Optimism High for Mesothelioma Immunotherapy Clinical Trial in Europe
A novel clinical trial aiming to train the immune system to recognize and attack pleural mesothelioma tumor cells has opened with considerable optimism across five European countries. The randomized phase II/III study is designed to measure the efficacy and anti-tumor activity of MesoPher, a vaccine combining a patient’s own dendritic immune cells with a specially engineered cell line. The multicenter study, which is hoping for 235 participants, has opened in Antwerp, Belgium; Lille, France; Ancona, Italy; Amsterdam and Rotterdam, Netherlands and Leicester, England. “There is hope, a lot of hope, with this stud...

Rare disease gives new insight into regulatory T cell function
(Karolinska Institutet) An international study led from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden provides new insights into the regulatory T cells' role in protecting against autoimmune disease. By mapping the targets of the immune system in patients with the rare disease IPEX, they were able to show that regulatory T cells control immunotolerance in the gut. The results are published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Scratching the skin primes the gut for allergic reactions to food, mouse study suggests
(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) Scratching the skin triggers a series of immune responses culminating in an increased number of activated mast cells -- immune cells involved in allergic reactions -- in the small intestine, according to research conducted in mice. This newly identified skin-gut communication helps illuminate the relationship between food allergy and atopic dermatitis (a type of eczema), a disease characterized by dry, itchy skin. The NIAID-supported study was led by researchers at Boston Children's Hospital. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

$17 million grant will explore immune cells in inaccessible tissues of the human body
(University of Alabama at Birmingham) Researchers will receive $17.8 million in federal funding to attack a key 'knowledge gap' in human immunology -- how B cells and antibody-secreting cells that reside in tissues and organs differ from those found in blood. It is an exploration never undertaken in a systematic way, studying many individual people. These unknown differences may alter resistance to infections, contribute to autoimmune disease and play a role in rejection of transplanted organs, including proposed xenotransplants from pigs.

Researchers used an experimental gene therapy to develop a possible treatment for a rare and deadly immune disorder known as “bubble boy” disease, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced Wednesday. Because of a gene mutation, babies who are born with X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (X-SCID) do not develop immune cells properly, leaving them highly susceptible to infections. The condition, which strikes up to one in 50,000 newborns, primarily affects boys and requires extreme measures to prevent infection. In one famous case, a boy with SCID, David Vetter, lived in a sterile plastic “bu...

(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is usually effective at suppressing HIV, allowing the immune system to recover by preventing the virus from destroying CD4+ T cells. Scientists have now identified a rare, paradoxical response to ART called extreme immune decline, or EXID. Five individuals evaluated at the NIAID experienced a significant decline in CD4+ T cell levels despite suppression of HIV below detectable levels for more than three years, according to a report published in JCI Insight.
