For example, "accessory" molecules on T cells also bind to proteins on other immune
cells as part of the activation process.
Katze of the University of Washington in Seattle, scientists hadn't learned much about how an infected person's immune
system reacted once the virus had settled in.
The technology - which is based upon the combination of an adjuvant with virosomes - achieves a significantly enhanced immune
response to an antigen challenge.
This animal observation supports the belief that there could be two very different kinds of immune
-based treatment--helping the immune
system suppress HIV and reduce viral load (much like antiretroviral drugs do), vs.
htm, by increasing our understanding of the mechanisms by which the innate immune
system recognizes, responds to, and neutralizes the complex defense systems of protozoan pathogens.
system has many functions only recently recognized and whose importance is still not universally accepted.
Therefore, based on the promise of heightened immune
responses in the presence of viremia in some patients (as measured by these cytokine assays), some thought that perhaps a good strategy to bolster HIV immunity would be to provide an opportunity for small, controlled quantities of HIV to be made--ostensibly to provide antigen and to drive the immune
How can people optimize their immune
systems with food, vitamins, and exercise?
Giving a patient more white cells doesn't help battle the virus or repair a damaged immune
system in the long run.
OTCBB:PLRS), a cell therapy company dedicated to the commercialization of stem cell products, today announced evidence that its PLX-I cells have proven to be immune
And then, in early 2005, three people who had been given Tysabri developed PML, a rare but lethal disease seen in people whose immune
systems have been suppressed.
Skyler of the University of Miami in Florida is preparing to test antibody therapy for prevention of diabetes in young, outwardly healthy people who show signs that their immune
systems are gearing up for an attack on the pancreas.
Long-term non-progressors have a strong cellular anti-HIV immune
In the future we may have another kind of treatment, immune
-based therapy, which strengthen the immune
system's ability to control HIV, instead of attacking the virus directly.
But sooner or later your immune
system will start to wind down.
