Abstract

An effective malaria vaccine could prove to be the most cost-effective and efficacious means of preventing severe disease and death from malaria. In an endeavor to identify novel vaccine targets, we tested predicted Plasmodium falciparum open reading frames for proteins that elicit para...read more

X-Linked Combined Immunodeficiency Diseases

X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency is caused by mutations in the common cytokine-receptor gamma chain, resulting in disruption of development of T lymphocytes and natural-killer cells. Here is the latest research.


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.
