We all have our unique immune system PIN codesNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:19 am ICT by admin
According to the researchers, every human being has its own unique immune system PIN code, which is why the knowledge gained by a virus by unlocking the code in one person does not help it in infecting another individual.
However, the same defence mechanism makes it difficult to decode the entire human immune system, and develop precise immunological treatments such as vaccines, they add.
With the creation of the new neural networks now, it is believed that the researchers will be able to predict all the different immune system PIN codes.
The researchers say that on a global scale, the neural networks may prove helpful in dealing with all the variables of an epidemic threat.
“We’ll be able to find candidates for vaccines which can help both the individual and all of humanity,” says Professor S
