Early antiretroviral treatment in people with HIV infection could allow the generation of more functional and persistent CD8 T cell responses. The results, which suggest a long-term immune memory, could have implications for HIV vaccine development.

In this interview we speak to Vineet Menachery about his recent talk at the Microbiology Society’s Annual Conference (8–11 April, Belfast, UK) suggesting that CoV emergence is more complicated than receptor binding alone.
Based on the demonstrated potential of laser-induced vapor nanobubbles to treat bacterial biofilm infections, we provide recommendations for future work in order to further mature this new technology into a promising anti-biofilm approach.
A new anaerobic organ-on-a-chip model has been demonstrated to support a complex community of gut microbes under low-oxygen conditions. This model of the microbiome could open opportunities for drug testing and development.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology review, entitled: ‘Pathogen-associated acute encephalitis syndrome: therapeutics and management’, as we ask the authors about the challenges facing this field, the use of complementary and alternative medicine and what research needs to be done.
Men and women have different risks of developing surgical site infections depending on the type of operation they undergo, according to new research being presented at ECCMID.
Research presented at ECCMID examining influenza transmission has discovered that a substantial proportion of patients and healthcare workers shed the flu virus before clinical symptoms appear.
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.
