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.
Cord blood in regenerative medicine: do we need immune suppression?The purpose of this paper is to put forth the notion that the immunology of cord blood transplants for regenerative applications has to be viewed differently from the perspective and the practice of cord blood transplants for hematopoietic reconstitution.
Immune response modulation by curcumin in a latex allergy modelA study on the immunomodulatory role of curcumin in a mouse model of latex allergy.
CD8 apoptosis may be a predictor of T cell number normalization after immune reconstitution in HIVThe present Houston Vanguard sub-study examines a small group of subcutaneously IL-2 (scIL-2) treated patients.
Intravenous immune globulin in hereditary inclusion body myopathy: a pilot studyThe mild benefits in muscle strength experienced by HIBM patients after IVIG treatment may be related to the provision of sialic acid supplied by IVIG.
The Thymus Is a Common Target Organ in Infectious DiseasesIn the present review the authors discuss a number of findings related to the lymphoid as well as the microenvironmental compartments of the thymus in the infectious disease state
High Hygiene Standards Weaken Immune System To Skin AllergiesIt appears that bathing infants too often can trigger and worsen eczema.
Molecular Mechanism That Makes Immune System's Guard Dogs HowlResearchers have found the molecular mechanism that helps toll-like receptors, also known as the guard dogs of the immune system, activate the body's defences.
AIDS Drugs May Fully Restore Immune SystemResearchers report that AIDS drug cocktails may be able to fully restore the immune systems of some people infected with HIV.
Immune cells in the brains of aging mice prove more functional than expectedMicroglia — the small immune cells that sense injury and the presence of pathogens in the nervous system — have shown increased activity, producing higher amounts of signaling molecules called cytokines
Immune system 'escape hatch' gives cancer cells tractionScientists at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere say they have mapped out an escape route that cancers use to evade the body’s immune system, allowing the disease to spread unchecked.
New Details On How The Immune System Recognizes InfluenzaScientists have completed the most comprehensive analysis to date of published influenza A virus epitopes--the critical sites on the virus that are recognized by the immune system.
How White Blood Cells Cannibalize Virus-infected CellsResearchers have demonstrated how certain white blood cells literally eat virus-infected cells while fighting disease at the microscopic level.
Scientists Identify Immune System Trigger For Fighting Lyme DiseaseResearchers have announced an important finding on Lyme disease that could eventually lead to the development of a new vaccine to prevent this tick-borne disorder.
Immune Cell Communication Key To Hunting VirusesImmunologists have used nanotechnology to create a novel “biosensor” to solve in part a perplexing problem in immunology: how immune system cells called killer T-cells hunt down invading viruses.
Yale Study Explains Complex Infection Fighting MechanismResearchers report how infection fighting mechanisms in the body can distinguish between a virus and the healthy body, shedding new light on auto immune disorders.
Gladstone Investigators Discover How Resting T Cells Avoid HIV InfectionScientists have discovered the mechanism that enables some CD4 T cells -- the main target of HIV -- to thwart the virus.
The immune system: a new look at painAn article that reviews the relationship between the immune system and the mechanism of pain...
Multiple Sclerosis Progression Linked To Immune-cell SubstanceA new study suggests that a substance made by immune cells plays a key role in the progression of a disease in animals that closely mimics multiple sclerosis
Researchers Unlock Key Secrets Showing How Tumors Hide From Immune SystemResearchers have unlocked at least part of the mystery of how tumors flourish undetected by keeping their presence a secret from sentries of the body's immune system.
Old Mystery Solved, Revealing Origin Of Regulatory T Cells That 'Police' And Protect The BodyHassall's corpuscles produce chemical signals that direct a specialized group of dendritic cells to turn some of the bad Tcells into "good cop" regulatory T cells.
