İstanbul, Turkey. In Minerva Pediatr, 31 Dec 2014
AIM: Primarly, the aim of this paper was to compare the effects of IL-1, IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-α in cord blood, and secondarily, to evaluate the effect of placental histology on early morbidity between appropriate for gestational age (AGA) preterm infants with preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) and chorioamnionitis and without the history of PPROM and chorioamnionitis.

Among them, soluble ST2 (sST2) a novel biomarker integrating inflammation, fibrosis, and cardiac stress has been included in the 2013 ACCF/AHA guideline for additive risk stratification of patients with acute and chronic HF. sST2 is an interleukin-1 (IL-1) receptor family member, is secreted into the circulation and functions as a "decoy" receptor for IL-33, inhibiting IL-33/ST2 signaling.
[Serumimmunological study of moxibustion on helicobacter pylori gastritis in rats].
In Zhongguo Zhen Jiu, Aug 2014
HE staining microscopic examination was used to observe inflammation severity in gastric mucosa, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was adapted to measure content of heat shock protein (HSP) 72, TNF-alpha and IL-1beta, and real-time quantitative PCR was used to measure the expression of TLR2 mRNA, TLR4 mRNA, CD14 mRNA and MyD88 mRNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, and western blot method was used to measure content of NFkappaB and IkappaBalpha in peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
