Typhoid Conjugate Vaccine Introduced by the WHO

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the introduction of typhoid conjugate vaccine (TCV) for infants and children over six months of age in typhoid-endemic countries. This new policy will help ensure access to typhoid vaccination in communities most impacted by the disease, which is responsible for nearly 12 million infections and between 128,000 and 161,000 deaths a year.

Microscopic Exposes Lethal Blood Infection Therapies

Researchers could observe live and in real-time that the human body responds to often lethal fungal blood infections in the lung. In the study, the fungal infection Candida albicans was introduced to mice or human models of the lung vasculature, and as blood was pumped over that system, researchers recorded using highly sophisticated microscopes. The study was published in Cell Host & Microbe.
