|STOCKHOLM Air Jordan 13 GS Wolf Grey White-Deadly Pink Outlet , July 11 (Xinhua) -- Researchers at the Swedish Karolinska Institutet (KI) and their U.S. colleagues have found a new tool that can show differences in human immune systems, according to a press release from KI on Tuesday.
According to the release, researchers have developed a way to measure the unique composition of white blood cells in individuals. The test may predict how individuals will respond to a given treatment, such as how they respond to an influenza vaccine.
Immune system function varies significantly between individuals Wholesale Mens Air Jordan 13 Altitude , and up to now there has been no effective means of measuring and describing these differences. Now, KI researchers have shown that white blood cell composition in people is unique, and that the composition of these cells may predict the immune system's response to various forms of stimulation. The study paves the way for more individualised treatment of diseases involving the immune system, like allergies and various forms of cancer.
"By measuring all populations of white blood cells in the blood at the same time Mens Air Jordan 13 GS Bordeaux For Sale , we can describe the composition of an individual's immune system and show that this is unique for the individual. We call this measure the individual's 'immunotype'. We have also found that this immunotype makes the complex immune system more understandable and predictable," said Petter Brodin, physician and researcher at the Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) and the Department of Medicine, Solna Mens Air Jordan 13 GS Love Respect Black Retail Price , at KI.
A human immunotype is not constant, but varies over time in response to external factors. In previous studies, Brodin and his colleagues have shown that in humans, individual differences in immune defense can be attributed primarily to the many different environmental factors unique to each individual Mens Air Jordan 13 Love Respect Pack White Cheap , such as diet, infections, vaccines and microflora.
In the current study, researchers analysed blood samples from approximately 1 Mens Air Jordan 13 Flint Online ,500 healthy individuals and tested in vitro how their white blood cells responded to different stimuli. They have also vaccinated individuals against influenza and studied which antibody protection the individuals developed thereafter. What happened was that all the different types of stimulation could be predicted based on the individual's immunotype, which was surprising, according to Brodin.
"Our technique can be scaled up, and my hope is that eventually it will be used clinically to predict those individuals who may benefit from a particular immunological treatment or a certain vaccine. The technique may also contribute to more individualised drugs to treat autoimmune disease and allergies Cheap Mens Air Jordan 13 Wheat Golden Harvest Elemental Gold , as well as immunotherapy to treat cancer, which can be adapted based on the individual's immune response," said Brodin.
The study, conducted by researchers at KI and the SciLifeLab Air Jordan Retro 7 For Sale , together with their colleagues at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stanford University in the United States, was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
KI is one of the world's leading medical universities.

TOKYO， Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- Japan's Defense Minister Tomomi Inada on Wednesday said the nation's Self-Defense Forces (SDF) will begin training for new operations under recently changed security laws which have relaxed the forces' operational scope and use of weapons.
Since controversial security legislation was enacted in March this year， expanding the role of the SDF despite the inherent contradictions to Japan's own pacifist Constitution， the defense ministry has been updating its code of operational conduct for its forces， governing geographical location and use of lethal force.
The defense ministry indicated that its Ground Self-Defense Force troops will start to train for multiple potential maneuvers overseas. The training programs， which will also include joint exercises with the United States， will begin on Thursday， Inada said， referring specifically to a GSDF unit.
Inada， who has been in her post for less than a month， is known as a key ally of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and shares his hawkish views on security. She is also known for her contentious views of Japan's wartime past.
On Tuesday， she visited a U.S. naval base in the city of Yokosuka， in Kanagawa Prefecture， where she boarded the U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan， having earlier inspected the helicopter-carrier Izumo， the largest destroyer in the MSDF's fleet， yet widely believed to be an aircraft carrier.
Japan's security shift， in contravention of its own pacifist constitution， a key clause of which reads that "land， sea， and air forces， as well as other war potential， will never be maintained，" has put the island nation under the international spotlight as the changes to the law were made by way of an Abe-led unilateral cabinet decision and forced through parliament into law based on his party's ruling majority and against the public will.
Under the new legislation， Japan is now， in a limited manner， permitted to exercise the right to collective self-defense or can come to the aid of the United States and other friendly nations under armed attack， even if Japan itself is not attacked. However， the ambiguous wording of the law， has led to increased suspicion and vexation at Abe's loosely-veiled plans to remilitarize the country.
