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.
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.
