Identification of a subpopulation of lymphocytes in human peripheral blood cytotoxic to autologous fibroblasts. (1/1274)

A naturally occurring subpopulation of human peripheral blood lymphocytes is cytotoxic to autologous and/or allogeneic fibroblasts. The autocytotoxic lymphocytes have a receptor for the third component of complement and for aggregated gamma globulin, do not form rosettes with sheep red blood cells, and are not removed by passage through nylon. The autocytotoxic subpopulation is not present in the thymus and tonsils of normal children or in the peripheral blood of individuals with X-linked agammaglobulinemia. Fibroblast absorption experiments demonstrate that the autocytotoxic cells are "sensitized" to antigens expressed on allogeneic fibroblasts in addition to the antigens expressed on autologous cells. Some normal individuals have a second subpopulation of lymphocytes that may "regulate" the autocytotoxic cells. The relevance of these observations to the murine autocytotoxic cells is discussed.  (+info)

Contributory and exacerbating roles of gaseous ammonia and organic dust in the etiology of atrophic rhinitis. (2/1274)

Pigs reared commercially indoors are exposed to air heavily contaminated with particulate and gaseous pollutants. Epidemiological surveys have shown an association between the levels of these pollutants and the severity of lesions associated with the upper respiratory tract disease of swine atrophic rhinitis. This study investigated the role of aerial pollutants in the etiology of atrophic rhinitis induced by Pasteurella multocida. Forty, 1-week-old Large White piglets were weaned and divided into eight groups designated A to H. The groups were housed in Rochester exposure chambers and continuously exposed to the following pollutants: ovalbumin (groups A and B), ammonia (groups C and D), ovalbumin plus ammonia (groups E and F), and unpolluted air (groups G and H). The concentrations of pollutants used were 20 mg m-3 total mass and 5 mg m-3 respirable mass for ovalbumin dust and 50 ppm for ammonia. One week after exposure commenced, the pigs in groups A, C, E, and G were infected with P. multocida type D by intranasal inoculation. After 4 weeks of exposure to pollutants, the pigs were killed and the extent of turbinate atrophy was assessed with a morphometric index (MI). Control pigs kept in clean air and not inoculated with P. multocida (group H) had normal turbinate morphology with a mean MI of 41.12% (standard deviation [SD], +/- 1. 59%). In contrast, exposure to pollutants in the absence of P. multocida (groups B, D, and F) induced mild turbinate atrophy with mean MIs of 49.65% (SD, +/-1.96%), 51.04% (SD, +/-2.06%), and 49.88% (SD, +/-3.51%), respectively. A similar level of atrophy was also evoked by inoculation with P. multocida in the absence of pollutants (group G), giving a mean MI of 50.77% (SD, +/-2.07%). However, when P. multocida inoculation was combined with pollutant exposure (groups A, C, and E) moderate to severe turbinate atrophy occurred with mean MIs of 64.93% (SD, +/-4.64%), 59.18% (SD, +/-2.79%), and 73.30% (SD, +/-3.19%), respectively. The severity of atrophy was greatest in pigs exposed simultaneously to dust and ammonia. At the end of the exposure period, higher numbers of P. multocida bacteria were isolated from the tonsils than from the nasal membrane, per gram of tissue. The severity of turbinate atrophy in inoculated pigs was proportional to the number of P. multocida bacteria isolated from tonsils (r2 = 0.909, P < 0.05) and nasal membrane (r2 = 0.628, P < 0.05). These findings indicate that aerial pollutants contribute to the severity of lesions associated with atrophic rhinitis by facilitating colonization of the pig's upper respiratory tract by P. multocida and also by directly evoking mild atrophy.  (+info)

Human herpesvirus 8 seroprevalence and evaluation of nonsexual transmission routes by detection of DNA in clinical specimens from human immunodeficiency virus-seronegative patients from central and southern Italy, with and without Kaposi's sarcoma. (3/1274)

In order to investigate the seroprevalence of human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) infection in central and southern Italy, sera from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-seronegative subjects, with and without Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), were analyzed by immunofluorescence assay, using BC-3, a cell line latently infected with HHV-8. High titers of antibody against HHV-8 lytic and latent antigens were detected in all 50 KS patients studied, while in 50 HIV-seronegative subjects without KS, 32 (64%) were found positive for HHV-8 antibodies. Titers in the sera of these patients were lower than those for KS patients. This data suggests that HHV-8 infection is not restricted to KS patients and that the prevalence of HHV-8 infection in the general population may be correlated with differing rates of prevalence of KS in different parts of the world. In view of these findings, possible nonsexual transmission routes were evaluated. Nested PCR was used to test for the presence of HHV-8 DNA in saliva, urine, and tonsillar swabs from KS and non-KS patients. In KS patients, 14 out of 32 tonsillar swabs (43.7%), 11 out of 24 saliva samples (45.8%), and just 2 out of 24 urine samples (8.3%) tested positive for HHV-8 DNA. In the control group, on the contrary, none of the 20 saliva and 20 urine specimens was positive for HHV-8 DNA; only 1 out of 22 tonsillar swabs gave a positive result. This data supports the hypothesis that HHV-8 infects the general population in a latent form. The reactivation of viral infection may result in salivary shedding of HHV-8, contributing to viral spread by nonsexual transmission routes.  (+info)

Nonimmunoglobulin gene hypermutation in germinal center B cells. (4/1274)

