Latest Protective autoimmunity Stories
Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have discovered that human proteins with an affinity for Dermatan Sulfate (DS) have the propensity to become autoantigens.
Scientists from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute have identified the key immune cell population responsible for regulating the body's immune response.
A paper published online on January 10 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine reports that retinal ganglion cellsâ€”neurons in the eyeâ€”are rescued by immune cells that infiltrate the mouse retina after eye injury.
Researchers at BRIC, the University of Copenhagen, have discovered that the human body can create its own vaccine, which boosts the immune system and helps prevent chronic inflammatory diseases.
The complexity of the immune system and nervous system turn Neuroimmunology into one of the most exciting fields of modern biomedicine.
A team of international scientists led by Dr Florent Ginhoux of the Singapore Immunology Network (SIgN) of Singaporeâ€™s Agency of Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), have made a breakthrough that could lead to a better understanding of many neurodegenerative and inflammatory brain disorders.
A newly identified regulatory process affecting the biology of immune system T cells should give scientists new approaches to explore the causes of autoimmunity and immune deficiency diseases.
Scientists have uncovered a source of damage associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) that may lead them to an effective therapy for what is now an incurable condition.
A new focus on the immune system's ability to both unleash and restrain its attack on disease has led Dana-Farber Cancer Institute scientists to identify cells in mice that prevent the immune system from attacking the animals' own cells, protecting them from autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, and lupus.
White blood cells with receptors for both virus and nerve proteins may assault nerves after fighting an infection.
