Langat virus can infect people following a tick bite, but there are no cases of natural disease recorded. In the 1970s ...

Anthrax inhibitor counteracts toxin, may lead to new therapeutics

... nanoscale assembly of molecules that successfully counteracts and inhibits anthrax toxin in animal and laboratory experiments. The novel approach used to neutralize anthrax toxin could be applied in designing potent therapeutics for a variety of pathogens and toxins, according to the researchers. Anthrax toxin...
