Mutational Tug of War Over HIV's Disease-Inducing Potential

A study from Emory AIDS researchers shows how the expected disease severity when someone is newly infected by HIV reflects a balance between the virus' invisibility to the host's immune system and its ability to reproduce.

Flu Nasal Spray Provides Similar Protection Against Influenza as Flu Shot: Study

For the study, The research team conducted a three-year trial in a Hutterite colony, where people live communally and are relatively isolated from cities and towns, to determine whether vaccinating children and adolescents with the flu nasal spray provided better direct and community protection than the standard flu shot.

Distraction Techniques Can Soothe Shot Anxiety During This Year’s Flu Season

A typical visit to the pediatrician when it is time for a child to get a shot can include tears, tantrums and might not seem worth the trouble. But with the FluMist not being offered by many physicians this year due to ineffectiveness, doctors at Nationwide Children’s Hospital recommend your child still get the flu shot. To calm shot-related anxiety, parents can ask their pediatrician about distraction techniques to help comfort their child when receiving a shot.

Tips on Avoiding Illness at Major Events (Like the Olympics) and Projections for a Zika Vaccine

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Zika isn’t the only health concern now that the games have begun in Rio. Massive crowds from around the globe will be at the Olympics, and that means a world-class array of germs will mix with them. Mayo Clinic infectious diseases expert Gregory Poland, M.D., offers several tips for avoiding illness when you are around lots of people, whether at the Olympics, a professional sports event, convention, concert or other major event.

New Anti-HIV Medication Provides Protection for Women and Infants

MartinaKovaRova.jpg

Each year, 1.5 million women living with HIV become pregnant. Without effective treatment, up to 45 percent of HIV-infected mothers will transmit the virus to their child. In an effort to prevent HIV transmission to women and their children, researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill demonstrated the effectiveness of a new anti-HIV medication, EFdA, in pre-clinical animal models.
