2011-04-29 - Scientists Discover How WhiteBloodCells Detect Infectious Invaders
Scientists at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center have discovered how a molecular receptor on the surface of whitebloodcells identifies when invading fungi have established direct contact with the cell surface and pose an infectious threat.

2012-07-16 - Helper T Cells, Not Killer T Cells, Might Be Responsible for Clearing Hepatitis A Infection
Helper cells traditionally thought to only assist killer whitebloodcells may be the frontline warriors when battling hepatitis A infection. These are the findings from a Nationwide Children’s Hospital study appearing in a recent issue of the Journal of Experimental Medicine.

2010-08-26 - Macrophages The Defense Cells That Regulate Immunity and Help Heal Wounds
The term “macrophage” conjures images of a hungry whitebloodcell gobbling invading bacteria. However, macrophages do much more than that: Not only do they act as antimicrobial warriors, they also play critical roles in immune regulation and wound-healing. They can respond to a variety of cellular
