The skin reactivity and lymph node responses to a large scale of different doses of oxazolone, were followed under continuous stimulation for a period of 12 days. It was found that the lack of a continuous high blast cell activity in the paracortex was a physiological response that could be observed with high dosage as well as with very low dosage. Low doses gave distinct stimulation of the paracortex without any detectable reaction in the cortex and in the medulla. Manifest stimulation of these compartments required considerably higher doses. A marked paracortical response was the only lymph node change required for development of a typical delayed type skin response. When germinal centres and plasma cells had developed, the skin reactivity was also found to change characteristically.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
