NIH News Release
A May 5, 2005, a news release issued by the National Institutes of Health announced that new research on a bacterium that can survive encounters with specific immune system cells has strengthened scientists' belief that these plentiful white blood cells, known as neutrophils, dictate whether our immune system will permit or prevent bacterial infections. A paper describing the research was released online in The Journal of Immunology. Frank R. DeLeo, Ph.D., of Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML), part of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health, directed the work at RML, in Hamilton, Montana, in collaboration with lead author Dori L. Borjesson, D.V.M., Ph.D., of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine.
