Our understanding of the pivotal role the immune system plays in the pathogenesis of many diseases is continually expanding. Huge advances have been made in elucidating the complex immunologic
background of several diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and asthma [1,2].

Translocation of a gut pathobiont
drives autoimmunity in mice and humans
The 11th International Congress on Autoimmunity attracted hundreds of abstracts, available for you here.
Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the cancer risk in a cohort of Finnish patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) when followed over the long term.
E. granulosus is very complex multicellular parasite. As many pathogens is highly immunogenic for human host. Thus, the host immunity play a most important role in host-parasite relationship in human ehinococcosis. The secretory and excretory products from parasite influences immune and immune competent cells in human host and stimulate humoral and proinflammatory cell-mediated immune responses, releasing of significant antibody production, and activate T cells and other antigenpresenting cells in human host.

The association between autoimmune diseases and cancer is to be considered one of the most well established and clinically challenging issues.
Background:Systemic lupus erythematosus, characterized by persistent inflammation, is a complex autoimmune disorder with no known cure. Immunosuppressants used in treatment put patients at a higher risk of infections. New knowledge of disease modulators, such as symbiotic bacteria, can enable fine-tuning of parts of the immune system, rather than suppressing it altogether.
