The search is on for for vaccine adjuvants that boost the innate immune response and complement existing adjuvants. Mast cell activators may be one option (pages 536–541). 
Role of mast cells and probiotics in the regulation of intestinal barrier function
The intestinal mucosa is the largest contact area and one of the most important barriers to the outside environment. It is highly specialized in aiding us digest and absorb nutrients. It is daily eExpand
New developments in mast cell biology
TLDR
This review focuses on exciting new developments in the field of mast cell biology published in the past year and discusses newly identified functions for mast cells or individual mast cell products in host defense, cardiovascular disease and tumor biology and in settings in which mast cells have anti-inflammatory or immunosuppressive functions.

Interleukin-1 Family Cytokines as Mucosal Vaccine Adjuvants for Induction of Protective Immunity against Influenza Virus
TLDR
It is demonstrated that IL-1 family cytokines are potential mucosal vaccine adjuvants and can induce Ag-specific immune responses for protection against pathogens like influenza virus. Expand
Basophils and Mast Cells
TLDR
Some of the more recent studies that shed new light on the role of mast cells and basophils in health and disease are summarized to provide new challenges and opportunities towards the development of novel therapeutic strategies to augment host protection and modify disease through manipulation of mast cell and basophile function. Expand
Intranasal Immunization with Recombinant HA and Mast Cell Activator C48/80 Elicits Protective Immunity against 2009 Pandemic H1N1 Influenza in Mice
TLDR
The present study demonstrates that the novel vaccine approach of combining recombinant haemagglutinin (HA) protein and mucosal adjuvant C48/80 is safe and effective in eliciting protective immunity in mice. Expand

THE ROLE OF MAST CELLS IN THE SYSTEM OF THE LOCAL IMMUNE AND PHAGOCYTIC PART OF CHILDREN'S PERIODONTIUM
TLDR
It was concluded that immunomodulatory drugs had inductive impact on periodontium reparative processes in the conditions of infl amation through the decrease of basal substance permeability and synthetic processes intensifi cation. Expand

Intranasal Immunization of Mice with Inactivated Virus and Mast Cell Activator C48/80 Elicits Protective Immunity against Influenza H1 but not H5
TLDR
It is demonstrated that intranasal immunization with inactivated H1N1 virus and C48/80 elicited protective immunity against lethal challenge with homologous virus, however, when the immunogen was replaced with inactivation H5N1irus protection was lost. Expand

TLDR
The research that has made it possible for vaccinologists to now be able to choose between a large panel of adjuvants, which potentially can act synergistically, and combine them in formulations that are specifically adapted to each target and to the relevant correlate(s) of protection is discussed.

Mast cells in the development of adaptive immune responses
TLDR
Mast cells may influence the development, intensity and duration of adaptive immune responses that contribute to host defense, allergy and autoimmunity, rather than simply functioning as effector cells in these settings. Expand

It is found that mast cell-associated TNF can contribute significantly to the initial stages of FITC-induced migration of cutaneous or airway DCs. Expand
Mast cells in the promotion and limitation of chronic inflammation
TLDR
Mice that genetically lack mast cells provide a means to investigate the importance of mast cells and specific mast cell functions or products in diverse models of chronic inflammation, and confirmed that mast cells can significantly influence multiple features of chronic inflammatory responses, through diverse effects that can either promote or suppress aspects of these responses.
