White Blood Cells May Cause Tumor Cell Death -- But That's Not Good 亚博棋牌平台

White blood cells are part of many immune system responses in the human body. New research shows that a specific type of those cells may cause brain cancer tissues to die -- but that's not good ...

Off-the-Shelf Immune Drug Shows Promise in Aggressive Multiple Myeloma

A subcutaneous injection of the immune-boosting drug teclistamab was found to be safe and elicit responses in a majority of patients with relapsed or refractory multiple ...

Why Long-Suffering Hosts Grow a Thick Skin

Occasionally, following a transplant procedure, the donor's immune cells recognize the recipient's tissues as foreign and trigger a multisystem disorder called graft-versus-host disease ...

How SARS-CoV-2 Reaches the Brain

Researchers have studied the mechanisms by which the novel coronavirus can reach the brains of patients with COVID-19. The results show that SARS-CoV-2 enters the brain via nerve cells in the ...

Combination Therapy Might Improve Outcomes in Treatment-Resistant Liver Cancer

A combination cancer therapy that is effective against treatment-resistant hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) by inhibiting tumor growth and increasing survival has been identified. The dual therapy -- ...

Chemical Compounds in Foods Can Inhibit a Key SARS-CoV-2 Enzyme, Study Finds

Chemical compounds in foods or beverages like green tea, muscadine grapes and dark chocolate can bind to and block the function of a particular enzyme, or protease, in the SARS-CoV-2 virus, according ...

Microbiota Linked to Dynamics of Human Immune System

Researchers have uncovered an important finding about the relationship between the microbiota and the immune system, showing for the first time that the concentration of different types of immune ...

New Method Identifies Adaptive Mutations in Complex Evolving Populations

A scientist has developed a method to study how HIV mutates to escape the immune system in multiple individuals, which could inform HIV vaccine ...

COVID-19 Studies Should Also Focus on Mucosal Immunity, Researchers Argue

More COVID-19 studies should be devoted to how immunity emerges to SARS-CoV-2 in the mucous membranes of the nose and mouth, a new paper ...

New Study Explains Important Cause of Fatal Influenza

It is largely unknown why influenza infections lead to an increased risk of bacterial pneumonia. Researchers have now described important findings leading to so-called superinfections, which claim ...

T-Cell Abnormalities in Severe COVID-19 Cases

Researchers performed a genetic analysis of T cells from lung tissue of COVID-19 patients. They found abnormalities that resulted in T cell overreaction that may cause severe ...

Research Shows Bariatric Surgery May Reduce Severity of COVID-19 in Patients With Obesity

A new study shows that among patients who have obesity and who tested positive for COVID-19, a past history of bariatric surgery was significantly associated with a lower risk of hospital and ...

Channeling the Immune System for Head and Neck Cancer

Researchers have discovered new clues into why some people with head and neck cancer respond to immunotherapy, while others ...

Study Shows Protective Role Sex Steroids Play in COVID-19

A new paper analyzes existing research to look at reasons why COVID-19 symptom severity and mortality are more frequent in men than in women and in older people. The research suggests female ...

New Therapy for Flu May Help in Fight Against COVID-19

A new therapy for influenza virus infections that may also prove effective against many other pathogenic virus infections, including HIV and COVID-19, has been developed by scientists. The ...

Therapeutic PD-1 Cancer Vaccine Shown to Be Safe and Effective in Animal Study

A study has described a potential therapeutic anticancer vaccine that frees suppressed cancer-killing immune cells, enabling them to attack and destroy a ...

Boosting Stem Cell Activity Can Enhance Immunotherapy Benefits

Immune-system T cells have been reprogrammed into regenerative stem cell-like memory (TSCM) cells that are long-lived, highly active 'super immune cells' with strong antitumor activity, ...

Altered 'Coat' Disguises Fatal Brain Virus from Neutralizing Antibodies

A genetic modification in the 'coat' of a brain infection-causing virus may allow it to escape antibodies, according to researchers. They say testing people for this and other viral ...

How Tissue Geometry Influences the Movement of Cells Through the Body

Cells move constantly throughout our bodies, performing myriad operations critical to tissue development, immune responses and general wellbeing. This bustle is guided by chemical cues long studied ...

Engineered Immune Cells Elicit Broad Response to HIV in Mice, Offering Hope for Vaccine

Unlike so many other deadly viruses, HIV still lacks a vaccine. The virus has proven especially tricky to prevent with conventional antibodies, in part because it evolves so rapidly in the body. A ...