Somatic hypermutation is the most critical mechanism underlying the diversification of Ig genes. Although mutation occurs specifically in B cells during the germinal center reaction, it remains a matter of debate whether the mutation machinery also targets non-Ig genes. We have studied mutations in the 5' noncoding region of the Bcl6 gene in different subtypes of lymphomas. We found frequent hypermutation in follicular lymphoma (25 of 59 = 42%) (germinal center cell origin) and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma (19 of 45 = 42%) (postgerminal center), but only occasionally in mantle cell lymphoma (1 of 21 = 4.8%) (pregerminal center). Most mutations were outside the motifs potentially important for transcription, suggesting they were not important in lymphomagenesis but may, like Ig mutation, represent an inherent feature of the lymphoma precursor cells. Therefore, we investigated their normal cell counterparts microdissected from a reactive tonsil. Bcl6 mutation was found in 13 of 24 (54%) clones from the germinal centre but only in 1 of 24 (4%) clones from the naive B cells of the mantle zone. The frequency, distribution, and nature of these mutations were similar to those resulting from the Ig hypermutation process. The results show unequivocal evidence of non-Ig gene hypermutation in germinal center B cells and provide fresh insights into the process of hypermutation and lymphomagenesis.  (+info)

Toward a role of dendritic cells in the germinal center reaction: triggering of B cell proliferation and isotype switching. (5/1274)

We have reported previously that in vitro generated dendritic cells (DC) can directly regulate B cell responses. Recently, germinal center DC (GCDC) were identified within B cell follicles. Due to their particular localization, we have tested in the present study whether GCDC could contribute to key events characteristic of the GC reaction. Our present results demonstrate that 1) ex vivo GCDC induce a dramatic GC B cell expansion upon CD40 and IL-2 activation and drive plasma cell differentiation, 2) this property is shared by GCDC and blood DC, but not by Langerhans cells, 3) IL-12 production by GCDC is critical in GC B cell expansion and differentiation, and 4) importantly, GCDC also induce IL-10-independent isotype switching toward IgG1. These observations support the novel concept that GCDC directly contribute to the germinal center reaction.  (+info)

Mucosal dendritic cells and immunodeficiency viruses. (6/1274)

Dendritic cells [DCs] have been implicated in the pathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). When skin was used as a model for mucosae, the cutaneous DC-T cell milieu allowed the growth of HIV-1 and much of the newly produced virus could be detected in multinucleated DC-T cell syncytia. Such virus replication occurs irrespective of the genetic subtype, the syncytium- and non-syncytium-inducing capacities of the viruses, and whether they are classified as T cell- or macrophage-tropic. Similar DC-syncytia have been identified within the mucosal surfaces of the tonsillar tissue of HIV-1-infected persons. More recently, it was demonstrated that DC-T cell mixtures from the skin, mucosae, and blood of healthy macaques similarly support the replication of simian immunodeficiency virus. In both the human and monkey systems, active virus replication requires the presence of both DCs and T cells. Further studies using the macaque model are underway to elucidate the role of DCs in the transmission and spread of HIV infection.  (+info)

Antigen receptor engagement selectively induces macrophage inflammatory protein-1 alpha (MIP-1 alpha) and MIP-1 beta chemokine production in human B cells. (7/1274)

We show herein that B cell Ag receptor (BCR) triggering, but not stimulation by CD40 mAb and/or IL-4, rapidly induced the coordinated expression of two closely related T cell chemoattractants, macrophage inflammatory protein-1 beta (MIP-1 beta) and MIP-1 alpha, by human B cells. Naive, memory, and germinal center B cells all produced MIP-1 alpha/beta in response to BCR triggering. In contrast to MIP-1 alpha/beta, IL-8, which is spontaneously produced by germinal center B cells but not by naive and memory B cells, was not regulated by BCR triggering. Culturing follicular dendritic cell-like HK cells with activated B cells did not regulate MIP-1 alpha/beta production, but it did induce production of IL-8 by HK cells. Microchemotaxis assays showed that CD4+CD45RO+ T cells of the effector/helper phenotype actively migrated along a chemotactic gradient formed by BCR-stimulated B cells. This effect was partially blocked by anti-MIP-1 beta and anti-CC chemokine receptor 5 Ab, but not by anti-MIP-1 alpha Ab suggesting that MIP-1 beta plays a major role in this chemoattraction. Since maturation of the B cell response to a peptide Ag is mostly dependent on the availability of T cell help, the ability of Ag-stimulated B cells to recruit T cells via MIP-1 alpha/beta, may represent one possible mechanism enabling cognate interactions between rare in vivo Ag-specific T and B cells.  (+info)

Age-dependent altered proportions in subpopulations of tonsillar lymphocytes. (8/1274)

Age-related changes in functional subsets of lymphocytes may influence the potential to build up immune responses. In particular, the capacity of tonsillar lymphocytes to counter infections may be altered during ageing. In order to address this question we investigated the proportional distribution of several subsets of tonsillar T and B cells with regard to ageing. Tonsils were derived from 119 patients between 2 and 65 years of age. Lymphocyte subsets were monitored by three-colour fluorescence of relevant CD markers in flow cytometry. As a general tendency the percentage of CD3+ T cells steadily increased whereas that of CD19+ B cells decreased at the same time. No significant differences were observed between lymphocytes of patients with and without inflammatory history of the tonsils. The percentage of CD8+ T cells declined whereas that of CD4+ T cells increased during the same time span. CD45RA+ T cells increased during the first two decades of life and gradually decreased thereafter. In contrast, CD45RO+ T cells showed an opposite trend. No differences were seen in the population of CD3-/CD56+ natural killer (NK) cells. The mature B cell marker CD40 showed no significant changes during ageing. However, CD38+ B cells, representing B cells of late maturation stages, dramatically declined up to the age of 65. In a similar manner the CD5+ subpopulation of B cells decreased during ageing. Substantial changes in major tonsillar T and B cell populations as shown in this study may have an impact on the ageing process of the immune system.  (+info)

