Some child hearing loss tied to virus in pregnancy

Hearing loss in a child may have links to a virus that Mom got while she was pregnant, according to a new study.

In kids that had some degree of hearing loss, about 9 percent also had cytomegalovirus (CMV) at birth, says a new study in the Archives of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

Chemists introduce 'killer' bacteria-fighting paper

Chemists at Bar-Ilan University in Israel say they have developed and successfully tested "killer paper" coated with silver nanoparticles--each roughly 1/50,000 the width of a human hair--that can fight bacteria such as E. coli and S. aureus.

Described in the American Chemical Society journal... Read More

Scripps Research scientists find measles' natural nemesis

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have found that a known enzyme in cells protects against measles virus, likely by altering the virus's genetic material, RNA. Cells lacking the enzyme become highly vulnerable to the virus's destructive effects. The enzyme also protects against severa... Read More

Are all virus particles infectious?

Chris Upton, a contributor to the virology toolbox, has raised an important point about multiplicity of infection:

Perhaps this is a place to bring up particle to pfu ratio? The above is great for when talking about phage, for example, when the ratio approaches 1. But with something like poli... Read More

More than a game: Researchers design video games that feature real microorganisms

Do video games change behavior? This question may be the subject of debate for years, but researchers have now shown the answer to be yes—for microorganism behavior, at least.

A research group led by Stanford bioengineering professor Ingmar Riedel-Kruse has developed several real video games,... Read More

Need a new metabolic pathway? Steal a few genes

Haloarcula marismortui, a micro-organism that lives in the salty waters of the Dead Sea, is the proud owner of a unique metabolic pathway. So far it is only the third pathway of its kind uncovered in organisms that use oxygen, seemingly cobbled together using genes stolen from bacteria.

When ... Read More

'Smart Bomb' RNA Molecule Could Take Out Drug-Resistant HIV

An RNA molecule engineered to attack HIV in two different ways is showing positive results, according to a study in Science Translational Medicine. The researchers say that the molecule, which both curbs viral replication inside infected cells and neutralizes free-floating virus, could help pati... Read More

Small Molecules May Prevent Ebola Infection

Ebola, a virus that causes deadly hemorrhagic fever in humans, has no known cure or vaccine. But a new study by University of Illinois at Chicago scientists has uncovered a family of small molecules which appear to bind to the virus's outer protein coat and may inhibit its entry into human cells...

New Technique Focuses on Transcription

Converting the code contained in genes to the proteins that make up a living organism is one of the most important and highly regulated tasks performed within a cell. A new tool from Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) scientists is offering researchers a new ability to freeze that process at... Read More

Nanoparticle Vaccine Protects Against Stomach Flu

A new vaccine strategy using nanoparticles as carriers may be the key to developing a vaccine against norovirus, one of the most common causes of foodborne disease in the United States. Researchers from the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center report promising findings in the January 20... Read More

H1N1 provides new universal flu vax hope

Thanks to the H1N1 flu virus, researchers may have found a key to developing a universal flu vaccine. According to a University of Chicago and Emory University study, people infected with H1N1 in 2009 developed antibodies to other flu strains. So, researchers believe that when given the correct ...

Malaria Parasite Caught Red-Handed Invading Blood Cells

Australian scientists using new image and cell technologies have for the first time caught malaria parasites in the act of invading red blood cells. The researchers, from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne, Australia, and the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), achieved this lo... Read More

Jeans worn for 15 months in study

As it turns out, wearing the same pair of denim jeans nearly every day for 15 months isn't all that dirty after all.

Josh Le, 20, is a third-year University of Alberta student who, alongside professor Rachel McQueen, discovered the bacterial count of a 15-month worn and unwashed pair of jeans... Read More

Haiti Cholera vaccine plan splits experts
