Solid Phase-Based Cross-Matching in Order to Avoid Kidney Allografting against Donor-Specific Anti-HlA Antibodies: Long Term Experience with a Procedure Allowing Highly Reliable Diagnoses

Abstract: Transplant recipients with sensitizing events such as previous transplants, blood transfusions or pregnancies often develop antibodies which are directed against Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA)-molecules of the donor tissue.

Sperm Sex Ratio (X: Y Ratio) and its Variations

Abstract: Sex ratio can be studied at various levels viz., at the time of spermatogenesis i.e. ratio of X and Y bearing sperm (pre-zygotic sex ratio) or at the time of fertilization/early preimplantation embryo (close to primary sex ratio or post-zygotic sex ratio) or at the time of birth (secondary sex ratio).

Evaluation of Ige Sensitization Profiles in a Pediatric Population with Wheat Allergy

Abstract: IgE-mediated reactions to wheat can occur after ingestion, inhalation, contact or exercise. Among wheat allergens, Tri a14 and Tri a19 not only cause food allergy, but also baker’s asthma (Tri a4) and exercise-induced anaphylaxis (Tri a19). Despite the prevalence of adverse reactions, few studies have been conducted in children.

Synergistic Effects of Humic Acid and Glucan in Hepatoprotection against Experimental Liver Injury

Abstract:Liver regulates numerous important functions in the organism, serving as the main organ for detoxification of various substances. The pathogenesis of liver damage involves many cell types in liver via cell death and regeneration processes. The liver damage often progresses from acute to chronic hepatitis, fibrosis, cirrhosis and carcinoma.

The Impact of Fractional Flow Reserve on Revascularization

Abstract: Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) is recommended by society guidelines for assessment of the hemodynamic significance of intermediate coronary lesions when non-invasive evidence of myocardial ischemia is unavailable. However, little information is known about how FFR impacts revascularization decisions.

Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis and Myelodysplastic Syndrome: A Casual Association or a Pathogenetic Correlation?

Abstract: Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disease in adults, characterized by a proliferation of abnormal Bone Marrow (BM) derived Langerhans Cells (LCs) in single or multiple organs. The Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) represents a group of clonal disorders, characterized by dysplasia in two or more lineages.

Alterations of Dopaminergic Synapse and Mitochondrial Structure by Parkinson's Disease Toxins

Abstract: Immunostaining with anti-tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) revealed that a small subset (~2.5%) of primary neurons (from rat embryonic E13-14 midbrains) is dopaminergic (DA). In this study, we tested whether DA neurons in culture are selectively degenerated by well-known PD toxins such as rotenone (5-100nM) and MPP+ (10μM). Both toxins significantly decreased the number of DA neurons and neurite length after 24-hour incubation.
