Abstract Currently, treatments for dengue infection are only symptomatic as no antiviral agents nor vaccines are available to combat this virus. Despite challenges faced by researchers, many efforts are ongoing to reduce cases of dengue infection either by targeting the vector or the virus. Vector population is monitored and reduced by using mechanical, chemical and biological controls. Chemical control is achieved either by using synthetic or natural insecticides where the latter is more preferable. In biological control, bacteria, fungi and larvivorous fish are utilised to reduce the vector population. Moreover,...

Authors: Gawlinska K, Gawlinski D, Przegalinski E, Filip M Abstract A balanced maternal diet is necessary for the proper health and development of offspring. Recent clinical and preclinical studies have strongly indicated that maternal exposure to a high-fat diet (HFD) can have an irreversible impact on the structure and function of the offspring's brain and affect the immune system, which may predispose the offspring to brain disorders, including depression. The irisin/brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) axis is a pathway that influences several neurobehavioral mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of menta...
