Mice Engrafted With Human Immune Cells May Provide Clues to Better Prevention and Treatment of Typhoid Fever

Better treatments and prevention for typhoid fever may emerge from a laboratory model that has just been developed for the disease. The model is based on transplanting human immune stem cells from umbilical cord blood into mice that are susceptible to infections.

The transplanted cells live a... Read More

Ape dung reveals gorilla origin of malaria

Humans may have started out malaria-free then caught the disease from gorillas, an analysis of ape faeces suggests.

Malaria is one of our most devastating diseases. Apes carry related malaria-causing parasites, so biologists believed humans were already infected when they split from other gre... Read More

Clues to Common Food Poisoning: Salmonella Creates Environment in Human Intestines to Foster Its Own Growth

A study led by researchers at UC Davis has found how the bacteria Salmonella enterica -- a common cause of food poisoning -- exploits immune response in the human gut to enhance its own reproductive and transmission success. The strategy gives Salmonella a growth advantage over the beneficial b... Read More
