Virtual Issues

The latest free collections and Virtual Issues from the BSI journals Discovery Immunology, Immunotherapy Advances and Clinical & Experimental Immunology.

T cell-targeted approaches to cancer immunotherapy

This Immunotherapy Advances Special Collection focuses on reprogramming lymphocytes as a treatment option for cancer and includes the latest research on CAR-NK cells, immune checkpoint targets, combination therapies and adverse events.

World Primary Immunodeficiency Week Virtual Issue

To call attention to World Primary Immunodeficiency Week, Clinical & Experimental Immunology has created this Virtual Issue highlighting some of our most impactful primary immunodeficiency research from the last three years. This collection features cutting-edge reviews and original research, focusing on topics including PID diagnosis and pathogenesis in chronic granulomatous disease, Behçet’s disease and other PIDs, as well as clinical guidelines on the management of non-infectious CVID complications from the UK Primary Immunodeficiency Network.

Immunotherapy of Asthma and Allergy

Allergen desensitization for IgE-mediated allergic disease is the oldest form of immunotherapy but progress is still needed to ensure long-term outcomes and precision diagnosis of allergenic triggers. This Special Collection from Immunotherapy Advances explores traditional and novel immunotherapeutics for the treatment of food and environmental allergies and their mechanism of action in changing the allergic immune response.

Adoptive cellular immunotherapies

This Immunotherapy Advances Special Collection focuses on adoptive cellular therapies as a treatment option for cancer, including CAR-T cell immunotherapy, natural killer cell therapy and other forms of engineered T cell therapies.

Targeting immunometabolism

The field of immunometabolism has matured into a vibrant translational research area in the last decade. In this Immunotherapy Advances Special Collection, we provide a comprehensive overview of metabolites and micronutrients in both hosts and pathogens and how they contribute to driving immune responses, covering the translational pipeline from discovery research right through to clinical research as it is applied to immunotherapeutics.

Cancer Immunology & Immunotherapy Virtual Issue

In celebration of World Cancer Day 2022, we are pleased to collect together recent articles from our official journals Clinical & Experimental Immunology and Immunotherapy Advances which highlight cutting-edge research into cancer immunology and immunotherapy. This collection features research and reviews on key topics in the field topics such as CAR-T cell therapies, microRNAs, regulatory T cells and checkpoint inhibition-induced adverse events. All articles have been published in 2020 and 2021 and are free to read online.

2021 Editors' Choice Virtual Issue

On behalf of all the editorial team of Clinical & Experimental Immunology, it is our pleasure to present this collection of Editors’ Choice articles from 2021. We believe this collection offers some fine examples of immunological techniques and approaches that provide novel mechanistic or therapeutic insight into the immunopathology of human disease. All articles in this collection have been published in journal issues from 2021 and are free to view online. 

World Diabetes Day 2021: A Joint Virtual Issue with Immunology & Cell Biology

Until the discovery of insulin 100 years ago, type 1 diabetes (T1D) was a fatal disease with no treatment options. To commemorate this discovery on World Diabetes Day, and to celebrate the rich history of T1D research published in the British Society for Immunology and Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology journals, we have prepared a joint Virtual Issue highlighting reviews and original research on T1D in Immunology & Cell Biology and Clinical & Experimental Immunology. The articles cover the etiology of diabetes, correlates of disease progression and therapeutic approaches.

FOCIS 2021 Virtual Issue

In celebration of the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS)​ Virtual Annual Meeting, Clinical & Experimental Immunology is pleased to provide free access to a selection of primary research and review articles that complement the scientific programme of FOCIS 2021. These papers represent recent advances in fields as diverse as tumour immunology, COVID-19 pathophysiology and vaccines, cell therapy, immune genetics and immunoageing.

Celebrating Vaccines: Virtual Issue

Vaccination is one of our great medical advances. In this Virtual Issue we celebrate the importance of vaccines in protecting global health with a selection of reviews and original papers highlighting some of the best vaccine research. These articles from Immunotherapy Advances and Clinical & Experimental Immunology cover a wide range of important topics, from strategies for vaccine intervention against emerging viruses to the roles of B cells and T cells in maintaining protective immunity.

Autoimmunity & Autoinflammation Virtual Issue

We celebrate the theme of this year's International Day of Immunology with a selection of some of our favourite reviews and original research papers on the mechanisms underlying autoinflammation and autoimmunity. These articles in Clinical & Experimental Immunology explore how these processes can contribute to a wide range of diseases, from arthritis to neurodegenerative diseases.

2020 Editors' Choice Virtual Issue

On behalf of all the editorial team of Clinical & Experimental Immunology, it is our pleasure to present this collection of Editors’ Choice articles from 2020. We believe this collection offers some fine examples of immunological techniques and approaches that provide novel mechanistic or therapeutic insight into the immunopathology of human disease. All articles in this collection have been published in journal issues from 2020 and are free to view online. 

COVID-19 Special Issue

In this special issue, Clinical & Experimental Immunology presents a collection of articles on crucial aspects of COVID-19, including original research, reviews and an editorial from Ryan Thwaites (Imperial College London). These papers discuss a variety of topics, including the role of innate immune system in progression of COVID-19, and possible routes to limit severity using immunomodulatory agents. We also present new findings about the antibody response to SARS-CoV-2, relevant for public health serosurveillance, and a thorough summary of vaccine approaches in development and in clinical trial globally.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Week 2020 Virtual Issue

To mark Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Week 2020, Clinical & Experimental Immunology put together a virtual issue highlighting cutting edge research and reviews from recent years covering the most promising areas of  rheumatoid arthritis.

Editors’ Choice 2019 Virtual Issue

On behalf of all the editorial team of Clinical & Experimental Immunology, it is a delight to present this collection of Editors’ Choice articles from 2019. A key part of our role as editors is to identify articles with high relevance to translational immunology that are of broad interest to our readers. We believe this collection offers some fine examples of immunological techniques and approaches that provide novel mechanistic or therapeutic insight into the immunopathology of human disease.
