BACKGROUND Maternal infection during pregnancy is a recognized risk factor for the occurrence of a broad spectrum of psychiatric and neurologic disorders, including schizophrenia, autism, and cerebral palsy. Prenatal exposure of rats to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) leads to impaired learning and psychotic-like behavior in mature offspring, together with an(More)
INTRODUCTION Regulatory T (Treg) cells play a crucial role in preventing autoimmune diseases and are an ideal target for the development of therapies designed to suppress inflammation in an antigen-specific manner. Type 1 regulatory T (Tr1) cells are defined by their capacity to produce high levels of interleukin 10 (IL-10), which contributes to their(More)
The mechanotransduction of vestibular sensory cells depends on the high endolymphatic potassium concentration ([K+]) maintained by a fine balance between K+ secretion and absorption by epithelial cells. Despite the crucial role of endolymph as an electrochemical motor for mechanotransduction, little is known about the processes that govern endolymph(More)
Promising immunotherapeutic strategies are emerging to restore tolerance in autoimmune diseases by triggering an increase in the number and/or the function of endogenous regulatory T (Treg) cells, which actively control pathological immune responses. Evidence suggests a remarkable heterogeneity in peripheral Treg cells that warrants their better(More)
Introduction Tocilizumab is a humanized anti-IL-6 receptor monoclo-nal antibody, which binds to circulating soluble IL-6 receptor and membrane-expressed IL-6 receptor, inhibiting IL-6 binding to both forms of IL-6 receptor. Tocilizu-mab is an efficient therapy for adults with moderate to severe RA in whom DMARDs or a TNF inhibitor has failed. However, the(More)
Dendritic cells (DCs) are key cells in immunology that are able to stimulate or inhibit the immune response. RNA interference has appeared of great interest to modulate the expression of immunogenic or tolerogenic molecules. In our study, pH-sensitive polyion complex micelles based on a double-hydrophilic block copolymer and poly-L-lysine were formulated to(More)
