Serological Dipstick Assay Developed for Melioidosis

The Gram-negative environmental pathogen Burkholderia pseudomallei, causes the severe disease melioidosis. It is highly endemic in southeast Asia and northern Australia, but recent studies suggest that it is also present in many other parts of the world where it is severely underreported. More...

Dual Role Discovered for Interleukin-17A in Autoimmune Uveitis

Autoimmune uveitis (AU) is an inflammatory process of the uveal components of the eye, due to an autoimmune reaction to self-antigens or caused by an innate inflammatory reaction secondary to an external stimulus. It can present as an isolated entity or associated with a systemic autoimmune or autoinflammatory disease. More...

Melatonin Levels in Parkinson’s Patients Linked to Non-Motor Symptoms

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a complex neurodegenerative disease characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the pars compacta (SNpc), resulting in the classic motor manifestations in PD patients. The clinical diagnosis of PD mainly relies on the presence of motor symptoms as the disease progresses. More...

Immunogenomic Landscape of Hematological Malignancies Mapped

The reaction of the body's immune system against cancer can be thought of as a cycle. Cancer cells contain proteins that differ from proteins in other tissue. Their components, known as antigens, have to be presented to the T cells of the immune system by the cancer cells. More...

Cancer Cells Reprogram Immune Cells to Assist in Metastasis

Natural killer (NK) cells, a type of immune cell, are known to limit metastasis by inducing the death of cancer cells, but metastases still form in patients, so there must be ways for cancer cells to escape. More...

Clonal Hematopoiesis of Indeterminate Potential Associated with hsC-Reactive Protein

Clonal hematopoiesis (CH) occurring in normally aging subjects, initially suggested by X-chromosome inactivation studies, is caused by acquired mutations in genes recurrently mutated in hematological cancers, and in non-driver candidates. More...

Fully-Automated Calprotectin Immunoassay Validated for IBD Patients

The incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is increasing. This chronic intestinal inflammation disorder comprises two major forms of inflammation: Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). Distinction between inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) based on clinical symptoms is often difficult. More...
