Elucidating the Innate Immunological Effects of Mild Magnetic Hyperthermia on U87 Human Glioblastoma Cells: An In Vitro Study

Cancer immunotherapies have been approved as standard second-line or in some cases even as first-line treatment for a wide range of cancers. However, immunotherapy has not shown clinically relevant success in glioblastoma (GBM). This is principally due to the brain’s “immune-privileged” status and the peculiar tumor microenvironment (TME) of GBM characterized by a lack of …

Cryptosporidium and Giardia in Livestock in Tigray, Northern Ethiopia and Associated Risk Factors for Infection: A Cross-Sectional Study

The occurrence and species/genotypes of Cryptosporidium and Giardia duodenalis infecting young livestock in selected districts of Tigray, Ethiopia were investigated, along with risks associated with infection. A total of 757 faecal samples were collected from calves, lambs, and goat kids from four rural districts in Tigray, and also from calves in periurban Mekelle, Tigray’s main city, and analysed for Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia cysts. Farmers …

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: Taxonomy and diversity of Afroalpine Chironomidae (Insecta: Diptera) on Mount Kenya and the Rwenzori Mountains, East Africa.

Taxonomy and diversity of Afroalpine Chironomidae (Insecta: Diptera) on Mount Kenya and the Rwenzori Mountains, East Africa.

Aim Anthropogenic local weather change is predicted to end in the full loss of glaciers from the excessive mountains of tropical Africa, with profound impacts on the hydrology and ecology of distinctive tropical cold-water lakes positioned downstream from them. This research examines the biodiversity of Chironomidae (Insecta: Diptera) communities in these scarce Afroalpine lake methods, to …

Evolution of Neuropeptide Precursors in Polyneoptera (Insecta).

Evolution of Neuropeptide Precursors in Polyneoptera (Insecta).

Neuropeptides are among the many structurally most various signaling molecules and take part in intercellular info switch from neurotransmission to intrinsic or extrinsic neuromodulation. Many of the peptidergic methods have a really historical origin that may be traced again to the early evolution of the Metazoa. In latest years, new insights into the evolution of …
