Worm infestation in intestine has a remote effect on viral defenses
(University of Bonn) Infection with parasitic intestinal worms (helminths) can apparently cause sexually transmitted viral in-fections to be much more severe elsewhere in the body. This is shown by a study led by the Universities of Cape Town and Bonn. According to the study, helminth-infected mice developed significantly more severe symptoms after infection with a genital herpes viruses (Herpes Simplex Virus). The researchers suspect that these results can also be transferred to humans. The results have now appeared in the journal Cell Host& Microbe. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

First patient-derived organoid model for cervical cancer
(Hubrecht Institute) Researchers from the group of Hans Clevers developed the first patient-derived organoid model for cervical cancer. They also modelled the healthy human cervix using organoids. The researchers used the platform to study sexually transmitted infections for a herpes virus. The model can potentially also be used to study human papillomavirus (HPV), which is one of the main causes of cervical cancer. The results will be published in Cell Stem Cell on the 13th of April, 2021. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

Differences in herpes virus symptoms may relate to variations in strain gene expression
(Penn State) Why do some people with cold sores around their lips experience painful lesions, while others have no symptoms at all, yet still spread the virus? A new study conducted at Penn State finds that these differences could be due to variations in the way certain strains of herpes simplex (HSV-1) -- the virus that causes cold sores, as well as genital herpes -- activate gene expression in neurons.

Viral epitope profiling of COVID-19 patients reveals cross-reactivity and correlates of severity
Understanding humoral responses to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is critical for improving diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines. Deep serological profiling of 232 coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients and 190 pre–COVID-19 era controls using VirScan revealed more than 800 epitopes in the SARS-CoV-2 proteome, including 10 epitopes likely recognized by neutralizing antibodies. Preexisting antibodies in controls recognized SARS-CoV-2 ORF1, whereas only COVID-19 patient antibodies primarily recognized spike protein and nucleoprotein.