The palatine tonsils are constantly exposed to ingested or inhaled antigens which, in turn, lead to a permanent activation of tonsillar immune cells, even in a basic physiological state. The aim of the present study was to investigate if the immunological activation of the human palatine tonsil is reflected by a high metabolic activity, as determined by in vivo measurement of protein synthesis. The protein synthesis rate of the tonsil was also compared with that of the circulating T-lymphocytes, the total blood mononuclear cells and the whole population of blood leucocytes. Phenotypic characterization of immune-competent cells in tonsil tissue and blood was performed by flow cytometry. Pinch tonsil biopsies were taken after induction of anaesthesia in healthy adult patients (n=12) scheduled for ear surgery, uvulopalatopharyngoplasty or nose surgery. Protein synthesis was quantitatively determined during a 90-min period by a flooding-dose technique. The in vivo protein synthesis rate in the ...
Palatine tonsils, commonly called the tonsils and occasionally called the faucial tonsils, are tonsils located on the left and right sides at the back of the throat, which can often be seen as flesh-colored, pinkish lumps. Tonsils only present as white lumps if they are inflamed or infected with symptoms of exudates (pus drainage) and severe swelling. Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils and will often, but not necessarily, cause a sore throat and fever. In chronic cases tonsillectomy may be indicated. The palatine tonsils are located in the isthmus of the fauces, between the palatoglossal arch and the palatopharyngeal arch of the soft palate. The palatine tonsil is one of the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissues (MALT), located at the entrance to the upper respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts to protect the body from the entry of exogenous material through mucosal sites. In consequence it is a site of, and potential focus for, infections, and is one of the chief immunocompetent ...
This report presented the very rare case of a patient with a metastasis in the left palatine tonsil from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). A 69-year-old man suffered from an about 20-mm mass in the left palatine tonsil. The biopsy revealed that the mass in the palatine tonsil was a metastatic lesion from HCC. The patient underwent a left palatine tonsillectomy, and metastasis from HCC has not recurred after the operation. With the presentation of the present case, we looked through the so-far reported literature ...
Palatine tonsils, occasionally called the faucial tonsils, are small mass of lymphoid tissue between the pillars of the fauces on either side of the pharynx. Tonsillitis is an inflammation of the tonsils and will often, but not necessarily, cause a sore throat and fever. In chronic cases tonsillectomy may be indicated. Tonsillar (relating to palatine tonsil) B cells can mature to produce all the five major Immunoglobulin (Ig, aka antibody) classes. Furthermore, when incubated in vitro with either mitogens or specific antigens, they produce specific antibodies against diphtheria toxoid, poliovirus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Staphylococcus aureus, and the lipopolysaccharide of E. coli. Most Immunoglobulin A produced by tonsillar B cells in vitro appears to be 7S monomers, although a significant proportion may be l0S dimeric IgA. In addition to humoral immunity elicited by tonsillar and adenoidal B cells following antigenic stimulation, there is considerable T-cell response ...
The crypt epithelium of the palatine tonsils, which is the first barrier between external environment and lymphoid tissue, was investigated in 6-month-old healthy market weight pigs and in 3 week-old piglets experimentally infected with Streptococcus suis serotype 2. This pathogen enters via and persists in the palatine tonsils, and the pathogenesis of this infection is still unclear.. First, the subpopulations of intra-epithelial leukocytes were characterized and quantified using immunohistochemistry and monoclonal antibodies to porcine lymphocyte markers. Different lymphocyte subpopulations, namely CD4, CD8, and γδ T lymphocytes, and B lymphocytes, were identified. Next, the alterations in the intra-epithelial leukocyte subpopulations in response to experimental infection with S. suis were described. Myeloid cells, CD4 and CD8 T lymphocytes, and B lymphocytes were increased in the first 72h post-infection.. The transport of S. suis serotype 2 across the crypt epithelium was investigated by ...
Definition of palatine tonsil, with etymology, pronunciation (phonetic and audio), synonyms, antonyms, derived terms and more about the word palatine tonsil.
The palatine tonsils can become enlarged (adenotonsillar hyperplasia) or inflamed (tonsillitis). The most common way to treat tonsillitis is with anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, or if bacterial in origin, antibiotics, e.g. amoxicillin and azithromycin. Surgical removal (tonsillectomy) may be advised if the tonsils obstruct the airway or interfere with swallowing, or in patients with severe or recurrent tonsillitis.[8][9] However, different mechanisms of pathogenesis for these two subtypes of tonsillar hypertrophy have been described,[10] and may have different responses to identical therapeutic efforts. In older patients, asymmetric tonsils (also known as asymmetric tonsil hypertrophy) may be an indicator of virally infected tonsils, or tumors such as lymphoma or squamous cell carcinoma. A tonsillolith (also known as a tonsil stone) is material that accumulates on the palatine tonsil. This can reach the size of a peppercorn and is white or cream in color. The main substance is ...
Using fluorescein-labelled antibodies against γ, μ and α chains, Ig-containing cells* in palatine tonsils were studied in 120 patients. The aim of this study was to determine the most frequently repeated typical findings as regards the numbers and localisation of these cells in tonsils and to confront the data obtained with the concept that tonsils are a component of the local immunity system. The preponderance of IgG over IgA cells was confirmed, both cell types being preferentially localized in extrafollicular tissue whereas IgM was mostly found in germinal centres. Together with progressing tonsillar atrophia, the frequency of positive findings of IgM decreased, whereas the numbers of IgG and IgA cells were proportional to the amount of remaining lymphoid tissue. IgA cells were not preponderant in tonsils and their localization in the surface layer of epithelium was rather exceptional, SC antigen could not be demonstrated unequivocally and the morphological picture in germinal centres was

Recent research at VLA has shown that palatine tonsilar tissue derived from cattle experimentally challenged with BSE contained low levels of infectivity in animals killed 10 months post inoculation. In the UK, under current legislation, the heads of bovines, where the palatine tonsil is located, are classified as Specified Risk Material (SRM) and destroyed. However, the tongue is removed from the head and allowed to enter into the human food chain. This project will investigate the distribution of tonsil tissue in the tongue of normal bovines, i.e. an anatomical study, and determine the extent of inclusion of tonsil tissue in the tongue as removed for human consumption using different practices, i.e. a study of industry practices.

