Abstract

Brain metastases are common intracranial neoplasms and their frequency increases with prolonged survival of cancer patients. New pharmaceuticals targeting oncogenic kinases and immune checkpoint inhibitors augment both overall and progression-free survival in patients with brain metasta...read more

Myeloid Cells And Neuroinflammation

Myeloid cells in the CNS are innate immune cells that are essential for brain development and maintenance. Here is the latest research on myeloid cells, including microglia, in neuroinflammation.

Myeloid-derived Suppressor Cells

MDSC (myeloid-derived suppressor cells) are a heterogenous group of immune cells from the myeloid lineage. MDSCs strongly expand in pathological situations such as chronic infections and cancer, as a result of an altered haematopoiesis. MDSCs are discriminated from other myeloid cell types in which they possess strong immunosuppressive activities rather than immunostimulatory properties.

Microglia: Health and Disease

Microglia are the resident macrophages of the central nervous system. Microglia-derived inflammatory neurotoxins play a principal role in the pathogenesis of several neurodegenerative disorders. Here is the latest research on the role of microglia in health and disease.

Immunomodulating Agents

Immunomodulating agents are substances that stimulate or suppresse the immune system and may help the body combat againsts cancer, infection, or other diseases. Discover the latest research on immunomodulating agents here.

Microglia And CNS Diseases

Microglia are resident macrophages of the CNS. They play a role in scavenging the CNS for plaques, phagocytosis, and extracellular signaling. Here is the latest research on their role in CNS diseases.
