Antibiotic might fight HIV-induced neurological problems

...treated monkeys had evidence of moderate or severe encephalitis and much more physical evidence of damage to brain cells, the researchers report. "The infection in the animal model is predictable and aggressive, so we can get meaningful data by studying fewer animals," says Zink, who was on the team that develop...

A new study examines how shared pathogens affect host populations

... pathogens like malaria, Lyme disease or West Nile encephalitis that infect multiple hosts are commonly transmitted by vectors, and their transmission rate is often thought to depend on the proportion of hosts or vectors infected (i.e. frequency dependence). A study, to appear in the July 2005 issue of The Americ...

Genetic mutation linked to West Nile virus infection

...to-borne virus that caused a1999 outbreak of fatal encephalitis in the US -- was uniformly fatal in mice that lack CCR5. This finding prompted Murphy and his colleagues to look for the CCR5delta32 mutation in patients in the US who were diagnosed with WNV infections. They now report that individuals with two co...
