Tiny drug-delivering capsules could sustain transplanted insulin-producing cells.

Researchers have long explored ways to transplant pancreatic islets to treat type I diabetes in the long term to eliminate the need for continuous glucose monitoring and insulin injections. However, … Continue Reading Tiny drug-delivering capsules could sustain transplanted insulin-producing cells.

Study identifies immune cells critical for the development of fibrosis in Crohn’s disease.

It is known that patients with Crohn’s disease have uncontrolled inflammation in their gut, which can lead to intestinal fibrosis and narrowing that can slow or block the movement of … Continue Reading Study identifies immune cells critical for the development of fibrosis in Crohn’s disease.

New class of molecule identified in central role of inflammation and the immune system.

The inflammatory response is an integral part of the innate immune mechanism that is triggered in response to a real or perceived threat to tissue homeostasis, with a primary aim … Continue Reading New class of molecule identified in central role of inflammation and the immune system.

Cell therapy successfully promotes axon remyelination in an animal model.

Demyelinating diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and leukodystrophy, are characterized by damage to the protective myelin sheath that surrounds the axons of neurons. This demyelination can be caused by an … Continue Reading Cell therapy successfully promotes axon remyelination in an animal model.

Novel nanoparticle acts like Trojan horse to halt asthma in animal model.

Allergies are characterized by inappropriate inflammatory responses to benign environmental antigens. Primary clinical approaches to allergic disease consist of symptom control or administration of soluble antigens to skew the immune response … Continue Reading Novel nanoparticle acts like Trojan horse to halt asthma in animal model.
