Discovery of new type of immune cells regulating inflammation in chronic diseases
Date:11/20/2009

re higher hygienic standards and modern nutritional habits. Diseases like psoriasis can have a substantial negative impact on a patient's quality of life, and sufferers must often follow long, drawn-out skin care treatment regimens to keep their symptoms at bay."

"We consider the discovery of the Th22 cells to be a milestone in immunology, providing a new starting point for the future treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases such as eczema, scleroderma, asthma or COPD," explained Professor Heidrun Behrendt, director of ZAUM and the Clinical Cooperation Group of Helmholtz Zentrum Mnchen and TU Mnchen.

The Munich researchers and their colleagues are elucidating the genesis of Th22 cells and investigating Th22-specific genes, which shall contribute to the development of selective and effective therapies for patients with chronic skin and respiratory diseases. Like other T helper cells, Th22 cells belong to a part of the immune system which can recognize damaging pathogens even after a long time has passed. This means that each treatment targeting these cells would have a potential long-term effect.
