Th17 cells are critical for the clearance of extracellular bacteria and fungi, but also contribute to the pathology of autoimmune diseases and allergic inflammation. After exposure to an appropriate cytokine environment, Th17 cells can acquire a Th1-like phenotype, but less...

In the past several years, extensive studies on the mechanisms underlying IL-4 and IL-13 signaling have enabled us to gain insight into how these cytokines regulate immune responses. Because both IL-4 and IL-13 use the IL-4Ralpha as a receptor component...

Central nervous system (CNS) autoimmunity is regulated by the balance of pro-inflammatory cytokines and IL-10. Here we identify the transcriptional regulator Blimp1 as crucial to induce IL-10 in inflammatory T helper cells. Pre-committed Th17 cells respond to IL-27 and IL-12...

In multiple sclerosis (MS) and its corresponding animal models, over-activity of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) has been reported and pharmacological RAS blockade exerts beneficial effects. The RAS generates a number of bioactive angiotensins, thereby primarily regulating the body's sodium homeostasis...

Primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) are neoplastic disorders of skin-homing T cells. Affected skin areas show morphologic similarities with alterations in other T-cell-mediated dermatoses. Furthermore, as in atopic dermatitis but in contrast with psoriasis, patients with CTCL are frequently afflicted...

Expression of the macrophage mannose receptor is inhibited by interferon gamma (IFN-gamma), a T helper type 1 (Th-1)-derived lymphokine. Interleukin 4 (IL-4), a Th-2 lymphocyte product, upregulates major histocompatibility class II antigen expression but inhibits inflammatory cytokine production by macrophages....

Cell cycle (Georgetown, Tex.), 9(24), 4824-4835 (2010-12-15)
Although macrophages were originally recognized as major immune effector cells, it is now appreciated that they also play many important roles in the maintenance of tissue homeostasis, and are involved in a variety of pathological conditions including cancer. Several studies...
Toll-like receptors and cytokines as surrogate biomarkers for evaluating vaginal immune response following microbicide administration

Contact hypersensitivity (CHS) has been widely used to study cutaneous immune responses, as a prototype of delayed-type hypersensitivity. Although natural killer T (NKT) cells have been assumed to have an important role in CHS, their role is controversial. Here, we...

Influenza viruses are major respiratory pathogens and the development of improved vaccines to prevent these infections is of high priority. Here, we evaluated split inactivated A(H3N2) vaccines (A/Uruguay/716/2007) combined or not with adjuvants (AS03, AS25 and Protollin) and administered by...

Eosinophilia is a feature of the host immune response that distinguishes parasitic worms from other pathogens, yet a discrete function for eosinophils in worm infection has been elusive. The aim of this study was to clarify the mechanism(s) underlying the...

European journal of immunology, 44(8), 2295-2305 (2014-05-09)
Lymphocyte adhesion and subsequent trafficking across endothelial barriers are essential steps in various immune-mediated disorders of the CNS, including MS. The molecular mechanisms underlying these processes, however, are still unknown. Phospholipase D1 (PLD1), an enzyme that generates phosphatidic acid through...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterized by a progressive decline in lung function, caused by exposure to exogenous particles, mainly cigarette smoke (CS). COPD is initiated and perpetuated by an abnormal CS-induced inflammatory response of the lungs, involving both...

Antigen-presenting cell (APC) plasticity is critical for controlling inflammation in metabolic diseases and infections. The roles that pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) play in regulating APC phenotypes are just now being defined. We evaluated the expression of PRRs on APCs in...

In this study, we addressed the immunotherapeutic potential of human placental extract (HPE) in a murine allergic rhinitis (AR) model and explored its immunological mechanisms. In vivo study using an animal model. HPE was administered to BALB/c mice before sensitization...

NO is a labile radical involved in several immunological, antimicrobial and inflammatory processes. In macrophages, NO formation is catalyzed by the cytokine-inducible enzyme inducible NO synthase (iNOS). The importance of IFN regulatory factor (IRF)-1 and of the signal transducers and...

The mechanism of differentiation of naïve T cells to a variety of effector lineages, but particularly to T helper type 1 (Th1) and Th2 cells, has been the subject of intense scrutiny over the past two decades. Studies have revealed...

Plasticity and functional polarization are hallmarks of the mononuclear phagocyte system. Here we review emerging key properties of different forms of macrophage activation and polarization (M1, M2a, M2b, M2c), which represent extremes of a continuum. In particular, recent evidence suggests...

Immunotherapy is becoming an increasingly attractive therapeutic alternative for conventional cancer therapy. In recent years Foxp3(+) regulatory T-cells (T(R)) were identified as the major obstacle to effective cancer immunotherapy. The abundance of these cells in peripheral blood is increased in...
