H3N2 Viruses Mutate During Vaccine Production but New Tech Could Fix It

A new technology may make H3N2 vaccine development a bit easier. Researchers describe a new cell line that enables better growth of H3N2 for vaccine use. The virus is also far less likely to mutate ... read more

Improving Researchers' Abilities to Forecast Epidemics

An annual influenza season forecasting challenge issued by the US Centers for Disease Control provides unique insight into epidemic forecasting, according to a new ... read more

Most Microbes in Hummingbird Feeders Do Not Pose Health Hazard

A new study is one of the first to address the potential for sugar water from hummingbird feeders to act as a vector for avian -- or even zoonotic -- pathogens. It found that the majority of microbes ... read more

Diet May Be a Key Factor for Influenza A Virus Exposure in Wild African Mammals

Given the importance and wide distribution of Influenza A viruses, it is surprising how little is known about infections of wild mammals. A new study sheds light on which species are commonly ... read more

Bat Influenza Viruses Could Infect Humans

Bats don't only carry the deadly Ebola virus, but are also a reservoir for a new type of influenza virus. These newly discovered flu viruses could potentially also attack the cells of humans and ... read more

A Lack of Antibody Diversity May Make the Elderly More Susceptible to the Flu

The influenza vaccine may be less effective in the elderly because their B cells are less capable of producing antibodies that can adapt to protect against new viral strains, researchers report. With ... read more

How Well Can H7N9 and H5N8 Genetically Mix With a Seasonal Strain?

Emory scientists have been probing the RNA packaging factors that limit reassortment between avian H7N9/H5N8 strains and a well-known strain (H3N2) that has been dominating the last few human flu ... read more

Investing in Antibiotics Critical to Saving Lives During Pandemic Influenza Outbreaks

Researchers have developed a mathematical framework to estimate the value of investing in developing and conserving an antibiotic to mitigate the burden of bacterial infections caused by resistant ... read more

Heat Waves, Food Insecurity Due to Climate Change May Weaken Immune Systems

Heat waves can reduce the body's immune response to flu, according to new research. The results have implications for how climate change may affect the future of vaccinations and nutrition. ... read more

Flu, Flu-Like Illnesses Linked to Increased Risk of Stroke, Neck Artery Tears

Flu-like illnesses are associated with an increased risk of stroke and neck artery dissection. The risk of stroke and neck artery dissections are greatest within a month of a flu-like ... read more

New Anti-Influenza Drugs

Researchers have designed drugs which could help combat any potential new flu pandemic, by targeting the receptors of the cells by which the virus gains entry to the human ... read more

Anti-Flu Antibodies Can Inhibit Two Different Viral Proteins

Researchers have discovered that antibodies that may form the basis of a universal flu vaccine inhibit a second viral protein in addition to the one that they bind. The study reveals that antibodies ... read more

Flu Vaccination Keeps COPD Patients out of the Hospital

A new study establishes that patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) face heightened risks of death, critical illness, and hospitalization if they develop the flu and demonstrates ... read more

Assessing the Performance of Multiple Influenza Forecasting Models

In what the authors believe is the first documented comparison of several real-time infectious disease forecasting models by different teams across many seasons, five research groups report this week ... read more

Harnessing Multiple Data Streams and Artificial Intelligence to Better Predict Flu

Influenza is highly contagious and easily spreads as people move about and travel, making tracking and forecasting flu activity a challenge. While the CDC continuously monitors patient visits for ... read more

Lung Neuropeptide Exacerbates Lethal Influenza Virus Infection

Researchers found that lung immune cells (phagocytes) produce increased levels of neuropeptide Y (NPY) when mice are infected with severe influenza virus. NPY and its receptor form the NPY-Y1R axis. ... read more

Respiratory Microbiome May Influence Your Susceptibility to Flu

Specific respiratory microbiome communities may be linked to influenza susceptibility, according to a new ... read more

Close Flu Vaccine Supply Gaps to Ease Flu Seasons, Make Pandemics Less Deadly

Gaps in the logic of how we restock flu vaccines may be costing hundreds of lives, or more. A new model to tweak the gaps could save hundreds to hundreds-of-thousands of people and millions to ... read more

Flu Is Serious for Pregnant Women and Others at High Risk

Those at high-risk for flu complications such as hospitalization and death -- including pregnant women -- should be tested and treated as soon as possible, suggest new influenza ... read more

Subway Train Travel Linked to Spread of Flu-Like Illnesses
