Over the last decade, significant interest in the contribution of three "epithelial-derived cytokines," such as thymic stromal lymphopoietin, interleukin 25, and interleukin 33 (IL-33), has developed. These cytokines have been strongly linked to the early events that occur during allergen exposures and how they contribute to the subsequent type 2 immune response. Of these three cytokines, IL-33 has proven particularly interesting because of the strong associations found between both it and its receptor, ST2, in several genome-wide association studies of allergic diseases...

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the most frequent complication of diabetes and one of leading causes of blindness worldwide. Early phases of DR are characterized by retinal pericyte loss mainly related to concurrent inflammatory process. Recently, an important link between P2X7 receptor (P2X7R) and inflammation has been demonstrated indicating this receptor as potential pharmacological target in DR. Here we first carried out an in silico molecular modeling study in order to characterize the allosteric pocket in P2X7R, and identify a suitable P2X7R antagonist through molecular docking...

IL-25 and IL-4 signaling in the setting of infection or allergic responses can drive Type 2 inflammation. IL-25 requires the IL-17 receptor B (IL-17Rb) to mediate signaling through nuclear factor kappa B transcriptional activation. Despite the known coexistence of these two cytokines in the Type 2 inflammatory environment, collaborative signaling between the IL-4 and IL-25 axes is poorly explored. Here we demonstrate IL-4 induction of both IL-25 and IL-17Rb protein in human lung tissue culture, primary alveolar macrophages, and the THP-1 monocytic cell line...

Extensive studies have been performed on acute mountain sickness (AMS), but biomarkers predicting AMS are lacking. Presently, the mainstay methods to identify AMS biomarkers include proteomic and genetic methods at high altitudes or in hypoxic simulated chambers. In the present study, we compared plasma cytokine profiles between AMS-susceptible individuals and AMS-resistant individuals at low altitude by cytokine array analysis. In total, 75 differentially expressed cytokines were identified between AMS-susceptible individuals and AMS-resistant individuals, most involved in inflammation...

Aberrantly activated CD4(+) T memory cells play a central role in the development of type-1-diabetes. Interleukin-7 promotes generation of autoimmune memory T cells and increased Interleukin-7 availability is associated with type-1-diabetes susceptibility. T-cell mediated immune pathology at onset of type-1-diabetes is well defined, but characteristics of long-term symptomatic disease stages remain largely elusive. In the present study memory CD4(+) T-cell activation and cytokine expression as well as sensitivity to Interleukin-7 in vitro were compared between patients with type-1-diabetes at clinical onset (n=25), long-term symptomatic disease (median duration 4...

It is recognized that T helper 2 (Th2) polarization plays a critical role in a large number of immune disorders. Yet, the remedies for reconciling the established Th2 polarization are still limited currently. Published data indicate that micro RNA-17-92 cluster is associated with the skewed immune response; 25 vitamin D3 (VD3) can regulate multiple bioactivities in the body. This study tests a hypothesis that VD3 facilitates the effect of specific immunotherapy (SIT) on Th2 response. We observed that treatment with either SIT or VD3 alleviated AR symptoms as well as reduced serum levels of specific IgE and T helper (Th) 2 cytokines, suppressed miR-19a (one of the members of the miR-17-92 cluster) and increased IL-10 in peripheral B cells, which was further improved in those AR patients treated with both SIT and VD3...

Background: Cardiac dysfunction is present in >40% of sepsis patients and is associated with mortality rates of up to 70%. Recent evidence suggests that glycolytic metabolism plays a critical role in host defense and inflammation. Activation of Toll-like receptors on immune cells can enhance glycolytic metabolism. This study investigated whether modulation of glycolysis by inhibition of hexokinase will be beneficial to septic cardiomyopathy. Methods: Male C57B6/J mice were treated with a hexokinase inhibitor (2-deoxy-D-glucose, 2-DG, 0...
