Researchers have been using artificial intelligence to study how the microbiome interacts with the human system to improve vaccine response.
The DREP-S vaccine candidate was found to be the most potent of the two investigational vaccine prototypes, eliciting high titers of SARS-CoV-2 neutralising antibodies after a single dose.
Hamster challenge study results suggests the oral COVID-19 vaccine induces a robust immune response, protecting the animals from infection.
The World Health Organization (WHO) identifies leishmaniasis as a neglected tropical disease for which new treatments are vitally needed. Leishmaniasis primarily affects people in South America, East Africa and Asia, especially those weakened by malnutrition and poverty. To help those with this disfiguring and potentially life-threatening parasitic disease, the European…
Neoantigens have gained much interest in recent years, mainly due to their ability to elicit a strong, specific immune response. Nikki Withers spoke to two immunology experts to explore the progress being made and assess what remains challenging for cancer investigators working on these transformational therapies.
A study has demonstrated that a novel vaccine design for pancreatic cancer has been successful in mice, doubling survival time.
Therapeutic drugs based on biological materials (antibodies, hormones, cytokines, enzymes, fusion proteins) may have the ability to elicit an immune response in the host.
A study has uncovered the mechanism behind calcium entry and exit into T cells, which could be used in development of autoimmune disease treatments.
