What manifests as a simple cold or fever and eventually clear up is actually the result of a full-fledged war in your child’s body. The war between their immune system and the invading bacteria or virus
The reason for this is our body clock, and the fact that each cell in the body, including our immune cells, can tell what time of day it is.
Not everyone develops immunity after the infection - nine percent didn't have detectable antibodies, seven percent didn't have T cells that recognize the virus.
While initial infection with Covid-19 is more likely to bestow 80 percent protection from reinfection to those under 65 years of age.
A report states that transplant recipients may fare better after the second dose but prior studies show the first shot is enough to kickstart antibody production.
The survivor harboured the virus for at least five years and then transmitted it via semen to a sex partner, researchers reported in articles published in Science and Stat. Until now, the longest the ebola virus had been known to persist in a survivor was 500 days
The immune system creates memory B cells that recognise the virus and unleash a new round of antibodies when encountered the next time.
Fever acts to mobilize multiple arms on the immune system, helping many of them work at their peak capacity.
Kambo is catching on among the same crowd of coastal New Age elites — Burning Man psychonauts, Silicon Valley disrupters, plant-medicine proselytes — that rallied around ayahuasca, the hallucinogenic rainforest tea, a decade ago
Scientists have slammed the new guidance which allows for the interchange of vaccines, if the second dose of the vaccine originally received is not available, saying officials have abandoned science and are just trying to 'guess their way out of a mess'
In most people, the SARS-CoV-2 specific antibodies gradually declined over the course of three to four months.
Your skin is the first protective barrier against every pathogen and allergen in the world. So, when your skin itches, you should know that it may have come into contact with something that’s harmful and causing this reaction.
Study suggests immune system gets activated right after birth; findings may assist development of precision vaccination
recision vaccination is a concept based on the fact that every individual has different susceptibility to diseases based on their genes, age, sex and environmental factors
Some reports reveal patients were sicker the second time – a pattern the immune system is supposed to prevent.
Catalase, an antioxidant enzyme, is also commonly used worldwide in food production and as a dietary supplement.
Is staying home harming your child’s immune system by making them more susceptible to other diseases?
A theory known as the “old friends” hypothesis suggests that exposure to harmless microbes that have co-evolved with humans help to train the developing immune system.
The scientists believe that by identifying the most important components in the healthy blood, it would be easy for doctors to target these to either reduce or increase their levels in the blood of the mice
No fever or chills. No loss of smell or taste. No breathing difficulties. They don’t feel a thing.
Scientists found that in four anglerfish species, males attach to the females temporarily while in the other six, the fusion is permanent.
Adjuvants are substances that are used in combination with a vaccine to produce a more robust immune response than what the vaccine alone would provide
