New Strain of HIV Discovered

The new strain is a part of the same family of virus subtypes that have fueled the global HIV pandemic, according to Abbott Laboratories, which conducted the research with the University of Missouri.

Publication date: Available online 4 November 2019Source: Journal of Theoretical BiologyAuthor(s): Bo Xu, Jun Cai, Daihai He, Gerardo Chowell, Bing XuAbstractMultiple-wave outbreaks have been documented for influenza pandemics particularly in the temperate zone, and occasionally for seasonal influenza epidemics in the tropical zone. The mechanisms shaping multiple-wave influenza outbreaks are diverse but are yet to be summarized in a systematic fashion. For this purpose, we described 12 distinct mechanistic models, among which five models were proposed for the first time, that support two waves of infection in a single inf...

ConclusionsTo our knowledge, this is the first draft genome of an E. coli ST131-O25:H4-H30 strain recovered from infant diarrheal stool sample in Mexico. The genome sequence of E. coli M51-3 presented here will be helpful to understand the genomic diversity of this highly virulent and MDR successfully pandemic bacterial pathogen.

(Natural News) Researchers from India and the U.S. conducted a pilot study to determine if the polyphenolic extract from unopened clove buds can influence glucose metabolism. The results of their study were published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Type 2 diabetes is considered a global pandemic and is a huge contributor to the...

Abstract Human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) is the causative agent responsible for the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) pandemic. More than 60 million infections and 25 million deaths have occurred since AIDS was first identified in the early 1980s. Advances in available therapeutics, in particular combination antiretroviral therapy, have significantly improved the treatment of HIV infection and have facilitated the shift from high mortality and morbidity to that of a manageable chronic disease. Unfortunately, none of the currently available drugs are curative of HIV. To deal with the rapid emerg...

This study reports virological and epidemiological data accumulated through passive surveillance conducted during 1,825 herd visits from 2011 to 2018. Among them, 887 (48.6%) tested swIAV-positive. The proportion of positive cases remained stable year-on-year and year-round. The European avian-like swine H1N1 (H1avN1) virus was the most frequently identified (69.6%), and was widespread across the country. The European human-like reassortant swine H1N2 (H1huN2) virus accounted for 22.1% and was only identified in the north-western quarter and recently in the far north. The 2009 pandemic H1N1 (H1N1pdm) virus (3.6%) was detec...

yn Kobasa Influenza A viruses (IAVs) are important animal and human emerging and re-emerging pathogens that are responsible for yearly seasonal epidemics and sporadic pandemics. IAVs cause a wide range of clinical illnesses, from relatively mild infections by seasonal strains, to acute respiratory distress during infections with highly pathogenic avian IAVs (HPAI). For this study, we infected A549 human lung cells with lab prototype A/PR/8/34 (H1N1) (PR8), a seasonal H1N1 (RV733), the 2009 pandemic H1N1 (pdm09), or with two avian strains, an H5N1 HPAI strain or an H7N9 strain that has low pathogenicity in birds but hig...
