Humid, Windy Days Worse For Pain, Says New Study
(CNN) — Humid, windy days with low pressure make pain worse in those with long-term health conditions, according to new research. People with conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine and neuropathic pain are 20% more likely to suffer pain in such weather, reveals a study carried out by scientists from the University of Manchester, UK. “This would mean that, if your chances of a painful day on an average weather day were 5 in 100, they would increase to 6 in 100 on a damp and windy day,” said study author Will Dixon, professor of Digital Epidemiology, in a statement. Relatively high humidity is th...

CARD9 mediates dendritic cell-induced development of Lyn deficiency-associated autoimmune and inflammatory diseases
CARD9 is an immune adaptor protein in myeloid cells that is involved in C-type lectin signaling and antifungal immunity. CARD9 is implicated in autoimmune and inflammatory-related diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, IgA nephropathy, ankylosing spondylitis, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Given that Lyn-deficient (Lyn–/–) mice are susceptible to both autoimmunity and IBD, we investigated the immunological role of CARD9 in the development of these diseases using the Lyn–/– mouse model. We found that genetic deletion of CARD9 was sufficient to reduce the development of both spontaneous autoim...
