A study has evaluated de-identified data from wearable devices, discovering that this could improve real-time prediction of flu-like illnesses when compared with current surveillance methods.
New research suggests that sepsis may be associated with one in five deaths, double the previous estimate, but overall trends suggest incidence and mortality may be decreasing.
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.
A novel study conducted by researchers at Harvard Medical School (MA, USA) has identified how the maternal gut microbiome could protect their newborn children from E. coli infection.
It has been reported that Chinese scientists believe a new coronavirus may be the cause of mysterious pneumonia cases in the city of Wuhan. A total of 59 patients with pneumonia of unknown etiology have been reported to the WHO by authorities in China, as of 9 January 2020.
Administering the BCG vaccine intravenously, as opposed to intradermally, could improve the efficacy of the immunization according to new research in macaque models.
The first strain of flu we encounter during childhood could impact our immune responses to future infections, according to new research.
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.
