A study from a Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) research team has identified the specific function of a protein found in HIV and related viruses that appears to slow down viral spread in the earliest stages of infection. But they also found that, after initially slowing down the spread of infection, that function may help the […]Continue Reading ...
Patients with cystic fibrosis are often infected by pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacterium that infects the lungs and prevents breathing, often causing death. P. aeruginosa itself can also be infected by viruses, which can affect the clinical outcomes of cystic fibrosis patients. “Just like humans get infected by bacteria, the bacteria get infected by viruses,” said […]Continue Reading ...
A majority of the HIV-infected cells that persist in HIV-infected individuals even during suppressive antiretroviral therapy (ART) originated from cellular proliferation, not viral replication, according to new research published in Nature Communications. Reducing the population size of this “reservoir” of infected cells represents the largest challenge for cure of HIV. Based on these results, study […]Continue Reading ...
A team led by Professor Arne Skerra at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed an innovative strategy for preventing the anthrax bacterium from absorbing iron, which is crucial for its survival. It does so by neutralizing a special iron complexing agent produced by the bacterium. Because the anthrax pathogen only spreads in the […]Continue Reading ...
July 11, 2018 A team of scientists from The Forsyth Institute, a global leader in oral health research, in collaboration with the NIH-funded Pediatric HIV/AIDS Cohort Study (PHACS), has published the results of a new study indicating that differences in the mouth bacteria of youth born with HIV may increase their risk of cavities. The […]Continue Reading ...
HIV infecting a human cell. Credit: NIH Researchers have provided new insight into the cellular processes behind the ‘shock and kill’ approach to curing HIV, which they say challenges the effectiveness of the treatment. Their study, published in the journal eLife, suggests the need to explore alternative treatment strategies against HIV—a virus which 36.7 million […]Continue Reading ...

A new study reveals that Hispanic HIV-infected adults in the United States are at a higher risk of developing cancers caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) than Hispanics from the general population. Published early online in CANCER, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the findings highlight the need for continued efforts to develop […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: pixabay By destroying the regulatory genes of the AIDS virus HIV-1 using the genome editing system CRISPR/Cas9, a Japanese research group has succeeded in blocking the production of HIV-1 by infected cells. Human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) infection is a chronic disease affecting more than 35 million people worldwide. The infection can be controlled by […]Continue Reading ...
July 3, 2018 Fetal death in utero occurred in more than one-fourth of monkeys infected in the laboratory with Zika virus in early pregnancy, according to new research published in Nature Medicine. The finding raises the concern that Zika virus-associated pregnancy loss in humans may be more common than currently thought, according to the study […]Continue Reading ...
By Dr Ananya Mandal, MDMay 22, 2018 At least nine individuals have died due to the deadly Nipah virus in Kerala, India. Over 25 have been infected with this virus in the outbreak say official sources. Nipah virus is a deadly virus that spread rapidly among populations and has a death rate of between 40 […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain UC San Francisco scientists have uncovered new mechanisms by which HIV hides in infected cells, resting in a latent state that evades the body’s immune system and prevents antiviral drugs from flushing it out. The findings, published online February 28, 2018, in Science Translational Medicine, could help scientists design and test […]Continue Reading ...
August 1, 2017 Gilead Sciences, Inc. as of late introduced that the U.S. Meals and Drug Management (FDA) has authorized up to date labeling for Epclusa® (sofosbuvir 400mg/velpatasvir 100mg), the primary all-oral, pan-genotypic, once-daily unmarried pill routine (STR) for the medication of adults with power hepatitis C virus (HCV) an infection, to incorporate use in […]Continue Reading ...
