Animation: Immunology of the rheumatoid joint (Video) (January 2016)


Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that mainly affects the joints in which the body's immune system attacks its own tissues. This animation produced by Nature Reviews Immunology and Nature Reviews Rheumatology guides us through the immune pathways involved in the disease, from the first signs of self-reactive immune cells to joint damage and other symptoms, and highlights opportunities for new treatments.

Animation: Tumour immunology and immunotherapy (Video) (September 2015)


This animation from Nature Reviews Cancer and Nature Reviews Immunology illustrates how tumour cells are sensed and destroyed by cells of the immune system and how tumours can evolve to evade immune-mediated elimination. Scientists are developing new immunotherapies that help the immune system to 'fight back' — the animation explains how these exciting new drugs work.
