New class of drug targets skin cancer
A new class of drug targeting skin cancer's genetic material has been successfully tested in humans for the first time, opening the way to new treatments for a range of conditions from skin cancers to eye diseases. View News Article (2013-05-07)

Effect of different oxygen saturation levels on death or disability in extremely preterm infants
In a randomized trial performed to help resolve the uncertainty about the optimal oxygen saturation therapy in extremely preterm infants, researchers found that targeting saturations of 85 percent to 89 percent compared with 91 percent to 95 percent had no significant effect on the rate of death or disability at 18 months. View News Article (2013-05-06)

Study finds key protein for firing up central nervous system inflammation
Scientists have identified an influential link in a chain of events that leads to autoimmune inflammation of the central nervous system in a mouse model of multiple sclerosis (MS). View News Article (2013-05-02)

International study finds new genetic links to juvenile arthritis
Researchers report in Nature Genetics they have increased the number of confirmed genes linked to juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) from three to 17 - a finding that will clarify how JIA fits into the spectrum of autoimmune disorders and help identify potential treatment targets. View News Article (2013-04-25)

Obesity without the health problems? There could be a way
Obesity is linked to the widespread epidemics of diabetes and heart disease that plague society, but a lesser-known fact is that the weight can also lead to autoimmune disease. View News Article (2013-04-05)

Hunger-spiking neurons could help control autoimmune diseases
Neurons that control hunger in the central nervous system also regulate immune cell functions, implicating eating behavior as a defense against infections and autoimmune disease development. View News Article (2013-03-26)

Did evolution give us inflammatory disease?
In new research published in the April 4, 2013 issue of The American Journal of Human Genetics, researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) demonstrate that some variants in our genes that could put a person at risk for inflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease or rheumatoid arthritis, have been the target of natural selection over the course of human history.  View News Article (2013-03-25)

Study reveals potential immune benefits of vitamin D supplements in healthy individuals
Research from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) shows that improving vitamin D status by increasing its level in the blood could have a number of non-skeletal health benefits. View News Article (2013-03-21)

Immune cells cluster and communicate 'like bees,' researcher says
The immune system's T cells, while coordinating responses to diseases and vaccines, act like honey bees sharing information about the best honey sources, according to a new study by scientists at UC San Francisco.  View News Article (2013-03-14)

Study: Brain injury may be autoimmune phenomenon, like multiple sclerosis
Most scientists are starting to agree that repeat, sub-concussive hits to the head are dangerous and linked to neurological disorders later in life. A new collaborative study, though, attempted to find out why - and discovered that damage to the blood-brain barrier and the resulting autoimmune response might be the culprit.  View News Article (2013-03-07)
