Decrease In Large Wildlife Populations Drives Increase In Rodent-borne Disease And Risk To Humans
2014-04-29 03:30:12

Smithsonian Populations of large wildlife are declining around the world, while zoonotic diseases (those transmitted from animals to humans) are on the rise. A team of Smithsonian scientists and colleagues have discovered a possible link between the two.

Scientists at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a protein produced by the influenza A virus helps it outwit one of our body's natural defense mechanisms. That makes the protein a potentially good target for antiviral drugs directed against the influenza A virus. Better antiviral drugs could help the millions of people annually infected by flu, which kills up to 500,000 people each year. When an influenza virus infects a human cell, it uses some of the host's...
