A research coordinated by the UAB has succeeded in testing a vaccine against leishmaniasis.
Genome sequencing alone provides researchers with only limited information on the organism works because it neither reveals how the system is regulated nor does it indicate the role of each specific DNA sequence or RNA transcript.
Two remarkable discoveries were today revealed by researchers into genome analysis of Leishmania parasites.
For millions of people who live under the constant threat of Leishmania infection, a new discovery by Brazilian scientists may lead to new breakthroughs, preventing these parasites from taking hold in the body or reducing the severity of infections once they occur.
Hundreds of millions of people, mainly in developing countries, are disabled by infectious diseases, according to the World Health Organization.More than 12 million people in 88 countries are infected with leishmaniasis, a parasitic disease spread by the bite of infected sand flies. Nearly 2 million new cases are reported and about 70,000 people die from the disease annually.Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have discovered that compounds derived from a natural product can...
