[09.07.2018] Sie sind winzig klein und in der Luft allgegenwärtig: Schimmelpilzsporen. Wenn Immungeschwächte sie einatmen, riskieren sie eine gefährliche Infektion. Dass auch Nanopartikel in diesem Zusammenhang eine wichtige Rolle spielen, hat jetzt eine Forschungsgruppe herausgefunden, an der auch die Universität Duisburg-Essen (UDE) maßgeblich beteiligt ist.
Die Molekularbiologin Prof. Shirley Knauer erläutert: „Wir haben entdeckt, dass ultrafeine Partikel die Oberfläche von Pilzsporen so ummanteln können, dass sie von der Immunabwehr übersehen werden. Dann steigt das Risiko für eine schwere Infektionskrankheit natürlich deutlich an.“ Die neuen Erkenntnisse zur Wechselwirkung von Nanopartikeln mit Pilzsporen sind in der aktuellen Ausgabe der Fachzeitschrift „Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA" veröffentlicht.

[06.07.2018] Total übermüdet: Chronische Virenerkrankungen können bestimmte Zellen des menschlichen Immunsystems entkräften, so dass weitere Infektionen tödlich enden können. Mit neuen Antikörpern lässt sich die körpereigene Abwehr allerdings wieder auf Trab bringen. Das haben Wissenschaftler der Medizinischen Fakultät der Universität Duisburg-Essen (UDE) herausgefunden. Sie berichten darüber in der jüngsten Ausgabe des Fachmagazins „Nature Communications".
Die neuen Antikörper binden an den Rezeptor CEACAM1, der die Immunreaktion im Körper reguliert. „Er ist Voraussetzung dafür, dass sich ein ausreichendes Signal zwischen den Immunzellen aufbaut, so dass die Virusinfektion bekämpft werden kann", erläutert Prof. Dr. Karl S. Lang vom Institut für Immunologie am Universitätsklinikum Essen, der die Untersuchung gemeinsam mit Dr. Vishal Khairnar und PD Dr. Bernhard B. Singer vom Institut für Anatomie durchführte.
