Nutrient mechanisms in inflammation, infection and immunity - Biochemical Society and British Society for Immunology
The interaction between nutrition and the immune system is well recognized. Nutrition is critical to immune defence and to pathogen resistance during infection. In addition, inflammation, an underlying component of numerous chronic diseases, is modifiable by diet. Several nutrients and diet-derived compounds modulate various components of the immune system and have beneficial effects in infectious and inflammatory diseases, including vitamins D and E, phytochemicals and lipids. Recently, novel mechanisms of action of nutrients on immune cells have been described.
This Hot Topic meeting will provide an opportunity for researchers interested in exciting emerging topics in nutritional immunology to come together and to establish a network for future collaborations in this fascinating area of research.
