Study for treatment of lymphatic filariosis in Science Translational Medicine published

Neglected tropical diseases such as Lymphatic filariosis are common in tropical and subtropical areas. Here mostly poor people are affected.
An international consortium with a contribution of scientists from the Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation identified a new substance ABBV-4083 in the fight against adult worms, the cause of lymphatic filariosis.
Dr. Marc Hübner and Prof. Hörauf are working in the Institute of Medical Microbiology, Immunology and Parasitology at the University Hospital Bonn.

False alarm of the immune system during muscle disease

Researchers at the University Hospitals of Dresden and Bonn of the DFG Transregio 237 and from the Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation2 at the University of Bonn have made progress clarifying why patients with myotonic dystrophy 2 have a higher tendency to develop autoimmune diseases. Their goal is to understand the development of the disease, and their research has provided new, potential therapeutic targets. The results of the study have now been published in the renowned journal "Nature Communications".
