Virtual Venue

Immunology

T Cells Recognize Recent SARS-CoV-2 Variants

Due to the proofreading ability of the coronavirus (CoV) RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, the evolution of the global SARS-CoV-2 viral population during the current pandemic has been relatively constrained as compared to other endemic RNA viruses that do not possess this ability. More...

Type 1 Diabetes Onset Preceded by Gene Expression Changes

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) results from insufficient insulin production and is thought to result from an immune reaction against the body’s own pancreatic β cells. The exact cause of T1D remains unknown, although asymptomatic islet autoimmunity lasting from weeks to years before diagnosis raises the possibility of intervention before the onset of clinical disease. More...

Serious Infections Prevalent in ANCA-Associated Vasculitis

Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitides (AAV) are among the rheumatic diseases with the highest mortality and morbidity, due to their major multi-organ involvement (lungs, kidneys) and their relapsing nature requiring aggressive immunosuppressive treatment. More...

Immunoassay Developed for Quantitative Detection of Serum Interleukin‐6

Interleukin‐6 (IL‐6) is a multifunctional protein and is primarily produced by macrophages, monocytes, fibroblasts, and T lymphocytes, and plays important roles in immune regulation, hematopoiesis, inflammation, and tumorigenesis. More...

Performance of Five Lipoprotein(a) Immunoassays Evaluated

Increased serum Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is considered an independent, inherited risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), including myocardial infarction and stroke. This risk is believed to be due to pro-atherogenic, pro-inflammatory, and pro-thrombotic properties of the Lp(a) particle More...

Flow-Cytometric Expression of Endoglin Assessed in B-Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a malignant disorder representing clonal expansion and arrest of maturation of lymphoid progenitor cells in the bone marrow, blood, and extramedullary sites. The incidence of ALL generally follows a bimodal distribution, with its first peak occurring in childhood and the second around the age of 50. More...

Toxoplasmosis Immune Status in Pregnancy Determined by Immunochromatography Assay

Toxoplasmosis is a disease that results from infection with the Toxoplasma gondii parasite, one of the world's most common parasites. Infection usually occurs by eating undercooked contaminated meat, exposure from infected cat feces, or mother-to-child transmission during pregnancy. More...
