molecular events triggered by DNA damage detection and why defects in these events lead to immune deficiency and cancer in humans GENOME INTEGRITY Whilst controlled DNA breaks allow for our vast repertoire of antibodies DNA damage happening out of context can lead to cancer or predisposition to cancer Recent developments in personalised medicine exploit the DNA repair weaknesses of cancer cells to selectively kill them A better understanding of the underlying mechanisms can help develop innovative and targeted therapies Wales http creativecommons org licenses by nc sa 2 0 uk

Immune Evasion: How Sneaky Pathogens Avoid Host Surveillance (MIT) 7.340 Immune Evasion: How Sneaky Pathogens Avoid Host Surveillance (MIT) Every infection consists of a battle between the invading pathogen and the resisting host To be successful a pathogen must escape the many defenses of the host immune system until it can replicate and spread to another host A pathogen must prevent one of three stages of immune function detection activation or effector function Examples of disease specific immune evasion and the mechanisms used by pathogens to prevail over their hosts immune systems are discussed Also considered is what these host pathogen interactions reveal about the normal function of the immune system and basic cell biological processes such as protein maturation and degradation Every infection consists of a battle between the invading pathogen and the resisting host To be successful a pathogen must escape the many defenses of the host immune system until it can

susceptibility in African children for years We asked him about his latest findings in the development of vaccines against malaria Professor Hill develops vaccines against malaria based on inducing cellular immune responses T lymphocytes instead of the more commonly used stimulation of antibodies Prophylactic vaccines developed in Oxford are now showing great promise in clinical trials Wales
