Cockroach Allergen Exposure and Risk of Asthma.
Baltimore, United States. In Allergy, Jan 2016
Protease-activated receptor (PAR)-2, Toll-like receptor (TLR), and C-type lectin receptors have been suggested to be important for the penetration of cockroach allergens through epithelial cells to mediate allergen uptake, dendritic cell maturation, antigen presenting cell (APC) function in T cell polarization, and cytokine production.
Engineering activated protein C to maximize therapeutic efficacy.
Dublin, Ireland. In Biochem Soc Trans, Sep 2015
The anticoagulant-activated protein C (APC) acts not solely as a crucial regulator of thrombus formation following vascular injury, but also as a potent signalling enzyme with important functions in the control of both acute and chronic inflammatory disease.
FAP Associated Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma: A Peculiar Subtype of Familial Nonmedullary Thyroid Cancer.

Milano, Italy. In Patholog Res Int, 2014
We give evidence that this extracolonic manifestation of FAP is determined by the same germline mutation of the APC gene responsible for colonic polyps and cancer but also shows some unusual features (F : M ratio = 80 : 1, absence of LOH for APC in the thyroid tumoral tissue, and indolent biological behaviour, despite frequent multicentricity and lymph nodal involvement), suggesting that the APC gene confers only a generic susceptibility to thyroid cancer, but perhaps other factors, namely, modifier genes, sex-related factors, or environmental factors, are also required for its phenotypic expression.
