New Peanut Allergy Treatment Shows Effectiveness and Safety

University of North Carolina School of Medicine

Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) trial participants tolerated substantially more peanut protein than is common through accidental exposure. UNC School of Medicine researchers say SLIT (a tiny bit of liquid under the tongue) provides a good cushion of protection and a strong safety signal.

How do Interactions between Gut Bacteria and Fungi Exacerbate Crohn’s Disease?

Case Western Reserve University

Scientists have known that bacteria in the gut, along with environmental and genetic factors, contribute to the debilitating intestinal ailment of Crohn’s disease (CD). But in 2016, Mahmoud A Ghannoum, PhD, FAAM, FIDSA, professor and director of the Center for Medical Mycology at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, was the first to identify a specific fungus in humans that interacted with bacteria in the development of the disease. Now, to learn precisely how that fungus interacts with bacteria to trigger CD, Ghannoum has received a five-year, $3M grant from the National Institutes of Health. His investigation will involve innovative molecular and cellular technologies, to delete specific genes in the fungus and note the effects on the inflammation that is a marker for CD using powerful microscopic analysis.
