Topic People Description
The autoinflammatory diseases are a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by a genetic mutation able to modify the immune response and in particular innate immunity cells function. The clinical onset is characterized by the appearance of a continuous or sub-continuous inflammatory picture and is represented by fever, articular and/or cutaneous and/or serological involvement usually in the first years of life.

Ematologia, immunologia, oncologia molecolare Antonella Rigo
Fabrizio Vinante
Studio delle interazioni tra molecole coinvolte nei fondamentali processi cellulari in ematologia, immunologia e oncologia.
Immunità innata e terapia anti-tumorale Stefania Cane'
La mia ricerca è rivolta alla comprensione dei meccanismi di immunosoppressione associati alle cellule mieloidi nella risposta contro i i linfomi
Innate immunity and tumors Cristina Tecchio
Study on the interactions occurring between tumor and innate immunity cells
innate immunity Vincenzo Bronte

The innate immune system, also known as the non-specific immune system or in-born immunity system is an important subsystem of the overall immune system that comprises the cells and mechanisms that defend the host from infection by other organisms. The cells of the innate system recognize and respond to pathogens in a similar way, but, unlike the adaptive immune system, the system does not provide long-lasting immunity to the host. Innate immune systems provide immediate defense against infection, and are found in all classes of plant and animal life.
Natural Immunity Vincenzo Bronte
Marco Antonio Cassatella
Marta Donini
Carlo Laudanna
Natural immunity is the evolutionarily older component of immunity that is based primarily, albeit not exclusively, on the function of professional phagocytes and which is characterized by the ability to respond to pathogens without requiring a previous encounter with the same pathogens. . This is why it is also called natural immunity.

Specific, adoptive, immunity Carlo Laudanna
Specific immunity based on function of lymphocytes leading to immune memory and anti-neoplastic reactions
Immunodeficiencies are a group of diseases characterized by a lose of cellular or humoral function, leading to an increase susceptibility to infectious diseases or cancers or autoimmune diseases or manifestation. Elisa Tinazzi
Immunodeficienze primitive Claudio Lunardi
Le immunodeficienze primitive sono caratterizzate da un difetto dell'immunità innata o adattativa dovuto nella maggioranza dei casi ad una mutazione genetica. Sono caratterizzate da infezioni frequenti, maggiore suscettibilità a neoplasie e possono presentarsi con malattie autoimmuni, autoinfiammatorie o allergiche.

Patrizia Scapini
Studies on the mechanisms utilized by innate immune cells to modulate inflammatory and immune responses. In particular, the studies are focused in gaining new insights on the role of neutrophils and monocyte/macrophages in autoimmune diseases and cancer.
Inflammation and Alzheimer disease Vittorina Della Bianca
Study on the trafficking of different leukocyte sub-populations from blood into the central nervous system during neurological disorders, in particular the Alzheimer disease, in which inflammation plays a detrimental role in their pathogenesis and clinical evolution.

Infiammazione e tumori Marco Antonio Cassatella
nfiammazione e cancro vanno spesso di pari passo. Da un lato il tumore scatena una risposta infiammatoria, dall'altro proprio il contesto infiammatorio puo' alimentare l'aggressività del tumore e la disseminazione delle metastasi. La mappa dei punti in cui processi infiammatori e tumorali si interconnettono e agiscono in concerto è in corso di esplorazione.
Autoimmune diseases are a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by a common triad represented by genetic predisposition, environmental influence, dysregulation of the immune system with different clinical presentation according to the different pathology. Domenico Biasi
