More people killed by Netflix show than measles: Will CDC declare public health crisis caused by streaming entertainment?

(Natural News) What’s more dangerous: Contracting measles without having been vaccinated, or watching television shows from the comfort of your own home? Watching television shows, it turns out – and by a long shot. Experts from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), along with Nationwide Children’s Hospital, recently published a groundbreaking study showing that...

Research in the last decade has uncovered many new paramyxoviruses, airborne agents that cause epidemic diseases in animals including humans. Most paramyxoviruses enter epithelial cells of the airway using sialic acid as a receptor and cause only mild disease. However, others cross the epithelial barrier and cause more severe disease. For some of these viruses, the host receptors have been identified, and the mechanisms of cell entry have been elucidated. The tetrameric attachment proteins of paramyxoviruses have vastly different binding affinities for their cognate receptors, which they contact through different binding s...

Jäger Ungerechts Engeland Priming and activation of CD8+ T cell responses is crucial to achieve anti-viral and anti-tumor immunity. Live attenuated measles vaccine strains have been used successfully for immunization for decades and are currently investigated in trials of oncolytic virotherapy. The available reverse genetics systems allow for insertion of additional genes, including heterologous antigens. Here, we designed recombinant measles vaccine vectors for priming and activation of antigen-specific CD8+ T cells. For proof-of-concept, we used cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) lines specific for the melano...
