In new research, the first live-attenuated Zika vaccine has been demonstrated to protected mice against the virus after a single dose.
Researchers have applied concepts from financial mathematical models to help predict the evolution of HIV proteins with the hope this could improve vaccine design.
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 looking at the genome of M. tuberculosis have discovered that HIV co-infection could be influencing how the bacteria are evolving.
Researchers have demonstrated that Trypanosoma brucei, the parasite responsible for sleeping sickness, has its own molecular clock, which could affect the parasite’s sensitivity to treatments.
Researchers have demonstrated that nanoparticles, such as those from burning fossil fuels, appear to reactivate latent herpesviruses in lung tissue.
In this study, the authors investigate the miRNA expression profile of Schistosoma japonicum in response to atesunate providing an overview of the complex mechanism.
New research links clusters of virulence-associated pir genes in malaria parasites with their ability to persist in the body, sustaining transmission once symptoms have subsided.
