What is California Senate Bill 276 and why did Jessica Biel and Robert Kennedy, Jr. appear at the California State House this week together?
Abstract Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) a re-emerging mosquito-borne alpha virus causes significant distress which is further accentuated in the lack of specific therapeutics or a preventive vaccine, mandating accelerated research for anti-CHIKV therapeutics. In recent years, drug repositioning has gained recognition for the curative interventions for its cost and time efficacy. CHIKV envelope proteins are considered to be the promising targets for drug discovery because of their essential role in viral attachment and entry in the host cells. In the current study, we propose structure-based virtual screening of drug mo...
DISCUSSION: Contrary to our hypothesis, our evidence suggests Twitter content differs significantly from English mass media content. Evidence from our study helps inform media monitoring and communications surveillance during global public health crises, such as infectious disease outbreaks, as well as reactions to health promotion campaigns.

CONCLUSIONS Pneumococcal meningitis is probably underdiagnosed and underreported in S ão Paulo. Differentiated rates of pneumococcal meningitis diagnosis and reporting in each microregion, according to the São Paulo Index of Social Responsibility, might explain our results.
Publication date: Available online 17 July 2019Source: Microbiological ResearchAuthor(s): Yiqin Deng, Youlu Su, Songlin Liu, Lei Bei, Zhixun Guo, Huo Li, Chang Chen, Juan FengAbstractVibrio alginolyticus is an opportunistic pathogen that is a threat to the aquaculture industry. Evidence has revealed critical roles for small RNAs (sRNAs) in bacterial physiology and pathology by modulating gene expression post transcription. However, little information about sRNA-mediated regulation in V. alginolyticus is available. We experimentally verified the existence and characterized the function of sRNA srvg17985 in V. alginolyticus ...
ConclusionsOur prospective study performed in a real-world setting showed a high immunogenicity and safety of HBV-AS04 vaccine in patients with CKD not yet on maintenance dialysis. Studies provided with longer follow-ups are under way to assess the durability of seroprotection in responders.
Half of Americans reported a hesitation or outright refusal to take an anti-Ebola vaccine, which researchers say is based on the same reasoning fueling anti-vaccine fears around the world.
Biologics are cutting-edge therapies that treat or cure some of the most challenging and costly diseases. These medicines are created from living organisms through highly complex manufacturing processes and include gene and cell therapies, therapeutic proteins, monoclonal antibodies and vaccines. In 2010, theBiologics Price Competition and Innovation Act (BPCIA) created an abbreviated regulatory approval pathway for biosimilars – a product that is “similar” to a biologic medicine that was already licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Until Congress passed the BPCIA, there was no pathway...

Conclusions: The findings indicate that hospitalizations are associated with a significant increase in mortality in patients recently diagnosed with HF. It is important to reinforce the need for the prevention of acute decompensated HF and for strategies to improve post-discharge outcomes. PMID: 31314009 [PubMed - in process]
