Example sentences for: immunologists

How can you use “immunologists” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The role of genetics in modulating the immune response to infectious diseases is a topic of longstanding interest among epidemiologists, clinicians, population geneticists, and immunologists [ 1 2 ] . Zinkernagel and Doherty's Nobel Prize-winning discovery that cellular immunity to viral infections was "restricted" by the highly variable proteins of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) brought the field of immunogenetics into sharper focus [ 3 ] . Their demonstration that T lymphocytes recognize virus antigens displayed on a host cell "in the context of" MHC proteins immediately suggested the idea that genetic differences at the loci encoding the MHC might modulate the intensity and effectiveness of host response to infection.

  • In addition, autoimmunity has intrigued basic immunologists since the early realization that the ability to discriminate self from non-self was at the core of the immune system's ability to protect an organism from pathogens while avoiding self-destruction.

  • Simple and accurate methods exist to determine for a single pair of alleles how the three possible genotypes (2 homozygotes and one heterozygote) affect disease outcome, and these methods have been used frequently in the literature on autoimmunity and HLA [ 28 29 30 ] and once (to our knowledge) in the HLA-infectious disease literature [ 33 ] . It is of additional interest for epidemiologists, immunologists, vaccine designers and evaluators, and population geneticists to know whether HLA heterozygosity in general improves the immune response to and outcome of infectious diseases.
