Role of Mannose Binding Lectin in Response to Candida Antigen Immunotherapy of Warts

Background: Warts is the commonest cutaneous manifestation of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Intralesional Candida antigen immunotherapy is used for wart treatment. Aim: To identify the role of mannose binding lectin (MBL) in susceptibility to HPV infection and to explore the relationship between MBL and response to intralesional Candida antigen immunotherapy of wart. Patients and methods: A case-control study was enrolled with 96 participants; 48 wart cases and 48 healthy controls. MBL serum level assay baseline and after six settings of intralesional candida antigen injection was done by ELISA technique. MBL2 gene exon 1 codon 54 polymorphism was detected by using restriction fragment length polymorphism-polymerase chain reaction (RFLP-PCR). Results: A statistically significant difference in MBL serum level between wart cases and controls was found. An association between MBL2 exon1 codon 54 polymorphism and susceptibility to HPV infection and development of warts was proved. Carriage of genotype AB was more frequent wart cases (95.8%) than in controls (20.8%). No statistical significance association could be found between the therapeutic response to Candida antigen immunotherapy in wart cases and MBL as regards its se...Continue Reading

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.

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.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

Signaling in Adult Neurogenesis

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

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.
