ABSTRACT Activation of nuclear factor kappaB by diverse bacteria regulates the secretion of chemokines and cytokines. Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus)-infected osteoblasts can significantly increase the secretion of interleukin-6 and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1. The aim of this study was to investigate whether S. aureus can activate nuclear factor kappaB in human osteoblasts, and whether the activation of nuclear factor kappaB by S. aureus regulates the secretion of interleukin-6 and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1.

    ABSTRACT: Monoclonal gammopathy reflects a serological disorder suggesting a plasma cell dyscrasia or a B-cell abnormality. However, it may occasionally be encountered as a transient manifestation in the course of several diseases including infections. This is the first reported case of a transient monoclonal gammopathy IgG lambda light chain associated with a Staphylococcus aureus infection that was complicated with renal abscess and vertebral spondylodiscitis in a previously healthy 68-year-old male. We observed a complete resolution of the gammopathy within three months of medical treatment before the entire restoration of all clinical and laboratory findings. Many invasive and cost-intensive diagnostic procedures had preceded the exclusion of a malignancy. The clinical significance and the exact pathogenesis of transient monoclonality are poorly understood and remain a matter of speculation.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the significance of C-C chemokine receptor type 5 (CCR5) in lung tumor development, we compared carcinogen-induced tumor growth in CCR5 knockout (CCR5(-/-)) mice and wild-type (CCR5(+/+)) mice. CCR5(-/-) mice showed reduced urethane (1g/kg)-induced tumor incidence when compared with those of CCR5(+/+) mice. We investigated the activation of nuclear factor-kappaB/STAT3 since these are implicated transcription factors in the regulation of genes involving tumor growth. Significant inhibition of DNA-binding activity of nuclear factor-kappaB and STAT3, and the translocation of p50 and p65 into the nucleus and the phosphorylation of IĸB were found in the lungs of CCR5(-/-) mice compared with the lungs of CCR5(+/+) mice. Expression of apoptotic protein such as cleaved caspase-3, cleaved PARP and Bax was elevated, whereas the expression levels of survival protein such as Bcl-2 and cIAP1 was decreased in the lungs of CCR5(-/-) mice. Interestingly, we found that the level of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), a tumor growth-promoting cytokine, was significantly reduced in the lung tumor tissue and blood of CCR5(-/-) mice compared with the level in CCR5(+/+) mice. In addition, CCR5 small interfering RNA (siRNA) and inhibitor of MCP-1 blocked lung cancer cell growth, which was abolished by the addition of MCP-1 protein in cultured lung cancer cells. Moreover, inactivation of CD8(+) cytotoxic T cell and dendritic cells was significantly increased in the blood, lung tumors and spleens of CCR5(-/-) mice compared with that of CCR5(+/+) mice. Therefore, these results showed that CCR5 deficiency suppressed lung tumor development through the inhibition of nuclear factor-kappaB/STAT3 pathways and the downregulation of MCP-1 in the carcinogen-induced lung tumor model.

    ABSTRACT: Some experimental data in well-established rat models suggest that elevated tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α levels may be directly related to histopathological changes during osteomyelitis [1]. Local release of interleukin-6 (IL-6) is also increased in bacterial osteomyelitis [2]. However, no data about local release of IL-6 and TNF-α in cases of foot osteomyelitis in patients with diabetes have been reported. © 2013 The Authors. Diabetic Medicine © 2013 Diabetes UK.
