OBJECTIVE Macrophages influence their environment and surrounding immune cells as soon as stimulators affect them. Different sources of macrophages induce different reactions in their neighboring immune cells,which result in non-uniform immunologic outcomes. In this experimental research, we compare the behavior of peritoneal macrophages to(More)
BACKGROUND Development of agents that specifically kill cancer cells and simultaneously elicit antitumor immune response is a step forward in cancer therapy. In the present study, we investigated whether the administration of artemether contributes to the augmentation of antitumor immunity and the regression of tumor tissues in a mouse model of breast(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa as an opportunistic pathogen causes lethal infections in immunocompromised individuals. This bacterium possesses a polar flagellum made up of flagellin subunits. Flagella have important roles in motility, chemotaxis, and establishment of P. aeruginosa in acute phase of infections. Isolation, cloning, and expression of flagellin were(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are attracted to inflammation site and switch immune system to modulate inflammatory responses. This ability makes MSCs the best candidate cells for stem cell therapy of infection diseases. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the modulatory effect of adipose-derived MSCs (AD-MSCs) on macrophages in Leishmania (L.) major infection.(More)
