Liang Zhao, a postdoctoral fellow, has reported the heterogeneity of peritoneal macrophages and molecular mechanisms regulating their dynamic progression after lesion induction in a mouse model of endometriosis using scRNA-seq. The study further showed that niclosamide finely reversed those transcriptomic changes of macrophages caused by lesion induction through its stepwise regulations on the differentiation of recruited macrophages, the maturation of transitory LPMs, and the preservation of embryo-derived resident LPMs.

Our new cannabis study
Our new cannabis study is available here. The results indicate that cannabis vapor exposure generationally affects male reproductive functions, probably due to disruption of spermatogenesis in the developing testis.
