Researchers Discover How Body Temperature Wrecks Potential Dengue, Zika Vaccine

University of North Carolina Health Care System

UNC School of Medicine researchers have delineated the details of one major barrier to a promising vaccine. It’s something we all have – a natural body temperature of about 98.6 degrees.

Blood Type Affects Severity of Diarrhea Caused by E. coli

Washington University in St. Louis

A new study shows that a kind of E. coli most associated with “travelers’ diarrhea” and children in underdeveloped areas of the world causes more severe disease in people with blood type A. The bacteria release a protein that latches onto intestinal cells in people with blood type A, but not blood type O or B. A vaccine targeting that protein could potentially protect people with type A blood against the deadliest effects of E. coli infection.

Vaccine-Induced Antibodies Against One Hemorrhagic Fever Virus Found to Disarm Related Virus for Which There Is No Vaccine

Harvard Medical School

Research conducted in vitro shows two human antibodies made in response to vaccination against one hemorrhagic fever virus can disarm a related virus, for which there is currently no vaccine. The proof-of-principle finding identifies a common molecular chink in the two viruses’ armor that renders both vulnerable to the same antibodies. The results set the stage for a single vaccine and other antibody-based treatments that work against multiple viral “cousins” despite key differences in their genetic makeup. Such therapies can alleviate challenges posed by current lack of vaccines and prevent outbreaks of viral hemorrhagic fevers.

UCLA-Led Research Finds Vaccines Against Anthrax, Plague and Tularemia Are Effective in Mice

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

Anthrax, plague and tularemia are three potent agents terrorists would be likely to use in an attack, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each is highly and quickly lethal to humans. But there are no licensed vaccines for tularemia and plague, and although there is an anthrax vaccine, it requires a burdensome immunization schedule and has severe side effects.

Supercomputer Simulations Reveal New “Achilles heel” in Dengue Virus

University of California San Diego

By stretching the amount of time proteins can be simulated in their natural state of wiggling and gyrating, a team of researchers at Colorado State University has identified a critical protein structure that could serve as a molecular Achilles heel able to inhibit the replication of dengue virus and potentially other flaviviruses such as West Nile and Zika virus.
