Research & Publications
Dr. Askenase’s immunology accomplishments have been in various fields: Immunochemistry, Cellular Immunity, B Cell and Antibody Responses, Immunoparistology, Basophils, Mast Cells, Serotonin, Leukotrienes, Prostaglandins, IgE receptors, Asthma, iNKT Cells, NK cells, and recently Suppressor / Regulatory T Cells.
Unique B-1 B cell discoveries include their role in T cell immunity; namely contact sensitivity (CS) and delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH). Current work involves a new regulatory suppressor T cell mechanism involving production of antigen-specific suppressor exosomes with coating of an activated exosome subpopulation with chosen antibody light chains and further their association with particular miRNA for dual antigen and gene specificity.
