Progress toward an antitumor vaccine

...MUC1 would be a good target molecule (antigen) for antibodies in immunological antitumor therapy. The difficulty with this approach is that such sugar-containing compounds are completely ineffective at stimulating the immune system to form antibodies. “Immunization is only successful if the vaccine is anchor...

Blood-brain barrier breached by new therapeutic strategy

...terference therapy did not trigger inflammation or antibodies to the peptide. Currently, doctors use various methods to deliver therapeutic drugs directly into the brain. These methods involve invasive procedures that result in only localized delivery around the site of injection. The new research provides ...

How 'memory' T cells curb the spread of viruses throughout the body

...se. While scientists have long known the role of antibodies in protection, whether memory cells, known as CD8 T cells, could prevent viral diseases has been debated. The new work by Fox Chase virologist Luis J. Sigal, D.V.M., Ph.D., and his Fox Chase colleagues in the virology and pathology programs, provide...

HIV and malaria combine to adversely affect pregnant women and their infants

...tas. They found that HIV-infected women lose these antibodies and again become susceptible to the ravages of PAM. The findings, according to Kain, may help in the development of PAM vaccines. "This is only the first step in creating therapeutics to treat this devastating disease," he stresses. "We hope to he...
