Mode of delivery can alter an infant’s gut microbiota, irrespective of maternal antibiotic exposure, and this in turn could impact respiratory health in the first year of life, according to research presented at ECCMID.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Virology review entitled ‘An update on the management of hepatitis C virus and human immunodeficiency virus coinfection’, as we ask the authors about their inspiration and the future of this field.
In a new review of the condition, experts from NIAID have called for a galvanized research response to growing cases of acute flaccid myelitis.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa uses a phage to trick the host’s immune system into ignoring it, in turn suppressing bacterial clearance from infected wounds, according to new research.
Microbiome metabolites have been discovered to enhance colon injury in human EHEC infections in a human–mouse comparative study, accounting for species-specific differences in infection tolerance.
Maternal infections, including influenza, can lead to higher rates of adverse fetal outcomes. New research suggests high levels of choline during gestation could mitigate this impact.
