The findings are being published todayon the Web page of the highly prestigious American Journal of Huma...

New Insights Into HIV Immunity Suggest Alternative Approach to Vaccines

...tself, as in autoimmune disorders such as systemic lupus erythematosus. When viruses activate innate B cells, the body destroys the B cells to protect against autoantibodies that could cause autoimmune disease or other harm. The second immune system category is adaptive B cell immunity, a slower response ...

The next logical step then, Ravetch says, was determining how the IgG molecules in IVIG preparation could have an anti-inflammatory effect. Because a therapeutic, anti-inflammatory response to IVIG requires a co...

Drug dials down the energy within cells, UM researchers find

Unlike conventional drugs for these conditions, which can't discriminate between healthy and disease-causing cells, Bz-423 is highly selective, homing in on disease-causing cells. In an attempt to bet...

Research suggests beta agonists may alter the immune system

... worsen diseases such as asthma, heart failure and lupus that involve inflammation. The scientific team led by Raymond Penn, Ph.D., and Matthew Loza, Ph.D, found that beta-agonists, such as those used in the treatment of asthma, increase the accumulation of type 2 T cells, a type of white blood cell that ...

New insights into autoimmunity and depression

Systemic lupus erythomatosus (SLE), often simply called lupus, is a complex autoimmune disease marked by joint pain, skin rashes, extreme fatigue, and depression, among other symptoms. Some studies have described a possible link between SLE’s most severe psychiatri...
