Mesenchymal stem cell-conditioned medium reduces disease severity and immune responses in inflammatory arthritis (2017)
Journal Article
Kay, A. G., Long, G., Tyler, G., Stefan, A., Broadfoot, S. J., Piccinini, A. M., …Kehoe, O. (2017). Mesenchymal stem cell-conditioned medium reduces disease severity and immune responses in inflammatory arthritis. Scientific Reports, 7, doi:10.1038/s41598-017-18144-w

We evaluated the therapeutic potential of mesenchymal stem cell-conditioned medium (CM-MSC) as an alternative to cell therapy in an antigen-induced model of arthritis (AIA). Disease severity and cartilage loss were evaluated by histopathological anal...

Mapping tenascin-C interaction with toll-like receptor 4 reveals a new subset of endogenous inflammatory triggers (2017)
Journal Article
Zuliani-Alvarez, L., Marzeda, A. M., Deligne, C., Schwenzer, A., McCann, F. E., Marsden, B. D., …Midwood, K. S. (in press). Mapping tenascin-C interaction with toll-like receptor 4 reveals a new subset of endogenous inflammatory triggers. Nature Communications, 8(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-017-01718-7

Pattern recognition underpins innate immunity; the accurate identification of danger, including infection, injury, or tumor, is key to an appropriately targeted immune response. Pathogen detection is increasingly well defined mechanistically, but the...

Screening for novel endogenous inflammatory stimuli using the secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase NF-κB reporter assay (2017)
Journal Article
Zuliani-Alvarez, L., Piccinini, A. M., & Midwood, K. S. (2017). Screening for novel endogenous inflammatory stimuli using the secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase NF-κB reporter assay. Bio-protocol, 7(7), doi:10.21769/BioProtoc.2220

An immune response can be activated by pathogenic stimuli, as well as endogenous danger signals, triggering the activation of pattern recognition receptors and initiating signalling cascades that lead to inflammation. This method uses THP1-Blue™ cell... Read More about Screening for novel endogenous inflammatory stimuli using the secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase NF-κB reporter assay.
