Autonomic nervous system and immune system interactions.
TLDR
Both sympathetic and parasympathetic arms of the autonomic nervous system are instrumental in orchestrating neuroimmune processes, although additional studies are required to understand dynamic and complex adrenergic-cholinergic interactions.
Rat umbilical cord stem cells completely abolish rat mammary carcinomas with no evidence of metastasis or recurrence 100 days post-tumor cell inoculation.
TLDR
Unmodified human UCMS cells could be used for targeted cytotherapy for breast cancer by showing complete regression of tumors to undetectable levels by 34 to 38 days with no evidence of metastasis or recurrence 100 days post-tumor cell inoculation.
Central angiotensin II-enhanced splenic cytokine gene expression is mediated by the sympathetic nervous system.
TLDR
Results provide experimental support for the hypothesis that central angiotensin II modulates the immune system through activation of splenic SND, suggesting a novel relation between ANG II, efferent sympathetic nerve outflow, and splenic cytokine gene expression.
Comparative Experimental Infection Study in Dogs with Ehrlichia canis, E. chaffeensis, Anaplasma platys and A. phagocytophilum
TLDR
A significant overlap in clinical, hematological and pathological changes resulting from the infections with E. canis, E. chaffeensis, A. platys and A. phagocytophilum was revealed.
Diabetic ketoacidosis with concurrent pancreatitis, pancreatic β islet cell tumor, and adrenal disease in an obese ferret (Mustela putorius furo).
TLDR
This case represents the first report of concurrent diabetes mellitus, pancreatitis, pancreatic β islet cell tumor (insulinoma), and adrenal disease in a domestic ferret and euthanasia was elected.
Hyperthermia-enhanced splenic cytokine gene expression is mediated by the sympathetic nervous system.
TLDR
The hypothesis that heating-induced splenic sympathoexcitation would alter splenic cytokine gene expression is supported using gene array and real-time RT-PCR analyses and results support the hypothesis that hyperthermia-induced activation of splenic SND enhances splenicinflammatory gene expression.
Microarray analysis of aging-associated immune system alterations in the rostral ventrolateral medulla of F344 rats.
TLDR
The present results have identified age-related changes in the transcriptomic profile of the RVLM, modifications that may provide the molecular backdrop for understanding age-dependent changes in physiological regulation.
Chondrosarcoma in a dromedary camel (Camelus dromedarius)
TLDR
Chondrosarcoma arising from around the carpal joint with infiltration of carpal and metacarpal bones, and pulmonary metastasis, was diagnosed based on the histopathological and immunohistochemical evaluation.
Aging alters regulation of visceral sympathetic nerve responses to acute hypothermia.
TLDR
Testing the hypothesis that hypothermia-induced changes in visceral SND would be attenuated in middle-aged and aged compared with young Fischer 344 (F344) rats demonstrated that advancing chronological age alters the regulation of visceral S ND responses to progressive hypotherium, modifications that may contribute to the inability of aged individuals to adequately respond to acute bouts of hypotheria.
