SYNERGIE Magazine #8 published. Title: The Immune System
The new issue of the DZG magazine SYNERGIE has just been published. The topic of number 8 is the immune system.
As in every previous issue, each of the six German Centers for Health Research (DZG) is represented in this latest edition. The DZL contribution “Ein Botenstoff zum Aufatmen?” deals with the clinical testing of inhaled cyclosporine A in COVID-19. The inhalation of the cytokine GM-CSF*, originally tested for acute respiratory distress syndrome ARDS**, aims in a similar direction. Now it is also being used in a COVID-19 trial.
In another article, ARCN scientist Thomas Bahmer is protagonist in a newcomer story.
We are particularly proud that our new Federal Research Minister Bettina Stark-Watzinger wrote a preface for this issue. She emphasizes the outstanding role of the DZG for the German research landscape.
You can read the articles in the new SYNERGIE individually on the website or in the e-reader. For the haptic experience, you can subscribe to the print edition here. [SYNERGIE is published exclusively in German language.]
