Innate and adaptive immunity contribute to the pathogenesis of autoimmune arthritis by generating and maintaining inflammation, which leads to tissue damage. Current biological therapies target innate immunity, eminently by interfering with single pro-inflammatory cytokine pathways. This approach has shown excellent efficacy in a good proportion of patients(More)
Murine monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) M38 and L31 define two epitopes of a surface protein of activated lymphocytes and monocytes. It has been shown that M38 also defines a crossreactive epitope of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) gp120 (Beretta et al., 1987. Eur. J. Immunol. 17: 1793). The mAb inhibits syncytia formation driven by HIV-1-infected(More)
Several advantages may derive from the use of dietary supplements containing multiple natural antioxidants and/or anti-inflammatory agents. At present, however, there is scarce information on the properties and potential of combined supplements. To fill the gap, the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities exerted by a combination of seven natural(More)
Human parathyroid hormone-related protein (hPTHrP), identified in patients with paraneoplastic hypercalcemia and expressed by different cell types during development and adult life, plays important roles in many human neoplasms. Immunohistochemical and RT-PCR analyses of hPTHrP and human parathyroid hormone receptor type 1 (PTHR-1) in primary(More)