WEDNESDAY, Feb. 7, 2018 (HealthDay News) - The prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) and of high-risk HPV type 16 or 18 is 4.9 and 3.9 percent, respectively, in the tonsil tissue of healthy adults, according to a study published online Jan. 25 in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.. Katherine K.S. Rieth, M.D., from the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York, and colleagues conducted a retrospective cross-sectional study using samples obtained from tonsils that were archived following elective nononcologic tonsillectomy from 2012 to 2015. Formalin-fixed paraffin embedded samples of tumor-free tonsil tissue from 102 adults aged 20 to 39 years were included.. The researchers found that the overall prevalence of HPV was 4.9 percent and of high-risk type 16 or 18 HPV was 3.9 percent in tonsils from 102 otherwise healthy adults. In situ hybridization colocalized HPV virus to the biofilm of the tonsillar crypts in this sample population.. Biofilm is present in the tonsillar crypts ...
We previously showed that, in addition to human glial cells, JCV could infect tonsillar lymphocytes and stromal cells in vitro (29). The anatomical location of tonsils and the susceptibility of lymphocytes and stromal cells, both of which are present in tonsils, to JCV infection make it plausible that JCV infection can occur via a respiratory route. We used n-PCR amplification to determine whether DNA from nondissected tonsillar tissue, isolated tonsillar lymphocytes, and isolated stromal cells of healthy individuals contained JCV-specific nucleotide sequences. Of 54 tonsils from immunocompetent children and adult donors, 19 (35%) were positive for the JCV T-protein sequences and 21 (39%) were positive for the regulatory-region sequences. We also showed by n-PCR amplification that DNA of isolated tonsillar lymphocytes and stromal cells contained JCV-specific T-protein and regulatory-region sequences (Table 1). The lower percentage of n-PCR products found in tonsillar stromal cells could be ...

Tonsils are part of our immune system and consist of large, partly encapsulated aggregations of lymphoid tissue. The tonsils are located in the epipharynx and mesopharynx, in close connection with the entrance to the respiratory and gastrointestinal systems, enabling the reception of pathogens from the air that we breathe. The pharyngeal, tubular, palatine and lingual tonsils encircle the oral and nasal cavity and are referred to as the tonsillar ring, or Waldeyer ring. The tonsils are covered by a stratified squamous epithelium. The squamous epithelium forms deep irregular invaginations into the tonsils. Underlying the epithelium numerous lymph follicles are present. Lymph follicles are spherical aggregations of lymphocytes. Primary lymph follicles appear as a homogeneous aggregations of darkly stained small lymphocytes. Secondary lymph follicles have a lighter germinal center, representing proliferating B-cells. A typical feature of tonsils is the presence of lymphocytes that infiltrate into ...

Results: Streptococcal infections were more frequent among psoriasis patients, in particular infections by group C streptococci. No difference was observed in the expression of antimicrobial peptide LL-37. However, we observed that LL-37 had a number of immunomodulatory effects and that its expression within the tonsils was restricted to infiltrated leukocytes and GC-DCs. Tonsil T cells from psoriasis tonsils had a higher expression of the skin-homing molecule cutaneous lymphocyte-associated antigen (CLA) and their frequency in tonsil correlated with their levels in blood. Furthermore, these cells expressed various Th1/Th17-associated molecules. These skin-homing T cells responded to the keratin/streptococcal peptides in a Th1/Th17 manner. Finally, a clear histological difference was observed between the tonsils of psoriatic and non-psoriatic individuals. Conclusion: It can be concluded that palatine tonsils are important for the pathogenesis of psoriasis in a subset of patients and that the ...
Cytokines are humoral immunomodulatory proteins or glycoproteins which control or modulate the activities of target cells, resulting in gene activation, leading to mitotic division, growth and differentiation, migration, or apoptosis. They are produced by wide range of cell types upon antigen-specific and non-antigen specific stimuli. It has been reported by many studies that the clinic outcome of many infectious, autoimmune, or malignant diseases appears to be influenced by the overall balance of production (profiles) of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. Therefore, determination of cytokine profiles in tonsil study will provide key information for further in-depth analysis of the cause and underlying mechanisms of these disorders, as well as the role and possible interactions between the T- and B-lymphocytes and other immunocompetent cells.[4]. The cytokine network represents a very sophisticated and versatile regulatory system that is essential to the immune system for ...
Removal of tonsils - Removal of tonsil stones from vallecula? Not from vallecula. The vallecula is a gutter between the epiglottis and base of tongue that is covered with the lingual tonsils. The palatine tonsils sit just lateral to, the vallecula. Tonsil stones are usually from actinomyces bacteria from the mouth that get into crypts in the tonsils and could spill into the vallecula. Normal swallowing should be able to clear the vallecula.

Tonsillitis is an infection and swelling of the tonsils which are oval-shaped lymph nodes located in the back of the mouth and the upper part of the throat. Our body has two sets of tonsils. One pair can be seen at the back of the throat. These are called the palatine or faucial tonsils. The other pair is at the back of the tongue and is called lingual tonsils. Also part of the same group of lymph nodes are the adenoids, which are situated behind the nose, and above the throat. Their main function is to filter out bacteria and other microorganisms. Tonsillitis commonly means the inflammation or infection of the palatine tonsils. However, sometimes the infection can involve the lingual tonsils and other lymph nodes in the back of the throat, especially the adenoids. The infection may also be present in the throat and surrounding areas, causing pharyngitis (infection of the pharynx ...

