New Study Paves Way For Personalized Medicine For Infections

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Researchers at Tel Aviv University (TAU) say they have identified two key components of the body’s immune response to severe infectious disease, potentially paving the way for personalized and more effective treatments in the field of infectious diseases.

An infectious disease is caused by a microorganism such as a bacterium or a virus entering the body and causing damage to the cells. These cells can also be damaged by the immune system fighting the infection, such as in the case of inflammation.

The body’s reaction to infection has previously been viewed as a monolithic unit, but now the TAU researchers have been able to locate two main markers in the blood that are triggered by infection.
