This study assessed whether the endemic status of this disease was stable or instable, which is important for disease control efforts. For this aim, 4115 sheep blood samples were collected from 81 cities in the seven geographical regions of Turkey. The diagnosis of Babesia ovis was made using microscopic and serological techniques. Thin blood smears were prepared from anticoagulated venous blood. Serum samples were screened for specific antibodies using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and indirect fluorescent antibody test (IFAT). Recombinant Babesia ovis secreted antigen 1 (rBoSA1) was used in the ELISA. The ...

ConclusionsThe thresholds at which vaccination becomes cost effective and cost saving can provide targets for Zika vaccine development and implementation.
The National Institutes of Health is working on a vaccine against the new virus that has infected hundreds and killed four in Asia.
In conclusion, it is necessary to pay attention to therapies acting on B lymphocytes as they could influence the antibody titer and efficacy of vaccination making the search for other markers of vaccine efficacy desirable such as cell-mediated immunity with proliferation and induction of memory T lymphocytes in response to viral glycoproteins.
An Ohio doctor who received a flood of threats over a pro-vaccine social media post is standing by her message. In a playful Tik Tok video, Dr. Nicole Baldwin showed the benefits of vaccines, and said they do not cause autism. But that prompted a barrage of hateful responses. Despite scientific evidence that there ’s no link between vaccines and autism, a recent poll found 46% of parents are still unsure. Dr. Jon LaPook joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss how doctors can counter misinformation about vaccines.
[MSF] As Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, starts to commemorate its 20th year and launches a new fundraising appeal, M édecins Sans Frontières (MSF) stressed that more must be done to make sure the 55 million children who do not have access to the pneumonia vaccine are protected against this worst global childhood killer, now that a new, more affordable vaccine is at long last available.
