Abstract

Apical membrane antigen 1 (AMA-1) is considered to be a major candidate antigen for a malaria vaccine. Previous immunoepidemiological studies of naturally acquired immunity to Plasmodium vivax AMA-1 (PvAMA-1) have shown a higher prevalence of specific antibodies to domain II (DII) of AM...read more

Immune Therapies In Cancer

Immunotherapy in cancer is used to help the immune system fight against invading cancer cells. It is used to slow the progression of the disease and prevent metastasis while enhancing the immune response. There are different types, including monoclonal antibodies and checkpoint inhibitors. Here is the latest research on immune therapies in cancer.

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.

Aminoglycosides

Aminoglycoside is a medicinal and bacteriologic category of traditional Gram-negative antibacterial medications that inhibit protein synthesis and contain as a portion of the molecule an amino-modified glycoside. Discover the latest research on aminoglycoside here.

Plasmodium Falciparum

Malaria remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the tropics, with the parasite Plasmodium falciparum responsible for the majority of the disease burden. Discover the latest research on Plasmodium falciparum.

Avian Influenza: Innate Immune Adjuvant

Adjuvants systems that are added to vaccines against avian influenza have be explored to enhance the innate immune system response against the virus. Here is the latest research on avian influenza and the innate immune adjuvant.
