With LRI funding, Dr health . Winchester will collaborate with a lupus pregnancy expert and rheumatologist to explore the novel hypothesis that preeclampsia in lupus is caused by a drastic reduced number of immune system cells that promote the growth of the placenta. In normal pregnancy, the reduction of immune cells would be considered positive, but in lupus patients, this condition may lead to preeclampsia. However, it isssible findings can be seen and powerful new ways to modify this response in women with lupus and set severe complications for a particularly vulnerable patient population cause. Mark Walter, professor of microbiology at the University of Alabama, Birmingham use LRI grant to investigate directly the human lupus samples and the type 1 interferon responsible molecules of the overactive immune response in lupus that causes damage to tissues and organs.
If successful, this exciting research will open the door to more precisely targeted anti-IFN therapies in lupus, from unnecessary from unnecessary treatments and pave the way for potential therapies in the future. Tyler Curiel, professor of medicine in the Division of Hematology and Oncology at the University of Texas Health Science Center, fic causes for the disproportionately high prevalence of lupus in women to explore.
Which is smaller. Semantic perceptions numbers as humans ‘, regardless of their language.
In their experiments appear Cantlon and & Brannon presents ape having two arrays in randomized numbers of dots on one computer touch screen on randomized positions Yet instead. Be used monkeys instruct the monkeys, was small larger ‘and ‘minor pick ‘The researchers made the backdrop blue when the monkeys were for the higher number and rot to select if the lesser number. To monkey with a mouthful from a sweet beverage was rewarded for correct answers. ‘Our results indicated a very big semantics congruity effect’wherein Cantlon. ‘For example, when the number said pair was small, such as two towards three were the monkey much faster to the election of the smaller as compared to to the greater of the two we have ‘impressed by at the high level of the the precision of ape on this difficult discrimination case, she said. ‘It is clear, even though its ability with a with language, it is nevertheless to that semantic red or blue signal does monkeys monkeys,’said Cantlon.
