150th anniversary of clinical description of multiple sclerosis

150th anniversary of clinical description of multiple sclerosis | History of Immunology | Scoop.it
The clinical features of multiple sclerosis were first defined in detail and with pathologic confirmation in a medical thesis published at the Salpêtrière, Paris, in 1868. The author, Leopold Ordenstein (1835–1902), a German physician, analyzed cases collected by his mentor, Jean-Martin Charcot (1825–1893). The 2 clinician-scientists described the characteristic symptoms, predisposing age, and pathologic features of the disease, and emphasized the clear delineation from other chronic progressive disorders, especially paralysis agitans. The latter was referred to as Parkinson disease by William Sanders in 1865 and adopted by Désiré-Magloire Bourneville on behalf of Charcot in 1875. This essay commemorates the 150th anniversary of the publication of the pioneering work of Leopold Ordenstein and Jean-Martin Charcot.

Lelia Delamarre



The idea of stimulating the immune system to recognize and destroy cancer is more than 100 years old, but the development of effective immunotherapies has been challenging. The breakthrough came from the work of James Allison and colleagues, who elucidated that regulatory mechanisms fine tune the immune responses to ensure maximal efficacy against infected or abnormal cells without harming healthy tissues. Allison’s group and others showed that CD28 and CTLA-A4 are key molecules with opposite roles in the regulation of CD8 T cells, the primary population of immune cells responsible for recognizing and killing cancer cells and infected cells: CD28 enhances T cell activation, whereas CTLA-4 acts …

Whooping cough vaccine: The power of first impressions

Whooping cough vaccine: The power of first impressions | History of Immunology | Scoop.it
The current whooping cough vaccine was universally adopted in the US in 1996 to replace the original vaccine based on killed Bordetella pertussis because of a stronger safety profile. The new formulation was found to be effective in preventing whooping cough during vulnerable stages in the lifespan but the kind of pertussis vaccine used to prime the immune system leaves a lasting impression. In their latest study, researchers at La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (LJI) report that individuals who had been inoculated with the newer vaccine as part of their initial series of shots, mount a weaker recall response when receiving booster shots later on.
