Why is handwashing so important?
“clean hands” by Arlington County is licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0. According to MedlinePlus, you should wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. You may be more familiar with that rule of thumb to sing the “Happy Birthday” song at least two times through before turning off that faucet. But while we’re admonished to do so, it’s difficult to say what’s actually put into practice even while we know it helps stop the spread of germs. In fact, it can even help stop the spread of superbugs! How else is it important? The Center for Disease Control has put together some fast facts (and citations) on the importance of...

Silence is golden -- Suppressing host response to Ebola virus may help to control infection
(Boston University Medical Center) The Ebola virus causes a severe, often fatal illness when it infects the human body. Initially targeting cells of the immune system called macrophages, white blood cells that absorb and clear away pathogens, a new study has found a way to potentially 'silence' these Ebola virus-infected macrophages.The findings, which appear in the Journal of Virology, could lead to new treatment options for Ebola virus disease.

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.

From Genome Research: Pathogen demonstrates genome flexibility in cystic fibrosis
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory) Chronic lung infections can be devastating for patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), and infection by Burkholderia cenocepacia, one of the most common species found in cystic fibrosis patients, is often antibiotic resistant. In a study published today in Genome Research, scientists sequenced and phenotyped multiple B. cenocepacia isolates from 16 CF patients. They found extensive variation among isolates during chronic lung infection as well as changes in clinically relevant bacterial phenotypes. (Source: EurekAlert! - Infectious and Emerging Diseases)

This is shorter than most infectious disease incubation periods. Although entry screening into countries is done, exit screening closer to the source is a better model as noted with the recent Ebola outbreak in west Africa in 2014.
