In order to further confirm our gene expression data on overexpression of IFIG and Th17 pathways, we analysed the presence of IL-17-producing CD4+ T cells and found a significantly (p = 0.0159) increased percentage of these cells in PBMC of patients with NCGS compared with normal subjects (Figure 1).
We also observed that module 11 contained several genes involved in Th-17 cell functions (i.e., IL2RG, IL4R, IL6ST, IL7R, SOCS3, STAT5B, and STAT6) and several IFIG, including IFNA17, STAT1, and STAT2.
IFIGS facilitates and promotes international cooperation between insurance guarantee schemes and other stakeholder organizations with an interest in policyholder protection.
Schmelzer, who served as IFIGS secretary for the past year, will be joined on the IFIGS Management and Support Committees by representatives from Canada, Chinese Taipei, Germany, Greece, Korea, Kenya, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Thailand and the United Kingdom.
He has represented the United States as an IFIGS member of IFIGS since 2012, along with Peter Gallanis, president of the (https://www.nolhga.com/) National Organization of Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Associations (NOLHGA), NCIGF's life and health counterpart.
The IFIGS is made up of 25 full and associate members, 22 of which are Insurance Guarantee Schemes (IGS) from Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.
Schmelzer noted the efforts of the NCIGF and NOLHGA as part of IFIGS have already made a difference, citing recent changes to international regulatory drafts which underscore the primacy of policyholder protection, the importance of pre-insolvency cooperation, collaboration between the guaranty system and regulators as well as clearing up any misconceptions that a guaranty association could spread financial risk.
