New research shows that hydrogen peroxide released by Streptococcus pneumoniae inhibits key components of the innate immune system. This contributes to the successful pathogen colonization of the host and causes pneumonia.

New research has uncovered that Mycobacterium tuberculosis releases an antacid that remodels phagosomes, preventing immune cells from destroying the bacteria.
A new study has implicated the cytokine interferon gamma as a major contributor of blood–brain barrier breakdown in central nervous system infections.
In this interview we speak to Daniella Lefteri about her research on modulating arbovirus infection by targeting mosquito saliva, and what avenues this could present for new antiviral treatments.
New research investigating possible interactions between Epstein–Barr virus and neurological diseases has successfully infected neuronal-like cells in vitro, with the hope to use these as a model for studying this virus in the future.
Innate lymphoid cells, a relatively newly discovered class of immune cells, play a pivotal role in controlling early tuberculosis infection, according to new research.
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.
