Abstract Type I interferons (IFNs) facilitate cancer immunosurveillance, antitumor immunity and antitumor efficacy of conventional cell death-inducing therapies (chemotherapy/radiotherapy) as well as immunotherapy. Moreover, it is clear that dendritic cells (DCs) play a significant role in aiding type I IFN-driven immunity. Owing to these antitumor properties several immunotherapies involving, or inducing, type I IFNs have received considerable clinical attention, e.g., recombinant IFNα2 or agonists targeting pattern recognition receptor (PRR) pathways like Toll-like receptors (TLRs), cGAS-STING or RIG-I/MDA...

(University of South Australia) Barbecued, stir-fried or roasted, there's no doubt that Aussies love their meat. Consuming on average nearly 100 kilograms of meat per person per year, Australians are among the top meat consumers worldwide. But with statistics showing that most Australians suffer from a poor diet, and red meat production adding to greenhouse-gas emissions, finding a balance between taste preferences, environmental protection, and health benefits is becoming critical.

Authors: Li J, Lo K, Shen G, Feng YQ, Huang YQ Abstract Objectives: The relationship between selenium and all-cause mortality has been inconsistent from observational studies and clinical trials. The present study aimed to reveal the relationship between serum selenium and all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality and the potential gender differences.Methods: All participants were recruited from the 1999-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). Participants with available serum selenium data were followed up until 31 December 2015. Cox proportional hazards models were performed to ...

GreenfieldIndividuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D) frequently fail to achieve glycemic goals and have excess cardiovascular risk and premature death. Adjunctive agents may play a role in reducing morbidity, mortality, and the adverse sequelae of insulin treatment. A surge in type 2 diabetes drug development has revealed agents with benefits beyond glucose lowering, including cardiovascular risk reduction. Could these benefits translate to T1D? Specific trials for T...
