Nontoxic therapy shows encouraging results in blood samples from lupus patients
Northwestern Medicine® scientists have successfully tested a nontoxic therapy that suppresses Lupus in blood samples of people with the autoimmune disease. This is a positive step toward one day developing a vaccine-like therapy that could keep Lupus in remission in the human body without the use of toxic drugs. The study was published online in Clinical Immunology, the journal of the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies... (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

New understanding, warning signs, and potential treatments for multiple sclerosis
Scientists are gaining a new level of understanding of multiple sclerosis (MS) that may lead to new treatments and approaches to controlling the chronic disease, according to new research released at Neuroscience 2013, the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience and the world's largest source of emerging news about brain science and health. MS is a severe, often crippling, autoimmune disease caused by the body's immune system attacking the nervous system. Today, more than two million people worldwide suffer from MS and other neuroinflammatory diseases... (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

Discovery could accelerate body's response to infection, autoimmune disorders
UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers report that disrupting the light-dark cycle of mice increased their susceptibility to inflammatory disease, indicating that the production of a key immune cell is controlled by the body's circadian clock. The study published in the journal Science identifies a previously hidden pathway by which the body's circadian clock controls the numbers of key inflammatory cells called interleukin-17-producing CD4+ T helper cells (TH17)...

Liver tropism is key for B cell deletion immunotherapy
Antibodies against the B cell surface protein CD20 have been used successfully to treat B cell-mediated autoimmune diseases and lymphomas. Antibody binding receptors, called Fc receptors, on other immune cells bind anti-CD20 on coated B cells, which induces B cell deletion through a mechanism that is not clearly understood. In this issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, Philippe Bousse and colleagues at the Pasteur Institute in Paris described the fate of B cells in live mice after treatment with anti-CD20 antibodies...

Researchers from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center have identified new proteins that control the function of critical immune cell subsets called T-cells, which are responsible for a serious and often deadly side effect of lifesaving bone marrow transplants. These new proteins have not previously been associated with T-cell responses.

Selective Detection of Phagocytic Phase of Apoptosis in Fixed Tissue Sections
Degradation of apoptotic cells is finalized during the phagocytic waste-management phase of apoptosis. This eliminates genetic material present in dying cells which often contain pathological, viral, or cancerous DNA. In the waste-management phase, chromatin of apoptotic cells is engulfed and digested by professional phagocytes or surrounding tissue cells. This process is critical for the efficient completion of apoptosis and its detection is necessary in research on cancer and autoimmune diseases where clearance of dying cells plays the central role. Here we present a rapid and simple fluorescence technique for visualizat...

Psoriasis drug tested as type 1 diabetes treatment
Conclusion This small phase II trial has shown some improvement with alefacept compared with placebo in people with newly diagnosed diabetes. The fact that the drug did not produce significant improvements in the study’s main outcome may be because the study had to be stopped early, and was not large enough to show an effect. The researchers had calculated that they would need 66 patients to show an effect of the size they expected, but they only managed to enroll 49 people. The authors note that longer term follow up is needed to confirm the findings, as there is quite a lot of variability between people with type 1 dia...

Idiotype-Specific Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) for Therapy of Autoimmune Diseases
Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is used successfully for therapy of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, especially in cases of conventional therapy resistance. Within the broad spectrum of immunomodulatory activities of IVIG in vitro and in vivo, the anti-idiotypic activity, neutralizing the autoimmune disease related idiotypes, is one of the main mechanism. We and others have proven that from the IVIG composition, diverse fractions of autoimmune disease specific IVIG can be affinity purified (sIVIG). This sIVIG was shown to be more efficient than the whole compound of IVIG in experimental animal models of autoimmune d...
