Regulatory T-Cells (Tregs) Within Bone Marrow-Derived Stem Cells (BMSCs) Actively Confer Immunomodulatory and Neuroprotective Effects Against Stroke

Poster

We found a distinct subpopulation of Tregs within BMSCs. Tregs and BMSCs in co-culture conferred neuroprotection that varied in a dose-dependent manner. Tregs minimized stem cell production of IL-6, a pro-inflammatory cytokine, and inhibited BMSC secretion of FGF-beta, a cytokine related to BMSC proliferation and differentiation. The ratio of Tregs found natively in BMSCs is optimally adapted to provide the maximum neuroprotective benefit of stem cell treatment after ischemic stroke.

Comparing The Anti-Alzheimer's Activity of Different Types of Coffee

Poster

This study found that coffee solutions treated at 5% are toxic to neurons. However, the toxicity reduced significantly at 2.5%. While the toxicity was significantly less allowing for more cells to survive at 2.5%, the levels of toxic amyloid beta 1-42 significantly reduced. This reduction in amyloid beta is associated with improvement in cognitive performance, as the presence of these toxic peptides is one of the characteristics of AD pathophysiology.

C1 Complement mediates human cord blood serum derived APP α-secretase cleavage activity in vitro

Poster

Our results indicate that CBS contains proteins that promote α-secretase like enzymatic activity. LC-MS/MS analysis in CBSF and AgBSF revealed the presence of 142 proteins of which C1 subunits and alpha-2-macroglobulin showed significantly greater levels in αCBSF compared with αAgBSF. further study showed,C1 subunits can enhance sAPPα production and Aβ reduction in cell culture condition
