Alterations in the metabolism of tryptophan in patients with chronic hepatitis C six months after pegylated interferon-α 2a treatment.

Risk of depression and suicide in patients on interferon remains also after the treatment, the pathogenesis of which is still unclear. We aimed to determine the influence of the PEG-IFN-α2a on tryptophan metabolism along the kynurenine pathway during treatment and up to 6 months after the end of treatment.


The assessment of changes to the nontuberculous mycobacterial metabolome in response to anti-TB drugs.

Mycobacterium species can cause a range of nontuberculous infections of healthy and immunocompromised people as well as infect people during and after surgical procedures. The similarity of nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) to the tuberculosis bacilli (TB) could ultimately enable the use of anti-TB drugs for the genus. Hence, three NTM (M. smegmatis, M. phlei and M. avium) were cultured under different lab conditions, causing two mycobacterial phenotypes (active and dormant), and treated with isoniazid (INH...

Control of mycobacteriosis in zebrafish (Danio rerio) mucosally vaccinated with heat-inactivated Mycobacterium bovis.

Mycobacterial infections greatly affect human and animal health worldwide, and vaccines are effective, sustainable and economic interventions for the prevention and control of these infectious diseases. Recent results support the use of zebrafish as a model for studying the pathophysiology of mycobacterial infection and for the development of novel interventions for tuberculosis (TB) control. Recently, we showed that oral immunization with the heat-inactivated M. bovis vaccine (M. bovis IV) protect wild boa...


Atypical manifestations of tuberculous empyema and neutrophil-predominant tuberculous pleural effusions.

Differential expression of interferon-gamma, IL-4 and IL-10 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells during early pregnancy of the bovine.

Maternal systemic immune response is regulated by conceptus-derived signals through peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) via blood circulation during early pregnancy in cattle. In this study, the PBMCs from day 18 in non-pregnant cows and days 14, 18 and 30 in pregnant cows were used to explore the expression of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ), interleukin 4 (IL-4) and IL-10, and the plasma progesterone (P4) concentration was also determined. The results showed that the expression levels of mRNA and the pro...

Antimicrobial and immunomodulatory activity induced by loperamide in mycobacterial infections.

Surgical Management of Pulmonary Mycobacterial Disease.

There is renewed interest in the use of adjuvant surgical resection in the treatment of pulmonary mycobacterial disease. For pulmonary , the emergence of significant drug resistance has led clinicians to reconsider surgery in select cases, where a clear benefit in bacterial conversion and cure has been noted. Less data exist for the use of anatomic resection in the setting of pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacterial disease, although multiple reports have supported the use of surgery in select cases. Resectio...

Outbreak of Tattoo-Associated Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Skin Infections.

On April 29, 2015, the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County (DOH-Miami-Dade) was notified by a local dermatologist of three patients with suspect nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infection after receiving tattoos at a local tattoo studio.

Recombinant Duck Interferon Gamma Inhibits H5N1 Influenza Virus Replication In Vitro and In Vivo.

The highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza virus (AIV) is widespread in waterfowl, causing enormous economic losses and posing a significant threat to public health. An increasing number of reagents have been identified to prevent the spread of influenza; however, there have been no reports on the anti-H5N1 effects of duck interferons, which exhibit antiviral activity against other viruses. Our aim was to investigate the antiviral effects of purified duck interferons. In this study, we successfully cloned a...

Effect of gamma irradiation on inactivation of Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella Typhimurium and Listeria monocytogenes on pistachios.

This study evaluated the efficacy of gamma irradiation to inactivate foodborne pathogens on pistachios (Pistacia vera L.). Pistachios inoculated with Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella Typhimurium and Listeria monocytogenes were subjected to gamma irradiation in the range of 0, 0.5, 1, 3 and 5 kGy, and color change was evaluated after treatment and during storage at room temperature. Pathogen populations decreased with increasing treatment doses. A gamma irradiation dose of 5 kGy decreased the three patho...

Interferon lambda is required for interferon gamma-expressing NK cell responses but does not afford antiviral protection during acute and persistent murine cytomegalovirus infection.

