Transcriptional factor ATF3 protects against colitis by regulating follicular helper T cells in Peyer's patches.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Joint Program in Immunology, Department of Internal Medicine, Affiliated Guangzhou Women and Children's Medical Center, Zhongshan School of Medicine, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou 510623, China;

Disruption of mucosal immunity plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease, yet its mechanism remains not fully elucidated. Here, we found that activating transcription factor 3 (ATF3) protects against colitis by regulating follicular helper T (T) cells in the gut. The expression of ATF3 in CD4 T cells was negatively correlated with the severity of ulcerative colitis in clinical patients. Read More

Electronic address:

Numerous prophylactic antibiotic regimens (PBR) have been evaluated particularly in surgical abortion, hysterosalpingography or caesarean section, but few randomized comparative trials are available. Recommendations for PBR should take into account, expected and demonstrated benefits that reduce the risk of surgical site infection, but also the impact on the microbiota, the risk of bacterial resistance selection, and the overall cost to the community. In addition, antibiotic prophylaxis is not the only one factor to reduce the risk of surgical site infection, such as preventive measures and good hygiene practices. Read More

Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a female upper genital tract inflammatory disorder that arises after sexually transmitted bacterial infections (STI). Factors modulating risk for reproductive sequelae include co-infection, microbiota, host genetics and physiology. In a pilot study of cervical samples obtained from women at high risk for STIs, we examined the potential for unbiased characterization of host, pathogen and microbiome interactions using whole transcriptome sequencing analysis of ribosomal RNA-depleted total RNAs (Total RNA-Seq).

Hydrosalpinx - Salpingostomy, salpingectomy or tubal occlusion.

Best Pract Res Clin Obstet Gynaecol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Human Development and Health Academic Unit, Faculty of Medicine, University of Southampton, Southampton, SO16 6YD, UK; Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Princess Anne Hospital, Level F, Coxford Road, Southampton, SO16 5YA, UK.

Tubal factors account for approximately 25% of cases of infertility, and the most severe manifestation of tubal disease is hydrosalpinx, accounting for 10-30% of tubal diseases. Hydrosalpinx is a distension or dilatation of the fallopian tube in the presence of a distal tubal occlusion, and the most common cause is pelvic inflammatory disease. Women with hydrosalpinges have lower implantation and pregnancy rates in assisted reproductive technology (ART), due to a combination of mechanical and chemical factors thought to disrupt the endometrial environment.

TLR3 deficiency exacerbates the loss of epithelial barrier function during genital tract Chlamydia muridarum infection.

PLoS One 2019 9;14(1):e0207422. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana, United States of America.

Problem: Chlamydia trachomatis infections are often associated with acute syndromes including cervicitis, urethritis, and endometritis, which can lead to chronic sequelae such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), chronic pelvic pain, ectopic pregnancy, and tubal infertility. As epithelial cells are the primary cell type productively infected during genital tract Chlamydia infections, we investigated whether Chlamydia has any impact on the integrity of the host epithelial barrier as a possible mechanism to facilitate the dissemination of infection, and examined whether TLR3 function modulates its impact.

Method Of Study: We used wild-type and TLR3-deficient murine oviduct epithelial (OE) cells to ascertain whether C. Read More

Endometrial TGF-β, IL-10, IL-17 and autophagy are dysregulated in women with recurrent implantation failure with chronic endometritis.

Reprod Biol Endocrinol 2019 Jan 3;17(1). Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Reproductive Medicine and Immunology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Chicago Medical School, Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, 830 West Court, Suite 400, Vernon Hills, IL, 60061, USA.

Background: Chronic endometritis (CE) is a condition which results in reduced receptivity of embryos by dysregulated lymphocyte subsets, abnormal expression of cytokines, chemokines and other regulatory molecules in the endometrium (EM). Macroautophagy (autophagy), the highly conserved cellular homeostasis pathway, plays an essential role in the development and function of T lymphocytes, and supports T cell lineage stability and survival fitness. The possible relationships between autophagy and local cytokine milieus in repeated implantation failure (RIF) with CE have not been elucidated yet. Read More
