Researchers identified differences in isoforms that control Treg cells and how that affects the body's immune system response.
A new study reports salt could be a possible trigger for inflammation in multiple sclerosis. Researchers report cells in a high salt environment show activation of the beta catenin/Wnt signaling pathway, a pathway previously implicated in disrupting regulatory T cells and triggering inflammation.
A study in Nature Immunology reports on the mechanism that helps to prevent autoimmune diseases from developing following infection. Researchers report a population of immune cells develop during late stages of the immune response to influenza infection.
Researchers explore the interplay between the brain and immune system to find new potential targets for treating Alzheimer's disease.
