Abstract

B cells are essential components of the adaptive immune system and have important roles in the pathogenesis of several central nervous system (CNS) diseases. Besides producing antibodies, B cells perform other functions, including antigen presentation to T cells, production of proinflam...read more

Innate Immunity: Neurodegeneration

The innate immune system is a first line of defense against infection. Pathological states can occur if there is over activation of the innate immune system, particularly in the. The excessive activation of these cells can lead to inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases. Here is the latest research on innate immunity and neurodegeneration.

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of muscle control, including trembling of the limbs and impaired balance. Here is the latest research.

Immunogenetics of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) was one of the first conditions shown to be associated with HLA class II factors. Find the latest research on MS here, including HLA studies providing insights on the genetics of the susceptibility to MS.

Dementia & Neurodegenerative Diseases

This feed focuses on the impact of insulin resistance, caloric restriction, cytokine singling, and metabolism on dementia and neurodegenerative diseases. Here is the latest research in this domain.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a demyelinating autoimmune disease of the CNS, resulting in symptoms including optic neuritis and motor weakness. Discover the latest research on Multiple Sclerosis here.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Neuromyelitis Optica

Neuromyelitis optica is an inflammatory disease characterized by selective demyelination of the spinal cord and optic nerves. Discover the latest research on neuromyelitis optica here.

MS: Therapies

The feed focuses on therapeutic interventions used to treat Multiple Sclerosis.

T Cell Reactivity to Tau & Alpha-Synuclein in PD

Tau and alpha-synuclein are proteins that form aggregates which characterize various neurodegenerative disorders including Parkinson’s disease. This feed focuses on the reaction of T lymphocytes in response to tau and alpha-synuclein.
