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 may have discovered how Ebola invades our immune system and disrupts the host immune response.
New research has suggested that an inherited genetic trait appears to protect some individuals against MRSA infections.
New research has discovered a link between dietary zinc intake and protection against Streptococcus pneumoniae, suggesting it aids the immune system.
In this interview we speak to Vincent Racaniello, Professor of Microbiology & Immunology, about his work on polio, picornaviruses and publicizing science through blogs and podcasts.
New research has uncovered that Mycobacterium tuberculosis releases an antacid that remodels phagosomes, preventing immune cells from destroying the bacteria.
A study has revealed genetic variants associated with differing levels of protective antibodies produced after routine immunizations.
Innate lymphoid cells, a relatively newly discovered class of immune cells, play a pivotal role in controlling early tuberculosis infection, according to new research.
Early antiretroviral treatment in people with HIV infection could allow the generation of more functional and persistent CD8 T cell responses. The results, which suggest a long-term immune memory, could have implications for HIV vaccine development.
