Induced hepatocyte-like (iHep) cells were generated from induced pluripotent stem cells integrated with the albumin reporter gene. The therapeutic properties of these iHep cells were investigated after transplantation in fibrotic liver tissues of a mouse model.

The three dihydroxystilbenes in this study inhibited colon carcinogenesis and tumor growth as well as increases in colon IL-1β, IL-6, MCP-1, and PD-1 levels in AOM/DDS-treated mice in vivo. The three dihydroxystilbenes also suppressed COX-2 expression in colon tumors in vivo and inhibited PD-1 elevations in M2-THP-1 macrophages in vitro.

Mice lacking intestinal TLR9 had profoundly increased liver injury after hepatic ischemia reperfusion(IR) compared to WT mice with exacerbated hepatocyte necrosis, apoptosis, neutrophil infiltration, and inflammatory cytokine generation. They also observed increased small intestinal inflammation and apoptosis after hepatic IR in intestinal TLR9 deficient mice. Fecal short‐chain fatty acids butyrate and propionate levels were lower in intestinal TLR9 deficient mice.

Using a vaccine-challenge model in HLA-DR transgenic mice, investigators demonstrated significant alterations in circulating T-cell and innate immune populations that distinguished vaccinated from naïve mice within ten days, and persisted until at least 35 days post-vaccination.

Investigators established anti-AQP4 recombinant autoantibodies from plasmablasts in neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder patient’s cereberospinal fluid.
Investigators report the first case of an adult patient with severe aplastic anemia who was successfully transplanted with a UM171‐expanded cord blood graft. After a conditioning of rabbit anti‐thymocyte globulin, fludarabine, cyclophosphamide and total body irradiation, a UM171 expanded graft of 3.29 x 106 CD34+ cells/kg was infused.
