A New Class of Drug to Treat Herpes Simplex Virus Infection

University of Illinois at Chicago

For patients with the herpes simplex-1 virus (HSV-1), there are just a handful of drugs available to treat the painful condition that can affect the eyes, mouth and genitals.If patients develop resistance to these drugs, there are even fewer choices left to treat the infection, which lasts for life.Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have now identified a small drug molecule that can clear the HSV-1 infection in the cells of the cornea — the clear outer layer of the eyeball — and works completely differently than the currently-available drugs, making it a promising potential option for patients who have developed resistance.

Every Rose Has Its Thorn — and Its Tick

Washington University in St. Louis

When it comes to avoiding Lyme disease, know your forest. That's the cautionary tale from a new study which found that ticks in urban parks in Delaware dominated by an invasive rose bush were nearly twice as likely to be infected with Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, as compared to ticks from uninvaded forest fragments.

Scientists Identify Immune Cascade that Fuels Complications, Tissue Damage in Chlamydia Infections

Harvard Medical School

Research in mice pinpoints immune mechanism behind tissue damage and complications of chlamydia infection, the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States. Separate immune mechanisms drive bacterial clearance versus immune-mediated tissue damage and subsequent disease. Therapies are needed to avert irreversible reproductive organ damage that can arise as a result of silent infections that go untreated.
