Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Research in Veterinary ScienceAuthor(s): Ying-Feng Sun, Xuan Jiang, Ao Zhang, Ji-Fei Ma, Xiao-Xue Yu, Liu-An Li, Hai YuAbstractModified-live virus (MLV) vaccines derived from highly pathogenic porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (HP-PRRSV) were wildly used in China, which resulted in the emergence of MLV-like strains in pigs. Previous studies demonstrated that secondary bacterial infection could enhance HP-PRRSV infection-mediated inflammatory responses, but it is unknown whether early bacterial infection could enhance the HP-PRRSV MLV-like infectio...

This study suggests that environment might be one of the main sources for Campylobacter transmission, as water supply seemed to be a clear cause of the contamination in a specific farm. However, in other farms other environmental factors contributed to the contamination, confirming the multifactorial origin of Campylobacter colonization in broilers. Therefore, biosecurity measures in farms are crucial to reduce Campylobacter contamination, which may have important implications for human and animal health.

In this study, we describe the titration tools elaborated to assess the titre of rVSV-ZEBOV productions.- A streamlined Median Tissue Culture Infectious Dose (TCID50) assay to determine the infectious titer of this vaccine was established.- A digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR) assay to assess the total number of viral particles present in cell-free culture supernatants of rVSV productions was developed.- These assays are used to titre rVSV-ZEBOV samples and characterize the ratio of total particles to infectious units for monitoring process robustness and product quality attributes and can be used to titre samples ge...

Researchers at Duke University say that if the country plans to properly address the growing threat of antibiotic resistance it will require a fundamental change in reimbursements for drugmakers. According to a new report in Health Affairs by researchers at the university's Margolis Center for Health Policy, the implementation of a "subscription model" would increase the development and ability of antibiotics necessary to combat the rising antimicrobial resistance (AMR) seen around the glo be. In…

Authors: Wieland U, Oellig F, Kreuter A Abstract Anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN) and 89-100% of anal cancers are caused by persistent infections with high-risk (HR) human papillomaviruses (HPV). In HIV-positive patients, anal HPV infection and AIN are very common and these patients have a greatly increased risk of developing anal cancer. However, a continuous increase in the incidence of anal cancer has also been observed in the general population in recent decades. AIN can clinically present in diverse manners. In HIV-positive patients AIN can be hidden in condylomas. Furthermore, 3-14% of high-grad...
