A team has used two viruses to administer specific tumour components in mice with cancer to stimulate their immune system.
A team has found immune cells in the lungs after infection from the flu, which protected mice against reinfection from a different strain.
Researchers have developed a highly sensitive technique for probing molecules that they say could enable new applications in the fields of spectroscopy.
A study has shown that using three antibodies with two different mechanisms of action could be a novel way to improve immuno-oncology treatments.
It has been discovered that Id4 controls whether stem cells enter cell division and may be relevant for treating neurodegenerative disease.
A new study may provide the basis for combating malignant leukemia stem cells.
Controlling coronin 1 in T-cells could lead to the immune system not attacking transplanted organs, but still fighting other infections...

Scientists in Switzerland have constructed an enzyme than can penetrate a mammalian cell and accelerate the release of a hormone. This then activates a gene switch that triggers the creation of a fluorescent protein.
Researchers have presented a systematic catalogue of specific variable locations in the genome that influence gene activity in the human hippocampus...
The body's immune system performs essential functions, such as defending against bacteria and cancer cells. However, the human brain is separated from immune cells in the bloodstream by the so-called blood-brain barrier. This barrier protects the brain from pathogens and toxins circulating in the blood, while also dividing the immune…
