Summary:

The aim of investigation was to evaluate the characteristics of the response of rat peritoneal leukocytes and mast cells (MC) when using experimental aseptic inflammation. Material and Methods: Rats of the 1st group (n=7) were intra-peritoneally injected with 1 % thioglycolate broth, animals ofthe2nd(n=7)— the same broth, diluted 1:10. Control group rats (n=8) received an equal volume of saline. After removing animals from the experiment in the peritoneal fluid, the number of leukocytes was counted and their viability was evaluated. MC degranulation was detected by toluidine blue technique. All MCs were divided according to the degree of degranulation. Results: A model of aseptic inflammation of the peritoneum was reproduced. It was found that the number of leukocytes of peritoneal fluid, especially the number of non-viable cells, increases by more than 2 times with an increase in the concentration of the eluting agent (p<0.05). In experimental animals, the number of MCs with signs of degranulation increased to 89.5±2.2% compared with their level in the control group (49.0±3.9%; p<0.05). Conclusion: With the introduction of thioglycolate broth into the rats peritoneal cavity, an adequate model of inflammation is reproduced, suitable for studying the activity of different types of cells and humoral factors. The clinical picture of inflammation varies depending on the degree of degranulation of MC, which confirms their participation in the development of the pathological process.

Summary:

The goal to assess the morphological and functional state of the spleen of white male rats under the influence of light desynchronosis and to analyze the degree of reversibility of these changes. Material and methods. The experiment was carried out in two stages on 60 white male rats, divided into five equal groups: control and four experimental. In the first series of the experiment, the first and second experimental groups were illuminated around the clock for 10 and 21 days. At the second stage, animals of the third and fourth groups were exposed to illumination around the clock for 10 and 21 days, and then kept in natural light for 21 days. The following morphological and morphometric parameters were evaluated: the area of the lymphoid follicle, T- and B-dependent zones of white pulp, the number of reproduction centers and immunoblasts in the T- and B-zones in 10 fields of view. Results. On the 10th day of the experiment, there was an increase in the area of the lymphoid follicle, T- and B-dependent zones, the number of immunoblasts when compared with the control. In animals of the third group, an increase in these indicators was observed. On the 21st day, a decrease in all measured values was noted. In animals of the fourth group, the indicators increased relative to the second experimental one and approached the control values. Conclusion. The detected morphological and functional changes in the spleen are associated with the negative effects of prolonged light deprivation on the organs of the immune system. However, indicators are subject to change.

Summary:

The objective of the article is to estimate the impact of the histaminergic system in the effects of skin flap autotrans-plantation (SFA) on microcirculation in white rats with alloxan insulin deficiency. Material and Methods: The studies were carried out in 60 white rats, divided into 3 groups: 20 control intact animals, 20 animals with alloxan diabetes — the comparison group, 20 animals with alloxan diabetes and SFA— the experimental group. The mechanisms of blood circulation modulation and perfusion of posterior paw dorsal skin, the concentration of histamine in the blood serum, and morphological changes in the SFAarea were evaluated. Results: The significant increase of skin perfusion on 43%, redistribution of microcirculation modulation active mechanisms and the increase in histamine serum concentration in 2,5 times underthe influence of SFA were observed in rats of the experimental group. Conclusion: The distant stimulating effect of SFA on microcirculation in conditions of absolute insulin deficiency is realized with increasing histamine serum concentration. Moreover, the stimulation of the blood flow regulation active mechanisms by increasing the histamine concentration is not equivalent — the effects on endothelium-dependent and neurogenic regulation mechanisms prevail, and the activation of histamine smooth muscle cell receptors is much less pronounced.

Summary:

Macrophages are heterogeneous population of cells, which differentiate into distinct functional groups depending of the external signals. Agonists of toll-like receptors (TLRs) and cytokines bind to corresponding receptors and cause changes in the metabolism and expression of genes in myeloid cells located in the innate immune system. These changes in phagocytes are occurring during their activation. As a result, they become polarized, acquiring a determined phenotype. This gene expression changes realize in the tumor microenvironment. mTOR — serine/threonine protein kinase, which receives various signals from cell environment. It causes changes in protein biosynthesis and cell metabolism. mTOR takes part in the activation of macrophages influenced by cytokines or agonists of TLRs. It determines the role of kinase in reprogramming mechanisms and in the regulation of cytokines production according to the type of received signals respectively. The review has been made about the role of mTOR in macrophages' reprogramming, in particular tumor-associated ones. The PubMed resource is used for information search

Organization: Saratov State Medical University
Summary:

Objective: to clarify specifics of articular cartilage metabolism regulation in early stages of gonarthrosis. Material and Methods. 66 women aged 41 to 60 у. o. (median age 49 years; Q25%=44; Q75%=55) were examined. The control (n=30) and the main (n=36) groups were arranged depending on knee osteoarthritis clinical and instrumental presentations, or their absence. The levels of cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP), acidic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-1), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-A), interleukin-1 (3 (IL-1 (3) and superoxide dismutase-2 (SOD-2) in serum have been determined by solid-phase enzyme immunoassay. Results. There was a statistically significant increase in the level of COMP in blood serum as well as the increase in number and strengthening of negative correlation between cytokinesand SOD-2 in women of the main group. Conclusion. The increased content of COMP in blood serum and the rise in number of negative correlations between SOD-2 on the one hand, and COMP, IL-1 (3 and VEGF-A on the other may be early osteoarthritis presentations in the examined individuals.

Distinctive features of morphological changes in renal tissue with different models of light desynchronosis

Year: 2019, volume 15 Issue: №3 Pages: 697-700
Heading: Рathophysiology Article type: Original article

Summary:

Purpose: a comparative analysis of the morphological changes of the kidneys that occur with different models of light desynchronization. Material and Methods. The study was conducted in two stages on 60 white male rats. Model LL 0:24 was studied on the first and second experimental groups, which were in conditions of round-the-clock light exposure for 10 and 21 days. Model LD 18: 6 was studied in the third and fourth experimental groups, which were also in the experimental conditions for 10 and 21 days, respectively. The control group throughout the experiment was in vivo. Results. The recorded decrease in the size of the renal corpus in animals of the third and fourth groups is more persistent and pronounced compared with changes in the first group. The reduction in the area of the vascular glomeru-lus and the expansion of the Shumlyansky — Bowman capsule with round-the-clock illumination are observed only for 21 days, and when studying the 18:6 model, these figures are significantly different from the control values already on the 10th day of the experiment. Also, animals of the third experimental group recorded significant changes in thejuxta-medullary nephrons, which is associated with the activation of collateral blood flow on the 10th day of the experiment. Conclusion. The detected morphological changes indicate a stronger stress effect of the LD 18:6 model, compared with the LL 0:24 model. However, in both experimental groups, the observed changes are ischemic in nature, leading to the development of sclerotic changes, which can adversely affect the work of the kidneys and lead to the development of irreversible changes.
