Connecting Metainflammation and Neuroinflammation Through the PTN-MK-RPTP β/ζ Axis: Relevance in Therapeutic Development

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 neuroinflammation is still a question of great biologic interest. For its pattern of expression and its known signaling cascades involving important regulators of inflammation as Fyn kinase and ALK, RPTPβ/ζ is a target receptor for PTN and MK in neuroinflammation. Pharmacologic modulation of the PTN, MK, RPTPβ/ζ and/or its downstream effectors, Fyn and ALK, is a novel therapeutic strategy to modulate neuroinflammation, from central or peripheral origin, in different pathological contexts.

This study aimed at investigating the effects of dietary protein levels on the growth and liver transcriptome in juvenile Ancherythroculter nigrocauda. Six semi-purified diets were formulated containing 25 (control), 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50% protein. Each diet was fed to three groups of 35 fish (mean initial weight: 5.86 ± 0.10 g) for 56 days. The rate of weight gain and specific growth rate increased with dietary protein levels from 25% to 40%, but remained unchanged when fed with 45 or 50% dietary protein. The feed conversion ratio was significantly influenced by the dietary protein levels, being the lowest...

EDS in acute stroke was studied repeatedly, but there is a modest amount of data in post-stroke patients. The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of EDS and characterize sleep architecture in patients>3 months after stroke and identify factors which may affect EDS.66 patients were en...

While mostly studied at the meso- or macroscale, this article extends the focus to microscale commensuration. Based on fieldwork in a Norwegian emergency medical service, the article analyses how nurses rated patients' pain intensity on a scale from zero to ten. While nurses were instructed to score pain by combining patients' self-report with their own ‘ob...

ConclusionsThe results suggestthat the Calistar system offers similar efficacy in the treatment of anterior and both anterior and apical POP as compared to the Elevate. The use of anterior Calistar is associated with some additional benefits, i.e. SUI treatment in patients with concomitant anterior and both anterior and apical POP and SUI symptoms.
