In a study published today in the journal Nature Immunology, Belgian researchers from the universities of Liège and Ghent (ULiège and UGent) have, for the first time, proven that infecting laboratory mice with a gammaherpesvirus, herpesvirus murin 4 or MuHV-4, protects the latter from developing allergic asthma. This study is the first to prove the crucial role that some viral infections can play in the long-term control of the development of allergic responses.

A joint study by ULiège (GIGA) and ULB, will be publish in PNAS, shows that a population of cells of the immune system, γδ T cells, could have an important effect in human papillomavirus-induced (HPV) cervical cancer, the third leading cause of cancer death in women.
