New research in piglets suggests that the immune systems of males and females respond differently to pre- and probiotics as early as in infancy.
As humans have evolved the ability to fight pathogens, these same adaptations have led to the emergence of inflammatory diseases, new research suggests.
Current research in mice demonstrates that body clocks play a crucial role in how effectively certain immune cells respond when triggered to become active.
