How IL-6 allows the immune response to develop for a key cell, the T follicular helper

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A preclinical study published in Science Immunology shows how the interplay of two interleukin signaling proteins, IL-6 and IL-2, affects the development of T follicular helper cells and germinal centers. Thus, the research may help guide future disease treatment for autoimmune diseases like lupus.

Bolstering Biopsies: Testing Individual Cells to Guide Treatment

Albert Einstein College of Medicine

In research that could make biopsies more useful for many diseases, scientists have used a powerful new tool to zero in on individual cells in a patient’s diseased organ and reveal the cells’ underlying glitches in gene expression—information that may allow for more precise and effective treatment. The findings, by scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Health System, and other medical institutions, are published online today in Nature Immunology.

Researchers identify early indicators of pregnancy complications in lupus patients

The Rockefeller University Press

A study of pregnant women with systemic lupus erythematosus has identified early changes in the RNA molecules present in the blood that could be used to determine the likelihood of them developing preeclampsia. The study, which will be published April 8 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, may also help researchers develop treatments to prevent other pregnancy complications associated with lupus, including miscarriage and premature birth.
