Alberto Bosque

Methods Mol Biol 2022 ;2407:45-55

Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Tropical Medicine, George Washington University, Washington, DC, USA.

Models to study HIV latency have improved our understanding of the mechanisms involved in this process and have helped in the discovery and development of therapeutic strategies to eradicate HIV. Primary cell models are based on the in vitro generation of latently infected cells using CD4T cells isolated from blood, lymph nodes or other lymphoid organs. In this chapter, we describe the generation of HIV latently infected memory CD4T cells using blood naïve CD4T cells from peripheral blood with a phenotype resembling that of central memory CD4T cells.

Characterisation of peri-implantation endometrial Treg and identification of an altered phenotype in recurrent pregnancy loss.

Mucosal Immunol 2022 Jan 22;15(1):120-129. Epub 2021 Sep 22.

Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health, L3 Women's Centre, John Radcliffe Hospital, University of Oxford, Oxford, UK.

Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL) affects 2-4% of couples, and with increasing numbers of pregnancy losses the risk of miscarrying a euploid pregnancy is increased, suggesting RPL is a pathology distinct from sporadic miscarriage that is due largely to lethal embryonic aneuploidy. There are a number of conditions associated with RPL including unspecified "immune" pathologies; one of the strongest candidates for dysregulation remains T regulatory cells as depletion in the very early stages of pregnancy in mice leads to pregnancy loss. Human endometrial Treg and conventional CD4T cells were isolated during the peri-implantation period of the menstrual cycle in normal women. Read More

Diagnostic value of serum human Galactomannan aspergillus antigen and 1,3-beta-D-glucan in immunocompromised patient suspected fungal infection.

J Clin Lab Anal 2021 Jun 4;35(6):e23806. Epub 2021 May 4.

Pulmonology and Respiratory Department of Faculty Medicine Brawijaya University, Dr. Saiful Anwar General Hospital, Malang, Indonesia.

Background: The prevalence of fungal infection (FI) in developing countries is high, but the diagnosis of FI is still challenging to determine, so it is needed evaluation of biomarkers other than microbiological culture, because the culture has low sensitivity, high cost, not available in every laboratory and needs a long time. The detection of human galactomannan Aspergillus antigen (GAL) and 1,3-beta-D-glucan (BDG) on the fungal cell wall could be the promising biomarkers for fungal infection. Neutropenia, lymphopenia and CD4T cells in the immunocompromised patients are essential factors, but these cell associations with BDG and GAL levels have not been evaluated yet. Read More

Cell Rep 2020 12 25;33(10):108406. Epub 2020 Nov 25.

Division of Environmental Health Sciences, School of Public Health and Center for Computational Biology, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA.

Astronauts undertaking long-duration space missions may be vulnerable to unique stressors that can impact human aging. Nevertheless, few studies have examined the relationship of mission duration with DNA-methylation-based biomarkers of aging in astronauts. Using data from the six participants of the Mars-500 mission, a high-fidelity 520-day ground simulation experiment, we tested relationships of mission duration with five longitudinally measured blood DNA-methylation-based metrics: DNAmGrimAge, DNAmPhenoAge, DNA-methylation-based estimator of telomere length (DNAmTL), mitotic divisions (epigenetic mitotic clock [epiTOC2]), and pace of aging (PoA).
