Platelets accumulate in lung lesions of tuberculosis patients and inhibit T-cell responses and Mycobacterium tuberculosis replication in macrophages.

Eur J Immunol 2022 05 9;52(5):784-799. Epub 2022 Apr 9.

Central Laboratory of Advanced Diagnosis and Biomedical Research (CLADIBIOR).

Platelets regulate human inflammatory responses that lead to disease. However, the role of platelets in tuberculosis (TB) pathogenesis is still unclear. Here, we show that patients with active TB have a high number of platelets in peripheral blood and a low number of lymphocytes leading to a high platelets to lymphocytes ratio (PL ratio). Read More

IL-10 producing B cells regulated 1,3-β-glucan induced Th responses in coordinated with Treg.

Immunol Lett 2021 07 2;235:15-21. Epub 2021 May 2.

Division of Pneumoconiosis, School of Public Health, China Medical University, Shenyang, Liaoning, 110122, PR China. Electronic address:

Repeated exposure to fungi-contaminated dust can lead to multiple adverse effects on the lung, such as hypersensitivity pneumonitis, granuloma even irreversible fibrosis. 1,3-β-glucan, a major cell wall component of fungi, is considered as its exposure biomarker. Existing studies showed that a series of Th responses were involved in 1,3-β-glucan induced hypersensitivity pneumonitis, in which macrophages, Treg, and IL-10 producing B cells were reported to participate.

Histopathologic Spectrum of Intraoral Irritant and Contact Hypersensitivity Reactions: A Series of 12 cases.

Head Neck Pathol 2021 Dec 26;15(4):1172-1184. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Department of Oral Medicine Infection and Immunity, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, 188 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA, 02115, USA.

Background: Irritant contact stomatitis (ICS) and contact hypersensitivity stomatitis (CHS) are often caused by alcohol, flavoring agents and additives in dentifrices and foods, and contactants with high or low pH. A well-recognized contactant for ICS is Listerine™ mouthwash, while that for CHS is cinnamic aldehyde. However, many other flavoring agents and even smokeless tobacco are contactants that cause mucosal lesions that are entirely reversible. Read More

Side effects in breast implants related to radiotherapy in breast cancer reconstructive surgery.

Tech Innov Patient Support Radiat Oncol 2021 Jun 18;18:8-11. Epub 2021 Mar 18.

Instituto Brasileiro de Controle do Câncer - IBCC, Brazil.

Breast reconstructive surgery with silicone implants is routinely one of the techniques performed immediately after a mastectomy and before adjuvant radiotherapy. Implant shell degradation may result in gel bleeding that can trigger capsular disease. The silicone corpuscle in contact with the implant fibrous capsule can promote an inflammatory reaction, identified as silicone-induced granuloma which is, related to clinical complaints referred to as breast implant illness.

Laryngopharyngeal reflux disease management for recurrent laryngeal contact granuloma: A case report.

World J Clin Cases 2021 Mar;9(8):1989-1995

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, The Second Clinical College of Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, Guangzhou 510000, Guangdong Province, China.

Background: Laryngeal contact granuloma (LCG) is difficult to treat and frequently associated with high persistence and recurrence, despite the availability of both surgical and pharmacological treatment options. An appropriate strategy is therefore needed to help patients with multiple recurrences of LCG to potentially avoid unnecess-ary surgery.

Case Summary: We describe the case of a 34-year-old male patient with recurrent LCG in which a good response was achieved through successful management of laryngophar-yngeal reflux disease using a combination pharmacotherapeutic regimen consisting of anti-reflux therapy, pepsin secretion inhibition, bile acid neutralization, and lifestyle modifications.