We describe the case of an Italian, Caucasian nine-year-old girl, suffering from a unilateral tonsillar swelling. Histopathological and immune-histoch..
Tonsils produce antibodies that neutralize respiratory infections (e.g. pneumonia, bronchitis, ear infections, laryngitis, sinusitis and rhinitis) that enter through the throat, mouth or nose. Antibodies (or immunoglobulins) are proteins that are found in the blood and other bodily fluids. They are produced by various components of the bodys immune system and provide protection against chemicals, viruses, parasites, fungi and bacteria. According to an article published by the Immunology Program, Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, tonsillar B cells (a type of palatine tonsil cells) mature to produce five classes of antibodies. They produce specific antibodies against staphylococcus aureus, haemophilus influenzae, streptococcus pneumoniae, poliovirus and diptheria toxoid. ...
Role of fatty acids in Tonsillar Disorders Diagnosis, 978-3-659-66497-7, The palatine tonsils are lymphoepithelial tissues that are strategically located at the entrance of the upper aerodigestive tract for immune protection against ingested and inhaled foreign pathogens as a police man of the throat. Enlargement and infectious diseases of tonsils are accounted for most of the childrens illnesses. Surgical removal of the tonsils is the treatment of choice, being of the procedure more commonly performed. On the other hand, fatty acids and secretory phospholipase A2 play major part in growth regulation, differentiation and inflammation. Based on the findings of this study, serum sPLA2 activity and tonsillar fatty acid composition were various in tonsillar diseases. Then, they have an important biochemical role in tonsillar disorders and may be considered as supportive diagnostic markers to differentiation of them.

While most people are aware that they have tonsils, the details often get fuzzy from there. Some people even confuse the tonsils with the uvula, the loose skin flap hanging down near the back of the throat.. The tonsils are part of the bodys disease defense system, the lymphatic system. The tonsils job is to stop toxins, viral germs, fungi and bacteria before they can travel down the throat and reach the major organs.. Because of this important job, the tonsils include a system of grooves, crypts and crevices designed to trap unwelcome matter so it can be broken down by the white blood cells and flushed after being rendered harmless.. However, in some people, the grooves, crypts and crevices are deeper and more prone to hoarding this matter too far inside the tonsils for them to be flushed out normally with the saliva.. When this occurs, tonsil stones, or tonsil calculi, can form and grow larger. The larger they grow, the more they get stuck inside the tonsils. For this reason, using a water ...
We have studied the effects of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) on the growth and differentiation of human tonsillar B lymphocytes cultured in the CD40 system with or without IL-4 or IL-10. PGE2 (10(-9) to 10(-6) M) enhanced proliferation of B cells activated through their CD40 Ag, but not their Ig secretion. PGE2 further potentiated both IL-4- and IL-10-induced B cell growth as determined by [3H]TdR uptake and cellular enumeration. The IL-10-induced IgM, IgG, and IgA secretion was enhanced twofold to fourfold after addition of PGE2, whereas IL-4-induced IgG and IgE secretion was inhibited. The IgE production was particularly sensitive as an approximately 90% inhibition was obtained for 10(-7) M PGE2. In addition, PGE2 inhibited IgE production by naive surface IgD+ B cells cultured in the CD40 system, suggesting that PGE2 may interact with mechanisms involved in IgE switching. PGE2 displayed similar effects on cytokine-induced proliferation and Ig secretion of B cells activated by anti-CD40 Abs used in a ...

from - https://draxe.com/tonsillitis/ ). As you can see your tonsils are actually quite important. Even though you can live without them, they serve a vital role in your overall health.. For those who have frequent throat infections, the answer may not be removing the tonsils, but focusing on improving the immune system. The tonsils can keep the infections from going to other parts of the body. Without your tonsils, you may still get infections, but theyll show up in other places in the body. When dealing with frequent infections, remember that many time when the tonsils are infected, its actually from a virus, not a bacteria. So its important to confirm the presence of a bacterial infection if antibiotics are prescribed as a treatment. There are many natural remedies that can help fight throat infections. Various herbs, essential oils and supplements can help, for example: slippery elm and licorice root herbs, lemon and frankincense essential oils along with others, and vitamin C, garlic, ...

What are tonsils? Tonsils are soft tissue located at the back of your throat; they are part of the bodys lymphatic system (so are adenoids). When they are working properly, they help to recognise bacteria and viruses entering through the mouth and produce white blood cells to fight off infection. Tonsils are particularly useful during childhood while…
HIV-1 Nef critically contributes to AIDS in part by augmenting virus titers in infected individuals. Analyzing which of Nefs activities contribute to HIV pathogenesis has been hampered by the lack of a cell culture model in which Nef exerts pronounced effects on HIV replication. The human lymphoid aggregate culture (HLAC) from tonsil maintains the cell populations and cytokine milieu found in vivo, supports a productive infection without exogenous stimulation, and Nef contributes to efficient HIV-1 replication as well as CD4+ T cell depletion in this experimental ex vivo-model. To identify determinants in Nef that mediate these activities, we infected HLAC with a panel of isogenic HIV-1NL4-3 strains that encode for well-characterized mutants of HIV-1SF2 Nef. Determination of HIV-1 replication revealed that enhancement of the virus spread by Nef is governed by a complex set of protein interaction surfaces. In contrast, increased CD4+ T lymphocyte depletion depended on only two protein interaction

The fall-winter period with its significant weather changes provokes many of us at least once to fall ill with running nose, tonsillitis, bronchitis or ARVI. This happens because this change of seasons in a way challenges the body defenses: will the body manage to quickly and efficiently rearrange itself and adapt to adverse environment? And it is the effective adaptability of the organism that determines whether the person will take to bed with cold-related diseases or not.. In order to answer this question we shall get a view of one particular feature of the human pharynx and larynx.. The naso- and oropharynx area comes as a kind of the body gateway where the incoming air and food are subject to intensive processing. It is here that the so called «lymph gate» - the clusters of lymphoid tissue that form a ring around the perimeter of this zone - is located. The said entities are known to us: they are the palatine tonsils, or the glands, the tubal, the pharyngeal tonsils (their enlargement in ...

