The acute and sub chronic effects of oil sands process affected water (OSPW) and its toxic component, naphthenic acids (NAs) were examined. I exposed goldfish for one (acute), or 12 (sub chronic) weeks and examined immune gene expression, macrophage function, the ability of exposed fish to...
Teleosts rely on innate immunity to protect themselves from pathogens. Colony stimulating factor-1 (CSF-1) and its cognate receptor CSF-1R control survival, proliferation, differentiation and function of macrophages. Recently, a novel soluble form of CSF-1R (sCSF-1R) was identified in goldfish....
Clinical impact of submicroscopic malaria on delivery outcomes and the role of VAR2CSA antibodies in pregnant women from ColombiaDownload
Malaria caused by the genus Plasmodium (P.) is one of the oldest and most important parasitic infections globally. Pregnant women are at an increased risk for malaria, where the disease poses a significant risk to both maternal and child health. Better diagnosis of malaria can have an immediate...
Evaluating the Role of Bacterial Lipopolysaccharide on Etiology and Pathogenesis of Transmissible Spongiform EncephalopathiesDownload
Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) or otherwise known as prion diseases are a class of fatal neurodegenerative diseases related to irreversible brain damage. Presently, there is no effective treatment or preventive strategy for this disease because the etiology and biological...
The Role of Haemocytes in the Immune Response of Biomphalaria glabrata against Schistosoma mansoni: Investigations into Haematopoiesis and Pattern Recognition ReceptorsDownload
Snails (Gastropoda) serve as hosts for the larval development of many medically and agriculturally important digenean trematodes (parasitic flatworms), including schistosomes, blood flukes that collectively infect more than 260 million people globally. Compatibility between snails and digeneans...
The inflammatory response is a complex biological process initiated following the recognition of noxious stimuli. It is composed of an elaborate cascade of both pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators, essential for effective defenses against infection, the removal of damaged cells, and the...
