The Immunology Science Round Up
Dual Targeting for B Cell Leukemia – CAR T therapy targeting both CD19 and CD22 showed clinical activity and low toxicity in a Phase I trial, but strategies to further improve CAR T cell persistence are needed.
Microbial Fitness in the Intestine – Researchers showed that microbial exposure leads to the selection of antigen-specific intestinal plasma cells with a diverse Ig gene repertoire.
Less Is More for COVID-19 Vaccine Dosage – A 1000-fold lower prime dose of an adenovirus-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccine followed by a standard boost dose elicited superior immune responses compared to two standard doses.
IL-33 in Inflammation Resolution – IL-33 induces metabolic reprogramming, which controls the differentiation of alternatively activated macrophages that contribute to the resolution of inflammation and tissue repair.
