Sexually transmitted infections

New findings could improve STI vaccinations

In a new study, researchers from King’s College London have shown how skin vaccination can generate protective CD8 T-cells that are recruited to the genital tissues and could be used as a vaccination strategy for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). One of the challenges in developing vaccines for STIs, such as HIV or herpes simplex virus, is understanding how to attract specialised immune cells, called CD8 T-cells, to take up residence in the part of the body where the virus first enters. These cells need to be in place, armed and ready to provide an immediate protective immune defence, rather than waiting for immune cells in the blood to enter the tissues which takes time. Before this study, it was thought that vaccines ideally needed to be delivered directly to the body surface…

Siemens Healthineers and ESR team up for digitalization

Siemens Healthineers and the European Society of Radiology (ESR) have launched a collaborative arrangement aimed at promoting discussion with the radiology community. Their first course was held under the heading “Intelligence. Innovation. Imaging – The perfect vision of AI,” in Barcelona on April 5-6. This concept had already proven itself in the Digital Experience Hall at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR), where it focused on the digital future of radiology, and the partners now intend to continue the arrangement: “Digitalization affects all of us, and will fundamentally change our lives and the healthcare industry,” says Christoph Zindel, President Diagnostic Imaging at Siemens Healthineers. In the future, Siemens Healthineers will regularly publish texts and interviews on the subject of AI on the AI Blog, which ESR recently introduced. Recorded lectures are available at https://www.maiesr.org/recorded-lectures/