The lingual tonsils (tonsilla lingualis) are a pair of oval-shaped organs located at the back of the tongue behind the foramen cecum and the sulcus terminalis in the mucous membrane covering the tongue. They enlarge gradually from birth to about seven years of age and then shrinks. Each oval consists of a large number of lymphoid follicles. The lingual tonsils are part of the lymphatic system and are important to the bodys defense against infection. They are composed of lymphoid tissue, which contains germ-killing cells. The tonsils help protect against upper respiratory tract infection. ...

Complete article is available online.. PDF version is available online.. A novel biopsy technique for harvesting tonsillar tissue from unanaesthetized swine was developed, using conventional restraint and a mouth speculum. After application of a local analgesic, a disposable dermal biopsy punch was used to collect the tissue. The technique was applied to a total of 112 swine from three herds, with animals ranging in weight from 10 to 225 kg. Sixty-one days later, a second sample was collected from 19 of the pigs. All 131 samples were prepared for histopathology in neutral buffered formalin and were sectioned and stained using routine methods at a commercial diagnostic laboratory. All biopsies were examined histologically for the presence of tonsillar (lymphoid) tissue.. Of the 131 samples examined, 129 (98.5%) contained tonsillar tissue. The two samples that did not contain tonsillar tissue contained salivary gland tissue and were from small pigs (11 and 19.5 kg). This technique is a reliable ...
The tissue localization of cells containing 11 S external secretory IgA was investigated using rhodamine- or fluorescein-labeled antisera specific either for the heavy polypeptide chain of 7 S serum IgA (anti-IgA) or for the characteristic extra-antigenic determinants of 11 S secretory IgA (anti-Piece). Both anti-Piece and anti-IgA caused fluorescence of: 1) cells at the periphery of lymphoid follicles and lining the crypts of the pharyngeal and palatine tonsils, and 2) scattered interstitial and serous acinar cells of the compound alveolar glands in the nasal submucosa and in the submaxillary and parotid salivary glands. Anti-IgA alone stained occasional cells in the lymphoid follicles of spleen and of lymph nodes taken from the lung, submandibular tissue and periaortic chain. Anti-Piece stained none of the latter tissues, and neither anti-Piece nor anti-IgA caused fluorescence of liver, pancreas or pulmonary alveolar cells.. When anti-IgA and anti-Piece, one labeled with fluorescein and the ...

Chronic tonsillitis (CT) and tonsillar hypertrophy (TH) are common tonsillar diseases that are related to infection and inflammation. Little is known about tonsillar microbiota and its role in CT and TH. This study aims to identify palatine tonsillar microbiota both on the surface and in the core tissues of CT and TH patients. In total, 22 palatine tonsils were removed and collected from CT and TH patients who underwent surgery. The surface and core microbiota in the tonsils of CT and TH patients were compared using 16S rRNA gene sequencing of V3-V4 regions. Differential tonsillar microbiotas were found in the CT versus TH patients and surface versus core tissues. Further, a higher relative abundance of bacterial genera, including Haemophilus, Streptococcus, Neisseria, Capnocytophaga, Kingella, Moraxella, and Lachnospiraceae [G-2] in patients with TH and Dialister, Parvimonas, Bacteroidales [G-2], Aggregatibacter, and Atopobium in patients with CT, was observed.

Acute and chronic tonsillitises are one of the most commonly spread infection diseases [1, 3, 9]. Among adults a disturbance of palatine tonsils is typical, while for children adenoititis - an inflammation of throat tonsil is more common. Chronic diseases of ENT organs can be considered as a particular display of an immunodeficiency that is dependent by a defect in mononuclear phagocytosis system [1, 5]. The main bacterial tonsillitis stimulant is considered β - haemolytic streptococcus of group A, presesnce of which is registered among 31 % of patients [10]. Among other possible stimulants mentioned are streptococcuses of other groups, aurococcus, enterobacterias, haemophilus influenza [2, 6, 8, 9]. In human organism to a penetration of an microorganism from the environment first of all reacts its immune system, particularly phagocytosises and then antimicrobal antibodies are produced [5].

Abstract - Objective: The purpose of this paper is to describe the extent of the public health problem presented by palatine tonsillar cancer in the United States by analyzing recent incidence and mortality rate trends.. Methods: Using the National Cancer Institutes Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program database, age-adjusted incidence rates (1973-2001) for five histological types of palatine tonsillar cancer by race and sex were calculated. For total palatine tonsillar cancer age-specific incidence (1973-2001) and mortality (1969-2001) rates by race and sex were calculated. Mortality and population data were obtained from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and the U.S. Census Bureau. The Joinpoint Regression Model was employed to establish the statistical significance of incidence and mortality rate trends.. Results: The majority of palatine tonsillar cases diagnosed in SEER-9 registries from 1973 to 2001 occurred among white males, age 40-64 years, with ...

