In an article for Scientific American Mind, German neuropsychology professor Erich Kasten outlines evidence that link depression and other psychiatric conditions with pro-inflammatory cytokines
For MDD and schizophrenia, two other cytokines
were significantly elevated in the meta-analysis: SIL-2R, a cytokine
receptor associated with T-cell activation; and IL-1 beta, a cytokine
produced by activated macrophages (P less than .
are necessary for herding cells to the body's battlegrounds to fight infection, disease and trauma, sustained high levels of cytokines
are associated with poorer health and such disorders as type-2 diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and even Alzheimer's disease and clinical depression.
In addition, inflammatory cytokines
began to accumulate in the lungs, leading to a cytokine
storm that causes significant damage to the tissue.
If too many cytokines
are released, SOCS proteins suppress the activity of the cytokines
to prevent unwanted inflammation and tissue damage.
Ricerca Biosciences, an integrated preclinical pharmaceutical contract research organization (CRO), today announced the introduction of two new state-of-the-art cellular assay services: Early Safety Screening Cytotoxicity and ImmunoSIGNAL Cytokine
Storm Cellular Assay.
Literature reveals controversial results on the levels of serum cytokines
in various forms of leprosy.
The company added its DNL-derived cytokine
-antibody complexes are made up of four cytokines
attached to an intact antibody.
There are more than 200 cytokines
in mammals, which exert a vast range of biologic activities on numerous biologic systems.
Objectives: To determine the levels and possible role of pro-inflammatory cytokines
TNFa, IL-1 and IL-6 in children with clinical protein energy malnutrition (kwashiorkor, marasmic kwashiorkor or marasmus) alone and in combination with malaria in Western Kenya.
An important role which predetermines future development of the placenta is played by a number of immunological factors including cytokines
, growth factors, etc.
are a family of non-antibody immunoregulatory proteins or other biological factors, including lymphokines, interleukins, tumor necrosis factors, and interferons.
1 October 2010 - Sweden-based biomedical company Vitrolife (STO: VITR) announced today the launch a new generation of growth factors and cytokines
for cultivation of stem cells.
are pleiotropic proteins produced by potentially all nuclei of cells in the body.
The authors note that placental development is controlled in part by the balance of cytokines
at the maternal-fetal interface and conclude that evidence of effects of p-NP on placental cytokines
at levels consistent with environmental exposures should raise concerns about maternal exposures during pregnancy.
