Infectious bronchitis (IB) is a worldwide disease affecting chickens of all ages and causing important economic losses in poultry industry. Despite being one of the predominant IB virus (IBV) serotype in several European countries, slightly is known about pathogenesis and pathogenicity of Italy 02 serotype. In this study chicks and old hens were infected by(More)
African swine fever virus (ASFV), the causative agent of one of the most devastating swine diseases, has been considered exclusively cytoplasmic, even though some authors have shown evidence of an early stage of nuclear replication. In the present study, an increment of lamin A/C phosphorylation was observed in ASFV-infected cells as early as 4 h(More)
Dolphin morbillivirus (DMV) has caused 2 epizootics with high mortality rates on the Spanish Mediterranean coast, in 1990 and 2006-07, mainly affecting striped dolphins Stenella coeruleoalba. Following the first epizootic unusual DMV infections affecting only the central nervous system of striped dolphins were found, with histological features similar to(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 activity has been said to have a protective effect in asthmatic patients as a result of prostaglandin E(2) production. In order to elucidate the mechanisms involved, we evaluated the impact of selective inhibition of COX-2 with rofecoxib during ovalbumin challenge, assessing mast cell activity and airway response in a(More)
In this work the activation of transparent PS substrates by chlorosulfonation is described and their distribution in the subsurface region is analyzed. For this purpose XPS, FTIR-ATR and colorimetry have been used. It is shown that the electrophilic aromatic substitution of polystyrene in pure chlorosulfonic acid is extremely quick with complete surface(More)
OBJECTIVE To report 3 cases of skin rash with a peculiar livedoid pattern that were probably associated with imatinib therapy. CASE SUMMARY In the first case, a 74-year-old male diagnosed with Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+) chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), treated with imatinib 400 mg/day, developed a skin eruption with a livedoid pattern. Systemic(More)
The pattern of distribution of Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) in different tissues varies between species. The aim of the present study was to describe the distribution of TLR9 expression in selected tissues and organs of healthy pigs at 3 weeks and 3 months of age. Representative formalin-fixed samples of lung, thymus and secondary lymphoid tissues were(More)
Severe cases after pH1N1 infection are consequence of interstitial pneumonia triggered by alveolar viral replication and an exacerbated host immune response, characterized by the up-regulation of pro-inflammatory cytokines and the influx of inflammatory leukocytes to the lungs. Different lung cell populations have been suggested as culprits in the(More)
G-protein-gated inwardly rectifying K(+) channels (GIRKs; also called Kir3) are a family of K(+) channels, which are activated (opened) via a signal transduction cascade starting with ligand-stimulated G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Four GIRK genes have been identified (GIRK1-4). GIRK4 (Kir3.4) has a role in regulating energy homeostasis, since mice(More)
Free-living amoebae of Acanthamoeba genus are opportunistic pathogens distributed worldwide. Strains included in this genus are causative agents of a fatal encephalitis and a sight-threating keratitis in humans and other animals. In this study, 550 clinical samples which were collected between 1984 and 2014 from different patients with suspected infections(More)
