    Neandertal DNA Affects Modern Ethnic Difference in Immune Response
    Two studies may explain why people of African descent respond more strongly to infection, and are more prone to autoimmune diseases


    DNA acquired from breeding with Neanderthals may explain why people of European descent respond differently to infection than those of African descent, two studies suggest. The findings might also offer insight into why people of African descent are more prone to autoimmune diseases caused by an overactive immune system ...
