Enterovirus Likely to Spread Through Schools, Experts Say

A rare virus is marching through the Midwest just in time for back-to-school, the time of year when viruses start to spread rapidly between students before infecting the rest of the population.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is looking into hundreds of suspected cases of ... Read More

To fight nasty digestive bugs, scientists set out to build a better gut -- using stem cells

Researchers at the University of Michigan are studying the ecology of microbes in the GI tract in hopes of developing novel diagnostic tests and effective treatments for intestinal disease. How are they studying this? By creating tiny gut ecosystems! Using undifferentiated stem cells, the inv... Read More

Foodborne bacteria can cause disease in some breeds of chickens after all

Contrary to popular belief, the foodborne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni is not a harmless commensal in chickens but can cause disease in some breeds of poultry according to research. Campylobacter jejuni is the most frequent cause of foodborne bacterial gastroenteritis in the world and the Cente... Read More

Researchers eliminate HIV from cultured human cells for first time

HIV-1, the most common type of the virus that causes AIDS, has proved to be tenacious, inserting its genome permanently into its victims' DNA, forcing patients to take a lifelong drug regimen to control the virus and prevent a fresh attack. Now, a team of researchers has designed a way to snip o... Read More

Human trial of experimental Ebola vaccine begins this week

A highly anticipated test of an experimental Ebola vaccine will begin this week at the National Institutes of Health, amid mounting anxiety about the spread of the deadly virus in West Africa.

After an expedited review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, researchers were given the green... Read More

Ten questions about Ebola virus (in Spanish)

The Ebola outbreak is out of control in Africa, but it is not a global threat, why? Read More

Transmission of Ebola virus

As the West African epidemic of Ebola virus grows, so does misinformation about the virus, particularly how it is transmitted from person to person. Ebola virus is transmitted from human to human by close contact with infected patients and virus-containing body fluids. It does not spread among h... Read More

Researchers Link Vaccine Effectiveness to Gut Bacteria

U.S. researchers have found a link between intestinal bacteria and the effectiveness of the flu vaccine. And the finding could have important implications for how vaccines are given.

Our intestines are full of bacteria; they help us digest our food. But scientists are starting to learn how im... Read More

The Mind-Bending Power of Bacteria

Our bodies are home to a vast ecosystem of microbes — the microbiome — that has a powerful effect on the brain. Three brain researchers discuss the emerging connection between the brain and the gut, and whether microbes may help treat brain disorders.

How U.S. Hospitals Keep Deadly Germs Like Ebola Virus Contained

On Friday afternoon, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention posted a guide explaining how hospitals should manage Ebola patients. Hospital workers entering a patient's room should wear:

- Gloves
- Gown (fluid resistant or impermeable)
- Eye protection (goggles or face shield... Read More

Cell Discovery Could Lead to Strep Throat Vaccine

A new study clarifies how Group A Streptococcus (strep) bacteria resist the human immune system.

The research could eventually lead to the development of a safe vaccine against strep throat, necrotising fasciitis (flesh-eating disease), and rheumatic heart disease.

Previous efforts to deve... Read More

HIV strain matters for treating new cases

The specific strain of HIV that a person first contracts can have a lasting impact on how the virus disrupts his or her immune system, say researchers.

“This may have important implications for cure strategies aimed at eliminating the viral reservoir, as individuals infected with low replicat... Read More

Visiting biosafety level-4 laboratories

Experiments with the most dangerous human viruses, such as Ebola virus and Lassa virus, are carried out in biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) laboratories. Since visiting the Northeast Infectious Diseases Laboratory BSL-4 and releasing the documentary video Threading the NEIDL, I was given the opportunit... Read More

Ebola’s evolutionary roots more ancient than previously thought, study finds

A new study is helping to rewrite Ebola’s family history.

The research shows that filoviruses — a family to which Ebola and its similarly lethal relative, Marburg, belong — are at least 16-23 million years old.

Filoviruses likely existed in the Miocene Epoch, and at that time, the evolutio... Read More

Virus-cutting enzyme helps bacteria remember a threat

Bacteria may not have brains, but they do have memories, at least when it comes to viruses that attack them. Many bacteria have a molecular immune system which allows these microbes to capture and retain pieces of viral DNA that they have encountered in the past, in order to recognize and destro...
