China Bird Virus (H7N9) may be a Silent Threat

Scientists' preliminary assessment of the Chinese bird flu strain that has killed three people in China show that the virus can spread through poultry without showing any symptoms while seriously sickening humans. Based on preliminary study of the genetic data and Chinese lab testing, the H7N9 virus appears to infect ...

First U.S. cases of whooping cough caused by a germ that may be resistant to the vaccine

The study suggests that the new whooping cough strain is resistant to Pertactin, a component of the acellular vaccines. This resistance may be why we are seeing increase in the number of people getting the disease. Original source: Pertactin-Negative Variants of Bordetella pertussis in the United States - NEJM http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc1209369

FDA Approves New Type of Flu Vaccine, Flublok

FDA Approves Cell Culture-Based Seasonal Flu Vaccine

FDA says it has approved the first seasonal flu vaccine made using cell culture system rather than egg based. This process shaves off four weeks in the production of the flu vaccine. Novartis produces Flucelvax.

Interferon-inducible transmembrane (IFITM) protein family members potently restrict the replication of multiple pathogenic viruses including influenza viruses

IFITM3 is seen to be essential in defending the host against influenza A virus in vivo. Mice lacking Ifitm3 displayed fulminant viral pneumonia vs. wild type; protection was achieved by re-introduction of Ifitm3. They also found clinical correlation using genotype analysis with influenza virus load. IFITM3 may strongly alter the ...

Annual Vaccination of Children Good or Bad?

Recent study demonstrates CD8+ T cell response is better in non-vaccinated children than in vaccinated children. The study argues that by providing an attenuated influenza vaccine to children, the vaccine would protect children better with virus-specific CD8+ T cell responses and against other drift variants.

Manuka honey as a treatement for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

New research shows manuka honey may inhibit cell division for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. A growing homeopathic treatment for MRSA, is this a possible treatment to reduce the bacteria infection enough that the immune system can take over?

Possible Broad-Spectrum Antiviral Therapeutic

MIT researchers have developed a new broad-spectrum antiviral approach called Double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) Activated Caspase Oligomerizer (DRACO) that selectively induces apoptosis in cells containing viral dsRNA that rapidly killing infected cells without harming uninfected cells.
