A new study reveals the structure of a crucial ion channel and shed new light on it's possible role in immune functions.
According to researchers, older adults who exercised for most of their lives showed signs of slowed down aging. The study reports those who actively cycled into older age had lower cholesterol levels and better immune systems than those who did not partake in regular exercise.
According to a new mouse study, antibiotics that are strong enough to kill gut bacteria can also halt the growth of hippocampal neurons.
A new study reports researchers have discovered a way to enhance the effects of immunotherapy to treat glioblastoma.
Combining a tetanus vaccine with a virus particle may prove effective as a protection against Alzheimer's. The vaccine could also be used to treat allergies and psoriasis, researchers report.
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.
People with OCD have six times higher Immuno-moodulin (Imood) expression that those without the disorder. Blocking Imood with the aid of an antibody reduced OCD-like behaviors in mouse models within a couple of days following treatment.
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.
