Phagocytes versus killer cells

A closer look into the tumour tissue

22-Oct-2019

They are first class at fighting infections. However, neutrophils, specialized phagocytic white blood cells of the immune system, can also promote the growth of cancer. A research team led by Professor Sven Brandau from the Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic of the University Hospital Essen (UK Essen) ...

Immune reaction causes malaria organ damage

Immune cells can be the body's defenders and foes at the same time

21-Oct-2019

Malaria is one of the world's deadliest infectious diseases: a small mosquito bite delivers numerous malaria parasites into the bloodstream. The human body defends itself valiantly against the parasite, which usually results in periodic flu-like symptoms and severe fever. Severe cases of the ...

Nanosecond pulsed electric fields activate immune cells

09-Aug-2019

Nanosecond pulsed electric fields (nsPEFs) produce strong electrical effects by focusing a high powered electrical pulse over a very short period of time. They are attracting attention as a method of physically stimulating matter in various fields, particularly in the life sciences. Recently, ...

Megakaryocytes act as „bouncers“ restraining cell migration in the bone marrow

17-Jul-2019

Scientists at the University Würzburg and University Hospital of Würzburg found that megakaryocytes act as “bouncers” and thus modulate bone marrow niche properties and cell migration dynamics. Hematopoiesis is the process of forming blood cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone marrow. The ...

Escort service: The role of immune cells in the formation of metastases

08-Feb-2019

Tumor cells use a certain type of immune cells, the so-called neutrophils, to enhance their ability to form metastases. Scientists have deciphered the mechanisms of this collaboration and found strategies for blocking them. This is reported by researchers from the University of Basel and the ...

Candida albicans exploits lack of oxygen to cause disease

18-Jan-2019

Scientists from Umeå university have shown how the yeast Candida albicans can modulate and adapt to low oxygen levels in different body niches to cause infection and to harm the host. Studying adaption to hypoxic or anoxic niches is particularly fruitful, since it helps us to understand the ...

Sugars that can modulate the immune system

21-Nov-2018

At present, sugar is under general suspicion of being responsible for many widespread diseases and health problems of mankind, especially in the industrial nations. These are mostly sugars made from glucose or fructose, like our household sugar sucrose. However, sugar is more than just a pure ...

Time-switch for immune cells

11-Sep-2018

Supported by funding from the Austrian Science Fund FWF, a team from the Max F. Perutz Laboratories deciphered the mechanism of the TTP protein as a time-switch for the programmed cell death of white blood cells. A targeted death of these cells prevents an excessive immune reaction, but could ...

Nanoparticles can limit inflammation by distracting the immune system

10-Nov-2017

A surprise finding suggests that an injection of nanoparticles may be able to help fight the immune system when it goes haywire, researchers at the University of Michigan have shown. The nanoparticles divert immune cells that cause inflammation away from an injury site. Inflammation is a ...

Immune cells help rebuild damaged nerves

26-Oct-2017

Immune cells are normally associated with fighting infection but in a new study, scientists have discovered how they also help the nervous system clear debris, clearing the way for nerve regeneration after injury. Researchers from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine showed certain ...
