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.
Delivering HIV vaccines via slow-release methods has enhanced the protective immune response in preclinical models, according to new research.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Virology review, entitled: ‘Comparative host genomics: Has recent human evolution affected our immune defense against hepatitis C virus?’, as we ask the authors about the importance of the IFNL4 gene and the work that’s still to be done in the field.
ECCMID19: Immune response to Ebola 2 years post-infection could provide clues for vaccine development
Two years after Ebola infection, survivors exhibit specific memory T cell responses against ebolavirus, according to new research presented at ECCMID.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa uses a phage to trick the host’s immune system into ignoring it, in turn suppressing bacterial clearance from infected wounds, according to new research.
Findings from a study at Portland State University suggest the severity of sepsis development and the subsequent outcome can be worsened through eating a ‘Western’ diet, high in both sugar and fat.
A new study has suggested that sleep causes a dip in Gαs-coupled receptor agonists, in turn improving T cell integrin activation – a process T cells use to target viral cells.
New research has provided evidence that basophils might play an important role in the immune response to bacterial infections, preventing the development of sepsis.
