Author, Mark Woolhouse, discusses recent efforts to identify pathogens with pandemic potential and his own work on emerging viruses.
In this preliminary communication, the authors selected and characterized aptamers targeting the 5′-UTR from dengue virus, a sequence with important regulatory elements for its life cycle, with applications as potential antiviral and diagnostic tools.
Researchers have demonstrated that outbreaks of dengue virus have a local structure, and hope their findings on transmission patterns could lead to better targeted interventions.
Researchers have analyzed the clinical characteristics of Zika infection in Canadian travelers returning from the Americas, discovering that severe complications might be more common than previously estimated.
Researchers have demonstrated that a specific subclass of antibody is elevated in patients who develop severe secondary dengue; this could lead to better identification of those at risk and possibly improved treatments and vaccines.
