Immune Regulation

Our immune system is a precisely balanced protective wall that recognizes and combats pathogenic intruders. Similar to ourselves the immune system sometimes can be led astray and, by mistake, attacks parts of the own body. Furthermore, parallel infections with different pathogens massively challenge our immune system. Learn more about how scientists investigate the balance of the immune system in those extreme situations.

  • Impfung gegen Diabetes

    Diabetes melletius ist inwzischen eine Volkskrankheit an der jährlich mehr junge Menschen erkranken. Lebenslang müssen die Betroffenen strenge Diät halten und Insulin spritzen, da ihre Bauchspeicheldrüse das Hormon nicht produziert und dadurch der Zucker im Blut nicht von den Zellen aufgenommen werden kann. Diabetes ist eine Krankheit, bei der das Immunsystem selbst für die Krankheit verantwortlich ist. Forscher am HZI versuchen die Krankheit zu verstehen und haben in Mäusen einen Weg gefunden das Immunsystem auszutricksen: Sie programmieren es um. Der erste Schritt zu einer völlig neuen Therapie.
