Analysis of T-cell receptors sheds light on cause of autoimmune diseases
An analysis of T-cell receptors by researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine, and colleagues at Stanford University and Oxford University, has generated evidence that microbial antigens and self-antigens could play a pathogenic role in certain autoimmune diseases.
New research shows smallpox vaccine trains T cells to recognize mpox
Scientists from the La Jolla Institute for Immunology have found new evidence that the vaccinia vaccine MVA-BN (brand name JYNNEOS) can train virus-fighting T cells to recognize the monkeypox (mpox) virus.
Preclinical KRAS inhibitor triggers complete responses in pancreatic tumors
A small molecule KRASG12D inhibitor has triggered complete responses in preclinical pancreatic cancer models, raising hopes that the approach can improve outcomes in the hard-to-treat tumor type.
Cryo-EM reveals 3D structure of inflammasomes implicated in multiple diseases
Using cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), researchers from Harvard Medical School and Peking University have generated 3D images of the inflammasome in its active state for the first time, enabling scientists to view a structure linked to multiple diseases in near-atomic resolution.
Multivalent mRNA vaccine protects animals against variety of influenza strains
A multivalent mRNA vaccine has protected animals against a variety of influenza strains, suggesting the candidate could play a role in mitigating the threat of seasonal and pandemic flu.
CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing links RNA-binding protein to immunotherapy resistance
Using CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing, Swiss researchers have provided evidence that expression of an RNA-binding protein helps tumors to evade the immune system.
Immunosuppressive pathway offers explanation for failure of TIGIT clinical trials
Albert Einstein College of Medicine scientists in a new analysis of the immunosuppressive KIR2DL5/PVR pathway provide a potential explanation for why anti-TIGIT therapies have failed in clinical trials.
Fentanyl vaccine stops opioid entering the brain in rats, clearing path to human studies
A fentanyl vaccine has generated antibodies against the potent synthetic opioid in rats, pointing to a way to address opioid use disorder in humans.
DNA barcoding shows how breast cancer cells evade the immune system
Using DNA barcodes, scientists at Australia’s Garvan Institute of Medical Research have revealed how cancer cells can evade the immune system and render immunotherapies ineffective.
Discovery of immune cell functionality could improve vaccine design
Using specially bred mice, Rutgers University researchers have differentiated the functions of two types of immune cells -- known as tissue-resident memory T cells -- that protect against infection and cancer, with the potential to improve vaccine efficacy as well as combat autoimmune diseases.
