Myeloid cells can suppress the immune response, allowing ****** cancer cells to metastasize in the brain and form secondary tumor sites.
A new intranasal delivery system shows promise in reducing neuroinflammation and slowing the progression of multiple sclerosis.
Girls who are abused in early life have higher levels of inflammation than boys who are maltreated and other children who did not experience abuse.
Parkinson’s patients carrying mutations in PINK1 and Parkin genes have increased levels of circulating interleukin 6 and mitochondrial DNA. The findings strengthen a link between genetic risk factors from Parkinson’s disease and inflammation.
Mouse study reveals the choroid plexus can act as a conduit for inflammation that can arise from maternal inflammation, impacting fetal brain development.
Researchers have identified a bio-chemical circuit that supports neuron-microglia communication. When neurons are active, they release ATP. Microglia sense extracellular ATP and the compound draws the immune cell toward the neuron.
Mutations in the inflammatory RIPK1 gene have been identified in people with obesity. The variation caused an increased amount of the gene in fat tissue. This increased risk of obesity.
A combination of the Zika virus and Chikungunya, two mosquito-borne infections, increase stroke risk, a new study reports.
Gamma interferons, a type of immune cell that induces and modulates several immune system responses, may also play a role in preventing depression.
Depression and anxiety have different biochemical links to inflammation and lipid metabolism. Those with depression have greater levels of inflammation and different types and amounts of lipids in their blood compared to those with anxiety. The metabol…
