Cellular, Molecular, and Immunological Characteristics of Langhans Multinucleated Giant Cells Programmed by IL-15.

J Invest Dermatol 2020 Feb 22. Epub 2020 Feb 22.

Department of Medicine, Division of Dermatology, David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California (UCLA), Los Angeles, California, USA; Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics, David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California (UCLA), Los Angeles, California, USA. Electronic address:

Langhans multinucleated giant cells (LGCs) are a specific type of multinucleated giant cell containing a characteristic horseshoe-shaped ring of nuclei that are present within granulomas of infectious etiology. Although cytokines that trigger macrophage activation (such as IFN-γ) induce LGC formation, it is not clear whether cytokines that trigger macrophage differentiation contribute to LGC formation. Here, we found that IL-15, a cytokine that induces M1 macrophage differentiation, programs human peripheral blood adherent cells to form LGCs. Read More

Front Vet Sci 2019 28;6:286. Epub 2019 Aug 28.

Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, United States.

Granulomas can "mimic" gliomas on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in human patients. The goal of this retrospective study was to report canine brain granulomas that were consistent with glioma based upon MRI, report their histologic diagnosis, and identify MRI criteria that might be useful to distinguish granuloma from glioma. Ten granulomas, initially suspected to be glioma based on MRI, were ultimately diagnosed as granulomatous meningoencephalomyelitis ( = 5), infectious granulomas ( = 3) or other meningoencephalitis ( = 2).

Sonographic features of vaccination granulomas in children with delayed-type hypersensitivity to aluminum.

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Nov 2;36(6):1012-1016. Epub 2019 Sep 2.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Experimental, Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

In this article, we report the sonographic features of vaccination granulomas in three children sensitized to aluminum. Although the recognition of the vaccination granuloma relies on the clinical examination, misdiagnosis is frequent, leading to distressful procedures or prolonged antibiotic administration. In all our cases, sonography revealed a teardrop-shaped echogenic central structure, suggesting the deposition of aluminum crystals along the route of administration with consequent subcutaneous degenerative changes, and a surrounding hypoechoic cap, which reflects the changeable inflammatory reaction and the granuloma formation.

Egg-Released IPSE/alpha-1 Dampens Inflammatory Cytokine Responses Basophil Interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13.

Front Immunol 2018 10;9:2293. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Experimental Pneumology, Research Center Borstel, Airway Research Center North, Member of the German Center for Lung Research (DZL), Borstel, Germany.

Schistosomes control inflammation in their hosts highly effective mechanisms such as induction of Tregs, Bregs, and alternatively activated macrophages (AAMs). Notably, IPSE/alpha-1, the major secretory product from eggs, triggers basophils to release interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-13. Both cytokines are essential for AAM induction, suggesting an important role for IPSE/alpha-1 in inflammation control. Read More

is a peculiar rapid-growing (RGM) capable of surviving within eukaryotic cells thanks to an arsenal of virulence genes also found in slow-growing mycobacteria (SGM), such as A screen based on the intracellular survival in amoebae and macrophages (MΦ) of an transposon mutant library revealed the important role of MAB_0855, a yet uncharacterized Mycobacterial membrane protein Large (MmpL). Large-scale comparisons with SGM and RGM genomes uncovered MmpL12 proteins as putative orthologs of MAB_0855 and a locus-scale synteny between the and loci. A KO mutant of the gene, designated herein as , had impaired adhesion to MΦ and displayed a decreased intracellular viability. Read More
