Earliest steps in the development of an immune response
Immunity requires the close cooperation between different types of white blood cells, particularly those called T cells and B cells, which adapt to respond differently to each new infection. The process of white blood cells responding to infections begins earlier than previously thought, according to a new study by scientists at the University of Birmingham.

Breast cancer: New way for tumor cells to escape self-destruction
In the body, so-called programmed cell death prevents cells with irreparable damage from surviving and turning into cancer cells. In the "EMBO Journal", researchers at the University of Basel's Biozentrum, report how a certain protein variant thwarts the self-destruction and thus promotes the growth of breast cancer cells.
