Type-2 diabetes (T2D) is a chronic condition strongly associated with cardiovascular diseases, mainly recurrent myocardial infarctions (MI), and generating enormous healthcare cost. Macrophages orchestrate the remodelling of the heart post-MI by efferocytosis-mediated cytokine secretion. Specifically, Mertk-mediated efferocytosis promotes vessel formation, tissue reperfusion and resolution of the inflammatory response via the secretion of the anti-inflammatory cytokines interleukin-10 (IL-10) and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor-A (VEGF-A). In IR/T2D, efferocytosis-mediated cytokine secretion is impaired, leading to chronic inflammation, adverse post-MI remodelling, recurrent heart failure and excessive mortality. To date, the signalling and intracellular trafficking pathways leading to cytokines secretion are unknown, and the mechanisms of impairment during IR/T2D are unexplored. Previous therapeutic strategies focussed on repairing damaged tissue by injection of progenitor cells or modulating inflammation by cytokine injection, but both strategies gave disappointing results. In this proposal, I will define the mechanisms of efferocytosis-mediated cytokine secretion in macrophages, investigate their defects in IR/T2D and test a novel cell-based therapeutic strategy for improving recovery of T2D patients post-MI and preventing recurrence of cardiac events by restoring cytokine secretion in diabetic macrophages.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "REMAKIN" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
