The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if patients receiving HSPPC-96 after surgery have an immune response against kidney cancer and how long the immune system response may ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the mechanism of a successful immune response to hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Currently, it is believed that the immune system is involved...
Activation of the immune system against a pathogen can be considered one of the most effective interventions in the field of infectious diseases. Transgene is developing a therapeutic vac...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the immune response to hepatitis C virus to determine why some people clear the virus and others develop chronic infection. Changes in immune re...
The purpose of this study is to determine the dose-response effect of a yogurt containing a combination of bifidobacterium Lactis (BB-12) and Lactobacillus Acidophilus (LA-5) and green tea...
Genes play an important role in the immune system response, and different gene loci may result in different vaccine immune response rates. This review focuses on the correlation between gene polymorph...
The objectives of this paper are to explore the impact of immune response on within-host viral evolution towards higher Darwinian fitness and, in particular, to verify a hypothesis that immune respons...
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained arrhythmia, but its mechanisms are poorly understood. Recently, accumulating evidence indicates a link between immune response and AF, but the pre...
Post-operative infections occur frequently following major surgery. The magnitude of the post-operative immune response is associated with an increased risk of post-operative infections, although the ...
Periodontitis is characterized by inflammatory mediators beyond T lymphocyte function and phenotype (Th1/Th2/Th17). The clinical diversity in periodontitis makes it difficult to characterize the immun...
The body's defense mechanism against foreign organisms or substances and deviant native cells. It includes the humoral immune response and the cell-mediated response and consists of a complex of interrelated cellular, molecular, and genetic components.
Substances that augment, stimulate, activate, potentiate, or modulate the immune response at either the cellular or humoral level. The classical agents (Freund's adjuvant, BCG, Corynebacterium parvum, et al.) contain bacterial antigens. Some are endogenous (e.g., histamine, interferon, transfer factor, tuftsin, interleukin-1). Their mode of action is either non-specific, resulting in increased immune responsiveness to a wide variety of antigens, or antigen-specific, i.e., affecting a restricted type of immune response to a narrow group of antigens. The therapeutic efficacy of many biological response modifiers is related to their antigen-specific immunoadjuvanticity.
A heterogeneous, immature population of myeloid cells that can suppress the activity of T-CELLS and NATURAL KILLER CELLS in the INNATE IMMUNE RESPONSE and ADAPTIVE IMMUNE RESPONSE. They play important roles in ONCOGENESIS; INFLAMMATION; and INFECTION.
The characteristic properties and processes involved in IMMUNITY and an organism's immune response.
Alteration of the immune system or of an immune response by agents that activate or suppress its function. This can include IMMUNIZATION or administration of immunomodulatory drugs. Immunomodulation can also encompass non-therapeutic alteration of the immune system effected by endogenous or exogenous substances.
