INTRODUCTION: Vaccination coverages threaten to decrease because of false beliefs in their unsafety and inefficacy. Therefore formation of future health-care workers on this topic is fundamental to deal with any doubt and to promote active immunization among general population. METHODS: In order to assess health-care students' knowledge about vaccination before an integrated seminar on this topic, and to evaluate their improvement after the educational intervention, an integrated educational intervention was held by a multidisciplinary team...

The cell surface (or cell wall) of bacteria is coated with carbohydrate (or glycan) structures that play a number of important roles. These include providing structural integrity, serving as a permeability barrier to extracellular compounds (e.g., drugs) and modulating the immune system of the host. Of interest to this Account is the cell wall structure of mycobacteria. There are a host of different mycobacterial species, some of which cause human disease. The most well-known is Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis...

The present issue of 'Seminars in Immunology' addresses the topic of macrophage biology, 100 years after the death of Elie Metchnikoff (May 1845-July 1916). As foreseen by Metchnikoff, the roles of macrophages in the maintenance of homeostasis and immunity against pathogens have become a broad and active area of investigation. We now start to realize that the myeloid system includes a multiplicity of cell types with diverse developmental origins and functions. Therefore, the textbook picture of a plastic and multifunctional macrophage does not meet the requirements of our current knowledge anymore...

Metastatic prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States. It is the first prevalent cancer in which overall survival in advanced disease is modestly, but objectively, improved with outpatient delivered dendritic cell-based immunotherapy. More prostate cancer patients have enrolled through Facebook and trusted-site Internet searches in clinical trials for prostate cancer vaccine-based immunotherapy than in immunotherapy trials for lung, breast, colon, pancreas, ovarian, and bladder cancer combined in the past 7 years...

The WHO classification of lymphoid neoplasms was published in 2001, then was updated in 2008, and will be evolving in the future. This classification is based on the disease discovery and accurate description by pathologists beyond the heterogeneity in the geographical distribution of the disease entities. It is now increasingly recognized that some peculiar T and NK cell lymphomas are largely prevalent in the East Asia as mostly represented by adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma, NK/T-cell lymphoma, intestinal T-cell lymphoma, and chronic active EBV infection...

The 50th anniversary of Seminars in Hematology coincides with the 50th anniversary of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and both milestones are inexorably linked to studies contributing to the cure of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). We thought it fitting, therefore, to mark these events by traveling back in time to point out some of the achievements, institutions, study groups, and individuals that have made cure of childhood ALL a reality. In many instances, progress was driven by new ideas, while in others it was driven by new experimental tools that allowed more precise assessment of the biology of leukemic blasts and their utility in selecting therapy...

The Intercontinental Cooperative immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) Study Group (ICIS) held its 4th Expert Meeting in September 2012 in Montreux, Switzerland. The program reunited researchers and clinicians from all over the globe and was organized with lectures and seminars for real-time exchange of latest information. Platelets target victims of autoimmune disease on their own, participating under physiological conditions in the immune network; these small cells are more immunologically savvy than previously thought...

This issue of Acta Medica Croatica is dedicated to historical development and role of allergology and clinical immunology in Croatia. Also listed are the names of experts who have historically marked allergology and contributed to its development. Understanding the origin of allergies as immune phenomena occurred in Croatia simultaneously to many other European countries. The origin and development of institutions established in the early 1920s constituted the backbone of a solid vertical line, crucial for the development of allergology and immunology in Croatia during the past century...

Pompe disease is an autosomal recessive neuromuscular disorder marked by progressive muscle weakness due to lysosomal buildup of glycogen. Presentation is described as a spectrum, varying by age of onset, organ involvement, and degree of myopathy. Given the phenotypic variability, Pompe disease is broadly classified into an infantile form and a late onset (juvenile, childhood, adult onset) form. Prior to the advent of enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) with alglucosidase alfa and approval for human use in 2006, the natural history was limited due to death before age 2 years for infantile onset cases and significant morbidity and early mortality for late onset Pompe disease (LOPD)...

BACKGROUND: Kawasaki disease (KD) has been reported in many countries. However, the incidence of KD in Mongolia is not known. This is the first report of incident cases of KD in Mongolia, which were identified using data from 2 nationwide surveys. METHODS: Two nationwide retrospective surveys were conducted: medical histories were collected from patients aged 0 to 16 years who were hospitalized countrywide between 1996 and 2008. Hospital records for these patients were also reviewed...

The 20th Hiroshima Cancer seminar focused upon breast cancer research and treatment particularly on the mechanism of tumorigenesis and drug resistance and development of novel therapeutics. Several molecules such as retinoblastoma and p16 were raised as key factors in tumorigenesis and invasiveness. Estrogen-related pathways seem to be closely involved in the process. For the tumor lacking hormone receptor and human epidermal growth factor 2, some other mechanisms could be responsible. It seems that MicroRNA 22 directing some putative targets such as SIRT1, Sp1 and CDK6 plays a crucial role in breast tumor growth and metastasis...
