    Researchers distinguish systems behind inflammasome initiation by fungal pathogens

    Researchers at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have identified the mechanisms behind inflammasome activation driven by infection with the fungal pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus. Fungal infection, especially with A. fumigatus, is a leading cause of infection-associated deaths in people with compromised immune systems. The work provides clues to a potential therapeutic approach for treating infectious and

    Putatively juvenile dendritic cells may actuate hearty resistant reactions in young children

    A study by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich researchers demonstrates that putatively immature dendritic cells found in young children are able to induce strong immune responses. Dendritic cells are a vital component of the innate immune system, which represents the body’s first line of defense against infectious agents and tumor cells. Their job is to trigger

    Corning to feature most current product in 3D cell culture portfolio at SLAS2021

    Corning Incorporated will highlight its hottest technologies that support the advancement of 3D cell culture, automation, and drug discovery in this year’s virtual Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) seminar on Jan. 25 through 27. Now more than ever, tools used to ease scale-up, reproducibility, and consistency of 3D cell culture are helping empower

    NIAID sets up a clinical research organization to improve comprehension of child asthma

    This nationwide network will conduct observational studies and clinical trials to improve understanding of asthma and develop prevention and treatment approaches tailored to children of low-income families residing in urban communities. NIAID plans to provide approximately $70 million over seven years to support the CAUSE network. This new initiative expands and extends NIAID’s long-standing attempts

    Researchers develop experimental direct-acting antiviral treatment to treat COVID-19

    An international team of scientists from the Menzies Health Institute Queensland (MHIQ) at Griffith University and from City of Hope, a research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases in the U.S., have developed an experimental direct-acting antiviral therapy to treat COVID-19. Conventional antivirals reduce symptoms and help people recover earlier. Examples
