Researchers Find a Way to Slow Down White Blood Cells
Researchers at Tel Aviv University, in cooperation with Cincinnati Children’s, have found a way to slow down white blood cells, preventing them from becoming overactive, which can lead to allergies and autoimmune diseases.
Researchers call the discovery a breakthrough in science’s understanding of the immune system and say it suggests powerful new treatments for eosinophilic diseases such as asthma.
The immune system has a double role. While its prime task is to fight infections, it can also become overactive, leading to medical problems such as allergies and autoimmune diseases.
