Two Innovative Methods Could Help to Predict Flu Outbreaks and Prevent the Spread of Antibiotic Resistance

Researchers have discovered new methods that could improve treatment for infectious diseases by enabling earlier detection of influenza outbreaks and curtailing inappropriate antibiotic usage. The findings were presented today at the 69th AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in San Diego.

Vaccines Protect Fetuses From Zika Infection, Mouse Study Shows

ZikaGreen-700x466.jpg

A new study in mice shows that females vaccinated before pregnancy and infected with Zika virus while pregnant bear pups who show no trace of the virus. The findings offer the first evidence that an effective vaccine can protect vulnerable fetuses from Zika infection and resulting injury.

50-Year-Old Flu Virus Model Gets Facelift

Figure5Top-Bottom-release_1.jpg

The scientific textbook depiction of the flu virus is about to get a facelift, due to a University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine team’s discovery that a model of the influenza genome architecture untouched since the 1970s isn’t so perfect after all. The finding could give scientists the opportunity to better predict pandemics and find new ways to disrupt the flu virus.

A drug that modulates the placenta’s normal barrier to infection protects the fetus from Zika infection, according to a study of pregnant mice from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. The drug is already used in pregnant women to treat malaria.

Scientists have solved the structure of a protein that helps a common respiratory virus evade the immune system. The team, led by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, have identified critical parts of the protein that could be targeted with drugs or vaccines, opening up the possibility of preventing or treating an infection that sickens thousands of babies and elderly people every year.
