In our latest infographic we provide a visual snapshot of the infections and immune processes that have been linked with the microbiome thus far, explaining some of the evidence
With the microbiome becoming a much talked about topic in recent years, we spoke to Sergio Serrano-Villar, author of Future Microbiology’s top-read article of 2017 entitled: ‘How can the gut microbiota affect immune recovery in HIV infected individuals?’.
Researchers have demonstrated that the genetic variation between strains could explain the clinical variation among individuals infected with the same pathogen.
Interferons are critical for a mother’s immune response during Zika infection, but could have detrimental impacts on placental and fetal development, according to new research.
In this Editorial from Future Virology the authors discuss maternal immunization as a strategy for preventing neonatal HSV infection.
To round up 2017, we asked our Expert panel to choose their top papers from the year. Here, you can discover these articles and the reasons why they were chosen.
Researchers have established a map of protein interactions for the replication machinery of chronic viruses, shedding insight into viral strategies and uncovering potential drug targets.
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.
