Funding Opportunity PA-19-066 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to determine antigen processing and presentation mechanisms used in the generation of novel peptidic and non-peptidic ligands and to determine the contribution of these unique antigenic ligands to protective immune responses against infectious disease pathogens and/or vaccines; pathogen-associated immune pathogenesis; and/or limit progression or induction of immune-mediated diseases. These studies may facilitate the development of novel tools and reagents to advance design of immune-b...

Funding Opportunity PA-19-067 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to characterize antigen processing and presentation mechanisms used in the generation of novel peptidic and non-peptidic ligands presented by classical and non-classical MHC class I and class II molecules, and to determine the contribution of these unique antigenic ligands to: protective immune responses to infectious pathogens and/or vaccines; pathogen-associated immune pathogenesis; and/or in the induction/progression or prevention of immune-mediated diseases. These studies may faci...

Frequent use of hand sanitizer, instead of soap and water, may lead to fewer respiratory infections, fewer sick days, and less antibiotic use — at least if you’re a toddler. A Spanish study enrolled 911 children who attended day care, from newborns up to three-year-olds, and randomly assigned them to one of three groups. In the control group, parents and caregivers continued usual hand care for the toddlers. In the two intervention groups, children were assigned to either labor-intensive hand sanitizer use or soap and water handwashing. Parents and caregivers were instructed to either apply hand sanitizer or wa...

Checkpoint inhibitor therapies are a demonstrably successful approach to cancer immunotherapy. They suppress a mechanism that normally restrains immune cells from attacking other cells. This mechanism is abused by cancers, alongside a variety of other ways in which the immune system can be subverted or quieted. Any advanced tumor tends to have evolved into a state in which it is ignored or even helped by the immune system. Checkpoint inhibitor therapies are an improvement on chemotherapy when it comes to the trade-off between harming the cancer and harming the patient, as well as in the odds of success, but still present r...
