New populations of lung cells identified which could aid in the treatment of chronic respiratory diseases
New research confirms the existence of two new subpopulations interstitial macrophages (IM), which are crucial to the pulmonary immune system. Published in Nature Communications on August 3, researchers from the Immunophysiology Laboratory of the GIGA Institute at the University of Liege provide insights into the characterization of these IM.  Discuss
Vaccine in development against hypervirulent Klebsiella
Concerns arising over the development of hypervirulent strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae have led researchers to develop an entirely new vaccine to protect against the gram-negative bacteria. A team of researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and VaxNewMo (a startup based in St. Louis) designed the vaccine by genetically manipulating E. coli. The details of the prototype designed were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on August 27th.  Discuss
Success of immunotherapies increased in cancer patients through co-treatment with monoclonal antibodies
A new approach provides evidence that it is possible to break down the protective wall surrounding tumor cells, therefore making immunotherapies more effective in patients with a variety of cancers. This research, funded by Cancer Research UK, was published in the EBioMedicine on August 25th.  Discuss
Detecting HPV in women is improved with the aid of a new molecular approach
A new technique called HPV RNA-Seq can provide a second-line test in HPV-positive patients to reduce unnecessary colposcopies and even be used as a two-in-one test combining HPV typing with triage capabilities. Researchers from Institut Pasteur and the Pathogen Discovery Laboratory in Paris, France published their findings in The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics on August 12, 2019.  Discuss
Large-scale analysis of microbiome reveals new classes of small proteins with implications in drug discovery
Trillion of bacteria reside within our bodies, and scientists are just scratching the surface of understanding the microbiome. Researchers at Stanford School of Medicine have shed light on previously unidentified proteins that may have an important role in human health and advance drug development.  Discuss
