Seasonal influenza viruses constantly change through antigenic drift and the emergence of pandemic influenza viruses through antigenic shift is unpredictable. Conventional influenza virus vaccines induce strain-specific neutralizing antibodies against the variable immunodominant globular head domain of the viral hemagglutinin protein.

Mycoplasma pneumoniae (Mp) is a highly contagious respiratory pathogen responsible for human community-acquired pneumonia. The number of antibiotic-resistant Mp strains is increasing; therefore, to develop novel therapeutics, it is crucial to precisely understand the pathogenesis of mycoplasma pneumonia. Herein, we

Interleukin (IL)-1β contributes to renal injury in immune complex glomerulonephritis. However, production of mature IL-1β depends on activation of the inflammasome that cleaves pro-IL-1β into its secretable form. A functional role of the NLRP3-containing inflammasome, which responds to various endogenous
