The Actin Regulators Involved in the Function and Related Diseases of Lymphocytes
The structure and fundamental functions of a variety of well-known and newly discovered actin regulators are introduced and the role of actin regulator in T cell, B cell and NK cell is highlighted, and a landscape of various diseases associated with them is provided.


Development of models for classification of action between heat-clearing herbs and blood-activating stasis-resolving herbs based on theory of traditional Chinese medicine
The performance on validation set and external validation set of deep learning methods (DBN, CNN) were better than machine learning models (kNN, SVM) in sensitivity, specificity, precision, accuracy when predicting the actions of heat-clearing and blood-activating stasis-resolving based on TCM-HP theory.
Decreased Lymphocyte-to-Monocyte Ratio Predicts Poor Prognosis of Acute Ischemic Stroke Treated with Thrombolysis
A higher LMR value is an independent predictor of poor prognosis of AIS treated with thrombolytic therapy, and a moderate sensitivity and specificity of LMR for predicting prognosis is suggested.
Atrial fibrillation is associated with hematopoietic tissue activation and arterial inflammation
Using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography imaging, the relationships between atrial fibrillation, splenic metabolic activity and vascular inflammation were examined and aortic inflammation and splenic activity were highly correlated.
Macrophages retain hematopoietic stem cells in the spleen via VCAM-1
Dutta et al. show that targeting VACM-1 expression in splenic macrophages impairs extramedullary hematopoiesis, thus reducing inflammation in mouse ischemic heart and atherosclerotic plaques.
Shen-Qi-Jie-Yu-Fang has antidepressant effects in a rodent model of postpartum depression by regulating the immune organs and subsets of T lymphocytes
SJ Fang had an antidepressant effect on the immune system in rats with PPD and it is suggested that T-cell mediate immune responses which may play a role in the etiopathology of postpartum depression.
Monocyte subset accumulation in the human heart following acute myocardial infarction and the role of the spleen as monocyte reservoir.
Overall, this study showed a unique spatiotemporal pattern of monocyte accumulation in the human myocardium following AMI that coincides with a marked depletion of monocytes from the spleen, suggesting that the human spleen contains an important reservoir function for monocytes.

Spleen R2 and R2* in iron‐overloaded patients with sickle cell disease and thalassemia major
To evaluate the magnetic properties of the spleen in chronically transfused, iron‐overloaded patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) and thalassemia major (TM) and to compare splenic iron burdens to
