Enhanced performance of nano-electrocatalysts of Pd and PdCo in neutral and alkaline media
Pd and PdCo nanostructures are synthesized by a soft-template route to be applied as electrocatalysts. Distinctive morphologies are obtained: nanowire-like structures, with mean diameter d = 33 nm (PdNW), forming an entangled ...
PD-L1 gene polymorphisms and low serum level of PD-L1 protein are associated to type 1 diabetes in Chile
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2014)
© 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. Introduction: Type 1 diabetes (T1D) has a complex etiology in which genetic and environmental factors are involved, whose interactions have not yet been completely clarified. In this context, ...
Enhanced programmed death 1 (PD-1) and PD-1 ligand (PD-L1) expression in patients with actinic cheilitis and oral squamous cell carcinoma
PD-1 and PD-L1 can be involved in tumor escape, and little is known about the role of these molecules in oral tumors or pre-malignant lesions. In the present study, we investigated the expression of PD-1 and PD-L1 in the ...
Polygenic risk prediction and SNCA haplotype analysis in a Latino Parkinson's disease cohort
Background: Large-scale Parkinson's disease (PD) genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have, until recently, only been conducted on subjects with European-ancestry. Consequently, polygenic risk scores (PRS) constructed ...
The PD-1/PD-L1 pathway as an immunotherapy target against cancerLa Vía de PD-1/PD-L1 como blanco de inmunoterapia contra el Cáncer

Controlled Pd deposition on fibers by electroless plating. The effects of the support on the reduction of nitrite in water
Pd catalysts supported on activated silica?alumina fibers (CFs) and activated carbon felts (ACFs) were prepared and evaluated for the reduction of nitrite in water in a batch reactor. The electroless plating (ELP) method ...
PD-L2 negatively regulates Th1-mediated immunopathology during Fasciola hepatica infection
Macrophage plasticity is critical for controlling inflammation including thoseproduced by helminth infections, where alternatively activated macrophages (AAM)are accumulated in tissues. AAM expressing the co-inhibitory ...
