'Simple and Effective' Injection Could Offer Hope for Treatment of Autoimmune Disease

(Science Daily) Australian researchers have uncovered a potential new way to regulate the body's natural immune response, offering hope of a simple and effective treatment for auto-immune diseases…
The new approach involves increasing good regulating cells in the body, unlike most current research which focuses on stopping "bad" or "effector" cells, says lead researcher Dr Suzanne Hodgkinson…
The team cloned II-5 cytokine and injected it into rats with the neurological condition Guillain-BarrĂ© syndrome. These rats recovered much quicker and, if treated as a precaution, did not fall ill. The method has also shown promise in animals with multiple sclerosis, with kidney disease nephritis and trying to overcome organ transplantation rejection.
