Galectin-2 (Lec-2), a major component of Brugia malayi extracellular vesicles, is released by filarial worms, and was recently identified in the serum of persons with loiasis. We therefore sought to clone and characterize Lec-2, and to develop reagents to examine its potential as a biomarker and its role i...

Bauomy, Simeon Santourlidis, Esam M. Al-Shaebi, Saleh Al-QuraishyAbstractNanomedicine is one of the most important methods used to treat human diseases including parasitic diseases. Schistosomiasis is a major parasitic disease that affects human health in tropical regions. Whilst Praziquantel is the main classic antischistosomal drug, new drugs are required due to the poor effect of the drug on the parasite juveniles and immature worms, and the emergence of dr...

CONCLUSIONS: Short-term changes in exposure and subsequently in the spectrum of major contact allergens can best be illustrated by clinical surveillance based on routinely collected data and, if needed, preventive measures can be initiated. In addition to time trend analyses, subgroup analyses may offer important clues regarding the identification of sensitizing and eliciting exposures, respectively.

The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that comorbid type 2 immune diseases confer protection against morbidity and mortality due to acute infection. Design: Retrospective cohort study of patients hospitalized with an acute infection between November 2008 and January 2016 using electronic health record data. Setting: Single tertiary-care academic medical center. Patients: Admissions to the hospital through the emergency department with likely infection at the time of admission who may or may not have had a type 2 immune-mediated disease, defined as asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, or f...

CONCLUSIONS: Children in ECEC benefit from cooks' commitment to providing nutritious foods, however, the requirements to extend their role to respond to increasing demands without relevant system-level support and training puts the children at risk of not being exposed to health-promoting menus and possible errors in providing dietary modifications. ECEC cooks urgently need access to system-level support and training. SO WHAT: Understanding and addressing the barriers experienced by cooks and the complexity of factors that inform their food-related decision-making will sustain the implementation of effective, healthy e...

Nevertheless, the source of IgE serological memory remains controversial. We re-examined the mechanism of serol...
