Hemorrhagic Fevers: Countering Inflammation to Prevent Circulatory Failure


Hemorrhagic fevers are severe viral diseases that are often fatal. Researchers from the University of Basel have now identified messenger substances of the immune system, which in infected mice lead to the development of shock. These results open up new possibilities for the development of ...


Unknown virus in ‘throwaway’ DNA discovered

A chance discovery has opened up a new method of finding unknown viruses


In research scientists from Oxford University’s Department of Zoology have revealed that Next-Generation Sequencing and its associated online DNA databases could be used in the field of viral discovery. They have developed algorithms that detect DNA from viruses that happen to be in the blood or ...


Sun Pharma & NIV sign agreement to fight Zika, Chikungunya and Dengue


Sun Pharma and The National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune, an institution of the Indian Council of Medical Research, Department of Health Research, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare , New Delhi announced that they have signed an agreement for testing phytopharmaceutical, biologic and ...

Inflammation Triggers Unsustainable Immune Response to Chronic Viral Infection


Scientists at the University of Basel discovered a fundamental new mechanism explaining the inadequate immune defense against chronic viral infection. These results may open up new avenues for vaccine development. In the course of an infection or upon vaccination, specialized cells of our immune ...

Simulations describe HIV's 'diabolical delivery device'


From a virus's point of view, invading our cells is a matter of survival. The virus makes a living by highjacking cellular processes to produce more of the proteins that make it up. From our point of view, the invasion can be a matter of survival too: surviving the virus. To combat viral diseases ...

Open Science to track virus outbreaks


In recent years, we have witnessed multiple epidemics of viral diseases such as Ebola or Zika. Rapid targeted intervention is key to containment. Real-time data integration and analysis can help public health authorities to maximize efficacy of intervention strategies. Dr. Richard Neher from the ...

Nanocrystalline cellulose modified into an efficient viral inhibitor


Researchers have succeeded in creating a surface on nano-sized cellulose crystals that imitates a biological structure. The surface adsorbs viruses and disables them. The results can prove useful in the development of antiviral ointments and surfaces, for instance. There are many viral diseases ...


Tracking viral DNA in the cell


The medical, humanitarian and economical impact of viral diseases is devastating to humans and livestock. There are no adequate therapies available against most viral diseases, largely because the mechanisms by which viruses infect cells are poorly known. An interdisciplinary team of researchers ...


La Jolla Institute's surprising finding could alter the face of dengue vaccine development

New data on T cells' protective role suggests need for new approach to dengue vaccine design


As efforts to create a strong and effective vaccine for the dreaded dengue virus continue to hit snags, a new study from researchers at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology offers surprising evidence that suggests the need for a revamped approach to dengue vaccine design. The finding ...


Novel coronavirus well-adapted to humans, susceptible to immunotherapy


The new coronavirus that has emerged in the Middle East is well-adapted to infecting humans but could potentially be treated with immunotherapy, according to a study to be published online in the journal of the American Society for Microbiology. The study indicates that the virus HCoV-EMC can ...
