New research describes the use of small-molecule CD4 mimetic compounds that force HIV to undergo conformational changes, exposing normally hidden parts of the envelope and potential new targets.
A team from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University has used cryo-EM to model the nucleocapsid protein of Ebola virus, potentially uncovering novel drug targets.
In this editorial, the authors assess the insights that could be provided by PET imaging in evaluating and understanding the progression of neurological sequale in Zika virus.
Research presented at ASTMH has demonstrated long-term neurological damage in those with a history of West Nile virus infection, even in individuals who experienced mild, or no, symptoms.
Researchers have developed a workflow to enable metabolomic and microbiome data to be mapped onto a 3D organ reconstruction, shedding insights on spatial variations.
For the first time, physicists have created a 3D movie that demonstrates a virus preparing to infect a healthy cell via genomic rearrangement – leading to the potential to better treat an array of human diseases caused by viruses.
In this editorial, the authors dicuss how mobile phones have the potential to transform traditional uses of imaging, sensing and diagnostic systems, especially for point-of-care applications and field settings.
Researchers have demonstrated an imaging technique utilizing PET, which allows non-invasive and real-time monitoring of dengue infection in mouse models.
A team of UK-based researchers have been awarded a major grant to investigate the relationship between alterations in the gut microbiota and neurodegenerative disorders.
