Image: Mark Anderson, MD, PhD, led a team that identified an immune cell, called eTAC cells (shown in green), that may help prevent autoimmune diseases. ETAC cells, which contain a protein in their nucleus called AIRE (shown in red) are relatively rare, and found in lymph nodes and the spleen (Photo courtesy of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)).

Discovery Enables Autoimmune Disease Treatment Strategy

Scientists have found a new way to manipulate the immune system that may keep it from attacking the body’s own molecules in autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, and multiple sclerosis. More...

Image: This photomicrograph depicts airway epithelial cells from lung tissue of a COPD patient. The cell nuclei have been stained to reveal IL-33, a type of signaling molecule found at high levels in COPD patients. New research shows that viral infection can induce these cells to proliferate. Release of IL-33 from these cells promotes inflammatory mucus production. These findings provide insight into the mechanisms linking acute infection to chronic inflammatory lung disease (Photo courtesy of Holtzman Lab, Washington University School of Medicine).

Cytokines Induced by Exposure to Airborne Pollutants Drive the Transition from Acute to Chronic Lung Infections

Molecular signaling molecules that link acute viral infections with the development of chronic diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease have been identified in a mouse model and in human patient samples. More...

Brains Cells May Regenerate After Radiotherapy

Research suggests that neural stem cells are resistant to radiation, and can be woken up to reproduce and generate new cells able to migrate, replace damaged cells, and possibly restore lost function. More...
