Asthma: Researchers discover how exposure to microbes protects against asthma
The incidence of asthma is increasing steadily. One of the reasons given for this rise is the excessive level of hygiene in our environment. Studies have indeed shown that exposure to a so-called " non-hygienic " environment, rich in microbes, plays a protective role against the development of allergies, including asthma. New research shows that exposure to bacterial DNA drastically amplifies a population of pulmonary macrophages and makes them strongly immunosuppressive, which prevents and treats asthma in mice. This discovery offers promising prospects for the development of a cell therapy based on the administration of ...

HIV co-infection influences natural selection on M. tuberculosis
(Molecular Biology and Evolution (Oxford University Press)) While M. tuberculosis has been evolving with humans for thousands of years, HIV co-infections create host immunological environments that this bacterium has not encountered before and could, therefore, be nudging it to evolve new characteristics. Now, an evolutionary analysis of M. tuberculosis full genome sequences from HIV uninfected and HIV co-infected individuals uncovered specific sites within M. tuberculosis genomes where the bacterium may have been compelled to evolve in response to HIV-1 co-infections.

Report: Increase in allergy auto-injector scripts, with little guidance on optimal use
Prescriptions of emergency allergy auto-injectors have increased over the last decade, according to research published in the British Journal of General Practice, but there is little guidance for general practitioners on the optimal use of these devices. The most recent guidelines suggest that each child at risk of anaphylaxis should be given no more than 2 devices each year.
