While visceral leishmaniasis (VL) presents high mortality if left untreated, most infections with the agent of the disease, Leishmania infantum, remain asymptomatic. The risk factors for developing VL are still not well known. VL is prevalent in middle and low-income populations and is characterized by a "cytokine storm".

Dendritic cells (DCs) are a subtype of cells specialized in antigen capture, processing and presentation, thus triggering the response of T lymphocytes. DCs may generate immunity or tolerance, depending on the extracellular signals they receive. DCs that receive tolerogenic signals, such as 1,25(OH)2D3, are characterized by their ability to generate, , CD4+CD25+FoxP3+ T lymphocytes or ...
Venous thrombosis is a potentially lethal disease that occurs in about 1-2/1000 people yearly and recurs in about 20-25% of patients within 5-10 years. New insights are linking thrombosis with inflammation, a concept called immunothrombosis. Recent work has shown that inflammatory response leads to increased levels of coagulation, dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis and thrombosis. Currently,...
