Assessing the Inhibitory Activity of Oligonucleotides on TLR7 Sensing
Aberrant sensing of self-nucleic acids by Toll-like receptor (TLR) 7, 8, or 9 is associated with several autoimmune disorders, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, or systemic sclerosis. In recent years, several classes of synthetic oligonucleotides have been shown to antagonize sensing of immunostimulatory nucleic acids by TLR7/8/9, indicating that these molecules could have therapeutic applications in such autoimmune diseases. Conversely, synthetic oligonucleotides used in therapeutic technologies such as antisense and microRNA inhibitors also have the potential to inhibit TLR7/8...

Investigating the Role of Toll-Like Receptors in Models of Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by persistent synovial inflammation leading to tissue destruction and progressive loss of joint function. Here we describe two methods that can be used to assess the contribution of toll-like receptors (TLRs), and their potential ligands, to RA pathogenesis. We focus on the antigen-induced model of murine arthritis and human synovial tissue explant models. Both enable detection of TLR, and TLR ligand, expression, as well as investigation of the effect of inhibition of these molecules. Each offers a unique insight into disease; with murine models allowi...

Delineating the Role of Toll-Like Receptors in the Neuro-inflammation Model EAE
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is the most relevant and commonly used animal model to study autoimmune demyelinating diseases like Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In EAE, the activation of CD4+ T-cells is considered to be the main trigger leading to inflammation and central nervous system (CNS) demyelination. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are the most important and first class of pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) in innate immune system and play critical roles in initiating inflammatory responses and promoting adaptive immune responses due to their ability to recognize a wide range of pathogen associated molecula...

The Use of MiRNA Antagonists in the Alleviation of Inflammatory Disorders
Toll-like receptors (TLR), a family of pattern-recognition receptors (PRRs) stimulated by pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs), generate antigen-triggered innate and adaptive immune responses. Recent studies have indicated that several small, regulatory RNAs, called microRNAs (miRNas), are induced by TLR activation in immune cells and that many microRNAs can control the inflammatory process and response to infection by positively or negatively regulating TLR signaling. Among these miRNAs, aberrant microRNA-155 (miR-155) has been implicated in diverse immune processes including the pathogenesis of several autoimmu...

Lambert-Eaton Syndrome: Causes, Symptoms & Treatments
Lambert-Eaton syndrome also known as, 'Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome,' is a condition in which a person's immune system attacks their neuromuscular junctions, the areas where your nerves and muscles connect. Usually a person's nerve cells pass signals along to their muscles. The signals help to make your muscles move. Due to the fact that Lambert-Eaton syndrome affects the way a person's nerves and muscles communicate, moving muscles becomes difficult. (Source: Disabled World)

Third-Kind Encounters in Biomedicine: Immunology Meets Mathematics and Informatics to Become Quantitative and Predictive
The understanding of the immune response is right now at the center of biomedical research. There are growing expectations that immune-based interventions will in the midterm provide new, personalized, and targeted therapeutic options for many severe and highly prevalent diseases, from aggressive cancers to infectious and autoimmune diseases. To this end, immunology should surpass its current descriptive and phenomenological nature, and become quantitative, and thereby predictive. (Source: Springer protocols feed by Bioinformatics)

Chemotherapy Isn't Only for Cancer Patients
When you hear the word chemotherapy what immediately comes to mind? Cancer. Bald. Nausea. Vomiting. Infusions. Sterility. Bone Pain? Upon hearing that word, most people jump to the same conclusions, with the same general consensus on how chemo works, who receives it, and what side effects it has on the body. The truth is chemotherapy isn't only for cancer patients, and affects each patient differently depending on how it is used. Chemotherapy is a widely used class of drugs to treat many different disorders including, but not limited to: cancers, blood disorders, and a plethora of autoimmune diseases. Similarly it can be ...

Are you a baseball fan? Even if you’re not, you have to admire New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon.

PRP utilizes platelets from an athletes’ own blood to rebuild a damaged tendon or cartilage. I began offering PRP therapy at my Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine a few weeks ago and the results I’ve seen from this therapy have just been incredible. Five years ago, Colon was considered washed-up at age 37. His pitching arm was shot. He had severe ligament damage and a tor...

Nutritional psychiatry: Your brain on food
Think about it. Your brain is always “on.” It takes care of your thoughts and movements, your breathing and heartbeat, your senses — it works hard 24/7, even while you’re asleep. This means your brain requires a constant supply of fuel. That “fuel” comes from the foods you eat — and what’s in that fuel makes all the difference. Put simply, what you eat directly affects the structure and function of your brain and, ultimately, your mood. Like an expensive car, your brain functions best when it gets only premium fuel.
