Mechanism of Action and the Effect of Beta-Hydroxy-Beta-Methylbutyrate (HMB) Supplementation on Different Types of Physical Performance - A Systematic Review

study in human myoblast satellite cells, an increase in the expression of the MyoD protein, one of the markers indicating proliferation of muscle cells, was observed ( Kornasio et al., 2009 ). The same study also noted an increase in the number of cells following the rise of the others myogenic regulatory factors (MRFs, myogenin and MEF2) that are responsible for the differentiation of satellite cells, thus suggesting a direct effect of HMB on myoblast proliferation and differentiation ( Kornasio et al., 2009 ). A similar trend, i.e. an increase in the number of

Management of immune-related adverse events in patients treated with immune checkpoint inhibitors– Rheumatology point of view

1 Introduction The immune checkpoints, such as cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4, programmed cell death protein and programmed cell death protein ligand 1, were the normal self-regulatory pathways to control T-cell activities in human body. In tumor microenvironment, these molecules were overexpressed to inhibit the normal T-cell function and survival, leading to an escape from the destruction from immune system. The immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICPis) block this mechanism and restore the T-cell immunity to achieve tumor destructions. However, the

regulatory T cells in peripheral blood. Further studies will be needed for any conclusive evidence for the application of MSCT in patients with RA. Another potential reason for conflicting results in MSCT studies in RA is that the effective mode of administration of MSCs is still unknown. A comparative study of MSCs showed that intra-articular MSCs were superior in cartilage formation compared with other modes of administration ( 22 ). In previous studies, intraarticular administration of MSCs had a low efficacy in patients with RA ( 23 ). A new delivery method of MSCs

Changes of standard physiological-perceptual markers and circulating MicroRNAs in response to tennis match-play: A case report of two elite players

different blood samples used ( Wehmeier and Hilberg, 2014 ). While we analyzed capillary whole blood, venous blood serum had been examined in a previous study ( Aoi et al., 2013 ). In contrast to blood serum, capillary blood still contains cells, which may contribute to the differences in observed C T values ( Wehmeier and Hilberg, 2014 ). Since all C T values of this study were below the cut-off value of 35 PCR cycles, where circulating miRs are difficult to quantify ( Aoi et al., 2013 ), our results are appropriate and allow further discussions. Our first major
