In the immune system, lymphocyte activation by antigen is followed by cell proliferation and induction of effector functions. Subsequently, physiologic cell-death signals are induced, resulting in removal of expanded effector-cell populations, to maintain homeostasis. Caspases are intracellular...
There have been many recent advances in our understanding of the molecular basis of neutropenia disorders, primarily through advances in genetic analysis of inherited disorders. Molecular and cellular studies now suggest that accelerated apoptosis of neutrophil precursors in the bone marrow is...
Biological therapeutics have been utilized in the past several years for the treatment of various autoimmune, cardiovascular, and neoplastic conditions. As these agents target both pathologic and physiologic components of inflammatory and immune systems, the scientific community has been...
Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) represents a syndrome comprising the most severe forms of inherited immunodeficiencies. Defects in cytokine signaling pathways can result in impaired development of lymphoid cells and/or defective functioning of these cells, and most cases of SCID result...
Antimicrobial peptides are diverse and evolutionarily ancient molecules produced by all living organisms. Peptides belonging to the cathelicidin and defensin gene families exhibit an immune strategy as they defend against infection by inhibiting microbial survival, and modify hosts through...
