CONCLUSION: No differences on the rate and type of viral infections were noted for elderly vs non elderly patients. However, they tended to have more bacterial co-infections that led to AECOPD and longer hospitalization stays compared to non-elderly patients.

IgE/FcεRI-Mediated Antigen Cross-Presentation by Dendritic Cells Enhances Anti-Tumor Immune Responses
Fri, 06 Mar 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Cell Reports
Publication date: Available online 5 March 2015 Source:Cell Reports Author(s): Barbara Platzer , Kutlu G. Elpek , Viviana Cremasco , Kristi Baker , Madeleine M. Stout , Cornelia Schultz , Eleonora Dehlink , Kai-Ting C. Shade , Robert M. Anthony , Richard S. Blumberg , Shannon J. Turley , Edda Fiebiger Epidemiologic studies discovered an inverse association between immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated allergies and cancer, implying tumor-protective properties of IgE. However, the underlying immunologic mechanisms remain poorly understood. Antigen cross-presentation by dendritic cells (DCs) is of key importance for anti-tumor immunity because it induces the generation of cytotoxic CD8+ T lymphocytes (CTLs) with specificity for tumor antigens. We demonstrate that DCs use IgE and FcεRI, th...

Our bodies produce not only the familiar, disease-fighting immune antibodies, but also another group of antibodies called natural antibodies whose functions researchers have begun to pin down. Natural antibodies differ from immune antibodies in several ways. We start producing them before birth, instead of after a pathogen attack or vaccination. Many natural antibodies target our own cells. And many of them recognize a range of targets instead of a single antigen. Natural antibodies serve as a first line of defense against pathogens. They also help prevent inflammation and clean up the large number of cells that die in our bodies every day. Researchers are now investigating whether we can use natural antibodies to diagnoses diseases such as Alzheimer's and to predict rejection of transplan...

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 23:01:30 +0100 | Healthy Living - The Huffington Post
Grandparents have an important role in improving the public health of America. They cannot sit idly by, biting their tongues and not saying a word. They must talk with their children who have refused to vaccinate their grandchildren. Their children tend to converse with like-minded anti-vaccination parents and must be exposed to another perspective. Grandparents don't want to be overbearing; on the other hand, they want to protect their grandchildren. It's a difficult path -- one that many pediatricians grapple with. How does one retain the trust and ability to help parents when parents may not want advice, especially when it conflicts with their firmly-held beliefs? According to the World Health Organization, during 2000-2013, measles vaccination prevented an estimated 15.6 million deaths...
