Andrew J Leishman, Robert V Bundick

Abstract

One of the driving forces in the field of immunology is the ambition to translate experimental research into novel useful therapies. Therefore, the aim of this mini-review is to exemplify emerging therapies as well as highlight hurdles that need to be overcome before they can be introdu...read more

Interferon Stimulated Genes

Interferon-stimulated gene products take on a number of diverse roles. Collectively, they are highly effective at resisting and controlling pathogens. Discover the latest research on interferon-stimulated genes here.

Cell Migration

Cell migration is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development, cancer metastasis, blood vessel formation and remoulding, tissue regeneration, immune surveillance and inflammation. Here is the latest research.

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.

Leukemia, T-Cell

T-cell leukemia includes various types of lymphoid leukemia that affect T cells. Here is the latest research on T-cell leukemia.

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.

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.

Therapy for Autoimmunity

Currently treatments for autoimmune diseases are anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive, although recent advances in regulatory T cell therapy have shown promise as a potential therapeutic strategy. Discover the latest research on Therapies for Autoimmunity here.

B-Cell Leukemia (Keystone)

B-cell leukemia includes various types of lymphoid leukemia that affect B cells. Here is the latest research on B-cell leukemia.

Systemic Autoimmunity

Systemic autoimmunity is a complex disease process that results from a loss of immunological tolerance, characterized by the inability of the immune system to discriminate self from non-self. Discover the latest research on Systemic Autoimmunity here.

Human Immune Variation: Genetics, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Leukocytes Migration

Leukocyte migration is essential for reactions to inflammatory stimuli at various locations in the body. However, leukocyte movement is also crucial during non-inflammatory processes such as haematopoietic development and routine passage through secondary lymphoid organs, which is also required for effective antigen presentation. Discover the latest research on leukocyte migration here,

Leukemia, B-Cell

B-cell leukemia includes various types of lymphoid leukemia that affect B cells. Here is the latest research on B-cell leukemia.

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.

MLL-r Leukemia

Mixed lineage leukemia-1 (MLL-1) is a particular type of acute leukemia from the mutation of the MLL/KMT2A gene. This mutation can be seen in pediatrics, adults and therapy-induced acute leukemia’s. Discover the latest research on MLL-r leukemia here.

T cells: Costimulatory Receptors

T cell activation requires engagement of both the T cell receptor and a co-stimulatory molecule. Lack of a co-stimulatory signal can result in T cell anergy, deletion, or immune tolerance. Find the latest research on T cell co-stimulatory receptors here.

Human Immune Variation: Genetic, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system 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.

Leukocyte Trafficking

Leukocyte trafficking from blood into tissue is a fundamental process in immune surveillance and the immune response to stimuli. Discover the latest research on Leukocyte Trafficking here.

Immunosuppression

Immunosuppression trends for solid organ transplantation have undergone a perceptible shift over the past decade. Discover the latest research on immunosuppression here.