Interferon lambda (IFNλ) is a group of cytokines that belong to the IL-10 family. They exhibit antiviral activities against certain viruses during infection of the liver and mucosal tissues. Here we report that IFNλ restricts in vitro replication of the β-herpesvirus murine cytomegalovirus (mCMV). However, IFNλR1-deficient (Ifnλr1-/-) mice were not preferentially susceptible to mCMV infection in vivo during acute infection after systemic or mucosal challenge, or during virus persistence in the mucosa. ...

Intracranial tuberculous mass lesions treated with thalidomide in an immunocompetent child from a low tuberculosis endemic country: A case report.

Tuberculous meningitis is a highly morbid, often fatal disease.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG prevents epithelial barrier dysfunction induced by interferon-gamma and fecal supernatants from irritable bowel syndrome patients in human intestinal enteroids and colonoids.

Disruption of intestinal barrier homeostasis is an important pathogenic factor in conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) improves IBS symptoms through unclear mechanisms. Previous studies utilizing colorectal adenocarcinoma cell lines showed that LGG metabolites prevented interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) induced barrier damage but the model employed limited these findings. We aimed to interrogate the protective effects of LGG on epithelial barrier function using huma...

Factors associated with non-conversion of the direct smear after the initial phase of anti-tuberculous treatment. A study undertaken in three tuberculosis management centres in South Benin.

The objective of this work was to describe the profile of routinely managed tuberculosis patients whose sputum smear did not become negative after the initial phase of anti-tuberculous treatment and to analyze the factors associated with this. With this aim a cross-sectional, retrospective, descriptive and analytical study was carried out in a population of adults with pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) between 2013 and 2014 in three cities in southern Benin (Cotonou, Porto-Novo and Abomey). The data of the patie...

Estimating the annual risk of tuberculosis infection in Japan from interferon-gamma release assay data.

To assess tuberculosis transmission frequency at a population level, the age-dependent Mantoux test has been used widely to estimate the annual risk of infection (ARI) with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. However, the widespread Bacille Calmette-Guerin (BCG) immunization program implemented in Japan in the 20th century has made natural infections with M. tuberculosis difficult to distinguish from immune responses against this vaccine. Consequently, a recognized alternative method for measuring the frequency of ...

Validation and comparison of ELISA kits to measure interferon gamma responses in QuantiFERON cultural supernatants for diagnosis of tuberculosis.

Much effort has been made to reduce the cost of LTBI diagnosis with equivalent efficacy and efficiency of interferon-γ release assay (IGRA). This study showed that repeatability, intermediate precision, and accuracy of the Bionote-ELISA were comparable to QFT-ELISA. The Bionote-ELISA could provide the alternative method.

Retraction: Novel Approach to Activity Evaluation for Release-Active Forms of Anti-Interferon-Gamma Antibodies Based on Enzyme-Linked Immunoassay.

Strategies for the treatment of HBV/HDV.

An estimated 240 million people worldwide are chronically infected with the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Despite readily available vaccination, HBV infections remain highly prevalent. As established HBV infections constitute a strong risk factor for developing hepatocellular carcinoma their treatment is a major task for the health system. Unfortunately, HBV is not curable with today's medicine. Approximately 15 million HBV patients have developed a hepatitis delta (HDV) infection on top of their HBV infection. ...

Identification of Clinically Relevant Mycobacterial Species After Extended Incubation Times in the BACTEC MGIT System.

Traditionally, for mycobacterial culture both solid and broth media are used and routinely held for 6 weeks minimum to optimize yield. We retrospectively reviewed all positive mycobacterial cultures over a 12-month period to assess growth kinetics of clinically relevant isolates.

Constitutive metanephric mesenchyme-specific expression of interferon-gamma causes renal dysplasia by regulating Sall1 expression.

Transplacental viral and parasitic infections have been shown to initiate an innate response in the mammalian embryo by increasing the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as interferon-gamma (Ifng). However, the developmental consequences of an activated innate immunity and, in particular, the effects of induction of Ifng expression independent of infection have been largely overlooked. Here, we demonstrate in vivo that the conditional overexpression of Ifng in metanephric mesenchymal (MM) progeni...
