Advancing our understanding of mechanisms of immune regulation in allergy, asthma, autoimmune diseases, tumor development, organ transplantation, and chronic infections could lead to effective and targeted therapies. Subsets of immune and inflammatory cells interact via ILs and IFNs; reciprocal regulation and counter balance among T(h) and regulatory T(More)
Although many research papers have studied diversity and differentiation within livestock species, genetic relationships among neighboring populations remain poorly understood. Here we apply recent methodologies to analyze the polymorphism of 14 microsatellites in 238 unrelated individuals belonging to six sheep breeds from Northern Spain to ascertain their(More)
BACKGROUND Although high vitamin A may be teratogenic to the embryo, retinol has been shown to support oocyte developmental potential in vivo. Similarly, addition of retinol metabolite 9-cis-retinoic acid to in-vitro cultured oocytes could promote cytoplasmic maturation and subsequent early embryonic development. The objective of this study was to evaluate(More)
The isomer 9-cis of retinoic acid (9-cis-RA) exerts a beneficial effect on bovine in vitro development when added to in vitro maturation (IVM) culture. In the present work, 9-cis-RA 5 nM was found to be stimulatory as opposed to 500 nM (toxic). Cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) were treated with the found physiological dose 9-cis-RA 5 nM, and the next(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of fibrinolytic therapy is limited by the small surface area of the clot that is available for the binding of the thrombolytic agent, such as tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA). We hypothesized that exposure of the clot to ultrasound during thrombolytic treatment could enhance lysis through perturbation of the thrombus, which(More)
In the present study, the effects of retinoid metabolite administration during in vitro maturation (IVM) on oocyte maturation, parameters of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and embryo development were examined. Varying concentrations of 9-cis retinoic acid (RA; 0, 5, 50 and 500 nm; Experiment 1) and all-trans retinol (ROH; 0, 125, 1250 and 12 500 nm;(More)
BACKGROUND Omeprazole is a non-competitive inhibitor of the parietal cell enzyme H+-K--adenosine triphosphatase. To date, two cases of angioedema and urticaria and two cases of anaphylaxis from omeprazole have been published. OBJECTIVE To report a new patient with omeprazole-induced anaphylaxis demonstrated by skin tests and increased serum tryptase(More)
BACKGROUND Tonsils are strategically located in the gateway of both alimentary and respiratory tracts representing the first contact point of food and aeroallergens with the immune system. Tonsillectomy removes only the palatine tonsils and sometimes adenoids. Lingual tonsil is anatomically big and remains lifelong intact. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study(More)
