Image: Aggressor cells, which have the potential to cause autoimmunity, are targeted by treatment, causing conversion of these cells to protector cells. Gene expression changes gradually at each stage of treatment, as illustrated by the color changes in this series of heat maps (Photo courtesy of the University of Bristol/Dr. Bronwen Burton).

“Switch Off Button” Discovered in Autoimmune Disorders

Scientists have made an important advance in the fight against debilitating autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis by demonstrating how to stop cells destroy healthy body tissue. Instead of the body’s immune system destroying its own tissue by mistake, researchers have discovered how cells can be transformed from being aggressive to actually protecting against disease.  More...

Nanotechnology Provides an Armory of Imaging and Therapeutic Applications

Scientists have created dynamic nanoparticles that could provide a range of applications to diagnose and treat cancer. Built on a simple-to-construct polymer base, these particles can be utilized as contrast agents to illuminate tumors for MRI and PET scans or deliver chemo and other therapies to kill tumors.  More...
