Abstract

Post kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis (PKDL), a dermal sequel of visceral leishmaniasis presents with macular or polymorphic lesions. As immunological variations between these two forms have not been delineated, we evaluated levels of antileishmanial total Ig, IgG and its subclasses, IgM,...read more

B cell Differentiation

Depending on the signal received through the B cell receptor and other receptors, B cells differentiate into follicular or marginal zone B cells. Here is the latest research pertaining to this differentiation process.

Leishmaniasis

Leishmaniasis is a parasitic infection caused by Leishmania species and transmitted though the bite of phlebotomine sand flies. It is considered to be a neglected tropical disease. Leishmaniasis is often categorized as cutaneous (presenting with skin sores, mucocutaneous (presenting with skin and mucosal lesions), and visceral (affecting multiple organs). Find the latest research on leishmaniasis here.

Parasite Host Response

The parasite host response refers to the process by which the host organism responds to and interacts with the parasite it encounters. Discover the latest research on this topic in this feed.

Immunoglobulin Class Switching

Immunoglobulin class switching from igm to igg and iga is central to immunity against viruses and requires the activation of b cells by t cells via cd154 and cytokines. Discover the latest research on immunoglobulin class switching here.

Canine Visceral Leishmaniasis

Q fever

Q fever is a worldwide zoonosis caused by the pathogen Coxiella burnetii causing acute and chronic clinical manifestations. Discover the latest research on Q Fever here.

Immunoglobulin G4-Related Disease

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease is a spectrum of systemic autoimmune diseases in which immunoglobulin G4 plays a pathophysiologic role. It can affect multiple organs in highly variable presentations, characterized by inflammatory lesions composed of IgG4-positive plasma cells, further infiltrated by T helper cells when linked to progressive fibrosis and eventual organ damage. Discover the latest research on immunoglobulin G4-related disease here.
