Team links gene expression, immune system with cancer survival rates

Linking gene expression patterns and immune system response to patient survival rates in nearly 18,000 cases of 39 types of cancers illuminates broad prognostic correlations. ... Full story

Study in mice may identify new ways to treat immune thrombocytopenia

By Geoff Koehler - Immune thrombocytopenia, or ITP, is an autoimmune disease whereby the immune system sends antibodies to attack and destroy the body’s platelets—blood cells responsible for controlling bleeding. ... Full story

Cell division speeds up as part of antibody selection, study shows

It’s a basic principle of immunology: When a germ invades, the body adapts to that particular target and destroys it. But much remains unknown about how the immune system refines its defensive proteins, called antibodies, to most effectively zero in on that invader. Experiments at The Rockefeller University offer new insight into the details of this selection process. ... Full story

Scientists find molecular switch that creates long-term immunity

Melbourne researchers have identified a protein responsible for preserving the antibody-producing cells that lead to long-term immunity after infection or vaccination. ... Full story

Purdue study finds vitamin A directs immune cells to the intestines

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — A key set of immune cells that protect the body from infection would be lost without directions provided by vitamin A, according to a recent study. ... Full story

Cell machinery wears complex coat

Researchers at EMBL Heidelberg have produced detailed images of the intricate protein-coats that surround trafficking vesicles - the “transport pods” that move material around within biological cells. The study, published today in Science, provides a new understanding of the complex machines that make up the cells’ logistics network. ... Full story
