Vitamin C essential for immune cell function

Investigations carried out at the La Jolla institute for Immunology (LJI) Show that the combination of vitamin C and TET proteins are essential for the proper function of regulatory T-cells (Tregs). Regulatory T cells help control inflammation and autoimmunity in the body. Tregs are so important, in fact, that scientists are working to generate stable induced Tregs (iTregs) in vitro […]

Antibody-targeted immunotoxins could help treat liver fibrosis

Effectively, this represents the use of an antibody-drug conjugate to target a feature of diseased tissue, an approach that is already in use in the management of solid tumours. Chronic alcohol […]

Protein disguise could be new target for cancer immunotherapy
