  • Study Identifies Genetic Risk for Hyperinflammatory Disorder From Viral Infection
    A group of people with fatal H1N1 flu died after their viral infections triggered a deadly hyperinflammatory disorder in susceptible individuals with gene mutations linked to the overactive immune response, according to a study in the Journal of Infectious Diseases. ...More

  • Thrombosis During Sepsis is a Consequence of Protective Host Immune Responses
    Researchers from the University of Birmingham have, for the first time, identified how Salmonella infections that have spread to our blood and organs can lead to life-threatening thrombosis. These systemic infections trigger the development of inflammation, which in turn ...More

  • Self-Rated Health Predicts Immune Response to the Common Cold
    It turns out that we may be the best forecasters of our own health. New research from Carnegie Mellon University psychologists shows that a simple self-rating of health accurately predicts susceptibility to the common cold in healthy adults aged 18-55 years. Published in ...More

  • Researchers Explore Natural Molecule's Potential to Aid Immune Response
    The environment can make all the difference in behavior -- even at the cellular level. Scientists at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute have discovered even a small shift in environmental factors can change how a cell in the immune system matures. They published ...More

  • Immune Responses Provide Clues for HIV Vaccine Development
    Recent research has yielded new information about immune responses associated with--and potentially responsible for--protection from HIV infection, providing leads for new strategies to develop an HIV vaccine. Results from the RV144 trial, reported in 2009, provided the ...More

  • NIH Scientists Identify How Normally Protective Immune Responses Kill Neurons
    National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientists studying inflammation of the brain have discovered why certain immune responses, which typically help cells recognize and fight viral and bacterial infections, can sometimes be harmful to the brain. Many brain disorders involve ...More

  • Flu Infection Reveals Many Paths to Immune Response
    A new study of influenza infection in an animal model broadens understanding of how the immune system responds to flu virus, showing that the process is more dynamic than usually described, engaging a broader array of biological pathways. The researchers say their findings ...More

  • HIV Particles Do Not Cause AIDS, Our Own Immune Cells Do
    Researchers from the Gladstone Institutes have revealed that HIV does not cause AIDS by the virus's direct effect on the host's immune cells, but rather through the cells' lethal influence on one another. HIV can either be spread through free-floating virus that directly ...More

  • Immune System Helps Killer Cells When Infection is Present
    Scientists at the University of Bonn, together with colleagues from the U.S. and Japan, have shed light on an important immune mechanism. Their work shows how the body provides the important killer cells with a helper in the case of an infection. The study could point the ...More

  • Adjuvants Improve Immune Response to H7N9 Flu Vaccine
    In a phase 2 trial that included nearly 1,000 adults, the AS03 and MF59 adjuvants (a component that improves immune response of inactivated influenza vaccines) increased the immune responses to two doses of an inactivated H7N9 influenza vaccine, with AS03-adjuvanted ...More
