MRC1+ macrophages are dysfunctional in animal models of neuropathic pain. Stimulating the expression of the anti-inflammatory protein CD163 reduced signs of neuroinflammation in the spinal cords of mice with neuropathic pain.
A new study tracks, in real time, how Cryptococcal meningitis invades the brain.
The 'shock and kill' therapeutic strategy for treating HIV could potentially cause harmful neuroinflammation, a new study reveals.
A new study reports some people with schizophrenia have increased numbers of immune cells in their brains. Researchers say the immune cells may be producing inflammatory signals in those with the condition.
Researchers investigate whether they can mobilize the immune system to help in the fight against Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers report disruption of the BBB can trigger a cascade of events that result in brain damage and autoimmunity characteristic of MS.
Researchers attempt to identify which macrophage receptors promote neural repair and which are directed to the destructive process following spinal cord injury.
Studying what the LRRK2 gene does in macrophages infected with the bacterium that causes tuberculosis, researchers believe they may have identified a cause of Parkinson's disease.
A new study investigates how genetics risk factors for Alzheimer's could influence a key immune cell.