We have used high-throughput small RNA sequencing to characterize viral small RNA expression in purified tonsillar B and T lymphocytes isolated from patients tested positive for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) or human adenovirus (HAdV) infections, respectively. In the small set of patients analyzed, the expression profile of EBV and HAdV miRNAs could not distinguish between patients diagnosed with tonsillar hypertrophy or chronic/recurrent tonsillitis. The EBV miR-BART expression profile among the patients diagnosed with tonsillar diseases resembles most closely the pattern seen in EBV+ tumors (Latency II/I). The miR-BARTs that appear to be absent in normal EBV infected cells are essentially all detectable in the diseased tonsillar B lymphocytes. In the EBV+ B cells we detected 44 EBV miR-BARTs derived from the proposed BART precursor hairpins whereof five are not annotated in miRBase v21. One previously undetected miRNA, BART16b-5p, originates from the miR-BART16 precursor hairpin as an alternative 5´ miR

Tonsils are one of the most significant organs in our body that helps in filtering out germs that enter the body. If the tonsils get infected by bacteria or viruses, they become swollen and swallowing can be really difficult. Most common causes of inflamed tonsil are bacterial and viral infection.. Tonsillitis, the more technical term for inflamed tonsils, can be really hard especially for infants and children. Hence, it is important to get medical help once the inflammation becomes uncontrollable. Depending on the severity, treatment for tonsillitis can range from home remedies to surgery for the most severe case. However, for mild to moderate discomforts of tonsillitis, the following can help you deal with this matter ...
Several years ago, operations to remove tonsils and adenoids were very common. These operations are done less commonly these days and the main indications for them being advised are discussed above. As with all operations, there is a risk involved with surgery.. For example, possible complications of surgery include infection, severe bleeding from the sites where the tonsils or adenoids were removed, and anaesthetic reactions. Also, after adenoids are removed, there is a small risk that speech may become nasal. That is, a child may sound as if they are speaking through their nose. This is because after the adenoids are removed, the gap between the back part of the nose cavity and the roof of the mouth may not close properly, as it should do when we talk. If this occurs, it may only be temporary. However, in a small number of cases speech therapy is needed, or even an operation to narrow the gap.. The amount of benefit gained from having tonsils and/or adenoids removed is not clear. It is a ...

About Tonsil Cancer Tonsil Cancer Head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC) is the sixth most common malignancy worldwide and there are 40,000 new cases per year. Oropharyngeal carcinomas of the primary HNSCC are the third most common and the most common site of malignancy in the tonsil oropharynx. What are the symptoms of tonsil cancer? In patients with tonsil cancer, the disease may manifest itself only by neck mass. The reason for this is that cancer can occur in the depths of the pit cavities called crypts in the tonsil structure, and the deep epithelial invasions of the surface epithelium make it jump to the neck lymph nodes without creating a marked mass formation in the mouth. Symptoms of Tonsil Cancer Squamous cell tonsil cancers can occur in 1 or more sites in the deep areas of the tonsils. In addition, the patient can swell significantly into the oral cavity without any symptoms. Tonsils are lymphoid tissues and have rich lymphatic veins. It contains abunda ...

Staphylococcus aureus and Group A Streptococcus (GAS) are common occupants of the tonsils and many strains produce potent exotoxins (mitogens) that directly target T cells, which could be a driver for tonsillar hyperplasia. Tonsil tissues from 41 patients were tested for these bacteria in conjunction with profiling of B and T cells by flow cytometry. S. aureus and GAS were detected in tonsil tissue from 44% and 7%, respectively, of patients by bacteriological culture; immuno-histology showed bacteria in close proximity to both B and T lymphocytes. The presence of tonsillar S. aureus did not alter B or T cell populations, whereas peripheral blood mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells were significantly increased in S. aureus culture positive individuals (p , 0.006). Alterations of tonsil CD4+ TCR Vβ family members relative to peripheral blood were evident in 29 patients. Three patients had strong TCR Vβ skewing indicative of recent exposure to superantigens, their tonsils contained ...
Tonsils are glands that are situated at the back of the mouth, behind the tongue, on both sides. Tonsils are visible when we open the mouth wide. Adenoids are situated behind the soft palate (the muscular portion of the roof of the mouth located at the back). Adenoids are hidden by the soft palate and are not visible. The tonsils and adenoids are part of the lymphatic or immune system of the body, which helps the body to fight various infections and diseases.. They are most active during childhood, as children unknowingly put dirty objects or fingers into the mouth, which carries a host of bacteria and germs. Though, these glands are not able to destroy all the germs, they do guard against a host of bacteria. In doing so, they themselves get infected and hence cause cough, cold and/or sore throat. At times when these glands get severely infected, they become a problem themselves rather than protective organs. In fact, as a child grows and becomes immune to certain diseases, the utility of these ...
Interesting research regarding the presence of bacteria in the bloodstream during tonsillectomy, both elective and quinsy.

We often assume that throat pain is like strep throat, which is not. A sore throat is usually caused by viral infections in the throat area and is associated with coughing, hoarseness, runny nose and red eyes. In the case of inflammation of the throat, the constant irritation of the pharynx is observed along with a sore throat, swollen tonsils, enlarged lymph nodes, white spots on the throat and fever. Tonsils are lymphatic tissue masses on either side of the oral pharynx. They help fight infections originating in the mouth and nose. However, the tonsils themselves can become infected and inflamed, a condition known as tonsillitis ...
Ive mentioned before that Ive seen both an ENT and a GP about my tonsils. Over a year ago, I noticed that I was having some throat irritation and wondered if it was red/inflamed. When I shined a flashlight back there, I noticed that my tonsils were full of holes and debris had collected to form tonsil stones. They looked very similar to what my moms tonsils looked like before she had them removed. I have a very sensitive gag reflex, so I was never able to remove the stones. My former GP prescribed Zithromax but she, herself, said it probably wouldnt work. I took it, albeit reluctantly, and it did not help at all. I read several websites stating that carbonation could help, so I decided to try sparkling water and, sure enough, that dissolved the stones to such an extent that my tonsils were pretty much cleaned out. Ive been drinking carbonated drinks on a regular basis to keep stuff from accumulating in there. I still have a chronic cough, however ...
Can you get strep throat from being stressed? It caused by a layer of bacteria and debris on the top of the tongue due to dehydration or sickness (when you dont want to eat or talk). As their location is at the throat, any germs and harmful agents which enter the mouth and nose will have to encounter these two guards first. Strep throat is a contagious infection that causes pain and other symptoms of the throat and tonsils. Each tonsil is covered with pink mucosa and pits (or crypts), which run along the mucosa. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Not many people know that there are several complications in these small tissues, such as tonsillitis, abscess, tonsil stones, and enlarged tonsils. The agar under and around the colonies becomes transparent and light in color. This group is the main reason for strep throat.

