Unlike other known cytokines, they write in the journal Nature Immunology, this messenger substance is essential for the development of the disease. By the end of this year, a clinical trial will be launched in which GM-CSF is to be neutralized in MS patients. The immune...

New research on mice has shown that pulmonary administration of granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) significantly reduces flu symptoms and prevents death after a lethal dose influenza virus. While GM-SCF therapy for humans as a flu prophylaxis or treatment may be years away, the study results were striking: All of the mice treated with GM-SCF survived after being infected with the influenza virus, whereas untreated mice all died from the same infection. "Such unique and...

An Anglo-Swiss research project has found that the impact of disease-resistant genetically-modified wheat plants on insects may be negligible. Many studies have looked at the effects of genetically-modified (GM) plants on single non-target insects. However, agro-ecosystems are characterised by numerous insect species forming food webs. This study is the first to investigate different transgenic disease-resistant wheat lines and their effect on the structure of whole aphid-parasitoid food...

British scientists have successfully developed chickens that do not transmit bird flu infections, which could inevitably reduce the risk of deadly avian flu epidemics in humans. Scientists from Cambridge and Edinburgh universities report that although the chickens they genetically modified (GM) still fell ill to H5N1 bird flu and died, they did not transmit the virus to other chickens they came into contact with. "Preventing virus transmission in chickens should reduce the economic impact...
