Oral vaccines are less immunogenic when given to infants in low-income countries, compared with high-income countries, limiting their potential public health impact and in this review the authors evaluate the factors that might contribute to this phenomenon.
This study, recently published in Future Microbiology, aimed to study the effects of encoded heat-shock protein 90 homolog (htpG) on the selected virulence factors responsible for pathogenesis and biofilm formation of P. aeruginosa.
This research, published in Future Microbiology, screens host proteins for those that interact with EspF via flow cytometry and high-throughput screening to try and shed light on how EspF affects host cells to induce colitis and even colorectal carcinogenesis.
In this article, from Future Medicinal Chemistry, the researchers synthesize a new series of pyrazolo[1,5-c]pyrimidines via hybridization strategies and evaluate these for in vitro activity against leishmaniasis
In this Editorial from Future Virology the authors discuss maternal immunization as a strategy for preventing neonatal HSV infection.
The term resistome was first used to account for the set of primary antibiotic resistance genes that could be eventually transferred to human pathogens, this editorial delves into the evolution of the mutational resistome of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in cystic fibrosis.
All epidemically successful HIV groups started to spread in early 20th century, this perspective piece looks into the factors that enabled adaptation of SIV to be sexually transmitted among humans.
In this study the authors assess the burden of illness, impacts and costs associated with surgical site infections, concluding that SSIs impart a broad and significant impact on both patients and their families.
This study looks at Candida tropicalis, evaluating if radiation used in radiotherapy can cause changes in the virulence potential.
In this article, carbapenem antimicrobial susceptibility testing profiles were determined in a population of Klebsiella pneumoniae, and their resistance assessed based on previous and current Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute criteria.
