Researchers from the University of Copenhagen and University of Rochester have identified a layer of tissue that helps protect our gray and white matter, one that hasn't been distinguished before.
Playing through the greenery and litter of a mini forest's undergrowth for just one month may be enough to change a child's immune system, according to an experiment in Finland.
A 30-year-old woman from the city of Esperanza, Argentina - the so-called Esperanza Patient - appears to be the second person whose immune system cleared the HIV-1 virus without antiretroviral therapy.
An Australian research team has found that revegetation of green spaces within cities can improve soil microbiota diversity towards a more natural, biodiverse state, which has been linked to human health benefits.
There's a lot of evidence to suggest that the gut microbiota play a role. Over the next year, US researchers will try to suss out how millions of tiny microbes living inside us might make the difference between a cancer treatment's success and its failure.
Scientists have discovered immune cells that can fight all known flu viruses in what was hailed as an "extraordinary breakthrough" that could lead to a universal, one-shot vaccine against the killer disease.
The Nobel Prize Committee has honored two researchers for their role in pioneering a new avenue for cancer treatment, one where the therapy targets the immune system, which then goes on to attack the cancer.
They’re designed to kill cancer cells, and they kill themselves in the process.
E-cigarettes appear to trigger unique immune responses as well as the same ones that cigarettes trigger that can lead to lung disease, according to a new research.
By scanning the brains of healthy volunteers, researchers saw the first, long-sought evidence that our brains may drain some waste out through lymphatic vessels, the body's sewer system.
A first-of-its-kind nanoparticle vaccine immunotherapy has been developed that targets several different cancer types
A chemical found in tumors may help stop tumor growth, according to a new study.
