Immunology is a science in which most of the researchers presently involved are young in age. This is not because immunology is a recent science but because the accessibility of new techniques now makes it possible to tackle 'old' as well as new questions in a more efficient manner. A by-product of this expansion of the field of immunology has also been the creation of a lack of feeling of continuity, and computer searches reaching a mere 5 years back tend to discourage a feeling for concepts… 

The Intriguing History of Cancer Immunotherapy

The following paper tracks cancer immunotherapy from its known beginnings up until recent events, including the 2018 Nobel Prize award to James Allison and Tasuku Honjo for their meticulous work on checkpoint molecules as potential therapeutic targets.

Before Virus, After Virus: A Reckoning

Intravenous immunoglobulin therapy: a snapshot for the internist

A comprehensive review of the on- and off-label applications of intravenous immunoglobulins is presented and a guide for the internist how to minimize the risk of adverse reactions and manage them is provided.

Creating molecules that modulate immune responses

How the immune system can be modulated using chemical approaches, with a focus on the chemical modification and application of antibodies, one of the major components of the immune defence system is described.

pH-responsive antibodies for therapeutic applications

The pH-responsive antibodies possess strong treatment potential and are valuable in targeting acidified tumor microenvironment because of improved spatial persistence and reduced on-target off-tumor toxicities.

Management of Humoral Primary Immunodeficiencies in Adults

Clinical phenotype and the presence of complications should guide the dosage of immunoglobulin replacement therapy and the choice between intravenous (IVIG) and subcutaneous (SCIg) route of administration.

Application of Immunohistochemistry in Basic and Clinical Studies.

Although immunohistochemistry has a vast application in basic and clinical studies, this chapter focuses on its application in biomarker study, particularly in biomarkers that related to cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and drug development.

Immunology: The science of self-nonself discrimination

Well, someone can decide by themselves what they want to do and need to do but sometimes, that kind of person will need some immunology the science of self nonself discrimination references. People

Transplantation of antibody-forming cells in lethally irradiated mice.

In two in vivo biologic tests, there was a relative decrease in the ability of marrow and spleen cells from presensitized donors to protect lethally irradiated isologous mice and in a homologous transfer of cells, marrow andSpleensitized cells from donors sensitized to thehomologous recipient showed a detrimental effect when transplanted into lethal irradiated homologously mice.

Antibody formation against Vibrio cholerae by mesenteric lymph node cell transfer.

The intravenous transfer of mesenteric lymph node cells from intragastrically immunized donors led to the appearance of agglutinins in the sera of recipients, and the sensitization of the regional lymph nodes is important in cell transfer mechanism.
