The Emerging Role of Neuro-Immune Synapses and the Immunological Homunculus in the Context of the Systematic Lymphoid Organs Innervation

The Emerging Role of Neuro-Immune Synapses and the Immunological Homunculus in the Context of the Systematic Lymphoid Organs Innervation

Evolving concept By Clemens Wülfing, Fenja Amrei Schuran, Inga Hölge, Julia Urban, Jasmin Oehlmann and Hauke Simon Günther Nearly all body tissues are connected to the central nervous system through the axonal terminals of neurons. But with regard to lymphoid organs, this direct innervation, its extent and significance, as well as the role of afferent […]

Are children with growth hormone (GH) deficiency more susceptible to pneumococcal disease?

Are children with growth hormone (GH) deficiency more susceptible to pneumococcal disease?

GIGA-I3 Immunoendocrinology Laboratory (ULiège) recently delivered compelling results from fundamental research on mouse models. Vincent Geenen’s Immunoendocrinology Laboratory at GIGA-I3 has obtained important data that could have an impact on the monitoring of children with growth hormone (GH) deficiency. These results have just been published in two successive publications, Frontiers in Endocrinology(1) and Frontiers in […]

2017 in Review: New Advances in Neuroendocrine Immunology

2017 in Review: New Advances in Neuroendocrine Immunology

Editorial In 2017, we witnessed further rapid growth in the vast interdisciplinary area of neuroendocrine immunology. It became a tradition to reflect on the new significant developments and conceptual trends in the field that were presented at BrainImmune. We will retrace some of our commentaries, revisiting the studies on BrainImmune we believe are illustrative, stimulating […]

Brain Superautoantigens: Connections between Immune and Neural Repertoires

Brain Superautoantigens: Connections between Immune and Neural Repertoires

Opinion Article Introduction Although human cells express a quasi-infinite number of potential autoantigens, only a limited range of the human “self” antigen library is actually targeted by pathological autoimmunity. Accordingly, the clinical expression of human autoimmunity is essentially restricted to relatively few stereotyped disorders including psoriasis, diabetes, vitiligo, thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. Thus, […]

Neuroendocrine-Immunology Progress and Development Stories: 2016 in Review

Neuroendocrine-Immunology Progress and Development Stories: 2016 in Review

Editorial Neuroendocrine-immunology has achieved substantial progress and growth over the last year. As the BrainImmune mission is to promote the advancement of this research field, it is becoming a tradition to recapitulate the latest developments in this relatively new interdisciplinary area that bridges neurosciences and immunology. Note that this is not a complete list, but […]

2015 Bringing Some Major Advances in Neuroendocrine Immunology

2015 Bringing Some Major Advances in Neuroendocrine Immunology

Editorial In 2003, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, MD, USA, launched the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research, marking the renaissance in interdisciplinary research, and outlining new perspectives of cutting-edge 21st century work that crosses disciplines. The ‘interdisciplinary research’, as per the Roadmap, was defined as “integrating the analytical strengths of two or more […]

Rainer Straub and the Origin of Chronic Inflammatory Systemic Diseases

Rainer Straub and the Origin of Chronic Inflammatory Systemic Diseases

SHORT FEATURES and FACES ARTICLE Synopsis of the Book The Origin of Chronic Inflammatory Systemic Diseases and Their Sequelae by Rainer H Straub Academic Press/Elsevier Chronic inflammatory systemic diseases (CIDs) are a burden to humans because approximately 10% of the population is affected by long-standing chronic inflammatory illness. The numbers would be extensively higher if […]

Neuroendocrine Immunology in 2014 – What Was Hot and Some Conceptual Trends as Presented on BrainImmune

Neuroendocrine Immunology in 2014 – What Was Hot and Some Conceptual Trends as Presented on BrainImmune

Editorial In 2014 we witnessed a rapid growth of the research and studies at the interface and intersection of neurosciences and immunology. This vast interdisciplinary area, often referred to as neuroendocrine immunology or neuroimmunology, also includes stress-immune interactions that may have complex and multifaceted impact on health and disease. Last year also brought some interesting […]

GEBIN, the German-Endocrine-Brain-Immune-Network

GEBIN is a network that combines activities in different German scientific societies with a special interest in Behavior-Neuro-Endocrine-Immune interactions. People interested in GEBIN typically concentrate on interdisciplinary research foci. The different German scientific societies have so-called study groups which bridge the own discipline and other research subjects. The spokesmen of these study groups come together […]

Neuroimmunomodulation, Journal, Karger

Neuroimmunomodulation (Karger) publishes peer-reviewed basic and clinical studies related to the interdisciplinary research field of neuroimmunomodulation, the way in which the nervous system interacts with the immune system via neural, hormonal, and paracrine actions. The journal covers both basic and clinical aspects of this rapidly growing research area. Basic or fundamental work and studies deal […]
