Biology Articles » Immunobiology
Articles on Immunobiology include studies on the structure and function of the immune system, innate and acquired immunity, the bodily distinction of self from nonself, and laboratory techniques involving the interaction of antigens with specific antibodies.
B Cells Can Act Alone In Autoimmune DiseaseB cells, the source of damaging autoantibodies, have long been thought to depend upon T cells for their activation and were not considered important in the initiation of autoimmune diseases....
How Superbugs Control Their Lethal WeaponsIt appears that some superbugs have evolved to develop the ability to manipulate the immune system to everyone's advantage.
Crossroads ofextrathymic lymphocytesmaturation pathwaysHypothesis that microbes, especially viruses, can be promoters of extrathymic (self)antigen-reactive lymphocytes maturation is real ....
Early immune system exposures linked to chronic diseaseScientists and regulators have a golden opportunity to reduce the health toll from a range of diseases by focusing more attention on identification of environmental factors that can damage the prenatal immune system
MSU researchers make new discoveries on what does and doesn't affect immune systemScientists know that a number of factors can affect the body's immune system
Researchers discover new battleground for viruses and immune cellsFinding should aid those developing anti-virus vaccines
Tattooing improves response to DNA vaccineA tattoo can be more than just a fashion statement - it has potential medical value
NIAID scientists identify new cellular receptor for HIVA cellular protein that helps guide immune cells to the gut has been newly identified as a target of HIV when the virus begins its assault on the body's immune system
Some cases of autism may be traced to the immune system of mothers during pregnancyUC-Davis discovery could lead to prenatal identification and prevention
Gene therapy protocol at UCSD activates immune system in patients with leukemiaResearchers inserted a gene with the potential to activate an immune response...
A functional immune system can be derived from embryonic stem cells, preliminary study findsA new study demonstrates for the first time that embryonic stem cells can be used to create functional immune system blood cells
Bacterial toxin closes gate on immune response, Penn researchers discoverImplications for finding new ways to fight MRSA
Genetic breakthrough supercharges immunity to flu and other virusesResearchers at McGill University have discovered a way to boost an organism's natural anti-virus defences, effectively making its cells immune to influenza and other viruses
Mesothelin engineered on virus-like particles provides treatment clues for pancreatic cancerNew understanding of a protein that spurs the growth of pancreatic cancer could lead to a new vaccine against the deadly disease
New approach may render disease-causing staph harmlessResearchers at the University of Illinois helped lead a collaborative effort to uncover a completely new treatment strategy for serious Staphylococcus aureus ("Staph") infections
Scientists move closer to developing a new class of asthma and allergy drugsteam of Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council funded scientists has moved a step closer to developing a new class of effective asthma and allergy drugs.
Novel approach strips staph of virulenceAn international team of researchers supported by the National Institutes of Health has blocked staph infections in mice using a drug previously tested in clinical trials as a cholesterol-lowering agent.
Edmonton Protocol - Possible cure for Type 1 Diabetes patientsArticle I wrote for Sophomore Research Project. Includes Edmonton Protocol procedure, description of Type 1 Diabetes, and other Type 1 treatments
Immune response after experimental allergic encephalomyelitis in rats subjected to calorie restrictionThe present study was carried out to further examine the immune responses after EAE in rats subjected to a severe (i.e., 66 %) or a moderate (i.e. 33 %) calorie restriction.
Immune-mediated changes in actinic keratosis following topical treatment with imiquimod 5% creamThe objective of this study was to identify the molecular processes responsible for the anti-lesional activity of imiquimod in subjects with actinic keratosis using global gene expression profiling.
