Anal Human Papillomavirus Infection among HIV-Infected Men in Korea

Background Little is known about the epidemiology on human papillomavirus (HPV) infection among HIV-infected men in Korea. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence, genotype distribution and risk factors associated with anal HPV infection among HIV-infected men in Korea. Methods A single-center cross-sectional study was conducted with HIV-infected men in Korea. ...

Hypoxia induces expression of COX-2 through the homeodomain transcription factor CDX1 and orphan nuclear receptor SHP in human endometrial cells

Endometriosis, the presence of ectopic endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity, is a common disease affecting women during their reproductive years. The aim of this study was to identify the molecular mechanism of transcriptional regulation of inflammatory cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) gene during endometriosis by hypoxia. Hypoxia induced COX-2 expression in endometrial cells ...

Proteomic Identification of ADAM12 as a Regulator for TGF-β1-Induced Differentiation of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells to Smooth Muscle Cells

Background Transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) induces the differentiation of human adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hASCs) into smooth muscle cells. Lipid rafts are cholesterol-rich microdomains in cell membranes that reportedly play a key role in receptor-mediated signal transduction and cellular responses. In order to clarify whether lipid rafts are involved in ...

Modulation of neutrophil apoptosis by plasma and peritoneal fluid from patients with advanced endometriosis

BACKGROUND: The increased production of pro-inflammatory chemoattractant cytokines for neutrophils in endometriosis suggests that changes in the immune system play an important role in the pathophysiology of endometriosis. The effects of plasma and peritoneal fluid from patients with advanced endometriosis on the apoptosis of neutrophils were investigated. METHODS: Apoptotic ...

Effects of peritoneal fluid from endometriosis patients on the release of vascular endothelial growth factor by neutrophils and monocytes

BACKGROUND: An increase in the level of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) production has been reported in the peritoneal fluid (PF) of endometriosis patients. This suggests that changes in the vascular permeability and angiogenesis play an important role in the pathophysiology of this disease. This study examined the effects of the PF obtained from endometriosis ...
