Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As MERS Coronavirus continues to unleash its wrath in the Middle East, so far sickening 94 people and killing 46, researchers have struggled to find a source of infection. Once tying the SARS-like infections to pipistrelle bats, which carry a similar strain of the coronavirus, researchers now believe dromedary (one-humped) camels may be to blame. A team of researchers, led by Chantal Reusken of the National Institute for Public...

Max Planck Institute Diagnosing the presence of Yersinia pestis, the cause of plague, may soon be easier than ever before. Scientists working with Peter Seeberger, Director at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (MPIKG) in Potsdam and Professor at the Freie Universitat Berlin, have come up with a simple, inexpensive and reliable method of detecting the bacterium. The research team, specializing in glycochemistry glycobiology, first identified and synthesized an...

Researchers in the Antibody and Vaccine Group have developed two monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) called anti-4-1BB and anti-CD40 and investigated a third called anti-CTLA-4. Each of these antibodies binds to a different target molecule in the immune system, potentially heightening the body's own immune response to cancer. Published in the July edition of Clinical Cancer Research, the study has shown that the antibodies boost the immune system to fight neuroblastoma -- a form of childhood...

Researchers identify risk factor for autism in a subset of children: Maternal antibody-related autism UC Davis MIND Institute researchers have identified the specific antibodies that target fetal brain proteins in the blood of a subset of women whose children are diagnosed with autism. The finding is the first to pinpoint a specific risk factor for a significant subset of autism cases, as well as a biomarker for drug development and early diagnosis. The researchers have named autism...
