Fragment of yellow fever virus may hold key to safer vaccine

...interact with this part of the protein, known as a neutralizing epitope, to fight off infection. To protect people from the disease, yellow fever vaccines must contain this essential fragment of instruction to the immune system, said ter Meulen, senior author of a study published in the July 5, 2005, issue of the...

Bleach found to neutralize mold allergens

...allergic patients." The need for denaturing or neutralizing mold allergens is a critical step in mold treatment that has not been fully understood. Currently, most recommendations for mold remediation call for removal since dead mold retains its ability to trigger allergic reactions, according to Dr. Martyny....

New study shows SARS can infect brain tissue

UCSD study finds anthrax toxins also harmful to fruit flies

...vel and may lead to new therapeutic strategies for neutralizing their effects in humans. Annabel Guichard, a biologist at UCSD and lead author of the study, tracked the ways that two active anthrax toxins, known as lethal factor, or LF, and edema factor, EF, cause cellular damage and death in the fruit fly Droso...

H5N1 avian flu virus vaccine induces immune responses in healthy adults

...the 90-mcg, high-dose group, 54 percent achieved a neutralizing antibody response to the vaccine at serum dilutions of 1:40 or greater, whereas only 22 percent of the 100 people evaluated who received the 15-mcg dose developed a similar response to the vaccine. Generally, all dosages of the vaccine appeared to b...

Anthrax inhibitor counteracts toxin, may lead to new therapeutics

...the formation of fully assembled anthrax toxin and neutralizing its activity. The inhibitor protected rats from anthrax toxin in the study. "Our eventual goal is to use the inhibitor as a human therapeutic for anthrax exposure, one that can stop the toxin from functioning inside the body," says Ravi Kane, the M...

Hantavirus found in African wood mouse

... humans, because we identified hantavirus-specific neutralizing antibodies in [the blood] of humans living in the area where the virus was detected. We do not know if these people suffered from an HFRS-like illness, but studies to determine this are in progress." Ter Meulen said, however, that there's little cau...

The parasite is removed from the blood and all effects associated with the disease disappear. There is every indication that this...

UGA study explains peaks and troughs of dengue epidemics

... antibody levels drop to levels that are no longer neutralizing but instead are exploited by the dengue virus to enhance replication and cause more severe illness. "You can't deny the empirical fact that people who get severe dengue may well have had cases before," Rohani said. "But our work suggests it's not t...

They do this by specifically binding to and neutralizing another form of RNA called messenger RNA, responsible for conveying the information from genes to the cellular machinery that uses that information to create proteins, the building blocks of the body. Several hundred species of microRNAs have been id...

Can engineered immune cells stop AIDS?

New details on how the immune system recognizes influenza
