Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoinflammatory condition of the central nervous system with impaired T helper (Th)17 and regulatory T cell (Treg) balance that is involved in disease immunopathogenesis. The vitamin A active metabolite, retinoic acid, can re-establish this imbalance through the modulation of gene expression of specific nuclear receptors(More)
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is considered as one of the most prevalent neurodegenerative disorders characterized by progressive loss of mental function and ability to learn. AD is a multifactorial disorder. Various hypotheses are suggested for the pathophysiology of AD including “Aβ hypothesis,” “tau hypothesis,” and “cholinergic hypothesis.” Recently, it has(More)
Vitamin A, considered to be an essential nutrient, has important actions in immunological responses and the central nervous system (CNS). Neuroimmunological functions of vitamin A are mediated through its active metabolite, retinoic acid (RA). In the CNS, RA contributes to regeneration and plasticity, while also playing a key role in enhancing tolerance and(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoinflammatory disease of the central nervous system (CNS). The immunopathogenesis of this disease involves an impaired balance of T helper (Th) 17 cells and regulatory T (Tregs) cells. MS is an autoinflammatory disease characterized by the degeneration of the CNS. For many years, MS has been considered to be an autoreactive(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the role of vitamin A on RORγt and IL-17 gene expression in multiple sclerotic patients. Patients in the vitamin A group received 25,000 IU retinyl palmitate per day, while patients in the placebo group took one capsule of placebo per day for 6 months. Gene expression was measured by real-time PCR at the first and(More)
Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) is one of the autoantigens used in evaluation of the CD4+ T cells proliferation response in multiple sclerotic patients. In cell culture, human serum (HS) is one of the promising substitutions for fetal calf serum (FCS) that can induce different autoreactivity of T cells and fluctuation of autoantibody production(More)
INTRODUCTION Breast cancer is one of the most women's cancers in the worldwide. In vivo and in vitro studies showed that all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) can modulate differentiation and apoptosis in both cancer and immune cells. Nuclear retinoic acid receptors (RARs) and retinoid X receptors (RXRs) activation in the presence of(More)

Migraine is a chronic nerves system disease leads to considerable disabilities and affected quality of life. Neuro-inflammation play a key role in progression of migraine which mainly caused by release of inflammatory mediators including COX-2 and iNOs enzymes, TNF-α،IL-1β،IL-6 and adhesion molecule such as ICAM and VCAM.Curcumin and omega 3 fatty acids(More)
