Researchers in the School of Biological Sciences have identified a immune defence mechanism that could pave new way to treat allergies

Scientists have made a fundamental discovery about how our body’s immune system clears harmful infections.

Researchers have identified a previously unknown mechanism by which the responses of key cells of the immune system are regulated.

The finding could inform research into improved treatments for allergies or chronic inflammatory diseases, such as lung and liver fibrosis, researchers say.
