For the first time scientists will be able to study the development of human testes in mice.
New research suggests that understanding provided by parasitic worms could be used to treat serious lung injury caused by infections.
Researchers using mice have shown how the Leishmania parasite, transmitted by sand flies, establishes infection.
Unlocking a key messenger protein in the body’s defences could be a first step to new treatments for multiple sclerosis (MS) and other autoimmune diseases, suggest studies in mice with a form of the disease.
Experiments on zebrafish larvae have revealed how cancer cells harness the immune system to quicken the spread of the disease.
Cancer tumours somehow escape the body's immune system, even when that immune system is primed by a vaccine designed to specifically target the cancer.
A study of immune cells taken from ageing mice has found that oxygen-damaged proteins block a crucial transport pathway within the cells, preventing them from recognising pathogens and leading to a weakened immune system.
Researchers have identified the master gene that causes blood stem cells to turn into natural killer (NK) immune cells.
Experiments on mice have identified the missing link that allows the nervous and immune systems to communicate.
Scientists have used a hormone to completely remove a HIV like virus from mice.
Exposure to bacteria or viruses as child could reduce your chances of contracting asthma, according to new research on mice.
Suncream may delay the onset of melanoma, but it cannot completely prevent it according to new research using mice.
