Characterization of immune response to neurofilament light in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
Autoimmunity to neuronal proteins occurs in several neurological syndromes, where cellular and humoral responses are directed to surface as well as intracellular antigens. Similar to myelin autoimmunity, pathogenic immune ...
Analysis of colorectal cancers in British Bangladeshi identifies early onset, frequent mucinous histotype and a high prevalence of RBFOX1 deletion
Prevalence of colorectal cancer (CRC) in the British Bangladeshi population (BAN) is low compared to British Caucasians (CAU). Genetic background may influence mutations and disease features.
Interventions to improve exercise behaviour in sedentary people living with and beyond cancer: a systematic review.
To systematically review the effects of interventions to improve exercise behaviour in sedentary people living with and beyond cancer.
Measuring the nature and duration of symptoms of cervical cancer in young women: developing an interview-based approach.
BACKGROUND: Some young women experience delays in diagnosis of cervical cancer, but little research about ways of studying these delays has been published. A major challenge is that gynaecological symptoms are common in ...
New Caledonian crows learn the functional properties of novel tool types.
New Caledonian crows were presented with Bird and Emery's (2009a) Aesop's fable paradigm, which requires stones to be dropped into a water-filled tube to bring floating food within reach. The crows did not spontaneously ...
Respiratory tract dendritic cells in paediatric asthma.
BACKGROUND: Airway dendritic cells (DC) are critical mediators of lung inflammation in asthma, but the characteristics of DC in the airways of healthy children, and children with asthma, are currently unknown. OBJECTIVE: ...
Inactive or moderately active human promoters are enriched for inter-individual epialleles.
BACKGROUND: Inter-individual epigenetic variation, due to genetic, environmental or random influences, is observed in many eukaryotic species. In mammals, however, the molecular nature of epiallelic variation has been ...
'The smoking toolkit study': a national study of smoking and smoking cessation in England.
BACKGROUND: Up-to-date data tracking of national smoking patterns and cessation-related behaviour is required to evaluate and inform tobacco control strategies. The Smoking Toolkit Study (STS) was designed for this role. ...
Maternal gestational diabetes is associated with genome-wide DNA methylation variation in placenta and cord blood of exposed offspring.
Exposure of a developing foetus to maternal gestational diabetes (GDM) has been shown to programme future risk of diabetes and obesity. Epigenetic variation in foetal tissue may have a mechanistic role in metabolic disease ...
Nutritional manipulation for the primary prevention of gestational diabetes mellitus: a meta-analysis of randomised studies.
INTRODUCTION: The rise in gestational diabetes (GDM), defined as first onset or diagnosis of diabetes in pregnancy, is a global problem. GDM is often associated with unhealthy diet and is a major contributor to adverse ...
