Study: First Evidence of Immune Response Targeting Brain Cells in Autism

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

In a paper published in Annals of Neurology, a physician-scientist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), and colleagues report the presence of cellular features consistent with an immune response targeting specialized brain cells in more than two thirds of autistic brains analyzed postmortem. These cellular characteristics – not previously observed in autism – lend critical new insight into autism’s origins and could pave the way to improved diagnosis and treatment for people with this disorder.

Gut Immunity More Developed Before Birth Than Previously Thought

Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

The first comprehensive look at the immune system of the fetal gut shows that it is far more developed before birth, and could help develop new maternal vaccines and understand if we are predisposed to autoimmune diseases before birth.

Striking a balance: a mechanism to control autoimmunity

IMP - Research Institute of Molecular Pathology

The immune system relies on B cells and their ability to make antibodies against an extremely broad range of pathogens. This broad responsiveness bears some risk, as B cells can also turn against healthy tissue - a phenomenon called autoimmunity. Scientists from the lab of Meinrad Busslinger now reported in the journal "Nature Immunology" how the protein lkaros orchestrates the fine balance between B cell silencing and activation - and thereby controls autoimmunity.

Pivotal Role Found for IgC Autoantibodies in IgA Nephropathy

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A study largely validates that immunoglobulin IgG is a crucial part of the pathogenic immunodeposits in kidneys of patients with IgA nephropathy. The routine clinical test that identifies the presence of IgA in all cases of IgA nephropathy fails to show IgG in 50 to 80 percent of biopsies.
