Danish scientists have discovered our bodies’ warning signals

Researchers from University of Aarhus have discovered the perhaps first place in which our cells get wind of viruses about to infect us. The discovery could lead to the development of more effective vaccines.

“So maybe it will turn out that people who are often experiencing infections, actually have problems activating this newly discovered mechanism,” says professor in immunology and virology, dr. med. Søren Riis Paludan from University of Aarhus, who is responsible for the research results along with post. Doc., Ph. D. Christian Holm.
