Fungal diseases represent an important paradigm in immunology since they can result from either the lack of recognition or over-activation of the inflammatory response. Current understanding of the pathophysiology underlying fungal infections and diseases highlights the multiple cell populations and cell-signaling pathways involved in these conditions. A(More)
Thymosin α1 (Tα1), an epithelial cell (EC)-derived cytokine, has the strong ability to modulate signals delivered through innate immune receptors on dendritic cells (DCs), thus instructing the initiation of appropriate immune responses to T cells. In its ability to activate indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1-dependent tolerogenic programs in DCs, Tα1 pivotally(More)
The event rates for the direct detection of dark matter for various types of WIMPs are presented. In addition to the neutralino of SUSY models, we considered other candidates (exotic scalars as well as particles in Kaluza-Klein and technicolour theories) with masses in the TeV region. Then one finds reasonable branching ratios to excited states. Thus the(More)
The effectiveness of therapeutic treatment based on regenerative medicine for degenerative diseases (i.e., neurodegenerative or cardiac diseases) requires tools allowing the visualization and analysis of the three-dimensional (3D) distribution of target drugs within the tissue. Here, we present a new computational procedure able to overcome the limitations(More)
