Implications of COVID-19 for inflammatory bowel disease patients with comments from Professor of Gastroenterology Dr. Giovanni Monteleone.
Research suggests that the coronavirus may remain infectious for up to 9 days on surfaces and may be deactivated by common disinfectants.
Chinese researchers at Wuhan Hankou Hospital recently developed a mortality index that could permit the triaging of coronavirus patients based on disease severity.
Limited Efficacy of Immunosuppressive Strategy in Transplant Patients Associated with Immunoproteosome
The limited efficacy of a proteosome inhibitor-based immunosuppressive strategy in highly HLA-sensitized transplant recipients has been associated with the immunoproteosome.
A recent study involving the Boston Birth Cohort associated concentrations of folic acid levels at birth with the development of food allergies during childhood.
A recent study by Chinese researchers evaluating coronavirus symptoms demonstrated pneumonia and severe respiratory complications among other findings.
Epidemiologic Analysis of Wuhan Coronavirus Demonstrates Up To Two-Week-Long Incubation Period and One-Week Doubling Time
By analyzing the first 425 confirmed cases of the Wuhan coronavirus, researchers affiliated with the Chinese Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explored epidemiologic characteristics of the disease.
Regulatory T cells control fibroblast activation in skin to suppress the pathogenesis of tissue fibrosis
The activity and function of regulatory T cells (Tregs) largely depends on the tissue in which they reside. Recent research has identified that Tregs in the skin are primed to control the pathogenesis of tissue fibrosis by expressing a unique transcriptional signature that supports the effective suppression of type 2 immune responses.
Knocking out a form of the liver X receptor, a protein involved in the regulation of gene expression, was found to promote inflammation and the loss of protective proteins in the blood-brain barrier, suggesting that the upregulation of these receptors could be considered as an approach to Multiple Sclerosis treatment.
