Abstract

Using immunohistochemical methods, we studied cellular infiltrations of burn wounds in children. The relative number of cells with cluster of differentiation 3 (CD3) CD68 molecules, cells with receptors for interleukin-2 (IL-2) and its receptor (IL-2R), IL-3, IL-3R, IL-6, IL-6R, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), TNF-alphaR, and cells with TNF-alpha molecules on their surface was studied. The relationships between these values were determined. The following results were observed: (1) A positive correlation between the relative numbers of CD68 cells and the percentage of cells with receptors for IL-2 (IL-2R) and TNF-alpha (TNF-alphaR); (2) A negative correlation between the relative numbers of CD3 cells and cells with receptors for IL-2 and TNF-alpha; (3) A strong negative correlation between the relative numbers of CD3 and CD68 cells; (4) A positive correlation between the percentage of cells with receptors for TNF-alpha and the size of the burn wound; and (5) A positive correlation between the relative numbers of cells with the TNF-alpha molecule on their surfaces and studied receptors for interleukins, i.e., IL-2R, IL-3R, IL-6R, and TNF-alphaR. These results indicate a key role for TNF-alpha and its receptor within the ...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
