The largest ever recorded epidemic of the chikungunya virus (CHIKV) began in 2004 and affected four continents. Acute symptomatic infections are typically associated with the onset of fever and often debilitating polyarthralgia/polyarthritis. In this study, a systems biology approach was used to analyze the blood transcriptomes of adults acutely infected with CHIKV. Gene signatures that were associated with viral RNA amounts and to the onset of symptoms were identified. Among those genes, the pu...

Abstract Objective To assess whether the HLA-G immunomodulatory protein is potentially involved in the pathophysiology of endometriosis or disease progression. Study design Cross-sectional observational study of 227 women who underwent laparoscopy, being 146 for endometriosis excision and 81 for elective tubal ligation (control group). Soluble HLA-G (sHLA-G) levels in the serum and peritoneal fluid (PF), as well as the HLA-G protein expression in matched eutopic and ectopic endometrium of women ...

Summary Zika virus is an emerging pathogen of substantial public health concern to human beings. Although most infections are asymptomatic or present with benign, self-limited symptoms, a small percentage of patients have complications, such as congenital anomalies in the developing fetus of pregnant women infected with the virus and neurological complications (eg, Guillain-Barre syndrome). To date, there is no vaccine, antiviral drug, or other modality available to prevent or treat Zika virus i...
