Scientists have analyzed trends on Twitter and Google in order to devise a mathematical theory that could help predict tipping points in vaccine scares.
A newly-developed single-dose cholera vaccine has shown promise in clinical trials, suggesting it could provide faster protection and control outbreaks more rapidly than the standard regimen.
Researchers have studied macaque models of antiretroviral-treated HIV, discovering a unique pattern of inflammation that may underlie neurological impairments.
Researchers have investigated the safety and virologic effect of an HIV booster vaccine in infected individuals on antiretroviral therapy during acute or early infection. Although no beneficial effects were determined, the study provides much needed insights for future efforts.
Researchers have demonstrated that facial cleanliness can be reliably measured, suggesting that this should be incorporated into surveys assessing trachoma control efforts.
Scientists have revealed proteins, termed RIFINs, expressed on the surface of infected erythrocytes that may help the malaria parasite to suppress the host immune response, leading to severe infection.
New research has suggested that mosquitoes are more likely to transmit dengue virus in warmer weather, indicating climate patterns as an early warning system for outbreaks.
Scientists have revealed that a human protein – identified as YTHDF2 – could prevent cancer by restricting the human herpes virus 8, otherwise known as Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus.
For the first time researchers have cloned and characterized NANP-reactive memory B-cell antibodies in humans, which have the ability to potently inhibit parasite transmission in vivo.
