Tolerance induction in memory CD4 T cells is partial and reversible
- Biology, MedicinebioRxiv
It is found that memory CD4 T cells generated by infection or immunisation survive secondary activation with antigen delivered without adjuvant, regardless of their location in secondary lymphoid organs or peripheral tissues, and data suggest that tolerance induction in memory T cells is partial and can be reversed.
Can Immune Tolerance Be Re-established in Neuromyelitis Optica?
- Biology, MedicineFrontiers in Neurology
Development and implementation of immune tolerance-based therapies in NMO is likely to be an important step toward improving the treatment outcomes of the disease and the antigen-specificity of these therapies will likely ameliorate the disease safely and effectively, and will also eliminate the clinical challenges associated with chronic immunosuppressive therapies.
Low-dose 2-deoxy glucose stabilises tolerogenic dendritic cells and generates potent in vivo immunosuppressive effects
- BiologyCellular and molecular life sciences : CMLS
It is shown that treatment of mouse bone marrow-derived tolDC ex vivo with low-dose 2-DG (2.5 mM) induces a stable tolerogenic phenotype demonstrated by their failure to engage lactate production when challenged with mycobacterial antigen (Mtb), and that a single subcutaneous administration of 2-GtolDC prevented experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis (EAU) in vivo.
The Potential of Nanomedicine to Unlock the Limitless Applications of mRNA
This review provides a full description of the marketed vaccine formulations and disclose LNPs’ pharmaceutical properties, including composition, structure, and manufacturing considerations, and different types of lipid-based delivery technologies currently in preclinical and clinical development, namely lipoplexes and cationic nanoemulsions.

Immunomodulatory effects of polysaccharides from marine algae for treating cancer, infectious disease, and inflammation
- BiologyPhytotherapy research : PTR
The chemical composition of the algal polysaccharides, namely alginate, fucoidan, ascophyllan, and porphyran are discussed and their applications in the treatment of cancer, infectious disease, and inflammation are summarized.
Randomised clinical trial: a placebo‐controlled study of subcutaneous or intradermal NEXVAX2, an investigational immunomodulatory peptide therapy for coeliac disease
- Medicine, BiologyAlimentary pharmacology & therapeutics
Nexvax2 contains three gluten‐derived peptides, intended to tolerize coeliac disease patients to gluten, and pharmacokinetics and rapid onset of effect suggest that subcutaneous delivery may also be effective.

- BiologyAnnual review of immunology
The "civil service model" is proposed to explain how tolerant T cells might interfere with the responses of competent T cells in such a way as to render them tolerant.

This review examines the key studies and novel research directions in the field of immunological tolerance and centers on the facilitation of donor-cell mixed chimerism in the transplant recipient with the use of bone marrow or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
Type 1 diabetes immunotherapy using polyclonal regulatory T cells
- Medicine, BiologyScience Translational Medicine
A phase 1 trial of adoptive Treg immunotherapy to repair or replace Tregs in type 1 diabetics was reported, and the therapy was safe, supporting efficacy testing in further trials and support the development of a phase 2 trial to test efficacy of the Treg therapy.
Tolerance signatures in transplant recipients
- Biology, MedicineCurrent opinion in organ transplantation
Encouraging progress is being made in identifying tolerance biomarkers that predict or identify individuals who exhibit tolerance to a transplanted organ, and it will be important to validate these markers in larger studies of transplant recipients undergoing prospective minimization or withdrawal of immunosuppression.
