IJERPH, Vol. 16, Pages 3798: Neighborhood Deprivation and Risks of Autoimmune Disorders: A National Cohort Study in Sweden
Conclusion: This study is the largest to date analyzing the potential influence of neighborhood deprivation on ADs. Our results indicate that neighborhood deprivation may affect risk of ADs, independent of individual level sociodemographic characteristics. For health care policies, both individual and neighborhood level approaches seem to be of importance.
Conclusion: Chinese women had a substantially lower risk of venous thromboembolism during pregnancy and the postpartum period compared to that of Caucasians. The occurrence of pregnancy-related venous thromboembolism was largely confined to the early pregnancy period, probably related to the adoption of thromboprophylaxis, a lower rate of Cesarean section, and early mobilization.

CONCLUSIONS: Because of its pleiotropic roles in several reproductive events and its association with some life-threatening pathological conditions of pregnancy, bikunin may represent a non-invasive marker for improving follow-up and early diagnosis. Studies showing its usefulness as a drug for reducing the risk of preterm delivery and improving neonatal outcomes have yielded interesting results that deserve to be investigated through further research.

ConclusionsTaken together, these results illustrate a new model in which Purβ functions to regulate the glucagon/ADCY6/cAMP/PKA/CREB signaling pathway to help maintain glucose homeostasis.Graphical abstract
ConclusionsThe use of the tesaglitazar-[F7, P34]-NPY conjugate is a promising strategy to make use of the beneficial PPARα/γ effects in adipocytes while potentially omitting adverse-effects in other tissues.Graphical abstract

Conclusion: This review is focused not only on the mechanism by which the immune system protects us but also on the ways in which it can inflict the body and how to modulate it with therapy. Thus, understanding the interaction of a tumor with the immune system provides insights into mechanisms that can be utilized to elicit anti-tumor immune responses. Here, we have recapitulated the function of the tumor microenvironment and immune checkpoints.
Conclusion: Here we discuss the major implications of these findings for the association between microorganisms and cancer, and also between some immune pathologies, like autoimmune diseases, and cancer.
In this study, silk nanofibrous scaffold (3D) was fabricated by electrospinning and then its biocompatibility and non-toxicity by MTT assay. After that, scaffold supportive effects on human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) differentiation to insulin producing cells (IPCs) was studied at the gene and protein levels. IPCs related genes and proteins were up regulated in electrospun silk group significantly greater than tissue culture plates group (2D). In addition, another part of the results demonstrated that differentiated cells on 2D and 3D groups have great functional properties including C-peptide and insulin secr...
Publication date: Available online 15 November 2019Source: Neurochemistry InternationalAuthor(s): W. Zhong, N.A. DarmaniAbstractGlycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK-3) is a constitutively active multifunctional serine-threonine kinase which is involved in diverse physiological processes. GSK-3 has been implicated in a wide range of diseases including neurodegeneration, inflammation, diabetes and cancer. GSK-3 is a downstream target for protein kinase B (Akt) which phosphorylates GSK-3 and suppresses its activity. Based upon our preliminary findings, we postulated Akt's involvement in emesis. The aim of this study was to investi...
