IFM Therapeutics is a privately held biopharmaceutical company that has discovered and developed small molecules that modulate novel targets in the innate immune system as next-generation therapies for cancer, auto-immunity, and inflammatory disorders.
The innate immune system employs the recognition of particular molecules that are common to many pathogens, and absent in the host, in order to identify pathogens.
"Your innate immune system is a universal bacteria sensor; it has evolved to be one over hundreds and hundreds of years," said Jessica Kubicek-Sutherland, PhD, one of the LANL researchers responsible for the innovation in an interview with R&D Magazine.
"This new discovery suggests that genes that control pigment in hair and skin also work to control the innate immune system," said William Pavan, study co-author and chief of the Genetic Disease Research Branch at National Human Genome Research Institute under National Institute of Health.
Lius contributions to the field include pioneering work in the concept of T cell co-stimulation and cancer immunity, the relationship between innate and adaptive immunity and non-self-discrimination by the innate immune system. Many of Lius discoveries are being translated into immunotherapeutic approaches for cancer and autoimmune diseases, with a first-in-class immunotherapeutic now in a phase II clinical trial.
In some of the subjects, the innate immune system showed a particularly strong training effect.
The innate immune system plays a key role in sensing RNA viruses.
One of the immune systems that play a role in eliminating bacteria is innate immune system [9].
Evidence reveal that amongst the few labs that do study the glycocalyx, including Bertozzi's, have found that sialic acids, a subset of sugars, acts as a signal for the innate immune system to neglect the otherwise harmful appearing tumor.
It's a cell therapy, essentially taking cells from people who have a high-functioning innate immune system and transferring them to people with a lower level of cancerkilling activity.
Activating the innate immune system opens up the DNA, enhancing formation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) or cells that can have the ability to regenerate into other cell types and tissues, such as that of the brain, heart or liver.
The body's innate immune system was strengthened by this exposure, which means less chance of asthma developing.
The pneumonia is exacerbated by lung inflammation and cell damage caused by overreaction of the innate immune system. Such drugs would modulate ZBP1's action -- allowing the body to fight the virus by killing infected cells, but preventing that overreaction.
It is divided into two parts: our innate immune system and our adaptive immune system, also known as the antibody mediated (specific) immune system.
