T-Cell Mutiny

Record #:
Immunologist Jon Serody studies immune cells that cause graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). When GVHD occurs, a patient’s immune system rejects bone marrow transplants, and transplanted cells invade the organs and bore holes in tissue. Serody recently found that symptoms of GVHD depend on which tissues are attacked, and the most commonly targeted organs include the skin, gastrointestinal tract, liver, and lungs.
