Toll-like receptor 2 stimulation of platelets is mediated by purinergic P2X1-dependent Ca2+ mobilisation, cyclooxygenase and purinergic P2Y1 and P2Y12 receptor activation.
TLDR
The results show that Pam3CSK4-induced platelet aggregation and secretion depends on a P2X1-mediated Ca2+ mobilisation, production of TxA2 and ADP receptor activation, which further support a role for platelets in sensing bacterial components.
The periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis cleaves apoB‐100 and increases the expression of apoM in LDL in whole blood leading to cell proliferation
TLDR
This study aims at investigating the proteolytic and oxidative activity of P. gingivalis on LDL in a whole blood system using a proteomic approach and analysing the effects ofP.
Effects of gadolinium oxide nanoparticles on the oxidative burst from human neutrophil granulocytes.
TLDR
The low cellular response upon PEG-functionalized Gd(2)O(3) nanoparticle exposure indicates that these nanoparticles are promising candidates for MR-imaging purposes, and suggests that the diethylene glycol (DEG) present in the as synthesized nanoparticle preparation is responsible for the inhibitory effects on the neutrophil oxidative burst.
Synthesis and characterization of PEGylated Gd2O3 nanoparticles for MRI contrast enhancement.
TLDR
A new design of functionalized ultrasmall rare earth based nanoparticles to be used as a positive contrast agent in MRI, and it is shown that PEGylated nanoparticles do not activate neutrophils in contrast to uncapped Gd(2)O(3).
Childhood Pemphigus Vulgaris Treated with Dapsone: A Case Report
TLDR
A 5-year-old boy developed hemorrhagic mucocutaneous blisters on various parts of the body leading to fetor, dysphagia, dysuria, anal pruritus, pain on defecation, and weight loss and was treated with a combination of systemic prednisone and dapsone which induced a rapid remission and controlled the disease well.
Enhancement of DTH reaction and inhibition of the expression of class II transplantation antigens by in vivo treatment with antibodies against gamma-interferon.
TLDR
It is concluded that DB-1 can inhibit class II antigen expression on keratinocytes during the DTH- reaction and also enhance the local response.
Chlamydia trachomatis in routine cervical smears. A microscopic and ultrastructural analysis.
TLDR
Cervical smears for cytologic evidence of Chlamydia trachomatis in 380 women seen for routine gynecologic examination or follow-up for an abnormal cervical smear revealed chlamydial organisms to be present only in nebular inclusions.
