C. auris Transmission with the Healthcare Environment

The researches find that the C. auris is an emerging fungal pathogen that can cause large outbreaks in healthcare facilities. Understanding how C. auris spreads in healthcare facilities is essential for infection control. Because C. auris can be present on the skin without causing symptoms; it has been hypothesize that the spread of C. auris occurs as patients…

Prolonged Transmission Of A Resistant Bacterial Strain

Prolonged Transmission Of A Resistant Bacterial Strain

A strain is a low level taxonomic rank using at the intraspecific level; Strains are often seeing as inherently artificial concepts; characterizing by a specific intent for genetic isolation. This is most easily observing in microbiology where strains are deriving from a single cell colony; and are typically quarantining by the physical constraints of a…

Human Monoclonal Antibody Against Dengue Virus

Human Monoclonal Antibody Against Dengue Virus

Dengue virus (DENV) causes the most prevalent mosquito borne viral disease. Over 2.5 billion people are at risk for infection in over 100 countries; 50–100 million are infected with symptoms; and up to 50,000 die from dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) and dengue shock syndrome (DSS) each year. But anti-DENV vaccine; and biological drugs development has…

Influenza Virus Activity In The United States

Influenza Virus Activity In The United States

Testing of seasonal influenza A virus; influenza A(H3N2), and influenza B viruses for resistance to the neuraminidase inhibitors oseltamivir, zanamivir, and peramivir is performing at CDC using next generation sequencing analysis; a functional assay or both. Neuraminidase sequences of viruses are examined for the presence of amino acid substitutions previously associated with reduced or highly…

Antibiotic Therapy On Gut Bacterial Communities

Antibiotic Therapy On Gut Bacterial Communities

The green turtles are endangering marine herbivorous hindgut fermenters; that contribute to a variety of marine ecosystems. Debilitating turtles are often rehabilitating in turtle hospitals. Since accurate diagnosis of disease is difficult; broad spectrum antibiotics are routinely using as a general antibiotic treatment; potentially causing collateral damage to the gut microbiome of the patient. Green…

Systemic Immune Activation In Infected Malaria Patients

Systemic Immune Activation In Infected Malaria Patients

Malaria still rising major concerns in public health worldwide; The burden causing by the disease is noticeable; as it leading to more than 200 million cases and billions of dollars investing each year; Moreover, P. vivax, which is the most widespread of the five main species of Plasmodium; have been increasingly associating with severe disease presentations and mortality.…

Antibiotic Resistance Complicates The Treatment Of Many Infections

Antibiotic Resistance Complicates The Treatment Of Many Infections

A growing challenge in the treatment of staph infections is that the bacteria can become resistant to antibiotics, including daptomycin. Antibiotic resistance not only complicates the treatment of many infections, it also raises the cost of treating those infections. But a recent United Nations report claiming that drug resistant diseases could kill 10 million people…

Host Responses To Hepatitis B And Delta Viral Infections

Host Responses To Hepatitis B And Delta Viral Infections

Hepatitis B virus remains a major global health problem with 257 million chronically infected individuals worldwide; of whom approximately 20 million are co‐infected with hepatitis delta viral; a new, scalable cell culture system; that allows for detailing investigation of how host cells respond to infection with hepatitis B and delta virus. Hepatitis B virus causes…

DNA packaging mechanism of The Virus HSV1

DNA Packaging Mechanism Of The Virus HSV1

Herpesviruse are enveloping viruses that are prevalent in the human population and are responsible for diverse pathologies; including cold sores; birth defects and cancers; research scientists revealing DNA packaging mechanism of HSV 1, the virus that causes cold sores. But the intricate machinery responsible for compressing DNA into the small interior shell, or capsid; of…

Persuading Its Citizens to Get Vaccinated

The researches find that the The parents, also vaccinated; tested positive for the virus too. They were believed to have brought it from France. he family were swiftly quarantined; and the Costa Rican authorities contacted people at risk. A few weeks later, two American children again; unvaccinated also developed measles in the country. Again, the authorities had…

Human Immune System To Treat Certain Types Of Cancer

Human Immune System To Treat Certain Types Of Cancer

Viruses such as measles and mumps not to mention the more serious HIV and Ebola; Human Cytomegalovirus can cause all kinds of health problems, research into the virus is also helping us harness the power of the human immune system to treat certain types of cancer. As Human Cytomegalovirus is transmitting through bodily fluids such as urine, blood, saliva and…

Cellular Protein That Interacts With Viruses

Cellular Protein That Interacts With Viruses

As a cellular protein that interacts with invading viruses appears to help enable the infection process of the Zika virus, according to an international team of researchers who suggest this protein could be a key target in developing new therapies to prevent or treat Zika virus infection. The study first isolating Zika; a member of the…
