Latest Testicular immunology Stories
Scientists have long known that certain types of bacteria boost the immune system.
--However, Animal Study Also Points Toward Strategies for Success-- PHILADELPHIA, Aug.
Scientists at Burnham Institute for Medical Research (Burnham) and the University of California San Diego (UC San Diego) School of Medicine have demonstrated in mice that transplanted pancreatic precursor cells are protected from the immune system when encapsulated in polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE).
Findings have implications for treating returning vets and others exposed to laser burns BOSTON, Feb.
By Mike Waites Health Correspondent The killer cells are part of the body's immune system which have been shown to destroy cancers in the test tube.But the cells also produce chemicals which direct the activity of other parts of the immune system, effectively sounding an alarm directing the body to attack infections.Now a research team from York University's Centre for Immunology and Infection has shown for the first timer that the cells also do the opposite and make chemicals which can...
IN the last two decades, there has been a lot of attention on the body's defence (immune) system as the foundation of health. Researchers now know a lot more about how the immune system works and realise that it is the ultimate basis of how well we feel and how we respond to health challenges.
Scientists at The Schepens Eye Research Institute have discovered that a protein known as F4/80 found on immune cells in the eye and other parts of the body may have a function in the regulation of the body's immune response and protect delicate tissues that cannot survive the "inflammation" inherent in full-blown immunity.
The immune system is a complex and powerful weapon that provides protection against bacteria and viruses that, if left unchecked, would wreak havoc throughout the human body.
Shedding light on the body's â€œrapid responseâ€ forces.
