AbstractPurpose of reviewDrug hypersensitivity reactions constitute an unpredictable, serious problem for health care systems as they interfere with drug treatment, limit therapeutic options, and may be life-threatening. In addition to specific patient factors, they are also influenced by a genetic component. Indeed, a considerable body of knowledge supports the participation of genetic variants in their underlying mechanisms.Recent findingsLatest research on this topic confirms the involvement of specific HLA alleles in non-immediate reactions. Two well-known examples are the HLA-B*58:01 allele in severe allopurinol-trigg...

NIH Director ’ s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series Dr. Hubbell uses biomaterials and protein engineering approaches to investigate topics in regenerative medicine and immunotherapeutics. In regenerative medicine, he focuses on biomaterial matrices that mimic the extracellular matrix and on growth factor - extracellular matrix interactions, working in a variety of animal models of regenerative medicine. In immunotherapeutics, he focuses on nanomaterials in vaccines that target lymphoid-resident antigen presenting cells and on protein engineering approaches to deliver antigen to the spleen and liver for inverse vaccin...
