Abstract Recent results show that immune responses can be induced in neonatal mice. Do they really refute the traditional view that the ability to discriminate between ‘self' and ‘non-self' is a fundamental property of the immune system?

An innate view of human pregnancy.
TLDR
Gavin Sacks and colleagues draw attention to substantial and contrasting changes in the maternal innate system and hypothesize that its function and that of monocytes in particular, has a central role in the mothers-fetal relationship. Expand
NKG2D–MICA Interaction: A Paradigm Shift in Innate Recognition
The way in which immune cells recognize their targets has long been a subject of intense research in the immunological community. The discovery of Abs and identification of the TCR attest to theExpand
There is only one immune system! The view from immunopathology.
TLDR
In every response, whether positive or negative, the factors mobilized and the balance between protection and damage depend upon the quality, quantity, location, and timing of immunogen presentation, as well as upon properties of the host. Expand

  • Transplant infectious disease : an official journal of the Transplantation Society

TLDR
An alternative approach to transplantation is reviewed that focuses on tissue injury as the instigator of graft rejection and employs physiological mechanisms of tolerance to avoid graft loss and the rationale behind the use of anti‐CD154 antibody treatment is highlighted. Expand
Immunological self/nonself discrimination

The hypothesis is presented that immunological integration of nonefficacious vs efficacious T cell antigen receptor (TCR) signals are foundational for self/nonself discrimination and that multipleExpand
Protective autoantibodies in the rheumatic diseases: lessons for therapy
TLDR
A class of naturally arising regulatory IgM autoantibodies to oxidation-associated neo-antigens enhance the capacity for the phagocytic clearance of host cells affected by programmed death pathways and suppress key signalling pathways in the innate immune system involved in the control and resolution of inflammatory responses.

The danger theory: 20 years later
TLDR
The danger theory vis-à-vis recent experimental data on innate immunity, transplantation, cancers and tolerance to foreign entities, and try to elucidate more clearly whether danger is well defined. Expand
The damage-response framework of microbial pathogenesis
TLDR
A new theoretical approach to understanding microbial pathogenesis, known as the 'damage-response' framework, is proposed, which aims to address the impediment to studies of host–microorganism interactions. Expand

Multiple peripheral self-tolerance mechanisms ensure that any autoreactive cells that escape negative selection in the thymus are unable to cause a damaging response to their cognate antigens in theExpand

TLDR
Given that the immune system has been cobbled together throughout evolution and uses a diverse array of innate and adaptive defense mechanisms, it may not be possible to account for immunity within one “paradigm” or another. Expand

Neonatal Tolerance Revisited: Turning on Newborn T Cells with Dendritic Cells
TLDR
Reexamination of the classic Neonatal tolerance experiments showed that tolerance is not an intrinsic property of the newborn immune system, but that the nature of the antigen-presenting cell determines whether the outcome is neonatal tolerance or immunization. Expand
The immune system evolved to discriminate infectious nonself from noninfectious self.
TLDR
It is argued that the requirement for two signals to initiate the adaptive immune response may reflect the evolutionary history of host defences. Expand
Tolerance, danger, and the extended family.
  • P. Matzinger
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Annual review of immunology
  • 1994
TLDR
The possibility that the immune system does not care about self and non-self, that its primary driving force is the need to detect and protect against danger, and that it does not do the job alone, but receives positive and negative communications from an extended network of other bodily tissues is discussed.

Induction of TH1 and TH2 Immunity in Neonatal Mice
TLDR
The classic system for induction of neonatal tolerance to protein antigens was reexamined in mice and the presumably tolerogenic protocol was found to trigger a vigorous T helper cell type 2 (TH2) immune response. Expand
Signals and signs for lymphocyte responses
TLDR
The response capabilities of T cells are more flexible than originally believed, and much of this flexibility comes from the interplay of TCR signals and signs from the environment. Expand
Induction of Protective CTL Responses in Newborn Mice by a Murine Retrovirus
TLDR
The inability of neonates to develop a CTL response to high doses of virus was not the result of immunological immaturity but correlated with the induction of a nonprotective type 2 cytokine response, suggesting the initial viral dose is critical in the development of protective immunity in newborns.

  • C. Goodnow

  • 1996
TLDR
Self-reactive cells are retained with a variety of conditional and potentially flexible restraints, altering susceptibility to autoimmune disease and to infection by genetic or environmental differences either in the way antigens are presented, in the tuning molecules that adjust triggering set points for lymphocyte responses to antigen, or in the effector molecules that eliminate, retain, or expand particular clones.

‘Actively Acquired Tolerance’ of Foreign Cells
The experiments to be described in this article provide a solution—at present only a ‘laboratory’ solution—of the problem of how to make tissue homografts immunologically acceptable to hosts whichExpand
Does T-cell tolerance require a dedicated antigen-presenting cell?
TLDR
It is found that dendritic cells from spleen, which are the most potent activators of mature T cells are also the most powerful inactivators of young developing T cells, suggesting that it is not the antigen-presenting cell which determines whether a T-cell responds or dies, but the T- cell itself or its thymic environment.

TLDR
A model of cell interaction is produced which will account for reactivity is much higher between different strains within a species than between species, in spite of the much greater antigenic disparity in the second case, and a very high proportion of cells may respond to allogeneic stimuli.
