Anti-donor immune responses elicited by allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells and their extracellular vesicles: Are we still learning?
(Frontiers Media, 2017-11-24)
Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) have been used to treat a broad range of disease indications such as acute and chronic inflammatory disorders, autoimmune diseases, and transplant rejection due to their potent immunosuppr ...
Minimum information about T Regulatory Cells: A step toward reproducibility and standardization
(Frontiers Media, 2018-01-15)
Cellular therapies with CD4+ T regulatory cells (Tregs) hold promise of efficacious treatment for the variety of autoimmune and allergic diseases as well as posttransplant complications. Nevertheless, current manufacturing ...
Identifying and addressing the limitations of safety climate surveys.
This paper reports the descriptive analysis of a large sample of safety climate survey data (n = 110,014) collected over 10 years from U.S. Naval aircrew using the Command Safety Assessment Survey (CSAS).
vIL-10-overexpressing human MSCs modulate naïve and activated T lymphocytes following induction of collagenase-induced osteoarthritis
Recent efforts in osteoarthritis (OA) research have highlighted synovial inflammation and involvement of immune cells in disease onset and progression. We sought to establish the in-vivo immune response in collagenase-induced ...
Indistinguishable NDM-producing escherichia coli isolated from recreational waters, sewage, and a clinical specimen in Ireland, 2016 to 2017
(European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, 2017-04-13)
In this study, New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase (NDM)-producing Enterobacteriaceae were identified in Irish recreational waters and sewage. Indistinguishable NDM-producing Escherichia coli by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis ...
Strength in Numbers: an international consensus conference to develop a novel approach to care delivery for young adults with type 1 diabetes, the D1 Now Study
(BioMed Central, 2017-12-04)
Many young adults with type 1 diabetes struggle with the day-to-day management of their condition. They often find it difficult to find the time to attend their clinic appointments and to meet with their diabetes healthcare ...
Investigating the management of diabetes in nursing homes using a mixed methods approach
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2017-03-21)
Aims: As populations age there is an increased demand for nursing home (NH) care and a parallel increase in the prevalence of diabetes. Despite this, there is growing evidence that the management of diabetes in NHs is ...
Minimum information about tolerogenic antigen-presenting cells (MITAP): a first step towards reproducibility and standardisation of cellular therapies
Cellular therapies, with tolerogenic antigen-presenting cells (tolAPC) show great promise for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and for the prevention of destructive immune responses after transplantation The methodologies ...
Application of video-based methods for competitive swimming analysis: a systematic review
This paper explores the application of video-based methods for the analysis of com- petitive swimming performance. A systematic search of the existing literature was conducted using the following keywords: swim*, performance, ...
Regulating immunogenicity and tolerogenicity of bone marrow-derived dendritic cells through modulation of cell surface glycosylation by dexamethasone treatment
(Frontiers Media, 2017-10-30)
Dendritic cellular therapies and dendritic cell vaccines show promise for the treatment of autoimmune diseases, the prolongation of graft survival in transplantation, and in educating the immune system to fight cancers. ...
