The Immunology Science Round Up

Coordinating an Antimicrobial Response in Leprosy – In addition to immune cells, cell types such as fibroblasts and keratinocytes can produce antimicrobial molecules in leprosy granulomas.

Modifying RNA Splicing to Enhance Immune Recognition – Scientists used drugs that modulate splicing to induce cancer cells to produce abnormal proteins, fostering recognition by immune cells.

Remodeling the Lymphoid Landscape – Researchers characterized three distinct subsets of lymphoid stromal cells in tonsil tissue and studied their reprogramming in follicular lymphoma.

A One-Two Punch of Immunotherapies – Researchers found that cancer patients who do not respond well to checkpoint inhibition may respond better to drugs that deplete T follicular regulatory cells prior to anti-PD1 therapy.
