    The Hotter Your Body, Lesser You are Prone to Tumor

    The hotter your body, lesser you are prone to infection, wound and tumors. A new research led by the researchers at the Universities of Warwick and Manchester demonstrated that little rise in temperature of your body fastens the cellular clock whose function is to turn the gene on and off in response to infection. This new finding can help researchers…

    Pseudomonas Communicate in Groups to Escape from Antibiotics

    A new study led by the team of scientists from the University of Notre Dame and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has found a new defense mechanism used by the bacterium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa to communicate in groups to avoid antibiotics. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a pathogen causing diseases like pneumonia, sepsis and other infections. On an encounter with antibiotics, pathogen produces a…

    Molecule Initiating Memory T Cell Development

    A new research at The Scripps Research Institute has opened the chapter of the enigma that how memory T cells originate.  Memory T cells protect against previously encountered pathogens, but their origins are unclear. Memory T cells are a subset of infection- and cancer-fighting T cells. Memory T cells have become “experienced” by having encountered antigen during a prior infection,…

    New Approach To Stop HIV Transmission Using Vaginal Implant Tool

    HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus which attacks the body’s immune system and destroys certain T cells called CD4+ which is one of the important immune cells of the body. In a University of Waterloo, scientists have developed a new tool which is a vaginal implant to protect women from HIV infection. Unlike other methods of HIV prevention like anti-HIV…

    Signaling Pathway In Colon May Induce Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    A new research led by Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU)  discovered the importance of cell signaling pathway in the growth of dysregulated immune cells which in turn induces inflammation in the colon.

    Bacteria May Stimulate Pancreatic Cancer by Inhibiting Immune System

    In a new study, scientists discovered that bacteria suppress the immune system which in turn promotes pancreatic cancer. The research proposes that targeting the microbiome may make immunotherapy effective against pancreatic cancer. In many types of cancer like liver and colorectal cancer, gut microbiome is studied and it has been observed that it affects the development of cancer. The gut…

    Helpful B cells Assisting Neurons in Their Development

    A new study led by researchers at Osaka University has added an surprising information about neuron development presenting that immune cells may play a key role in helping myelin to form around the newly minted neuron. This study was published in Nature Neuroscience. Neurons are basic unit of the nervous system which are the specialized cells that communicate using electrical signals. Every…

    A New Approach To Boost Immune System Using Personal Cancer Vaccine

    Every cell in our body presents part of its peptide repertoire to our immune system so that it can distinguish between self and non-self-cell. As cancer cells unceasingly mutate their DNA as well as produce altered form of normal proteins that having small changes in their peptide sequences.

    How Viruses Deactivate The Immune System

    A new study done in McGill University have revealed a molecular mechanism which can give an answer to the question that how the virus is dodging the immune system and causing chronic infections, such as HIV or hepatitis c virus.
