Researchers discover swine flu vaccine causes narcolepsy

A team of Swedish clinicians have clinically linked a 2009 swine flu vaccine to increased risk of narcolepsy in young adults, and a group of Danish researchers now understand how and why. Pandemrix, an influenza vaccine unleashed in 2009, was widely administered to...

In this study, aqueous suspensions of various active ingredients (A.I.s) were utilized to generate Engineered Water Nanostructures (EWNS) nano-sanitizers, containing the A.I. utilized to produced them (termed iEWNS). These iEWNS had nanoscale size, were loaded with ROS and contained the A.I. utilized to produce them. They were challenged with Influenza H1N1/PR/8 and Acinetobacter baumannii on surfaces and in air. The results indicate that a nanogram dose of A.I. is effective in producing significant inactivation in Influenza H1N1/PR/8 and Acinetobacter baumannii.

Abstract Sleep and arousal from sleep are associated with profound changes in cardiovascular and respiratory functions. Fluctuations of arterial blood pressure (ABP), heart rate (HR), and respiration occur both during non-rapid eye movement (NREM) and REM sleep and during transitions between sleep and behavioral arousal. These changes reflect complex, state-dependent interactions among several neuronal groups in the hypothalamus and brainstem. These neurons utilize the excitatory amino-acid L-glutamate or the inhibitory amino acid γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and are modulated in a state-dependent manner by in...

In this study, we developed a small interfering RNA generation system that expressed two different short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) targeting the M gene of PEDV and SADS-CoV and the N gene of PDCoV, respectively. Our results demonstrated that simultaneous expression of these specific shRNA molecules inhibited expression of PEDV M gene, SADS-CoV M gene, and PDCoV N gene RNA by 99.7%, 99.4%, and 98.8%, respectively, in infected cell cultures. In addition, shRNA molecules significantly restricted the expression of M and N protein, and impaired the replication of PEDV, SADS-CoV, and PDCoV simultaneously. Taken together, this shRNAs...

Publication date: April 2019Source: Current Opinion in Virology, Volume 35Author(s): Rosemary Morgan, Sabra L KleinMales/men and females/women differ in the outcome of influenza A virus (IAV) infections, vaccination, and antiviral treatments. Both sex (i.e. biological factors) and gender (i.e. sociocultural factors) can impact exposure and severity of IAV infections as well as responses and outcomes of treatments for IAV. Greater consideration of the combined effects of sex and gender in epidemiological, clinical, and animal studies of influenza pathogenesis is needed.Graphical abstract

Publication date: Available online 20 March 2019Source: Preventive Veterinary MedicineAuthor(s): Bin Cui, Zong Ping Liu, Jun Ke, Yi TianAbstractThe implementation of biosecurity measures among farmers is the first line of defense against highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) on poultry farms. Yet much less is known about the association between HPAI outbreak information sources, farmers’ risk perception and their adoption of biosecurity behaviors (BBs). To bridge this gap, a survey (n = 426) was conducted to measure the relationship between these factors among poultry farmers in the Chinese provinces...

Publication date: Available online 20 March 2019Source: Molecular Phylogenetics and EvolutionAuthor(s): Elma H. Akand, Kevin.M. DownardAbstractA mass based phylonumerics approach is shown to be able to investigate the origins of the emergence of antiviral resistance mutations in influenza neuraminidase through a global view of mutational trends. Frequent ancestral and descendant mutations that precede and follow the manifestation of antiviral resistance mutations are identified in N2 neuraminidase. The majority occur in the head region around the active site and drive hydrophilicity changes, primarily through the incorpora...
