Designer viruses stimulate the immune system to fight cancer

Swiss scientists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, and the University of Basel have created artificial viruses that can target cancer. These designer viruses alert the immune system ...

Savior of T-cells may be enemy of liver immune cells

Researchers at Houston Methodist demonstrated that a surface protein called OX40, responsible for keeping one type of immune system cell alive, can trigger the death of liver immune cells, in turn sta...

Genetic variation linked to overreaction of immune system to viruses

Researchers at Cardiff University have discovered that genetic variation is the reason why some immune systems overreact to viruses.

Genetic variation may be reason for overreaction of immune system to viruses

Researchers at Cardiff University have discovered that genetic variation is the reason why some immune systems overreact to viruses.

New technique opens door for biochemists to create better therapeutic antibodies

Antibodies are the foot soldiers of our immune system. These specialized, Y-shaped proteins attach to bacteria and viruses, where they either block the pathogen's activity directly, or signal the immu...
