According to a Nature study, researchers developed a method to reprogram specific T cells in the immune system. Scientists were able to turn pro-inflammatory cells into anti-inflammatory cells, and vice versa, to boost or suppress the immune system. Researchers believe their findings could have significant impact on developing treatments for autoimmune diseases.
Researchers discover brain like activity in the immune system. The Nature study reveals T cells in the immune system transfer dopamine to B cells, providing motivation for these cells to produce antibodies and battle infection. The researchers hope their findings will help develop treatments to make immune response to vaccines and infections faster, and slow autoimmune conditions.
A new math model has helped researchers to uncover the progression of HIV infection in the brain.
A new study considers whether immune system changes in people with lupus contribute to neuropsychiatric symptoms associated with the disease.
PPCA treatment shown to provide therapeutic benefit in mouse models of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis and multiple sclerosis.
Researchers have discovered a possible trigger for autoimmune diseases such as lupus, Crohn's disease and MS. Findings may explain how women are more susceptible to autoimmune disorders than men.
A new study reports people can show early symptoms of multiple sclerosis up to five years before full onset of the disease.
An experimental treatment can generate immune cells that migrate to the brain and prevent attacks against myelin, allowing mice the ability to regain walking skills.
A groundbreaking new study reveals an unexpected interaction between men's testes and the immune system. Additionally, the findings could help explain the development of certain autoimmune disorders and why some cancer vaccines are ineffective.
A new study reports a three fold risk for people who carry variants of two specific genes in developing multiple sclerosis.
