Immunomodulatory effect of oral epithelial cells

July 2019

Frontiers in Immunology publishes the article "Human Oral Epithelial Cells Impair Bacteria-Mediated Maturation of Dendritic Cells and Render T Cells Unresponsive to Stimulation". This research reveals the immunomodulation exerted by the epithelial cells of the oral cavity either on cells of innate immunity stimulated with bacteria and/or on cells (T lymphocytes) of adaptive immunity. The research carried out in the School of Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid has had the participation of INMUNOTEK.

The olive tree protagonist in the "Eliseo Subiza" Botanical Day

May 2019

The XXII Botanical Identification Seminar Day "Eliseo Subiza" was dedicated to the olive tree and took place in Toledo. This initiative of the Hospital Virgen del Valle (Toledo) has the collaboration of INMUNOTEK and is aimed to perform a botanical training of young allergists in main local allergenic plants. Through field trips with botanical experts and aerobiological lectures, each year is dedicated to special plant. The olive tree is a tree of great allergological interest as a cause of pollinosis in Spain since its pollen is very allergenic and affects a large number of patients.
