Abstract

Although some previous studies have reported that genetic and immunologic factors play important roles in the pathogenesis of Kawasaki disease (KD), the etiologic factors of this enigmatical pediatric disease are still poorly understood. This study aims to investigate whether polymorphi...read more

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.

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.

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.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory genetically determined disease of the skin marked by increased ability to form reagin (IgE), with increased susceptibility to allergic rhinitis and asthma, and hereditary disposition to a lowered threshold for pruritus.

B cell Activation

B cell activation is initiated by the ligation of the B cell receptor with antigen and ultimately results in the production of protective antibodies against potentially pathogenic invaders. Here is the latest research.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.
