Cells Sacrifice Themselves to Boost Immune Response to Viruses

Whether flu or coronavirus, it can take several days for the body to ramp up an effective response to a viral infection. New research describes how different cells in the immune system work together, ...

Insight on How to Build a Better Flu Vaccine

Repeated exposure to influenza viruses may undermine the effectiveness of the annual flu vaccine. A team of researchers has developed an approach to assess whether a vaccine activates the kind of ...

Bird Skull Evolution Slowed After the Extinction of the Dinosaurs

From emus to woodpeckers, modern birds show remarkable diversity in skull shape and size, often hypothesized to be the result of a sudden hastening of evolution following the mass extinction that ...

Flu in Early Life Determines Our Susceptibility to Future Infections

Early infections of influenza A can help predict how the virus will affect people across different ages in the future and could impact the effectiveness of flu vaccines, says a new ...

Universal Flu Vaccine May Be More Challenging Than Expected

Some common strains of influenza have the potential to mutate to evade broad-acting antibodies that could be elicited by a universal flu vaccine, according to a new study. The findings highlight the ...

New Technology Can Detect Anti-Virus Antibody in 20 Minutes

Researchers have succeeded in detecting anti-avian influenza virus antibody in blood serum within 20 minutes, using a portable analyzer they have developed to conduct rapid on-site bio tests. If a ...

Antiviral Drug Baloxavir Reduces Transmission of Flu Virus Among Ferrets

Baloxavir treatment reduced transmission of the flu virus from infected ferrets to healthy ferrets, suggesting that the antiviral drug could contribute to the early control of influenza outbreaks by ...

Researchers Assess Bird Flu Virus Subtypes in China

The avian influenza virus subtype H16N3 is currently detectable in many countries. To examine the potential threat to humans of H16N3, researchers recently performed an extensive avian influenza ...

Phage Capsid Against Influenza: Perfectly Fitting Inhibitor Prevents Viral Infection

Hope of new therapeutic options for suppressing seasonal influenza and avian flu: On the basis of an empty -- and therefore non-infectious -- shell of a phage virus, researchers have developed a ...

Lessons from the Spanish Flu: Early Restrictions Lowered Disease, Mortality Rates

A review of published data and analysis on the Spanish flu, found that cities that adopted early and broad isolation and prevention measures had disease and mortality rates that were 30% to 50% lower ...

New Compounds Thwart Multiple Viruses, Including Coronavirus

According to a Feb. 13 report from the World Health Organization, the Wuhan coronavirus has stricken more than 46,000 people and has caused over 1,300 deaths since the first cases in Wuhan, China, in ...

Complexity Scientists Present 'Meme' Model for Multiple Diseases

Interacting contagious diseases like influenza and pneumonia -- and perhaps coronavirus too -- follow the same complex spreading patterns as social trends, like the adoption of new slang or ...

New Pathogenic Mechanism for Influenza NS1 Protein Found

Researchers report the biological effects of influenza protein NS1 binding to RIG-I -- the binding directly quiets the alarm that activates the cellular innate immunity defense against the infection. ...

First Childhood Flu Helps Explain Why Virus Hits Some People Harder Than Others

Why are some people better able to fight off the flu than others? Part of the answer, according to a new study, is related to the first flu strain we encounter in ...

Chemists Unveil the Structure of an Influenza B Protein

Chemists have discovered the structure of an influenza B protein called BM2, a finding that could help researchers design drugs that block the protein and help prevent the virus from ...

Universal Flu Vaccine Protects Against 6 Influenza Viruses in Mice

A novel nanoparticle vaccine that combines two major influenza proteins is effective in providing broad, long-lasting protection against influenza virus in mice, showing promise as a universal flu ...

Can the Flu Shot Help Fight Cancer?

Physicians and scientists have found that injecting tumors with influenza vaccines, including some FDA-approved seasonal flu shots, turns cold tumors to hot, a discovery that could lead to an ...

What Blocks Bird Flu in Human Cells?

Normally, bird flu viruses do not spread easily from person to person. But if this does happen, it could trigger a pandemic. Researchers have now explained what makes the leap from animals to humans ...

Building a Better Flu Shot

Getting the flu shot can reduce the chances of infection. But, at best, the vaccine is only effective 40% to 60% of the time, according to the CDC. Now researchers have data that show how cellular ...

Ketogenic Diet Helps Tame Flu Virus

A high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet like the Keto regimen has its fans, but influenza apparently isn't one of them. Mice fed a ketogenic diet were better able to combat the flu virus than mice fed ...

By Targeting Flu-Enabling Protein, Antibody May Protect Against Wide-Ranging Strains

A team of researchers has found an antibody that protects mice against a wide range of potentially lethal influenza viruses, advancing efforts to design of a universal vaccine that could either treat ...

Biomedical Sciences Researchers Demonstrate That New Antiviral Drug Effectively Treats Influenza

A new antiviral drug that induces mutations in the genetic material of influenza virus is highly effective in treating influenza infection in animals and human airway tissue and could be a ...
