Article
Background: Chromofungin (CHR: chromogranin-A 47-66) is a chromogranin-A derived peptide with anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Ulcerative colitis (UC) is characterized by a colonic decrease of CHR and a dysregulation of dendritic CD11c+ cells. Aim: To investigate the association between CHR treatment and dendritic cells (DCs)-rel...

The pro-inflammatory mediator receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappa B ligand (RANKL) plays a significant role in the development of rheumatoid arthritis; however, its role in inflammatory bowel disease is unknown. Genome-wide association meta-analysis for Crohn’s disease (CD) identified a variant near the TNFSF11 gene that encodes RANKL and CD...

Background Ulcerative colitis (UC) is characterized by altered levels of chromogranin-A (CHGA) and a dysregulation of dendritic cells (DCs). CHGA, a prohormone protein, can be cleaved into several bioactive peptides including chromofungin (CHR: CHGA47-66) encoded by CHGA Exon-IV. Previously, we demonstrated that CHR is reduced in active UC patients...
Article
We have previously shown that poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP)-1 gene deletion in mice provide robust protection against lung inflammation in the context of asthma and acute lung injury. Olaparib is a potent new generation PARP inhibitor that has been approved for human testing in cancer patients. The present work was designed to evaluate its be...

We have previously shown that PARP-1 inhibition provides protection against lung inflammation in the context of asthma and acute lung injury. Olaparib is a potent new generation PARP inhibitor that has been approved for human testing. The present work was designed to evaluate its beneficial potential against LPS-induced acute lung injury and acute...
