The discovery of a new signaling pathway raises hope for finding new ways of controlling allergic inflammation

Summary: Type 2 immunity plays a vital role in sensing allergens and parasites and initiating an immune response against them. It causes an influx of eosinophil, and early release of IL-33 is characteristic of such a response. However, its dysregulation is associated with allergic conditions like asthma, eczema, rhinitis, and even anaphylactic shock. To date,… Continue reading The discovery of a new signaling pathway raises hope for finding new ways of controlling allergic inflammation

Metabolic Signals And Innate Immune Activation In Obesity

The interplay between immunity, inflammation, and metabolic changes is a growing field of research. Exciting new evidence is emerging with regard to their role in the regulation of metabolism and the activation of inflammatory pathways during the progression of metabolic disorders such as Type 2 Diabetes and Atherosclerosis. The innate immune system The innate immune… Continue reading Metabolic Signals And Innate Immune Activation In Obesity
