One experimental approach for the treatment of allergic reactions is the stimulation of immunoregulatory NKT cells with the synthetic glycolipid αgalactosylceramide. For a first evaluation of the immunomodulatory potential of αGalCerMPEG a human in vitro allergy model was exploited. Acting as an adjuvant, the glycolipid induced an enhanced Th1-biased(More)
In this study, we determined whether the calcium-dependent protein kinase (PKC) signaling pathway is involved in the improvement of fear memory reconsolidation induced by the intrahippocampal administration of spermidine in rats. Male Wistar rats were trained in a fear conditioning apparatus using a 0.4-mA footshock as an unconditioned stimulus. Twenty-four(More)
According to the hygiene hypothesis, triggering the immune system with microbial components during childhood balances the inherent Th2 bias. In contrast, specific immunotherapy involves exposure of the patient to the allergen in order to achieve desensitization to subsequent contact. In a human in vitro allergy model the potential of the TLR2/6 agonist(More)
