Ko, Minami Tokuyama, Gavin Gyimesi, Camilia Soof, Mingjie Li, Eric Sanchez, Haiming Chen, Lin Radigan, James Berenson, Charlotte Cunningham-RundlesABSTRACTBackgroundPrimary antibody deficiencies (PAD) are the most prevalent primary immunodeficiencies. More severe forms of PAD, common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) and X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA), require immunoglobulin replacement therapy (IRT) and may have serious complications. Differentiating severe PAD from ...

HowellAbstractBackgroundAtopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory disease with significant local and systemic inflammation and barrier disruption. AD is associated with increased risk of allergen sensitization and skin colonization by Staphylococcus aureus. The heterogeneity of AD is unknown, and its complexity suggests its subdivision into several e...

Publication date: December 2019Source: Materials Science and Engineering: C, Volume 105Author(s): Abdul Wahab Jatoi, Ick Soo Kim, Hiroshi Ogasawara, Qing-Qing NiAbstractAlthough silver based nanofibers possess excellent bactericidal and bacteriostatic characteristics. However, excess release/contact with silver may induce harmful side-effects including carcinoma, argyria, argyrosis and allergies. Similarly, silver depletion may limit prolonged antibacterial activities as well. Thus present research proposes electrospun CA/ZnO/AgNPs composite nanofibers for biologically safer and sustained antibacterial applications. The Zn...

Great efforts have been made within the field of 21st Century Toxicology to provide non-animal testing approaches to assess the skin allergy potential of materials (e.g. chemicals, mixtures, nanomaterials, particles). Mechanistic understanding of skin sensitization process thr...
