7-Chloro-3-methyl-3-4-dihydro-2H-1,2,4 benzothiadiazine S,S-dioxide (IDRA 21): a benzothiadiazine derivative that enhances cognition by attenuating
Results indicate that IDRA 21 given orally to rats presumably crosses the blood-brain barrier and acts stereoselectively on specific receptors that were operative during this behavioral procedure, and suggest thatIDRA 21 improves cognition by acting on a stereoselected site of AMPA receptor that is operative in attenuating the rapid autodesensitization of these receptors.

The identification of a low molecular mass bacteriocin, rhamnosin A, produced by Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain 68
Aims:  This study focuses on the isolation and characterization of a peptide with bacteriocin‐like properties isolated from Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain 68, previously identified by 16S rRNA geneExpand
Mitochondrial diazepam-binding inhibitor receptor complex agonists antagonize dizocilpine amnesia: putative role for allopregnanolone.
It is inferred that the amnesic effect of dizocilpine is counteracted by FGIN-1-27, 4'CD and pregnenolone sulfate because of their ability to increase brain accumulation of allopregnanolone. Expand
LIGA20, a lyso derivative of ganglioside GM1, given orally after cortical thrombosis reduces infarct size and associated cognition deficit.
Here, by an unknown molecular mechanism, LIGA20 selectively reduces the pathological amplification of Ca2+ signaling elicited by persistent stimulation of ionotropic glutamate receptors in the area penumbra, which attenuates the associated cognition deficits. Expand
Development of Sandwich Enzyme‐Linked Immunosorbent Assay for Determination of Tetanus Toxoid Concentration
A sandwich enzyme‐linked immunosorbent assay (sELISA) was developed for a rapid and sensitive quantification of tetanus toxoid (TTd) and its good reproducibility suggest that the developed method could be reliably used to estimate the concentration of TTd, which could be easily extrapolated to the estimation of vaccine potency.

Induction of decreased fecundity by tetanus toxoid hyper-immunization in C57BL/6 mice depends on the applied adjuvant
A decrease in fecundity was recorded in only C57BL/6 mice immunized with alhydrogel adjuvant, irrespective of the kind of applied pretreatment; it was associated with an increase in abundance of low affinity anti-β2GPI IgG antibodies and Th1 prevalence. Expand
In vitro stimulation of Balb/c and C57 BL/6 splenocytes by a recombinantly produced banana lectin isoform results in both a proliferation of T cells and an increased secretion of interferon-gamma.
It is shown that the responses of Balb/c- and C57 BL/6-originated splenocytes to rBanLec stimulation differ both qualitatively and in intensity, suggesting that genetic background must be an important consideration in any further investigations using animal models or when exploring r BanLec's potential human applications.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: Murine Monoclonal Antibody 26 Raised Against Tetanus Toxoid Cross‐Reacts with β2‐Glycoprotein I: Its Characteristics and Role in Molecular Mimicry
To avoid the influence of polyclonality and to further analyse the connection between molecular mimicry and APS, monoclonal antibodies are produced against tetanus toxoid and tested their reactivity against β2GPI. Expand
Effects of orally applied Fes p1-displaying L. plantarum WCFS1 on Fes p1 induced allergy in mice.
Oral application of L. plantarum WCFS1 has a beneficial therapeutic effect in a mouse model of Fes p1 allergy, which potentiates this phenomenon in an allergen specific way. Expand
Active Lactobacillus rhamnosus LA68 or Lactobacillus plantarum WCFS1 administration positively influences liver fatty acid composition in mice on a HFD regime.
The fatty acid composition of mouse liver tissue changed significantly due to probiotic administration during a 12 weeks HFD regime and active Lactobacillus administration had a slightly reversing effect toward the standard mouse diet group, but after the washout period these changes disappeared.
