Airway epithelial gene expression in asthma versus h...

Airway epithelial brushings were obtained for microarray analysis by research bronchoscopy in 62 subjects with mild-to-moderate asthma not on inhaled steroids and 43 healthy controls. Asthma subjects were stratified into 2 subgroups, Th2 high and Th2 low asthma, based on their expression of a three-gene signature of Type 2 inflammation: POSTN, SERPINB2, and CLCA1.

Altered gene expression pattern in peripheral blood ...

Despite a substantial progress in diagnosis and therapy, acute myocardial infarction (MI) is a major cause of mortality in the general population. A novel insight into the pathophysiology of myocardial infarction obtained by studying gene expression should help to discover novel biomarkers of MI and to suggest novel strategies of therapy. The aim of our study was to establish gene expression patterns in leukocytes from acute myocardial infarction patients.ST-segment elevation myocardial infar...

Asthmatics with exacerbation during acute respirator...

Acute respiratory illness (ARI) is the leading cause of asthma exacerbations yet the mechanisms underlying this association remain unclear. To address the deficiencies in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms driving ARI-induced asthma exacerbations, we undertook a transcriptional profiling study of the nasal mucosa over the course of ARI amongst individuals with a history of asthma, allergic rhinitis and no underlying respiratory disease. We found that ARI is characterized by dynamic...

B cell signature during inactive systemic lupus

Systemic lupus erythematosous (SLE) is an autoimmune disease with an important clinical and biological heterogeneity. B lymphocytes appear central to the development of SLE which is characterized by the production of a large variety of autoantibodies and hypergammaglobulinemia. In mice, immature B cells from spontaneous lupus prone animals are able to produce autoantibodies when transferred into immunodeficient mice, strongly suggesting the existence of intrinsic B cell defects during lupus. ...

Blockade of interferon-γ normalizes IFN regulated ge...

Normal donor blood was incubated with or without IFN-g stimulation to establish an IFN-g gene signature. Systemic lupus erythematosus subjects were treated with placebo or AMG 811, a therapeutic anti-IFN--g antibody, and changes in the IFN--g signature in whole blood of these subjects was measured.

Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase Regulates TLR9 but not TLR7...

Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) can be activated by the endosomal TLRs, and contribute to the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) by producing type I IFNs. Thus, blocking TLR-mediated pDC activation may represent a useful approach for the treatment of SLE. In an attempt to identify a therapeutic target for blocking TLR signaling in pDCs, we investigated the contribution of Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk) to the activation of pDCs by TLR7 and TLR9 stimulation by using a selec...

Characteristic DNA methylation profiles in periphera...

Epigenetic changes including DNA methylation caused by environmental exposures may contribute to the heterogeneous inflammatory response in asthma. Here we investigate alterations in DNA methylation of purified blood monocytes that are associated with inflammatory phenotypes of asthma.
