HIV reservoirs continually stimulate the immune system
HIV reservoirs continually stimulate the immune system
Scientists at CHUV and the University of Lausanne have shown that in people living with HIV and taking antiretroviral treatment, cells functioning as "reservoirs" continue to produce parts of the virus that continually stimulate the immune system. This discovery opens the way to new therapeutic approaches.

Exotic insects follow their larder, but with a delay
An analysis conducted by Cleo Bertelsmeier and Aymeric Bonnamour at the University of Lausanne's Department of Ecology and Evolution and published in "PNAS" reveals that the spread of plants precedes and favors the establishment of insects outside their region of origin. Based on the time lag observed, the scientists estimate that in the near future, discoveries of non-native insects could increase by 35% worldwide .

The design of novel and optimized CAR T cells targeting both BCMA and TACI in the treatment of multiple myeloma
Novel chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) with different configurations of the natural ligand APRIL for BCMA and TACI antigens delivered fast anti-tumor responses but did not protect from tumor recurrence, similar to CAR T cell therapies using antibody fragments for BCMA binding. The Arber Lab identifies potential mechanisms of resistance shared by different CAR T cell types targeting BCMA.
