Microbiome metabolites have been discovered to enhance colon injury in human EHEC infections in a human–mouse comparative study, accounting for species-specific differences in infection tolerance.
The latest report from the ECDC and WHO has analysed the 2017 data for the European region, suggesting that despite an overall decline in the number of cases, TB remains a major public health challenge.
Maternal infections, including influenza, can lead to higher rates of adverse fetal outcomes. New research suggests high levels of choline during gestation could mitigate this impact.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Virology review, entitled: ‘TRIM proteins: an emerging antiviral protein family’, as we ask the authors about TRIM proteins, viral resistance and the future of this field.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology review as we ask the authors about quorum quenching and using nanoparticles as antibiotics.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology paper as we ask the authors about the challenges in treating respiratory tract infections and how nanomedicines could help.
