Scientists have synthetically engineered mosquitoes to prevent transmission of dengue virus to humans. This potentially could lead to genetic approaches to controlling the spread of dengue virus among populations.
When investigating the effect tolerance to a single drug has when combination therapy is being used to prevent antibiotic resistance, a team of researchers demonstrated that antimicrobial tolerance can promote resistance.
Chinese authorities have confirmed that the virus can be passed from person-to-person and over 3000 cases have been confirmed.
Administering the BCG vaccine intravenously, as opposed to intradermally, could improve the efficacy of the immunization according to new research in macaque models.
A team from the University of California, San Diego have created a new CRISPR editing system that can effectively target antibiotic resistance genes. The system is based on a positive feedback loop and has numerous potential applications, such as treating chronic bacterial infections.
Researchers have discovered an association between the spread of HIV and quantity of extracellular vesicles from lactobacilli, suggesting a protective mechanism to inhibit the spread of HIV infection.
