Conclusion: A significant proportion of pregnant women have anti-HBs while the seroprevalence of HCV is low among pregnant women in the city of Mwanza. Routine screening of HBV among pregnant women coupled with appropriate management should be emphasized in developing countries. Further studies to determine seroprevalence of HCV are recommended across the country. PMID: 31316835 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract The chicken is an exemplar of efficient intensive animal agriculture and provides two valuable food products, chicken meat and eggs. Only aquaculture is better, by efficiency, but poultry is still top, by mass of animal protein produced as food in the global context. However this efficiency and intensive production comes with a number of challenges. Though the genetics of selective breeding have led to dramatic improvements in yield, efficiency and product quality, traits that relate to disease and welfare outcomes have not been so tractable. These two issues are major impacts to the industry in terms of ...

In this study, a neutralizing human antibody named 3L11 was rapidly isolated from the switched memory B cells of a patient infected with H7N9. The antibody 3L11 was encoded by the heavy-chain VH1-8 gene and the light-chain VL2-13 gene that had undergone somatic mutations, and conferred high affinity binding to H7N9 hemagglutinins (HAs). It promoted killing of infected cells by antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC). Epitope mapping by mass spectroscopy (MS) indicated that 3L11 bound to the peptide 149–175 of HAs that contained the 150-loop of the receptor-binding site (RBS). Additionally, the 3L11 escap...

(Natural News) Children today grow up in a much more toxic food and medicine “environment” than us adults did just 30 to 40 years ago. Back in the 1970s and 80s, children weren’t bombarded with dozens of vaccines during their first months of life, and conventional food wasn’t corrupt with bug-killing and weed-killing pesticides that...
