Researchers have demonstrated that nanoparticles, such as those from burning fossil fuels, appear to reactivate latent herpesviruses in lung tissue.
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.
Researchers have demonstrated that a new whole-parasite vaccine could provide up to 100% protection in clinical trials carried out at the University of Tübingen (Germany).
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.
A new meta-analysis has presented findings reporting that regular vitamin D supplementation could drastically lower the risk of acute respiratory 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.
Researchers have suggested that disease “superspreaders” may have been responsible for two-thirds of cases in the West Africa Ebola epidemic. Targeting these individuals could lead to better disease control measures in future outbreaks.
In this study, the authors investigate the miRNA expression profile of Schistosoma japonicum in response to atesunate providing an overview of the complex mechanism.
