Take a look at the top news stories of the week, including a focus on antimicrobial resistance and industry, and new influenza research.
New findings suggest that biogenesis of small regulatory fragments from tRNA can have wide ranging effects on key aspects of Aedes aegypti vector biology.
The exact mechanism(s) linking fetal Zika infection and congenital microcephaly remains unclear, however, an international team of researchers have now identified a possible role for unfolded protein responses in this process.
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.
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.
Researchers have carried out the largest genetic study of Anopheles gambiae, discovering the spread of resistance and high genetic diversity.
November sees the release of the World Malaria Report, and here we take a look at the key facts and figures.
Researchers have demonstrated that mice previously infected with dengue have protection against Zika virus that appears to be conferred by cytotoxic T cells.
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.
