UNISON urges Bangor University to ‘ put people before buildings ’
Bangor University is set to make 200 staff members redundant, including 120 support staff roles in accommodation, estates, IT, examinations, academic registry and libraries together with 80 academic jobs. The University started a consultation last month about how to make up a financial shortfall and has now shared the restructure proposals with staff. The proposal outlines what would be the third round of job cuts in as many years and has been attributed to ‘an anticipated shortfall in income, mainly related to international student recruitment’ and will require the university to find £13m of savings.

Experimental approaches to evaluate leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions in sepsis and inflammation
Sepsis is a life-threatening syndrome of organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection characterized by excessive neutrophil infiltration into vital organs. In sepsis, patients often die of organ failure and therapies directed against endothelial cell dysfunction and tissue damage are important targets for treatment of this disease. Novel approaches are required to understand the underlying pathophysiology of neutrophil dysregulation and neutrophil-endothelial cell interactions that play a critical role in the early course of organ damage and disruption of endothelial protective barrier. Here, we re...

IL-1beta suppression of VE-cadherin transcription underlies sepsis-induced inflammatory lung injury
Unchecked inflammation is a hallmark of inflammatory tissue injury in diseases such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Yet the mechanisms of inflammatory lung injury remain largely unknown. Here we showed that bacterial endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and cecal ligation and puncture-induced (CLP-induced) polymicrobial sepsis decreased the expression of transcription factor cAMP response element binding (CREB) in lung endothelial cells. We demonstrated that endothelial CREB was crucial for VE-cadherin transcription and the formation of the normal restrictive endothelial adherens junctions. The inflammatory cy...

Translating genetic risk of Alzheimers disease into mechanistic insight and drug targets
To provide better prevention and treatment, we need to understand the environmental and genetic risks of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, the definition of AD has been confounded with dementia in many studies. Thus, overinterpretation of genetic findings with regard to mechanisms and drug targets may explain, in part, controversies in the field. Here, we analyze the different forms of genetic risk of AD and how these can be used to model disease. We stress the importance of studying gene variants in the right cell types and in the right pathological context. The lack of mechanistic understanding of genetic variatio...

Unlike those vaccine candidates, which all require two shots, J&J’s vaccine involves a single injection. That means it could require half the number of doses to immunize the same number of people.

Ulcers are sometime noticed by the physician and not the family as in the case of herpangina or hand-foot and mouth disease.
