Reticulocyte-derived exosomes (rex) are 30-100 nm membrane vesicles of endocytic origin released during the maturation of reticulocytes to erythrocytes upon fusion of multivesicular bodies with the plasma membrane. Combination of CpG-ODN with rex obtained from BALB/c mice infected with the reticulocyte-prone non-lethal P. yoelii 17X malaria strain (rexPy), had been shown to induce survival and long lasting protection. Here, we show that splenectomized mice are not protected upon rexPy+CpG inmunizations and that protection is restored upon passive transfer of splenocytes obtained from animals immunized with rexPy+CpG...

Los kiwis, tanto la variedad verde (Actinidia deliciosa) como la de color amarillo (Sungold®) (A. chinensis), destacan entre las frutas de consumo habitual por su composición nutricional. Son excepcionalmente ricos en vitamina C, ya que los kiwis verdes duplican la cantidad que tienen fresas o naranjas, y el kiwi de color amarillo incluso la triplica. Además, los kiwis tienen un elevado contenido en vitaminas E, K, folatos, carotenoides, potasio, fibra y otros fitoquímicos, que proporcionan no solo beneficios nutricionales, sino también sanitarios...

Objetivos: oligoelementos como zinc (Zn), hierro (Fe) y cobre (Cu) tienen una influencia significativa en el mantenimiento de la función inmune y del metabolismo normales; modulan la función immune e influyen en la susceptibilidad del organismo ante infecciones. Pero la relación entre trazas de estos elementos y la bronconeumonía resultó incierta. Métodos: en este estudio fueron incluidos 28 niños con bronconeumonía y 46 niños sanos agrupados por edad. Se determinaron los niveles de Zn, Cu, Fe, calcio (Ca) y/o magnesio (Mg) en el suero de los niños con bronconeumonía y sin ella mediante espectrofotometría de absorción atómica...

Invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) remains as an important cause of morbidity in the world and in our country, while in Chile the incidence has decreased after the incorporation of the 10 valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, in the routine infant inmunization schedule (EPI). One of the expected effects of the program after vaccination with 10-valent pneumococcal vaccine is the likely replacement serotype phenomenon that means the presence of ENI caused by serotypes not included in the vaccine. In this context, we present the case of a child with pneumococcal meningitis caused by serotype 19 A of fatal course...

A case is presented of coinfection with Mycobacterium malmoense and Mycobacterium tuberculosis in a Cuban patient with AIDS which produced respiratory and liver disease respectively. Cultures done from sputum samples showed the presence of a non-pigmented, slow growing mycobacterial strain belonging to Runyon group III and identified as Mycobacterium malmoense. From cultures of liver tissue removed laparoscopically, a strain was isolated and subsequently identified as Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Anatomapathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of tuberculosis, the patient received specific treatment and had a favorable clinical course...

INTRODUCTION: Pneumococcal pneumonia (PP) has a high burden of morbimortality in children. Use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs) is an effective preventive measure. After PCV 7-valent (PCV7) withdrawal, PCV 10-valent (PCV10) and PCV 13-valent (PCV13) are the alternatives in Peru. This study aimed to evaluate cost effectiveness of these vaccines in preventing PP in Peruvian children <5 years-old. METHODOLOGY: A cost-effectiveness analysis was developed in three phases: a systematic evidence search for calculating effectiveness; a cost analysis for vaccine strategies and outcome management; and an economic model based on decision tree analysis, including deterministic and probabilistic sensitivity analysis using acceptability curves, tornado diagram, and Monte Carlo simulation...

INTRODUCTION: Significant malnutrition exists in a high percentage of patients with head and neck cancer. Malnutrition is associated with defects in immune function that may impair the host response to malignancy. Malnutrition and immunosupression make patients highly susceptible to postoperative infections and complications. OBJECTIVES: Some studies of patients receiving immuno-nutrition in the perioperative period in head and neck cancer have shown beneficial effects on clinical outcome and inmune status...

BACKGROUND: immune thrombocytopenic purpura is characterized by bleeding disorders associated with decreased platelet count secondary to antiplatelet autoantibodies. The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of rituximab in the management of refractory immune thrombocytopenic purpura. CLINICAL CASES: four women with immune thrombocytopenic purpura unresponsiveness to standard therapy were evaluated in relation to clinical response and total platelets counts at different time intervals after rituximab administration...

Perinatal hemolytic disease occurs secondary to a hemolytic phenomenon of immune origin resulting in fetal or neonatal anemia. A 38-year-old pregnant woman was referred to the Department of high risk Obstetrics, Hospital Universitario La Paz Madrid because of presenting a dichorionic diamniotic twin pregnancy spontaneously, pre-pregnancy diabetes poorly controlled and severe alloinmunization anti-D. Her first pregnancy ended in a normal delivery at term; in the period of 4 years, she has three newborn with 36, 34 and 40 weeks respectively, who die with a week of life...

Tacrolimus is an important immunosuppressive agent used to prevent allograft rejection after transplantation. Tacrolimus has a narrow therapeutic index; therefore, it is essential that the physicochemical properties of generic formulations be identical to the brand-name formulation, Prograf. In this study, the physicochemical properties of generic tacrolimus formulations were compared with Prograf. The drug dissolution profiles of generic formulations of tacrolimus were different from that of Prograf. Tacrobell and T-Inmun exhibited faster dissolution than Prograf, and Tenacrine, Framebin, and Talgraf showed slower and incomplete drug dissolution, releasing 24% to 51% of tacrolimus within 2 hours...

Dendritic cells in the epidermis have an important role in the skin inmunity since they have an immunogenic capacity. The dendritic cell prototype is Langerhans cell (LC), however, nowadays it is known that there are other dendritic cells in the skin as dermic dendritic cells (DDCs). In this review we examined the functions and characteristics of these cells and their role in the atopic dermatitis.

AIM: To observe the specific cytotoxic T lymphocyte and humoral immune response induced by MUC1 DNA inmunization in mice. METHODS: Female BALB/c mice were immunized intramuscularly with 100 microg pcDNA3.1-MUC1 3 times at intervals of 3 weeks. Three weeks after the last immunization, tumor challenge experiments were performed by inoculation of MUC1 positive breast cancer cell line EMT6. Both humoral immune response and CTL-specific cytotoxicity were detected by immunohistochemical staining and (51)Cr release assay, respectively...

Great advances has been achieved in the last 10 years in the study of acute and chronic viral hepatitis. The enigma of non-A non-B viral hepatitis was disclosed when C virus was identified and later when E virus was isolated. New viruses has been searched to explain non-A to non-E viral hepatitis, being reported recently G virus. Epidemiology and clinical aspects has been reviewed identifying unusual clinical forms: choletasic and relapsing hepatitis in HAV infection; escape mutants B virus hepatitis in HVB infection; and the silent evolution to chronicity in more than 70% of cases in HVC infection...

INTRODUCTION: Huanta is an interandean valley at 2,400 meters above sea level in the peruvian highlands. It is hyperendemic for HBV, and deaths related to HBV such a fulminant hepatitis, cirrhosis and hepatic carcinoma make up 8% of the total mortality. A pilot program of inmunization against HBV integrated with the Expanded Immunization Program (EPI) was established in 1994, so as to limit the incidence if HBV-HDV, and as a strategy to improve EPI coverages.MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 1,412 children under 1 year old and 5,175 children from 1 to 4 years old were scheduled for vaccination...
