The therapeutic potential of bone marrow–derived stromal cells for the therapy of Tay-Sachs disease is primarily related to the restoration of their own GM2 ganglioside storage. With this aim, we produced bone marrow–derived stromal cells from the adult Tay-Sachs animal model and transduced them with a retroviral vector encoding for the α-subunit of the(More)
We explored the use of new drug-loaded nanocarriers and their targeted delivery to the kidney glomerulus and in particular to podocytes, in order to overcome the failure of current therapeutic regimens in patients with proteinuric (i.e. abnormal amount of proteins in the urine) diseases. Podocytes are glomerular cells which are mainly responsible for(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW An increasing body of evidence indicates that bio-energetic metabolism of activated T cells is a potential target to control the autoimmune response in type 1 diabetes (T1D). RECENT FINDINGS T-cell activation and proliferation is linked to the cell capacity to provide sufficient energy and biosynthesis molecules to support T-cell growth(More)
Activation and maintenance of the T cell response occurs concurrently with metabolic reprogramming. This ensures the T cell response is supported by sufficient energy and substrates necessary for cell survival, growth and proliferation. Different metabolic programs are associated with differentiation into different cell subsets, effector function and(More)
