The Immunology Science Round Up
mRNA Boosters Increase Antibodies but Not Side Effects – A Moderna booster vaccine elicited neutralizing titers that were statistically significantly higher than the peak titers detected after the primary vaccination series.
B Cells in Unexpected Places – Researchers showed that glycan-mediated B cell suppression plays a key role in establishing fetomaternal tolerance in mice.
A Data Analysis Tool to Predict Disease Outcomes – Scientists identified immune cell types associated with increased risk of death from COVID-19.
Tertiary Lymphoid Structures in Renal Cell Cancer – Researchers used spatial transcriptomics to examine B cell responses within tertiary lymphoid structures.
