A molecular 'switch' that controls the immune machinery responsible for chronic inflammation has been identified which could help treat or even reverse the development of age-related conditions like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, cancer and diabetes.
Researchers have provided new insight into the role of cyclic AMP (cAMP) in regulating the immune response which may lead to new ways of treating diseases.
Researchers have revealed that inhibiting IL-17 could prevent the effects of autoimmune diseases, including multiple sclerosis.
Scientists have found that a molecule present in our blood, called C4BP (β-), could be used in a therapeutic capacity for lupus as well as potentially other autoimmune disorders.
A loss-of-function mutation in the Prkd2 gene has been revealed as a driver of T follicular helper cell development which could be useful for vaccine design.
A new study into why neurons in the gut die and how the immune system protects them could lead to better treatments for IBS that work by boosting polyamine production.
Researchers have discovered how gamma-delta T cells become activated which could lead to the development of new and improved immunotherapy treatments.
In a world first, researchers have grown immune cells from pluripotent stem cells in a dish, which could be used to develop immunotherapies or to test autoimmune disease treatments.
A study has demonstrated the success of new compounds that prevent FOXM1, a transcription factor, from increasing cancer proliferation.
An mRNA vaccine has been developed which has elicited strong immune responses in mice in the presence of maternal antibodies.
Scientists have used nanotechnology to transform healthy immune cells into a drug with enhanced power to kill bacteria to help the immune system fight sepsis.
Researchers have used a drug candidate to block a receptor that contributes to the development of autoimmune disease which could be a potential treatment.
A study has found the processes used by macrophages in their immune response, which could be used in the development of new vaccines.
A study has found a new molecular process in mice that causes autoimmune diseases and has opened avenues for developing more effective autoimmune therapies.
