Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The “Humoral Immunity” Section is devoted to publishing major advancements related to the antibody response in a wide variety of host species under physiological, pathological, therapeutic, and vaccination conditions. The main topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Antibody response during infections, diseases, treatments, and vaccination;
  2. Identification and evaluation of biomarkers associated with antibody production and protection;
  3. Neutralizing antibodies against pathogens and toxins;
  4. Self-reactive autoantibodies;
  5. Structure and function of clinically relevant antibodies;
  6. Physiological antibody generation as well as maturation and related mechanisms, such as antigen presentation for B cell activation, cytokine production, germinal center formation, isotype switching, affinity maturation, and long-term memory generation;
  7. Mechanisms of and interference with antibody-mediated complement activation.

In particular, we welcome submissions exploring the use of cutting-edge technologies across disciplines to provide a comprehensive overview of the mechanisms of the humoral immune response during natural development, diseases, therapy, and vaccination.
