ConclusionThe present study reports a variant subgroup GII-a PEDV HM2017 strain in China and characterize its pathogenicity. PEDV strain HM2017 of subgroup GII-a presents a promising vaccine candidate for the control of PED outbreaks in China.
In this study H. pylori CagL gene was cloned in pAMJ2008 vector and transferred to Lactococcus lactis MG1363 as the host for CagL antigen production. This recombinant bacterium was orally subjected to mice, and the immune response to CagL was evaluated by ELISA. Intracellular expression of CagL protein was confirmed by Western blot analysis. Mucosal immunization of mice with the recombinant L. lactis significantly stimulated CagL-Specific antibodies: IgA, IgG, cytokine IL-17 and IN-γ. Moreover, the specific anti-CagL IgA response was detected in the feces of immunized mice. These results indicate that CagL of H. pylo...
ConclusionsThis study provides initial perspectives on measles preparedness among Idaho CAHs, despite limited generalizability. Future studies should explore whether self-reported preparedness measures reflect the ability of the CAHs to control measles spread when cases present for care.
A financially troubled Seattle research institute cut back programs, leaving researchers to find new homes for work on infectious diseases like tuberculosis and leprosy.
(CNN/CBS) — At least 1,300 people have died from the flu so far this season, according to a preliminary estimate released Friday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There have been at least 2.6 million flu illnesses and 23,000 flu-related hospitalizations, according to the analysis. So far this season, the CDC has received reports of 10 children who have died from the flu, four more than the week before. Experts have warned that flu is hitting the United States early this year, and there are concerns that this early season could mean a particularly severe season overall. Flu spread significantly in ...

Govea Alonso, Sergio Rosales-MendozaAbstractSynucleinopathies are conditions that remain with no available effective treatments thus far. Immunotherapy is a possible path to fight against such pathologies by inducing antibodies against alpha-synuclein (α-Syn), which could induce the clearance of its pathologic form. Looking to develop a new low-cost, effective vaccine against synucleinopathies; we have designed a chimeric plant-made antigen comprising the subunit B of the enterotoxin fro...