I went to the doctor last Monday after school because, yet again, my tonsils were extremely swollen and covered in white junk. I had tonsillitis literally 2 weeks ago, and Tuesday I got a phone call from my doctor saying I had strep throat.. My doctor suggested that I get my tonsils out, seeing as Im always sick and my tonsils are giant monsters all the time. I also have these weird cave-like things in my tonsils called tonsil crypts, that produce tonsil stones. I know, gross. I read about it and I guess its a fairly common problem. People that have this issue usually get their tonsils out, so I knew it was inevitable.. If I do get them out, it will be my 4th surgery. I had eye surgery when I was a baby, my appendix out in 2011, my gallbladder out in 2011, and my wisdom teeth out in 2012. Sometimes I wonder if Im really 80 years old with all my health problems.. Although Ive already had so many surgeries, a tonsillectomy really scares me. Ive heard that it takes a while to recover from, and ...
(503) 581-1567 | The tonsils are two lymph nodes located on either side of the back of your throat. They are part of your bodys defense mechanism against infection, but sometimes can be susceptible to infection themselves. Another tonsil-related ailment is tonsil stones. One study published in ISRN Dentistry found that tonsil stones…
The tonsils are two clusters of tissue located on both sides of the back of the throat. Adenoids sit high in the throat behind the nose and the roof of the mouth. Tonsils and adenoids are often removed when they become enlarged and block the upper airway, leading to breathing difficulty. They are also removed when recurrence of tonsil infections or strep throat cannot be

The function of the tonsils is to help identify and fight infections caused by viruses or bacteria. They can cause problems if they are enlarged or become infected. If the enlarged tonsils are causing problems with sleep, your ENT surgeon (otolaryngologist) may recommend a tonsillectomy.
Hi there. I have a 3 year old son who for the past 2 years or so has had unusually large tonsils. I have seen and read several cases where this is considered normal for children his age, but Im a little concerned. I took him in to see his pediatrician just before he turned 2 and she referred me to an Ear, Nose, & Throat specialist. For the past year and a half weve been monitoring the growth of my sons tonsils. At first when the ENT saw my son he was surprised to see how large my sons tonsils were, but he wanted to wait and see if my son would grow into them. I thought this was a little strange, but at the same time, my son never complains about his throat hurting. Well, a year later my sons tonsils have not shrunk, in fact they are larger and touch and his adenoids are just as bad. Hes been scheduled to have a T & A in mid-June. Also about a month ago I noticed that his lymph nodes on the sides of his neck just below his jaw were swollen. Several friends and family members have ...

If your dog is coughing, has difficulty swallowing and seems to be hungry but wont eat, he may have something more serious than a sore throat. If his tonsils are inflamed, he could have tonsillitis.. This condition is more common in small dogs, according to the Merck Veterinary Manual, as well as short-nosed (brachycephalic) dogs.. When humans get a sore throat it can just be an isolated infection, but its not so simple for dogs.. Webmd writes, Most sore throats are associated with infections in the mouth, sinuses or respiratory tract. They can also occur with systemic diseases such as parvovirus, distemper, herpes virus and pseudorabies [a virus that mainly affects pigs]. Dogs with an anal gland infection may also have a sore throat from spreading the infection while licking at their glands.. You probably wont even notice your dogs tonsils unless theyre inflamed. This generally occurs as a secondary symptom of a sore throat, notes pets.webmd.com.. Here are the symptoms to watch for and ...
Tonsillitis is the inflammation of the tonsils - a set of lymphoid organs in the throat that play an important role in the immune system. The tonsils are the
A similar situation was noted in lingual tonsil, which consists of many lymphoid nodules, each connected to the pharynx by an invaginating crypt. The number of infected cells varied from one tonsil nodule to another, but most nodules were infected, and infected cells were numerous especially in p55-negative regions of the ELT (Fig. 4D). In the lingual tonsil at day 7, 74% of infected cells were in ELT, 6% in LE, and 20% in GCs.. We expected that productive infection with SIV would begin in stratified squamous epithelium that constitutes the external covering of the tonsil (Fig. 4B), tongue (Fig. 4D), and buccal cavity (21). This epithelium is comparable to the surface of the vagina and anus, and is rich in DCs that can capture and transport immunodeficiency viruses (13-17). When we infected the monkeys, we applied SIV directly to the tonsillar squamous epithelium. Breaks in this epithelium also could have provided a conduit for SIV to access susceptible lymphocytes. However, infected cells were ...

The cells of cementum are the entrapped cementoblasts, the cementocytes. Each cementocyte lies in its lacuna, similar to the pattern noted in bone. These lacunae also have canaliculi or canals. Unlike those in bone, however, these canals in cementum do not contain nerves, nor do they radiate outward. Instead, the canals are oriented toward the periodontal ligament and contain cementocytic processes that exist to diffuse nutrients from the ligament because it is vascularized. After the apposition of cementum in layers, the cementoblasts that do not become entrapped in cementum line up along the cemental surface along the length of the outer covering of the periodontal ligament. These cementoblasts can form subsequent layers of cementum if the tooth is injured. Sharpey fibers are part of the principal collagenous fibers of the periodontal ligament embedded in the cementum and alveolar bone to attach the tooth to the alveolus.[2] ...
