The Immunology Science Round Up

Circular RNA Vaccines Against SARS-CoV-2 Variants – Circular RNA vaccines enable effective protection against SARS-CoV-2 in mice and monkeys.

CD20+ T Cells in Multiple Sclerosis – Scientists found that expansion of CD20+ T cells contributes to the inflammatory process in patients with multiple sclerosis and mice with autoimmune encephalomyelitis.

Neutrophils in Wound Healing– Neutrophils have an essential role in transferring matrix into wounds through heat shock–integrin signaling.

Spinal Microglia Promote Pain Recovery – Scientists identified a CD11c+ spinal microglia population that appears after pain development and is essential for recovery from neuropathic pain.
