Article
The off‐label use of imiquimod (IQ) for hemangioma treatment has shown clinical benefits. We have previously reported a selective direct IQ‐cytotoxic effect on transformed (H5V) vs normal (1G11) endothelial cells (EC). In the present study we investigated the mechanism underlying this selective cytotoxicity in terms of TLR7/8 receptor expression, N...
Article
This study aimed to investigate the acute effects of chlorpyrifos on biomarkers related to neurotoxicity and immunotoxicity in two allopatric freshwater gastropod species belonging to the family Planorbidae. For this purpose, Planorbarius corneus and Biomphalaria glabrata were exposed to chlorpyrifos (active ingredient or commercial formulation) fo...

Infantile hemangiomas are the most common benign tumors of infancy, characterized by unregulated angiogenesis and endothelial cells with high mitotic rate. Although spontaneous regression occurs, sometimes treatment is required and alternatives to corticosteroids should be considered to reduce side effects. Imiquimod is an imidazoquinoline, approve...

Dendritic cells (DCs) play a pivotal role in the orchestration of immune responses, and are thus key targets in cancer vaccine design. Since the 2010 FDA approval of the first cancer DC-based vaccine (Sipuleucel-T), there has been a surge of interest in exploiting these cells as a therapeutic option for the treatment of tumors of diverse origin. In...
Article
Immune evasion strategies are important for the onset and the maintenance of viral infections. Many viruses have evolved mechanisms to counteract or suppress the host immune response. We have previously characterized two syncytial (syn) variants of Herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1) strain F, syn14-1 and syn17-2, obtained by selective pressure with a natural...

Proteoglycan accumulation within the arterial intima has been implicated in atherosclerosis progression in humans. Nevertheless, hypercholesterolaemia is unable to induce intimal thickening and atheroma plaque development in rats. The study was performed to analyse proteoglycans modifications in rats fed with a high-cholesterol diet to understand w...
Article
De novo ectopic lymphoid tissue formation is known to occur in certain disease and inflammatory settings. After an effective vaccination with dendritic cells (DC) charged with melanoma apoptotic/necrotic cells (Apo/Nec), a subcutaneous tertiary lymphoid structure was organized, where retained vaccine cells interacted with recruited inflammatory and...
Article
We have initially shown that DC/ApoNec vaccine can induce protection against the poorly immunogenic B16F1 melanoma in mice. The population of DC obtained for vaccination after 7days culture with murine GM-CSF is heterogeneous and presents about 60% of CD11c+ DC. Therefore, our purpose was to identify the phenotype of the cells obtained after differ...

Decorin and biglycan proteoglycans play important roles in the organization of the extracellular matrix, and in the regulation of cell adhesion and migration. Given morphological and functional endothelial heterogeneity, information is needed regarding whether endothelial cells (ECs) from different vascular beds possess different profiles of proteo...
Article
Antigen presentation by dendritic cells (DC) is of key importance for the initiation of the primary immune response. Mice vaccinated with DC charged with apoptotic/necrotic B16 cells (DC-Apo/Nec) are protected against B16 challenge. The aim of this study was to assess vaccine cell migration in our system and to find out if there is an immunological...

Chemokines such as monocyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1 are key agonists that attract macrophages to tumors. In melanoma, it has been previously shown that variable levels of MCP-1/CCL2 appear to correlate with infiltrating macrophages and tumor fate, with low to intermediate levels of the chemokine contributing to melanoma development. To work...

El desarrollo y progresión tumoral es un proceso regulado por las propiedades de las células tumorales en sí mismas pero también por el microambiente circundante. En el estroma tumoral se encuentran fibroblastos, células endoteliales, células mononucleares, macrófagos, linfocitos, células B activadas y neutrófilos; participando conjuntamente en pro...
Article
Murine endothelial cells (ECs) have proven difficult to obtain and maintain in culture. Long-term maintenance of normal ECs remains a difficult task. In this article we report the establishment of the first cellular line of renal microvascular endothelium obtained from normal tissue. Cells were isolated, cloned, and maintained by serial passages fo...
Article
There is growing evidence that necrosis, instead of apoptosis, could act as a natural adjuvant, which could activate an immune response. In this work we have investigated if induction of tumor necrosis could trigger the affluence of inflammatory cells at the tumor site, and thus induce an immune response. For this purpose, a liquid N2 spray was app...
Article
Rhodanese (thiosulphate:cyanide sulphurtransferase) shows distinctive mitochondrial and cytoplasmic activities in several models of tumorigenesis. To investigate the basis for these differences, the enzyme was purified from mitochondrial and cytosolic liver fractions of mice treated with the carcinogen p-dimethyl-aminoazobenzene (DAB) and some inhi...

In order to clearly visualize blood vessels, the monoclonal antibody (mAb) MEC 13.3 was used for an immunohistochemical staining on frozen sections of different mice mammary tumors. MEC 13.3 mAb is specific for endothelial cells (ECs) of mouse blood vessels and recognizes a molecule related to the murine form of CD31/PECAM. This mAb with immunoenzy...
