Serum Biomarkers of Allergic Contact Dermatitis: A Pilot Study.
Vilnius, Lithuania. In Int Arch Allergy Immunol, Feb 2016
RESULTS: Serum levels of adiponectin, chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 5 (CCL5), C-reactive protein (CRP), chitinase 3-like 1 (CHI3L1), complement factor D (CFD), endoglin, lipocalin-2, osteopontin, retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4), and platelet factor 4 (PF4) were significantly higher, whereas levels of trefoil factor 3 (TFF3) were significantly lower, in ACD patients than in healthy controls.
Restoration of Visual Function by Enhancing Conduction in Regenerated Axons.
Boston, United States. In Cell, Feb 2016
Here, in both juvenile and adult mice, we show that either PTEN and SOCS3 co-deletion, or co-overexpression of osteopontin (OPN)/insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1)/ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF), induces regrowth of retinal axons and formation of functional synapses in the superior colliculus (SC) but not significant recovery of visual function.
Pharmacotherapy of alcoholic liver disease in clinical practice.
Napoli, Italy. In Int J Clin Pract, Jan 2016
While in aggressive forms of alcoholic hepatitis are recommended specific drug treatments, including glucocorticoids or pentoxifylline, for the long-term treatment of ALD, specific treatments aimed at stopping the progression of fibrosis are not yet approved, but there are some future perspective in this field, including probiotics and antibiotics, caspase inhibitors, osteopontin and endocannabinoids.
Role of Irisin on the bone-muscle functional unit.
Bari, Italy. In Bonekey Rep, 2014
Low-dose r-Irisin also increases osteopontin and decreases sclerostin synthesis but did not affect Uncoupling protein 1 expression in white adipose tissue, whose upregulation is known to cause browning of fat, when Irisin is administered at a higher dose.
