Initial Immune Response After Dengue Virus Infection Identified

Dengue virus (DENV) is a member of the clinically-relevant Flavivirus genus together with Zika virus, yellow fever virus and others. With four distinct serotypes, DENV is thought to infect between 280 and 550 million people worldwide every year. More...

Immune Microenvironment Changes Contribute to Early-Stage Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a cancer that forms in a type of white blood cell called a plasma cell. Plasma cells help you fight infections by making antibodies that recognize and attack germs. Multiple myeloma causes cancer cells to accumulate in the bone marrow, where they crowd out healthy blood cells. More...

Immune Responses Evaluated for Tick-Borne Encephalitis

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is an important vector-borne infection of the central nervous system (CNS). The majority of all reported cases of TBE occur in adults. However, TBE should also be included in the differential diagnosis of pediatric CNS infections in endemic areas. More...

High-Throughput T Cell Profiling Technique Developed

T cells recognize foreign or aberrant antigens presented by major histocompatibility complex (MHC-I) expressing cells through the T cell receptor (TCR) and is the first critical step towards establishment of protective immunity against viruses and tumors. More...

Antibody Detection Is Critical for COVID-19 Diagnosis

Accurate and fast diagnosis of the causative SARS CoV-2 is important to isolate the patients with COVID-19 timely and stop the epidemics, as well as save people's lives. Viral nucleic acid detection using real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay, which has been developed and used for detection of SARS-CoV-2 rapidly, remains the standard diagnosis of COVID-19.

Blood Biomarkers Help Diagnose Parkinson's Disease

The identification of circulating biomarkers that closely correlate with Parkinson’s disease (PD) has failed several times in the past. A conventional pipeline for biomarker discovery usually contemplates the collection of clinical samples, such as blood, and their analysis by mass spectrometry. More...

Molecular Differences Discovered Among Ovarian Cancer Subgroups

Ovarian cancer is a highly diverse disease with a high rate of overall mortality. High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSC) is the most common and aggressive type of epithelial ovarian cancer, exhibiting high levels of tumor heterogeneity and variable clinical outcomes. More...
