Adaptive response in mammalian cells exposed to non-ionizing radiofrequency fields: A review and gaps in knowledge.
San Antonio, United States. In Mutat Res, Mar 2014
In in vivo studies, exposure of rodents to radiofrequency fields and then to lethal/sub-lethal doses of γ-radiation showed survival advantage, significantly decreased damage in hematopoietic tissues, decreased genetic damage in blood leukocytes and bone marrow cells, increased numbers of colony forming units in bone marrow, increased levels of colony stimulating factor and interleukin-3 in the serum and increased expression of genes related to cell cycle.
Eosinophil apoptosis as a therapeutic target in allergic asthma.
Tampere, Finland. In Basic Clin Pharmacol Toxicol, Jan 2014
In the absence of any inflammatory survival-prolonging factors, eosinophils die by apoptosis in few days but in inflamed airways, eosinophil survival is thought to be prolonged due to the surrounding pro-inflammatory factors such as IL-5, IL-3 and GM-CSF.
Signalling by the βc family of cytokines.
Adelaide, Australia. In Cytokine Growth Factor Rev, Jun 2013
The GM-CSF, IL-3 and IL-5 family of cytokines, also known as the βc family due to their receptors sharing the signalling subunit βc, regulates multiple biological processes such as native and adaptive immunity, inflammation, normal and malignant hemopoieis, and autoimmunity.
