Peanut allergy (PNA) has becoming a non-negligible health concern worldwide. Thus far, allergen-specific immunotherapy aimed at inducing mucosal tolerance has widely been regarded as a major management strategy for PNA. The safety profiles and the intrinsic probiotic properties of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) render them attractive delivery vehicles for(More)
BACKGROUND Mucosal vaccine based on lactic acid bacteria is an attractive concept for the prevention and treatment of allergic diseases, but their mechanisms of action in vivo are poorly understood. Therefore, we sought to investigate how recombinant major dust mite allergen Der p2-expressing Lactococcus lactis as a mucosal vaccine induced the immune(More)
AIM To investigate the involvement of Dickkopf-1 expression in gastric cancer. METHODS Dickkopf-1 mRNA and protein expression were determined by real-time quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) and immunohistochemistry in specimens of primary cancer and their adjacent noncancerous tissues in gastric cancer patients.

Allergic asthma caused by house dust mite (HDM) is becoming a public health problem. Specific immunotherapy is considered to be the only curative treatment, but it is always associated with IgE-mediated side effects in the therapy process. A few studies showed that the disruption of allergen IgE epitopes could reduce IgE reactivity and thus reduce(More)
Ovarian cancer (OV) is the most common and lethal gynecological tumor with a poor prognosis for women; however, the regulatory roles of the long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in ovarian malignant progression are insufficiently understood. Here, we investigated the expression patterns of lncRNAs and mRNAs in the high-throughput molecular profiles of 399 OV(More)
Ovarian carcinoma is the most lethal gynecologic malignancy among women. Ovarian cancer metastasis is the main reason for poor prognosis. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been shown to play an important role in tumorigenesis and metastasis in various cancers by affecting the expression of their targets. In this study, we explored the role of miR-194 in ovarian(More)
Although many lactic acid bacteria (LAB) influence the consumer's immune status it is not completely understood how this is established. Bacteria-host interactions between bacterial cell-wall components and toll-like receptors (TLRs) have been suggested to play an essential role. Here we investigated the interaction between LABs with reported health effects(More)
Raf kinase inhibitory protein (RKIP, also PEBP1) is involved in regulation of multiple cellular signaling processes and suppressing metastasis in animal models. Downregulation of RKIP expression has been shown to promote tumor progression in a variety of human cancers. However, its role and clinical significance in resectable esophageal squamous cell(More)
