Targeting cytomegalovirus may help restore health A virus that is present in most people in a latent state may induce or exacerbate anemia in patients with kidney disease, according to a study appearing in an upcoming issue of the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN). The findings point to a new therapeutic target for affected individuals. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients and kidney transplant recipients often develop anemia, or low levels of red blood cells. This...

An experimental vaccine against human cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, which endangers the developing fetus, organ transplant recipients, patients with HIV and others who have a weakened immune system, proved safe and more effective than previous vaccines developed to prevent infection by the ubiquitous virus. The first-of-its-kind approach to preventing human CMV infection, developed by a team of scientists at UC Davis and the University of Alabama, Birmingham, induced broader...

According to a study published in the journal, Immunity and Aging on July 23, 2013, the concept of accelerating decline in the immune system caused by persistent infections has been suggested in many studies.(1) polyDNA recommends Gene-Eden-VIR to boost the immune system against latent viruses. Rochester, NY (PRWEB) August 01, 2013 Aging and latent viruses join forces in a vicious cycle. Aging decreases the efficiency of the immune system. As a result, the concentration of latent viruses...

Ribosome-mapping technique may provide insights into other viral proteomes as well New findings reveal the surprisingly complex protein-coding capacity of the human cytomegalovirus, or HCMV, and provide the first steps toward understanding how the virus manipulates human cells during infection. The genome of the HCMV was first sequenced over 20 years ago, but researchers have now investigated the proteome–the complete set of expressed proteins–of this common pathogen as well....

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A common, yet normally dormant virus has been found to cause diabetes later in life in people who are infected with it. The virus, known as cytomegalovirus (CMV), can infect anyone and once a person is infected, he or she has the virus for life. However, in most people, CMV causes no ill effects. The link was found by researchers from Leiden University Medical Center (the Netherlands) and University of Tubingen Medical School...
