Pseudomonas aeruginosa uses a phage to trick the host’s immune system into ignoring it, in turn suppressing bacterial clearance from infected wounds, according to new research.

Microbiome metabolites have been discovered to enhance colon injury in human EHEC infections in a human–mouse comparative study, accounting for species-specific differences in infection tolerance.
A new study has suggested that sleep causes a dip in Gαs-coupled receptor agonists, in turn improving T cell integrin activation – a process T cells use to target viral cells.
New research has provided evidence that basophils might play an important role in the immune response to bacterial infections, preventing the development of sepsis.
New research has suggested that vaccinia viruses trick infected host cells into activating their cell movement mechanism, rapidly spreading the virus.
Genomics is increasingly being adopted into both research and clinical settings. Here, we speak to Dyann Wirth about the use of genomics in the field of malaria, from what it can uncover about the parasite to the hurdles that need to be overcome moving towards elimination.
A study by a team of researchers demonstrates that the commonly known food poisoning pathogen E.coli is integral in promoting health by producing a compound which helps cells absorb iron.
A new study has revealed gender-specific differences in infection and in antibiotic resistance genes during N. gonorrhoeae infection.
New research by NIH-funded scientists has revealed evidence that viral species, particularly herpesviruses, could contribute toward the complex biology underlying Alzheimer’s disease.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Virology review entitled ‘Antiviral therapeutic approaches for human rhinovirus infections’ as we ask author Peter Barlow about antivirals, antibodies and the host response.
