A team of researchers have demonstrated for the first time that measles can wipe out an individual’s immune system memory resulting in vulnerability to infections they were once immune to.
In this opinion piece we take a look at the interaction of bacteria, phages and the human immune system. asking how these three components each play a role in phage therapy?
Researchers from Gladstone Institutes and their partners at Xyphos Biosciences have demonstrated that a cell-based therapy, convertibleCAR®, appears to reduce the latent HIV reservoir in individuals on antiretroviral therapy.
New research has suggested that an inherited genetic trait appears to protect some individuals against MRSA infections.
Researchers have developed an animal model mimicking HIV infection in infants, potentially allowing the development of therapeutics and interventions for the pediatric population.
New research shows that hydrogen peroxide released by Streptococcus pneumoniae inhibits key components of the innate immune system. This contributes to the successful pathogen colonization of the host and causes pneumonia.
New research has discovered a link between dietary zinc intake and protection against Streptococcus pneumoniae, suggesting it aids the immune system.
