Latest Research : Immunology : Autoimmune Diseases
First mouse model for auto-inflammatory diseases reveals role for innate immunity
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have developed the first mouse model for auto-inflammatory diseases, disorders that involve the over-activation of the body's innate, primitive immune system. Their study, published early on-line in Cell Immunity on June 4, suggests that the innate – not adaptive – immune system drives auto-inflammatory diseases.

NF-κB mediated bioluminescence- sensitive and early indicator in auto-immune diseases
Current research describes a new method to track the development of autoimmune diseases before the onset of symptoms.

Thymus transplants gives hope to babies with DiGeorge syndrome
Lolita Harding is describing her daughter Dave'yana, who will turn three in September, thanks in large part to a thymus transplant she received at Duke University Medical Center in April 2005 to reconstitute her absent immune system.

IGF-1R implicated in the pathogenesis of Grave's Disease
Investigators at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (LA BioMed) have found evidence that continues to implicate insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF-1R) in the development of Graves’ disease.

Latest Research : Immunology : Autoimmune Diseases : Lupus
Pregnant women with lupus are at higher risk for complications
Women with systemic lupus who become pregnant are at significantly greater risk for death or other medical complications than are pregnant women without lupus, Duke University Medical Center researchers have found in a nationwide study of more than 18 million women.

Latest Research : Immunology : Autoimmune Diseases
Antibody-interleukin complexes stimulate immune responses
The study, which was published in the February 16 issue of the online journal Science Express, showed that these injections caused a massive selective increase in the immune system's two main types of T cells. The findings could also be significant for developing new ways to help patients with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or juvenile diabetes.

Latest Research : Immunology : Autoimmune Diseases : Lupus
Oral Contraceptives in Women with Lupus might be Safe
In a major study funded by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), women with either inactive or stable systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) — a disease in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks and damages healthy tissues of the skin, joints and internal organs — were able to take oral contraceptives without increased risk of flares, or periods of increased disease activity, that characterize the disease. Safe and effective contraception is an issue that many women of childbearing age face. But for women with lupus, doctors have often been hesitant to prescribe one of the most effective forms of contraception — oral contraceptives, or the “pill” — for fear that it might increase disease activity.

Latest Research : Immunology : Autoimmune Diseases : Lupus
Pro-inflammatory HDL (piHDL) is a potential biomarker for lupus atherosclerosis
Groundbreaking research reported at the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology indicates that a certain form of the normally "good" high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol linked to cardiovascular health plays a counterproductive role in people with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and rheumatoid arthritis, promoting atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and heart disease in many of these individuals.

Latest Research : Immunology : Autoimmune Diseases
Chronic infections may create autoimmune response
New research finds the human immune system has foregone evolutionary changes that would allow it to produce better antibodies in less time because the improved antibodies would be far more likely to attack the body's own tissues. The Rice University study finds the immune system has evolved a near-perfect balance for producing antibodies that are both effective against pathogens and unlikely to cause autoimmune disease.

Epratuzumab may Serve as a Potential Treatment Option for SLE
Immunomedics Inc announced patient dosing has begun for the pivotal Phase III clinical trials to further evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Company's lead drug candidate, epratuzumab, for the treatment of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), known as lupus.
