Selective inhibition of T cells has been implied to prevent and/or treat autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Some food compounds that have such immune-modulating functions may serve as nutritional approach to this purpose. In this study, we chose naringenin, a citrus fruits-derived compound with antiinflammatory property, to test this possibility. In this in vitro study, we stimulated mouse T cells with anti-CD3/CD28 (polyclonal TCR activation) or autoantigen MOG35-55 in the presence of naringenin. We found that naringenin dose-dependently suppressed anti-CD3/CD28 and MOG35-55 -induced T cell proliferation, production of T cell cytokines IFN-γ, IL-17, IL-6 and TNF-α...

In the present study, small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) is applied to investigate the interaction between caseinophosphopeptides (CPP), the major digested product of milk protein, and chitosan (CS) under simulated gastrointestinal (GI) pH conditions. The change in pH value from the gastric to small intestinal environment induces complexation between CPP and CS, which is mainly driven by electrostatic interactions. The fractal dimension (Df) value of the domains inside the CPP-CS complexes is greater than 3, indicating the formation of dense particles/aggregates at the nanoscale...

Therapeutic regimens for the treatment and long-term management of AD traditionally had a two-fold objective of decreasing skin inflammation and repairing the defective skin barrier. Essential treatments for AD in children should include topical moisturizers for skin hydration and prevention of flares, topical anti-inflammatory medications (e.g. corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, PDE4 inhibitor), allergen/irritant avoidance, and treatment of skin infections. Treatment regimens should be severity-based, and implemented in a stepwise approach tailored to the individual patient...

Asthma is a very frequent chronic airway disease that includes many different clinical phenotypes and inflammatory patterns. In particular, eosinophilic bronchial inflammation is often associated with allergic as well as nonallergic asthma. The most important cytokine involved in the induction, maintenance, and amplification of airway eosinophilia in asthma is interleukin-5 (IL-5), released by both T helper 2 (Th2) lymphocytes and group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2). Hence, IL-5 and its receptor are suitable targets for selective biologic drugs which can play a key role in add-on treatment of severe eosinophilic asthma refractory to corticosteroids...
