Serum based metabolomics analysis revealed highly sensitive and specific panel of metabolic markers for differential diagnosis of Pulmonary Sarcoidosis and Tuberculosis

Dinesh Kumar, Ritu Raj, Avinash Jain, Anupam Guleria, Umesh Kumar, Mohit K. Rai, Harshit Singh, Saurabh Chaturvedi, Alok Nath, Durga Prasanna Misra & Vikas Agarwal
Tuberculosis (TB) and Sarcoidosis (SAR) are two inflammatory granulomatous diseases and often pose a diagnostic challenge for treating physicians due to their clinic-radiological resemblance [1]. Both these diseases mainly involve lungs and lymph nodes and often share similar clinical symptoms (such as fever, fatigue, weight loss and cough) [1]. TB, being infectious disease, requires demonstration of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. However, demonstration of pathogen is not always possible; therefore diagnosis is made based on clinical, pathological and...

Pathogen diversity drives the evolution of generalist HLA alleles

Máté Manczinger, Gábor Boross, Lajos Kemény, Viktor Müller, Tobias Lenz, Balázs Papp & Csaba Pál
Central players of the adaptive immune system are the groups of proteins encoded in the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), which shape the immune response against pathogens and tolerance to self-peptides. The corresponding genomic region is of particular interest, as it harbors more disease associations than any other region in the human genome, including associations with infectious diseases, autoimmune disorders, cancers, and neuropsychiatric diseases. Certain MHC molecules can bind to a much wider range of epitopes...

Fibroblasts (Tcf4) and mesenchymal progenitors (PDGFRα) correspond to the same cell type and are increased in skeletal muscle dystrophy, denervation and chronic damage

Osvaldo Contreras, Daniela Rebolledo, Juan Oyarzún & Enrique Brandan
Skeletal muscle fibrosis originates at least, from PDGFRα-positive cells (mesenchymal progenitors) that contribute to fat accumulation and fibrosis under pathogenic conditions in mice and humans. The transcription factor Tcf4 (Tcf7L2) identifies connective tissue fibroblasts that are closely associated with muscle. In vitro studies suggest that Tcf4 and PDGFRα identify the same cell type but there are no in vivo studies that corroborate these observation. Recently, our laboratory showed elevated numbers of Tcf4-positive cells in gastrocnemius...
