Conclusions In the last decade, several efforts have been made to shed light into the molecular mechanisms driving the inflammatory response, in all its facets. miRNAs have been demonstrated to be pivotal players actively participating in the modulation of the early phase as well as the resolution of inflammation. Recent findings on their involvement in chronic inflammatory conditions, sepsis, and tumors strongly encourage the development of new miRNA-based therapeutic strategies. Author Contributions All authors listed have made a substantial, direct and intellectual contribution to the work, and approved it for public...

It is important to avoid unnecessary surgical intervention, because dietary control and methylprednisolone treatment are effective remedies.

ini E Abstract A diarrheic young cat died after neurological involvement. Biochemistry pointed to feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). The final diagnosis was severe multifocal meningoencephalitis due to Toxoplasma gondii. The presence of the parasite in the brain was confirmed using immunohistochemical staining. Concomitant feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and FIP were possible contributors to the clinical, fatal outcome. PMID: 30104776 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Ascione T, Di Flumeri G, Boccia G, De Caro F Abstract Patients with liver cirrhosis present an increased incidence of infections. The main cause has been founded in alterations of the enteric flora and of the intestinal barrier probably due to portal hypertension, in addition to a reticulo-endothelial system dysfunction. Furthermore, those living with cirrhosis can report a high predisposition to sepsis and septic shock, due to the excessive response of pro-inflammatory cytokines and a complessive hemodynamic derangement. By the analysis in the experimental model of the cirrhotic rat, it was demonstrated t...
