Influence of immune activation and inflammatory response on cardiovascular risk associated with the human immunodeficiency virus.
Patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have an increased cardiovascular risk. Although initially this increased risk was attributed to metabolic alterations associated with antiretroviral treatment, in recent years, the attenti

Influence of immune activation on the risk of allograft rejection in human immunodeficiency virus-infected kidney transplant recipients.
HIV infection is associated with high rates of acute rejection following kidney transplantation. The underlying mechanisms for such predisposition are incompletely understood. Pathological immune activation is a hallmark of chronic HIV infection that

The Effect of Intracoronary Stem Cell Injection on Markers of Leukocyte Activation in Acute Myocardial Infarction.
Beneficial effects of stem cell treatment during acute myocardial infarction (AMI) have been suggested, but the effects on inflammation are controversial. The neutrophil cell markers pentraxin 3 (PTX3) and myeloperoxidase (MPO) are both reported to b

Immune activation in HIV infection: what can the natural hosts of simian immunodeficiency virus teach us?
The review summarizes studies in natural hosts, with a particular focus on the control of immune activation and new insights into viral reservoirs. We discuss why these findings are relevant for HIV research today.

Effect of stress and peripheral immune activation on astrocyte activation in transgenic bioluminescent Gfap-luc mice.
Neuroinflammation and the accompanying activation of glial cells is an important feature of many neurodegenerative conditions. It is known that factors such as peripheral infections and stress can influence immune processes in the brain. However, the

Effect of rosuvastatin on hyperuricemic rats and the protective effect on endothelial dysfunction.
Endothelial dysfunction plays a key role in the development of cardiovascular diseases, renal injuries and hypertension induced by hyperuricemia. Therapies targeting uric acid (UA) may be beneficial in cardiovascular diseases. In the present study, t

The Effect of Krill Oil Supplementation on Exercise Performance and Markers of Immune Function.
Krill oil is a rich source of the long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which may alter immune function after exercise. The aim of the study was to determine the effects of kri

Effect of steroids on the activation status of platelets in patients with Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).
The activation status of platelets in Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP) patients--which is still somewhat controversial--is of potential interest, because activated platelets tend to aggregate (leading to excessive clotting or thromboembolic events) but

A Randomized Placebo Controlled Trial of Aspirin Effects on Immune Activation in Chronically Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Infected Adults on Virologically Suppressive Antiretroviral Therapy.
Immune activation persists despite suppressive antiretroviral therapy (ART) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and predicts non-Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) comorbidities including cardiovascular disease. Activated platelet

Association between cellular immune activation, target cell frequency, and risk of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 superinfection.
We performed a case-control study of women at risk of HIV-1 superinfection to understand the relationship between immune activation and HIV-1 acquisition. An increase in the frequency of HIV-1 target cells, but not in other markers of T cell activati
