Point of Care Diagnostics - A Cautious Revolution
Advances in molecular biology, coupled with the miniaturization and improved sensitivity of assays and devices in general, have enabled a new wave of point-of-care (POC) or “bedside” diagnostics.
Anti-Inflammatory Drugs Could Strengthen Airway Immunity
Mold toxins can weaken the airways' clearing mechanisms and immunity, but PKC inhibitors showed promise as a treatment.
Antibodies Paving the Way to HIV Vaccine
Researchers uncover factors responsible for the formation of broadly neutralizing HIV antibodies in humans.
Vaccine Against Common Cold Achievable
Researchers suggest that a vaccine against rhinoviruses is possible using variant virus vaccines.
Treating Sepsis with Marine Mitochondria
Mitochondrial alternative oxidase from a marine animal combats bacterial sepsis.
Iron Nanoparticles Make Immune Cells Attack Cancer
Researchers accidentally discover that nanoparticles invented for anemia treatment can trigger the immune system’s ability to destroy tumor cells.
Uncovering Cancer’s ‘Invisibility Cloak’
Researchers discover cancer cell mechanism to become invisible to the body's immune system.
Culex Mosquitoes Do Not Transmit Zika
A study of the Culex species mosquito appears to show that the species does not transmit Zika virus.
Molecular Switch Aids Immune Therapy
Researchers identify strategy to maximise effectiveness of immune therapy through molecular switch controlling immune suppression.
Bacteria Use Ranking Strategy to Fight Off Viruses

Gavin Spickett, published by Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780198528661

The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Immunology and Allergy is a practical and clinically relevant guide to assist with the diagnosis and management of immunological/allergic disease, and the correct selection and interpretation of immunological tests. This new edition reflects the significant developments that have occurred in the field over recent years. Major revisions have been made to the section on primary immunodeficiencies to demonstrate the advances in understanding genetics, tissue typing, and therapeutics. The first section covers clinical diseases, including primary and secondary immunodeficiencies, allergic disease, autoimmunity and connective tissue diseases, and vasculitis. It gives guidance on test selection and interpretation for both diagnosis and monitoring. The second section covers diagnostic tests, summarizing the methodology and pros and cons of each.
