Aging is closely associated with osteoarthritis (OA). Although its underlying mechanisms remain unknown, cellular senescence in chondrocytes has become an important therapeutic target for the treatment of OA. Cysteinyl leukotriene receptors (cysLTRs) mediate the pathobiological function of cysteinyl leukotrienes (cysLTs). However, the roles of cysLTRs in the pathogenesis of OA have not been reported before. In the current study, we found that cysLTR1 but not cysLTR2 is expressed in human primary chondrocytes...

Guillain Barré Syndrome (GBS) is a severe disorder of the peripheral nervous system with an inadequately known etiopathology. It is a post infectious immune mediated disorder, characterized by autoantibody production, complement activation as well as T reactivity against gangliosides. However, the precise etiopathogenesis remains poorly understood in a majority of the patients. Th17 cells, a recently identified lineage of Th cells have emerged as a predominant inducer of autoimmunity and inflammation in various immunological disorders...

The association between excessive training sessions (i.e., overtraining/OT) and periods of inadequate recovery is linked to the nonfunctional overreaching (NFOR) state, which is defined as an unexplained decrement or stagnation of performance. The cytokine hypothesis of OT considers that pro-inflammatory cytokines are responsible by the NFOR state-induced performance decrement. Investigations using rodent models of OT verified increased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines in hypothalamus, liver, serum and skeletal muscle samples...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation(AF) is the most common sustained arrhythmia. Its most feared sequelae are stroke and peripheral thromboembolism due to atrial thrombi formation. Mechanisms underlying the relationship between platelet activation and left atrial thrombi have not been clearly elucidated yet. We aimed to investigate whether immune-mediated platelet activation occurred in AF patients in this cross-sectional study. METHODS: Persistent and paroxysmal AF patients who underwent cryoballoon-based AF ablation between March 2015 and July 2016 were included as the patient group...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Vitamin D has immune modulating effects on cytokines. Serum vitamin D levels are associated with the risk of relapse in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC), through unknown mechanisms. We tested the hypothesis that this beneficial role of vitamin D on UC is mediated through anti-inflammatory serum cytokine profiles. METHODS: Serum samples from a prospective cohort of seventy UC patients in clinical remission were collected and baseline histological and endoscopic scores were recorded at enrollment...

Up to 50% of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) or Crohn's disease (CD) experience a loss of response (LOR) to infliximab after an initial response to the drug. Granulocyte/monocyte apheresis (GMA) with the Adacolumn depletes the activated myeloid leukocytes that are known to exacerbate and perpetuate inflammatory bowel diseases, but GMA has hitherto not been applied to patients with LOR to infliximab. We report three cases (2 UC and 1CD) with LOR to maintenance infliximab therapy that received one GMA session/week for 3 consecutive weeks or more...

BACKGROUND: Adiponectin is an adipokine secreted by adipocytes. A low adiponectin level is a significant risk factor of diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Recent studies have shown that adiponectin is negatively associated with hematopoiesis and predicts the development of anemia in the general population. In chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, circulating adiponectin level is paradoxically elevated and the role of adiponectin is complex. Therefore, we evaluated the relationship between adiponectin and anemia in these patients...

Psoriasis (PsO) is a chronic skin disorder resulting from the imbalanced interactionbetween infiltrating immune cells and keratinocytes. These immune cells, including monocytes, are able to mediate the immune responses in inflamed skin lesions. Chemokines are responsible for the recruitment of leukocytes to sites of inflammation. In patients with PsO, the keratinocytes are the main source of monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP-1/CCL2), which is a CC chemokine. After CCL2 binds to the chemokine receptor CCR2, which mainly is expressed on the surface of monocytes, the monocytes differentiate into macrophages and migrate from the blood stream to sites of inflammation...

Previously our lab has created a mouse ovarian xenograft model of copy number variation (CNV)-mediated G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) MAS-driven tumorigenesis, and RNA profiling identified a putative chemokine tumor-induced factor (Tif). Sequence analysis and chemotactic study suggested that Tif was likely to be a hamster homolog of human GROγ (CXCL3) [IJC 125 (2009): 1316-1327]. In the present study, we report the molecular and functional characterization of the Tif gene. Genomic study of CHO-K1 cells indicated that Tif gene consisted of 4 exons, characterized with an antisense B1 element which is embedded in the fourth exon...

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive and fatal disease, characterized by the absence of dystrophin, muscle degeneration and cardiorespiratory failure. Creatine kinase is the classic marker to screen for DMD. However, other markers are needed to follow disease progression and to evaluate the response to therapy over longer periods. In the present study, we aim to identify interleukins in the plasma of the mdx mice model of DMD that could serve as biomarkers to monitor dystrophy progression, at distinct stages of the disease (1, 3 and 8 months of age)...

Currently, the research of chemokines has penetrated into many fields of life science. A new kind of chemokines, chemokine like factor 1 (CKLF1), which is cloned through suppression subtractive hybridisation (SSH) technology is expressed widely in human body, especially in the lung and peripheral blood leukocytes. CKLF1 has a broad spectrum of chemotaxic activity for many cells, such as lymphocytes, macrophages, bone marrow cells, nerve cells and so on. In addition, CKLF1 also stimulates the regeneration of skeletal muscle cells in vivo...
