Lactoferrin reduces colitis in rats via modulation of the immune system and correction of cytokine imbalance.
Natural immunomodulator lactoferrin is known to exert an anti-inflammatory effect. However, there have been no studies that examine the mode of action of lactoferrin in reducing intestinal damage. WeExpand

Analysis of Th1 and Th2 cytokine production by peripheral blood mononuclear cells as a parameter of immunological dysfunction in advanced cancer patients
Purpose: The presence of immunological dysfunction has not been well demonstrated in cancer patients. Recent studies have revealed that the immune response can be classified into types 1 and 2, andExpand

Characterization of lymphangiogenesis in various stages of idiopathic diffuse alveolar damage.
In pulmonary fibrosis, an abnormal healing process, is believed to be involved in the damage to lung tissue. This process has not been correlated with lymphangiogenesis, which has garnered currentExpand

Electrochemical telomerase assay with ferrocenylnaphthalene diimide as a tetraplex DNA-specific binder.
Spectroscopic studies revealed that ferrocenylnaphthalene diimide (1) can bind to tetraplex DNA at high potassium ion concentration. The tetraplex DNA was stabilized by the binding of 1, and thisExpand
