In this report, we look at three upcoming clinical studies that will be investigating coccidioidomycosis, its pathogenesis and how treatment for this potentially fatal infection can be improved.
Could nanoconstructs be utilized to fight infection? This Editorial discusses the potential of photoactivatable nanodrugs to overcome the growing problem of acquired antibiotic resistance in bacteria as well as the intrinsic resistance of biofilm-associated infections.
Researchers have suggested that a virion protein known as BNRF1, produced by the Epstein–Barr Virus, may be responsible for tumor formation.
In this interview, expert Robert Colebunders discusses his investigations into the potential parasitic cause of nodding syndrome, the prospects for preventing this neglected disorder in the future and the importance of multi-country and transdisciplinary studies.
In this study, the authors investigate the miRNA expression profile of Schistosoma japonicum in response to atesunate providing an overview of the complex mechanism.
Researchers have uncovered a mechanism utilized by Zika virus to cross the placental barrier; this has provided an insight into the virus’ ability to cause birth defects such as microcephaly
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.
