Fish Oil and Vitamin D Supplements May Not Help Prevent Heart Attacks and Cancer, Study Says
There’s good evidence that fish oil supplements may lower the risk of second heart events — like a heart attack or stroke — in people with heart disease, but few rigorous studies have investigated whether the supplement can help people to lower their risk of having a heart event in the first place. And while some data suggests that people with lower levels of vitamin D tend to have higher rates of heart disease and cancer, the evidence isn’t solid. Now, a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine and presented at the annual meeting of the American Heart Association offers more findi...

If you're suffering from intestinal upset, you might be tempted to eliminate gluten from your diet. Many people follow gluten-free diets not because they have celiac disease, an autoimmune condition triggered by sensitivity to the grain component, but because they think avoiding it improves their digestive health.

(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) B cells are important in helping the immune system fight pathogens. However, in the case of the neurological autoimmune disease Multiple sclerosis (MS) they can damage nerve tissue.

An autoimmune disease variant of IgG1 modulates B cell activation and differentiation
The maintenance of autoreactive B cells in a quiescent state is crucial for preventing autoimmunity. Here we identify a variant of human immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) with a Gly396->Arg substitution (hIgG1-G396R), which positively correlates with systemic lupus erythematosus. In induced lupus models, murine homolog Gly390->Arg (G390R) knockin mice generate excessive numbers of plasma cells, leading to a burst of broad-spectrum autoantibodies. This enhanced production of antibodies is also observed in hapten-immunized G390R mice, as well as in influenza-vaccinated human G396R homozygous carriers. This variant potentiates t...
