Modulation of T regulatory and dendritic cell phenotypes following ingestion of Bifidobacterium longum, active hexose correlated compound (AHCC®) and azithromycin in healthy individuals (2019)
Journal Article
Chowdhury, A. H., Cámara, M., Verma, C., Eremin, O., Kulkarni, A. D., & Lobo, D. N. (2019). Modulation of T regulatory and dendritic cell phenotypes following ingestion of Bifidobacterium longum, active hexose correlated compound (AHCC®) and azithromycin in healthy individuals. Nutrients, 11(10), https://doi.org/10.3390/nu11102470

The probiotic Bifidus BB536 (BB536), which contains Bifidobacterium longum, has been shown to have enhanced probiotic effects when given together with a standardized extract of cultured Lentinula edodes mycelia (AHCC®, Amino Up Co. Ltd., Sapporo, Jap... Read More

Structure-Kinetic Profiling of Haloperidol Analogues at the Human Dopamine D2 Receptor (2019)
Journal Article
Fyfe, T. J., Kellam, B., Sykes, D. A., Capuano, B., Scammells, P. J., Lane, J. R., …Mistry, S. N. (2019). Structure-Kinetic Profiling of Haloperidol Analogues at the Human Dopamine D2 Receptor. Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.jmedchem.9b00864

Haloperidol is a typical antipsychotic drug (APD) associated with an increased risk of extrapyramidal side-effects (EPS) and hyperprolactinemia relative to atypical APDs such as clozapine. Both drugs are dopamine D2 receptor (D2R) antagonists, with c... Read More

Codrug Approach for the Potential Treatment of EML4-ALK Positive Lung Cancer (2019)
Journal Article
Garces, A. E., Al-Hayali, M., Lee, J. B., Li, J., Gershkovich, P., Bradshaw, T. D., & Stocks, M. J. (2019). Codrug Approach for the Potential Treatment of EML4-ALK Positive Lung Cancer. ACS Medicinal Chemistry Letters, https://doi.org/10.1021/acsmedchemlett.9b00378

We report on the synergistic effect of PI3K inhibition with ALK inhibition for the possible treatment of EML4-ALK positive lung cancer. We have brought together ceritinib (ALK inhibitor) and pictilisib (PI3K inhibitor) into a single bivalent molecule... Read More

Timing is everything – impact of naturally occurring Staphylococcus aureus AgrC cytoplasmic domain adaptive mutations on auto-induction (2019)
Journal Article
Sloan, T. J., Murray, E., Yokoyama, M., Massey, R. C., Chan, W. C., Bonev, B., & Williams, P. (2019). Timing is everything – impact of naturally occurring Staphylococcus aureus AgrC cytoplasmic domain adaptive mutations on auto-induction. Journal of Bacteriology, doi:10.1128/jb.00409-19

Mutations in the polymorphic Staphylococcus aureus agr locus responsible for quorum sensing (QS) dependent virulence gene regulation occur frequently during host adaptation. In two genomically closely related S. aureus clinical isolates exhibiting ma... Read More

Examining diabetic heel ulcers through an ecological lens: microbial community dynamics associated with healing and infection (2019)
Journal Article
Sloan, T. J., Turton, J. C., Tyson, J., Musgrove, A., Fleming, V. M., Lister, M. M., …Jeffcoate, W. (2019). Examining diabetic heel ulcers through an ecological lens: microbial community dynamics associated with healing and infection. Journal of Medical Microbiology, 68(2), 230-240. doi:10.1099/jmm.0.000907

Purpose: While some micro-organisms, such as Staphylococcus aureus, are clearly implicated in causing tissue damage in diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), our knowledge of the contribution of the entire microbiome to clinical outcomes is limited. We profile... Read More
