Autoimmune Clinical Trials: A Brief Review of Recent Autoimmune Research

In 2020 and 2021, the clinical research had an almost singular focus on COVID-19. They wanted to understand it, create a vaccine, and develop ways to treat the virus. It was a worldwide pandemic – and the research community was “all hands, on deck.” Many (if not most) trials that were open at the time were temporarily […]

Important Milestones in Autoimmune Research: A Timeline of Autoimmunity

Autoimmunity can take many different forms, and that complicates matters. Autoimmune diseases and conditions often do not manifest homogenously – different people may experience very different symptoms. This inconsistency makes a diagnosis difficult, but it also means that identifying the specific autoimmunity is a challenge. As such, progress in autoimmune research is often not linear […]

Better Clinical Trials: How Does Location Impact Autoimmune Research Studies?

Autoimmune research is continually evolving as the scientific community uncovers the mechanisms and unravels the pathogenesis of these conditions. While not everything is understood about autoimmune disorders, one fact that does seem to be apparent is the influence of location. Living in a specific area or eating certain foods can expose people to microflora that […]

Autoimmune Research in Review: Microbiome, Microbiota, and Immune System Conditions

Microbiome and microbiota are attracting an increasing amount of attention in the world of medical research. Recently, we have reviewed some literature that link microbiome with allergy. However, microbiome is associated with autoimmune disorders just as often (Google scholar search results 14,000 for microbiome and allergy, 12,300 for microbiome and autoimmune). In this article, we will review some of […]
