Abstract / Description of output
As an official journal of the British Society of Immunology, the journal Clinical & Experimental Immunology is dedicated to promoting excellence in immunological research and to support the education of future generations of immunologists . However, we noticed that there is currently a lack of scientific and educational material that could support aspiring medical and immunology students to better understand the underlying mechanisms that lead to immune-mediated diseases, as well as the ways current treatments lead to amelioration of symptoms and, potentially, to resolution of diseases. For a wide range of diseases, there has been substantial progress over the past few years in the understanding the underlying immunological mechanisms that lead to disease and pathology. This progress has allowed the development of novel therapeutic approaches to treat various diseases, first in animal models and then in clinical trials. Therefore, we felt compelled to launch a new article series covering the newest developments in this field of research. We entitle this novel series “Clinical and Experimental Treatment of […]”.
