Researchers shed light on pathway from virus to brain disease
Why people on immunosuppressant drugs for autoimmune conditions have a higher incidence of an often-fatal brain disease may be linked to a mutation in a common virus, according to researchers at Penn State College of Medicine. (2016-05-18)

Autoimmune disease may be linked to heightened dementia risk
Autoimmune disease may be linked to a heightened risk of dementia, indicates a large long term study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health. (2017-03-01)

Breakthrough by scientists finds arthritis drug could treat blood cancer patients
University of Sheffield scientists discover drug used for arthritis could be used to treat blood cancer. Polycythemia vera, a type of blood cancer, affects 3,000 people a year. The breakthrough offers an affordable and effective treatment. (2017-08-03)

Study investigates rates of adverse events for common rheumatoid arthritis drug
Investigators have been able to far more accurately determine rates of adverse events for people taking methotrexate, finding small-to-moderate elevations in risks for skin cancer, gastrointestinal, infectious, lung, and blood adverse events. (2020-02-17)

How the skin becomes inflamed
Publishing online this week in Cell Host & Microbe, researchers at Johns Hopkins report the discovery of a key underlying immune mechanism that explains why to how our skin becomes inflamed from conditions such as atopic dermatitis, more commonly known as eczema. Toxin-producing bacteria on the surface of our skin induces a protein that causes our own cells to react and cause inflammation. (2017-11-08)

Promoting wound repair
Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have identified a major role in promoting wound repair played by a mysterious type of immune cell that resides mainly in the skin and gut--the gamma-delta T cell. The findings, published in the current issue of the journal Science, should be important for scientists who are interested in treating diseases that arise from epithelial cell disorders, like asthma, psoriasis, cancers, and inflammatory bowel disease.

Green tea linked to skin cell rejuvenation
Research into the health-promoting properties of green tea is yielding information that may lead to new treatments for skin diseases and wounds. (2003-04-24)

Study highlights possible Achilles' heel in key immune memory cells
Genes involved in lipid metabolism are highly active in TRM cells, roughly 20- to 30-fold more active than in other types of T-cells. (2017-03-09)

Salt-inducible kinases may have therapeutic potential for autoimmune diseases
A new research report appearing in the May 2016 issue of the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, suggests that specific enzymes, called 'salt-inducible kinases,' may be able to help curb runaway inflammation associated with autoimmune diseases like Crohn's disease, arthritis, and psoriasis. (2016-04-29)

Aluminum foil lamps outshine incandescent lights
Researchers at the University of Illinois are developing panels of microcavity plasma lamps that may soon brighten people's lives. The thin, lightweight panels could be used for residential and commercial lighting, and for certain types of biomedical applications. (2007-06-04)

Discovery of a new signaling mechanism may lead to novel anti-inflammatory therapy
A team of researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine has uncovered a new signaling mechanism used to activate protein kinases that are critical for the body's inflammatory response. (2008-07-17)

Anticancer compound found in American mayapple
A common weed called American mayapple may soon offer an alternative to an Asian cousin that's been harvested almost to extinction because of its anti-cancer properties. The near-extinct Asian plant, Podophyllyum emodi, produces podophyllotoxin, a compound used in manufacturing etoposide, the active ingredient in a drug used for treating lung and testicular cancer. Podophyllyum emodi is a cousin of the common mayapple weed found in the United States. (2009-09-04)

Phosphorylation of Regnase-1 lets IL-17 run amok
A research team led by Osaka University found that the cytokine interleukin (IL)-17 triggers the phosphorylation of mRNA-degrading enzyme Regnase-1, resulting in excessive inflammation. By blocking this phosphorylation, novel therapies may be able to prevent the development or severity of IL-17-associated autoimmune diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and psoriasis. (2019-06-03)

What happens when we sunburn
The biological mechanism of sunburn - the reddish, painful, protective immune response from ultraviolet (UV) radiation - is a consequence of RNA damage to skin cells, report researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and elsewhere in the July 8, 2012 Advance Online Publication of Nature Medicine. (2012-07-08)
