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.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Virology review, entitled: ‘TRIM proteins: an emerging antiviral protein family’, as we ask the authors about TRIM proteins, viral resistance and the future of this field.
Researchers have investigated a toxin–antitoxin system in tuberculosis as a therapeutic target, providing the first high-resolution details.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology review as we ask the authors about quorum quenching and using nanoparticles as antibiotics.
Findings from a study at Portland State University suggest the severity of sepsis development and the subsequent outcome can be worsened through eating a ‘Western’ diet, high in both sugar and fat.
New research has developed a nanoparticle formulation that can knock down a key chlamydia binding protein and simultaneously induce autophagy – showing promise against this infection.
Researchers from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute have developed a novel genetic tool for detecting fast and accurate measures of latent HIV.
