Leaky Gut As a Danger Signal for Autoimmune Diseases
(Frontiers Media Sa, 2017-05-23)
Emerging Developments in Microbiome and Microglia Research: Implications for Neurodevelopmental Disorders
From immunology to neuroscience, interactions between the microbiome and host are increasingly appreciated as potent drivers of health and disease. Epidemiological studies previously identified compelling correlations ...
Perineural Injection for Treatment of Root-Signature Signs Associated with Lateralized Disk Material in Five Dogs (2009-2013).
Intervertebral disk disease (IVDD) is common in dogs; cervical IVDD accounts for 13-25% of all cases. Ventral slot decompression provides access to ventral and centrally extruded or protruded disk material. However, ...
Computed Tomographic Features in a Case of Bilateral Neoplastic Cryptorchidism with Suspected Torsion in a Dog.
An 11-year-old male German Shepherd dog presented for inappetence and weight loss. Physical examination and initial bloodwork revealed palpable abdominal masses, mild non-regenerative anemia, and thrombocytopenia. Survey ...
Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG modulates innate signaling pathway and cytokine responses to rotavirus vaccine in intestinal mononuclear cells of gnotobiotic pigs transplanted with human gut microbiota.
BACKGROUND: A better understanding of mechanisms underlying dose-effects of probiotics in their applications as treatments of intestinal infectious or inflammatory diseases and as vaccine adjuvant is needed. In this study, ...
Recombination Activating Gene-2 Regulates CpG-Mediated Interferon-α Production in Mouse Bone Marrow-Derived Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cells
Using mice that lack recombination activating gene-2 (Rag2), we have found that bone marrow-derived plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) as main producers of interferon-α (IFNα) require Rag2 for normal development. This is ...
Demographics, perceptions, and socioeconomic factors affecting influenza vaccination among adults in the United States
Objective. The study objective is to analyze influenza vaccination status by demographic factors, perceived vaccine efficacy, social influence, herd immunity, vaccine cost, health insurance status, and barriers to influenza ...
Survey of owner motivations and veterinary input of owners feeding diets containing raw animal products
Background The practice of feeding of diets containing raw animal products (RAP) to pets (dogs and cats) is discouraged by veterinary organizations and governmental public health organizations. Nevertheless, the practice ...
Multi-scale immunoepidemiological modeling of within-host and between-host HIV dynamics: systematic review of mathematical models
Objective The objective of this study is to conduct a systematic review of multi-scale HIV immunoepidemiological models to improve our understanding of the synergistic impact between the HIV viral-immune dynamics at the ...
Expanding Host Range and Cross-Species Infection of Hepatitis E Virus
Hepatitis E is an important public health disease . Although the mortality rate is less than 1% in the general population, it can reach up to 25% in infected pregnant women. According to the World Health Organization, ...
