A newly developed experimental vaccine can diminish the fatal respiratory effects of carfentanil and fentanyl in rodent models.
A new treatment developed to help clear tau tangles in Alzheimer's disease is entering into early stage clinical trials.
Researchers have carried out clinical trials to test a mutation-specific vaccine against malignant brain tumors. The vaccine has been found to be safe and effective in triggering the desired immune response in the brain cancer tumors.
A newly developed vaccine for meningitis and other bloodstream infections caused by the meningococcal group B bacteria will allow for the immunization of younger children. The new vaccine also addresses several limitations of the current meningitis vaccine.
From anti-vaccine rhetoric to the over-prescription of antibiotics, researchers suggest we should try to work together to improve public health, rather than socially shun those who ignore scientific evidence.
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.
According to researchers, over 50% of people in some European countries still believe the myth that vaccines cause autism, despite the claim being widely discredited. A new paper looks at why so many people may still believe the vaccine-autism link is real.
Researchers report skepticism that the flu vaccine can cause autism, is ineffective and can result in contracting the virus prevents some parents from vaccinating their children.
Study reports past problems with vaccine research can cause hysteresis, or a negative history that stiffens the resolve of some against vaccinations. The findings shed light on why it is hard to improve vaccine uptake, even when there is overwhelming evidence of the safety and benefits of vaccinations.
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.
