgical practice. PMID: 29336254 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions:The present findings show that molecules as morphine are able to interfere with molecules normally unable to cross the BBB. This mechanism could be used for new approaches in therapy of refractory CNS tumors as glioblastoma.
