  1. Quantification and molecular characterization of regulatory T cells in connective tissue diseases.
  2. Effects of zearalenone on oxidative stress and inflammation in weanling piglets.
  3. Roles of CD147 on T lymphocytes activation and MMP‐9 secretion in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.
  4. Natural feed contaminant zearalenone decreases the expressions of important pro-and anti-inflammatory mediators and mitogen-activated protein kinase/NF-κB signalling molecules in pigs.
  5. Peripheral blood lymphocytes analysis detects CD100/SEMA4D alteration in systemic sclerosis patients.
  6. Exposure to zearalenone mycotoxin alters in vitro porcine intestinal epithelial cells by differential gene expression.
  7. ω-3 PUFA rich Camelina oil by-products improve the systemic metabolism and spleen cell functions in fattening pigs.
  8. Serum levels of matrix metalloproteinases MMP-2 and MMP-9 and their tissue natural inhibitors in breast tumors..
  9. Zearalenone mycotoxin affects immune mediators, MAPK signalling molecules, nuclear receptors and genome-wide gene expression in pig spleen.
  10. PI3K/Akt signaling in peripheral T lymphocytes from systemic lupus erythematosus patients.
