Age is not just a number-synopsis of the 5th New Zealand Influenza Symposium 2019. N Z Med J. 2019 Dec 13;132(1507):77-82 Authors: Nowlan M, Murfitt D, Turner N Abstract Presented is a synopsis of the 5th New Zealand Influenza Symposium, which focused on both uptake of the influenza vaccine and the long-term consequences of influenza. Particularly highlighted were the advantages of influenza vaccination for older adults in reducing declines in cognitive and physical health. Research findings from influenza surveillance, future of influenza vaccines and the influenza promotional campaign presented at the symposium are summarised. PMID: 31830020 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Pourcher V Abstract Patients with multiple sclerosis taking immunosuppressive therapy may be at risk of reactivating latent pathogens, community-acquired infections, worsening asymptomatic chronic infections, and contracting de novo infections. This risk was evaluated mainly in short-term clinical trials and few studies have investigated this risk in real-life settings. In clinical practice, this infectious risk should be evaluated when a multiple sclerosis diagnosis is made in order to propose specific follow-up or immunization as soon as possible and thus avoid contraindications or risk of lowered vaccin...

There is a strong need for a new broad-spectrum antiinfluenza therapeutic, as vaccination and existing treatments are only moderately effective. We previously engineered a lectin, H84T banana lectin (H84T), to retain broad-spectrum activity against multiple influenza strains, including pandemic and avian, while largely eliminating the potentially harmful mitogenicity of the...

A rapidly evolving health story broke in late December when a novel illness originating in Wuhan, China made the news. Reports of the number of infected people swiftly rose, and isolated cases of this new coronavirus — dubbed 2019-nCoV by scientists — have appeared in several countries due to international travel. At this writing, almost 1,300 confirmed cases and over 40 deaths have occurred in China, according to an article in the New York Times. Fortunately, public health officials in many countries, including the US, have put measures in place to help prevent further spread of the virus. These measures inclu...

Vaccines against tetanus, pertussis and influenza are recommended for use in pregnancy and new vaccines with specific indications for pregnancy are in the clinical trials pipeline. However our understanding of the immune response to vaccination in pregnancy is incomplete. We compared the effect of pregnancy on early (24 hours) transcriptional responses to vaccination. Pregnant mice and women were immunised with Boostrix-IPV...
