Researchers from the Japanese National Institute of Infectious Disease have identified the American subtype of Zika as the most virulent for each of the contributing characteristics tested, when compared with Pacific and Southeast Asian subtypes.
Findings from a study at Portland State University suggest the severity of sepsis development and the subsequent outcome can be worsened through eating a ‘Western’ diet, high in both sugar and fat.
A biomimetic, micromotor vaccine formulation has shown promising results in immunizing against Staphylococcus aureus in mouse models.
Researchers have discovered Candida albicans can cross the blood–brain barrier, triggering an immune response that results in the formation of granuloma-type structures and memory impairments.
An mRNA-based vaccine has been demonstrated to protect against Powassan virus in mice, in addition to also conferring protection against the more distantly related Langat virus.
Small molecules that block bacterial toxin formation have shown promise against Gram-positive bacteria in mouse models.
A high-fiber diet can boost the immune response and increase survival in mice infected with influenza virus, according to new research.
Researchers have identified that two flu strains are associated with changes to hippocampal structure and function in female mice alongside memory impairment – posing a threat to healthy brain function.
A new study has revealed that a promising antioxidant drug could prevent sexual transmission of the Zika virus, offering a potential role for the drug in preventing spread among humans.
