Researchers have studied macaque models of antiretroviral-treated HIV, discovering a unique pattern of inflammation that may underlie neurological impairments.

Scientists have revealed proteins, termed RIFINs, expressed on the surface of infected erythrocytes that may help the malaria parasite to suppress the host immune response, leading to severe infection.
For the first time researchers have cloned and characterized NANP-reactive memory B-cell antibodies in humans, which have the ability to potently inhibit parasite transmission in vivo.
In this World AIDS Day interview we speak to Richard Koup, who was recently an author on a study reporting a trispecific antibody able to target 99% of HIV strains.
A new study has identified cyclin-dependent kinases as the key regulator of chromatin snares that are essential for neutrophil immune defense.
Researchers from Yale University have suggested that the immune response may be responsible for neurological complications in Zika infection, as opposed to the virus itself.
Scientists have explored how the viral genome affects the infectious potency of HIV; discovering that viruses have likely evolved to remove CG dinucleotides in order to avoid surveillance to mammalian defence mechanisms.
Researchers have demonstrated that mice previously infected with dengue have protection against Zika virus that appears to be conferred by cytotoxic T cells.
Scientists discover a new powerful protective immune pathway triggered by ion channels in airway epithelial cells.
Researchers have uncovered five new targets for malaria vaccine development, suggesting that targeting multiple steps of erythrocyte invasion is more likely to produce an effective vaccine.
