Ziyuglycoside II Inhibits Rotavirus Induced Diarrhea Possibly via TLR4/NF- κB Pathways.

This study aimed to investigate the roles of Ziyuglycoside II in rotavirus-induced diarrhea and the underlying molecular mechanism. We found that normal MA104 cells treated with RV became swollen and gather together. However, Ziyuglycoside II treatment inhibited cell growth in a dose- and time dependent manner and suppressed RV replication. Moreover, Ziyuglycoside II reversed RV-induced downregulation of anti-inflammatory cytokine interleukin (IL)-10 and upregulation of pro-inflammatory factors, such as interferon-γ (IFN-γ), IL-1β, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF-α). Moreover, Ziyuglycoside II administration and ribavirin blocked toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)/nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB) signaling pathway both in mRNA and protein level, which was paralleled with immunohistochemical assay. Additionally, Ziyuglycoside II administration improved diarrhea symptoms and decreased diarrhea scores. Ziyuglycoside II and ribavirin inhibited the apoptosis of small intestine epithelial cells induced by RV. Taken together, RV treatment induced diarrhea. Ziyuglycoside II administration inhibited TLR4/NF-κB pathway and inflammatory response and improved RV-induced diarrhea. The inhibitory effects of Ziyuglycoside II on RV-induced diarrhea predicted Ziyuglycoside II may be a promising drug for diarrhea. PMID: 32475915 [PubMed - in process]

In this report we describe the genotype constellation of a bovine rotavirus A (RVA) strain with an uncommon G8P[11] genotype combination. The RVA/Cow-wt/BRA/Y136/2017/G8P[11] strain was classified as G8-P[11]-I2-R5-C2-M2-A3-N2-T9-E2-H3. Phylogenetic analysis based on the VP7 gene showed that the Y136 strain and a human G8P[1] strain comprise a putative new (VII) lineage for the G8 genotype. In addition, two other genotypes, R5 (VP1) and T9 (NSP3), were identified in the constellation of Y136 that are rarely found in RVA strains of bovine origin. The immunological pressure caused by regular vaccination of cows might be resp...

US President Donald Trump has been pushing hard for an American vaccine against Covid-19. He's named the program Operation Warp Speed, which has many people worried that safety tests will be rushed. What are the prospects for an American vaccine against Covid-19? If the US is first, will it make its vaccines available to other countries? And what if it's not first? Three American vaccine experts talk with the BMJ about prospects for an American vaccine against the new coronavirus. Joining us are; Nicole Lurrie - senior lecturer at Harvard Medical School and a strategic adviser to the foundation working on global vacci...

AbstractSpecies A rotaviruses (RVAs) are a leading cause of diarrhea in children and in the young of a large variety of mammalian and avian host species. The purpose of this study was to identify RVA in nomadic goats and calves during severe diarrhea outbreaks in 2012 and 2014 in Bouaarfa, Morocco, and to characterize the complete genomic constellation of two bovine and caprine strains (S18 and S19) and their genetic relatedness with the human strain ma31 detected in 2011 in Morocco. Partial nucleotide sequencing of VP4 and VP7 genes for the twenty-two positive samples revealed three circulating genotypes: G6P[14], G10P[14...

AbstractEpileptic seizures might be provoked and/or exacerbated by fever or viral infection in children with epilepsy. However, this is not true for infantile spasms; in this study, we report three cases with infantile spasms became seizure free within 2 –5 days following rotavirus gastroenteritis without an exchange or addition of antiepileptic drugs, and hypsarrhythmia evolved to diffuse slow waves or localized spikes on electroencephalography. We propose that the probability regarding the mechanism of spontaneous mitigation is the suppression of immunopathological processes caused by infection, while the poss...

CONCLUSION: The majority of reported AEFIs were non-serious and mostly general systemic reactions. Sufficient knowledge on the AEFIs would secure public confidence on the safety of vaccines, thereby reducing public health burden from vaccine-preventable diseases.
