However, little is known about the location of the bacilli in latently infected individuals. Long-term mycobacterial persistence in the lungs has been reported, but this may not sufficiently(More)
Aging is a progressive process determined by genetic and acquired factors. Among the latter are the chemical reactions referred to as nonenzymatic posttranslational modifications (NEPTMs), such as glycoxidation, which are responsible for protein molecular aging. Carbamylation is a more recently described NEPTM that is caused by the nonenzymatic binding of(More)
Oligodeoxynucleotides containing CpG motifs (CpG-ODN) are powerful immunostimulating agents that are currently entering clinical trials in various human diseases. Concerns exist about potential auto-immune diseases triggered by such treatment. We thus investigated whether tumor rejection induced by CpG-ODN treatment could lead to a harmful auto-immune(More)
