A new study identifies a possible genetic mechanism that causes a quicker progression of multiple sclerosis. The absence of Tob1 in CD4+ T cells is key to early onset of a more aggressive form of MS.
Chronic hypoxia can induce an inflammatory response with concomitant demyelination that can lead to future behavioral deficits, a new study reports.
Australian researchers have mapped immune responses from one of the country's first COVID-19 patients. The findings shed light on how the immune system fights the virus and assists in recovery from the virus.
Organ-on-a-chip models reveal how different tissue contribute to inflammatory diseases such as ulcerative colitis.
Astrocytes harbor HIV and spread the virus to CD4+ T cells that traffic the virus out of the brain and into other organs. HIV moves via this route, even when the virus is suppressed with cART.
