Jan. 17, 2019 — Coinfection with visceral leishmaniasis (VL) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has been observed in at least 35 countries on four continents and requires special case management. Currently, the ... read more

Herpes Viruses and Tumors Evolved to Learn How to Manipulate the Same Ancient RNA

Jan. 14, 2019 — Herpes viral infections use the ancient genetic material found in the human genome to proliferate, mimicking the same process tumors have been found to manipulate, Mount Sinai researchers have shown ... read more

Experimental Antibody 'Cocktail' Protects Animals from Three Deadly Ebola Viruses

Jan. 10, 2019 — Scientists have developed a combination of monoclonal antibodies that protected animals from all three Ebola viruses that cause human disease. The antibody 'cocktail,' called MBP134, is the ... read more

Madariaga Virus Spreads to Haiti

Jan. 10, 2019 — Madariaga virus (MADV), or South American eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV), has -- until now -- been found primarily in animals of South and Central America, with the first human outbreak ... read more

Viral Production Is Not Essential for Deaths Caused by Food-Borne Pathogen

Jan. 10, 2019 — The replication of a bacterial virus is not necessary to cause lethal disease in mice infected with a food-borne pathogen called Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC), according to a new study. ... read more

Jan. 10, 2019 — Scientists have created an 'on' switch for CRISPR-Cas9 that allows it to be turned on in select cells only, specifically those that have a particular protein-cutting enzyme, or protease. ... read more

Jan. 10, 2019 — In a first for plant virology, a team from CIRAD recently used nanopore technology to sequence the entire genomes of two yam RNA viruses. This as yet little-used but promising molecular biology ... read more

Lung Neuropeptide Exacerbates Lethal Influenza Virus Infection

Jan. 10, 2019 — 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

Malaria Vaccine Passes Test in Humans

Jan. 10, 2019 — A vaccine against fatal pregnancy malaria shows promising results in the first tests in humans. The new study has taken a vaccine all the way from discovery of a mechanism through development and ... read more

Jan. 9, 2019 — Specific respiratory microbiome communities may be linked to influenza susceptibility, according to a new ... read more

Jan. 9, 2019 — A new study explains why it is so hard to increase public vaccination levels even when evidence indicates that vaccines are safe and ... read more

Schizophrenia Linked With Abnormal Immune Response to Epstein-Barr Virus

Jan. 9, 2019 — New research shows that people in the study with schizophrenia also have higher levels of antibodies against the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a herpes virus that causes infectious mononucleosis, ... read more

Jan. 9, 2019 — Genetics may play a bigger role in the body's disease-fighting ability than scientists previously thought, according to the results from a new study of ... read more

Fighting Human Disease With Birth Control ... for Mosquitoes

Jan. 8, 2019 — A newly discovered protein that is crucial for egg production in mosquitoes opens a possibility for 'mosquito birth control.' The approach might offer a way to reduce mosquito populations ... read more

Bacterial Immunity and Infectious Disease

Jan. 8, 2019 — Patients with cystic fibrosis are often infected by pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacterium that infects the lungs and prevents breathing, often causing death. P. aeruginosa itself can also be infected ... read more

Jan. 8, 2019 — Scientists have developed an analytic method that can very precisely detect viral infections using immune ... read more

Antibiotic Resistance in the Environment Linked to Fecal Pollution

Jan. 8, 2019 — A study shows that 'crAssphage', a virus specific to bacteria in human feces, is highly correlated to the abundance of antibiotic resistance genes in environmental ... read more

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

Jan. 8, 2019 — 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

Faulty Immune Receptor Could Be Reason Why Many Face HIV Complications

Jan. 7, 2019 — Scientists have discovered SLAMF7, an immune receptor, has the ability to tone down the body's immune response when activated on certain white blood cells, called 'monocytes.' The ... read more

Jan. 4, 2019 — Scientists have identified wildlife species that are the most likely to host flaviviruses such as Zika, West Nile, dengue and yellow fever. They created a global flavivirus hotspot map from their ... read more
