A viral protein of the Epstein-Barr virus previously thought to mimic immune cell receptor signaling actually rewires intracellular signaling in infected cells, promoting viral cell survival and proliferation.
Treatment-resistant breast cancer could be made vulnerable to immunotherapy by flipping a metabolic “switch,” according to a new Northwestern Medicine study.
Northwestern investigators have developed a novel vaccine that utilizes a specialized group of B-cells to promote anti-tumor immunity against glioblastoma.
Northwestern Medicine investigators have discovered that a specialized protein associated with the microtubules of a cell helps facilitate and regulate early stages of HIV infection.
Using an artificial intelligence cell classification technique, Northwestern Medicine investigators have found that viruses can control structural and genetic polarity inside the cell nucleus.
Blocking the frontline immune response could improve vaccines against viral diseases such as coronaviruses, according to a Northwestern Medicine study.
An emerging cancer treatment also helps prevent cells from turning into viral factories by interfering with HIV infection processes inside the cell, according to a recent study.
A drug originally designed as cancer therapy virtually eliminated allergic reactions in moderate cases and significantly lessened the risk of death in severe cases, according to a new study in animal models.
A specialized subset of rare immune cells called plasmacytoid dendritic cells may promote antitumor immunity, according to a Northwestern Medicine study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
