Unsuspected aspect of immune regulation revealed: Role of 'B cells'
Date:
July 1, 2014

Garvan Institute of Medical Research

Summary:
Until now, the immune cells known as 'B cells' have been thought to specialize only in the production of antibodies. A discovery by immunologists shows they also have a role to play in regulating another important aspect of the immune system (regulating T cells).

This finding may benefit research into autoimmunity and transplantation.
