TLR3 Ligand PolyI:C Prevents Acute Pancreatitis Through the Interferon- β/Interferon-α/β Receptor Signaling Pathway in a Caerulein-Induced Pancreatitis Mouse Model
In this study, we have found that polyI:C pretreatment prevents caerulein-induced pancreas edema, neutrophil infiltration, the accumulation of ROS, and inflammatory gene expression in the AP mice models. PolyI:C-triggered IFN-β production and downstream IFNAR signaling activation are required for the suppressive effect of polyI:C in the caerulein-induced AP model. Our study has not only demonstrated the protective role of polyI:C in limiting AP, but has also suggested a potential application of TLR3 ligands in the treatment of AP. Materials and Methods Mice and Reagents Ifnb−/− mice and Ifnar1−/− mice were gifted from Genhong Cheng Laboratory (University of California, CA, USA). Tlr4−/− mice were purchased from Model Animal Research Center (Nanjing, China). Wild-type (WT) C57BL/6 mice were acquired from Vital River Laboratory Animal Technology (Beijing, China). All the mice were maintained in the specific pathogen-free (SPF) environment at Suzhou Institute of Systems Medicine (ISM) under a controlled temperature (25°C) and a 12-h day/night cycle. Male 8–10-week-old mice were used in all the experimental AP mice models. All mice experiments were undertaken in accordance with the US National Institutes of Health Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, with the approval of the Scientific Investigation Board of ISM, Suzhou. Antibodies against HO-1 (#70081) and GAPDH (#5174) were from Cell Signaling Technology (Danver...
CONCLUSIONS In a summary, by inhibiting the STAT3 activation, esculetin shows potential anticancer effects against the laryngeal cancer. PMID: 31630150 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: Despite the slight increases in the 10-year observation period a stable trend cannot be assumed. However, this study might be useful as baseline for other studies on SDM implementation. PMID: 31629688 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Ultrastructural changes in rat liver tissue in conditions of obstructive jaundice may be reversible after restoration of drainage. On the other hand, ultrastructural changes in renal tissue in cases of prolonged jaundice are irreversible even if the internal drainage is restored.

This study assessed the effects of the incorporation of Lactobacillus acidophilus LA-05 or Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. lactis BB-12 in the content and bioaccessibility of phenolics in red pitaya pulp. The oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) of the dialyzed (bioaccessible) fraction of red pitaya pulp fermented by these probiotics was also assessed. After 48 h of cultivation in red pitaya pulp, the pH and sugar contents decreased, while organic acids and viable counts of the tested probiotics increased (p
This article also intends to review advances in the botanical, phytochemical, pharmacological studies and industrial applications of R. tomentosa, which will provide a useful bibliography for further investigations and applications of R. tomentosa in medicines and foods.
Publication date: Available online 21 October 2019Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Khiena Brainina, Aleksey Tarasov, Ekaterina Khamzina, Natalia Stozhko, Marina VidrevichAbstractA new version of the hybrid potentiometric method (HPM) for evaluating the antioxidant activity (AOA) of fruits and vegetables, which we called contact (CHPM), is proposed. A screen-printed electrode pair coated by a membrane impregnated with a mediator serves as a sensor system. The potential shift, which is observed when the sensor system is exposed to the sample slice is used as a source of information. CHPM provides reproducible and correct res...
