1. Hepcidin Induces M1 Macrophage Polarization in Monocytes or THP-1 Derived Macrophages

Enna Liu; Zheng Li; Yan Zhang; Kuisheng Chen

Volume 16, Issue 3 , Summer 2019, , Pages 190-199


  Background: Macrophage polarization plays a critical role in determining the inflammatory states. Hepcidin is a key negative regulator of iron homeostasis and functions. Although hepcidin has been shown to affect ferroportin expression in macrophages, whether it affects macrophage polarization is still ...  Read More

2. Anti-inflammatory Effects of PMX205 in Mouse Macrophage Periodontitis Model

Gege Li; Jiahui Pan; Qiuling Tang; Xinchan Liu; Liuran Wang; Yang Meng; Weixian Yu

Volume 15, Issue 2 , Spring 2018, , Pages 84-96


  Background: C5areceptor antagonistPMX205 is a synthetic hexapeptidecapable of blocking C5a-C5a receptor (C5aR) axis by simulating C5a active C-terminal amino acid residues. This hexapeptide presents good anti-inflammatory effects in a myriad inflammation models. The anti-inflammatory effect of PMX205 ...  Read More

3. Hemozoin Enhances Maturation of Murine Bone Marrow Derived Macrophages and Myeloid Dendritic Cells

Shahid Waseem; Kashif-Ur-Rehman -; Ramesh Kumar; Tariq Mahmood

Volume 13, Issue 1 , Winter 2016, , Pages 1-8

  Background: Falciparum malaria is a severe health burden worldwide. Antigen presenting cells are reported to be affected by erythrocytic stage of the parasite. Malarial hemozoin (HZ), a metabolite of malaria parasite, has adjuvant properties and may play a role in the induction of immune response against ...  Read More

4. IL-10 and IL-12 Production in Response to Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Total Lipid Antigens in Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis

Ali Shams Shahemabadi; Ahmad Zavaran Hosseini; Shapour Shaghasempour; Mohammad Reza Masjedi; Majid Rayani; Majid Shams; Nasrin Esphandyari; Majid Pouramiri

Volume 7, Issue 1 , Winter 2010, , Pages 57-63

  Background: Mycobacterium tuberculosis lipid antigens take part in pathogenicity of the bacterium but the response of monocytes/macrophages to these antigens in tubercu-losis is not well known. Objective: The aim of current investigation was to study the M. tuberculosis lipid antigens in tuberculosis ...  Read More

5. Effect of Ganoderma Lucidum on Cytokine Release by Peritoneal Macrophages

Kazem Ahmadi; Majid Riazipour

Volume 4, Issue 4 , Autumn 2007, , Pages 220-226

  Background: The water-soluble extract of Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) has been used as an immunomodulator to stimulate spleen cells proliferation and cytokine expression. Objective: To investigate the effect of Ganoderma lucidum (G. lucidum) on cytokine production by mice peritoneal macrophages. Methods: ...  Read More
