The study released this week online in the Journal of Virology describes how a single virus protein--NS5--from the tick-borne Langat flavivirus counteracts the natural ability of interferon to combat the vi...

Why do aneurysms form? New studies suggest leading role for white blood cells

...st and who will die within minutes or hours if the bleeding isn't stopped. AAAs can go undetected for years; experts sometimes refer to them as a "ticking time bomb" inside a patient's abdomen. In fact, an estimated 10 percent of all men over the age of 70 may have intact aortic aneurysms, which cause few sy...

The very defensive caterpillar

Caterpillars are bleeding defensive! Insects are known to lack an antibody-mediated immune response, and research in caterpillars has recently shown that, instead, they produce protective proteins in response to bacterial infection. The pattern recognition receptors (PRR) and...

Promising therapies for haemophilia & heart disease

...more effective means of achieving clotting to stop bleeding incidents in haemophiliacs. Because they carry it naturally in their bodies, patients are highly unlikely to make antibodies against P-selectin. P-selectin also has a longer half-life than clotting factors so treatment is likely to be less frequent. ...

Genetic variation alters response to common anti-clotting drug

...xample, too high of a dose can result in excessive bleeding while too little of a dose could allow dangerous blood clots to form. Doctors primarily use information about a patient's sex, age, weight, and medical history to set the initial warfarin dose. However, it can take several months of clinic visits an...
