Skin Patch Delivers DNA Vaccines Painlessly
2013-01-28 18:48:59

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online MIT researchers reported in the journal Nature Materials about a new type of vaccine-delivery film that could improve the effectiveness of DNA vaccines. The vaccines could eventually not only overcome the safety risks of using viruses to vaccinate against diseases like HIV, but could also be more stable. Scientists have been attempting to deliver DNA vaccines to human patients using techniques like electroporation. This...

The innate immune system detects invasive pathogens and activates defense mechanisms to eliminate them. Pathogens, however, employ a variety of tricks to block this process. A new study shows how the measles virus thwarts the system, by means of a simple hairpin-like structure. The innate immune system is the body´s first line of defense against invasive pathogens and noxious chemicals. Essentially the system consists of an array of receptors that recognize particular molecular...

Federally Recommended Immunization Schedule Ok
2013-01-16 18:59:42

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Skeptical parents and organizations have been raising concerns about the federally recommended immunization schedule for young children in recent years over the notion that it is potentially dangerous or has negative side effects. In light of this debate, the Institute of Medicine, which advises the government, has released a new study by 14 committee members that says the benefits of the federally recommended schedule far...

Better Vaccines Through Designer Bacteria
2013-01-16 04:49:54

Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Scientists from the University of Texas-Austin (UTA) recently revealed that they have been able to develop 61 new strains of genetically engineered bacteria that could boost the effectiveness of vaccines for diseases such as cholera, HPV, the flu, and pertussis. The findings on these strains of E. coli were featured in a recent edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. These strains of E. coli are part of a...

Virology Journal
2012-04-24 18:40:35

Virology Journal is an open-access peer-reviewed medical journal published by BioMed Central. It covers research related to viruses and the prevention of viral infection (including vaccination, the use of antiviral agents, and gene therapy). Virology Journal was established in 2004 and is edited by Robert F. Garry. The goal of the journal is to cover rapid communications amongst virologists. The journal has not been published without controversy, however. On 21, July 2010, the journal...

A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates inside the living cells of organisms. It is a small infectious agent that can replicate only inside the living cells of organisms. Most are too small to be seen by anything but a microscope and they infect all organisms from animals to plants to bacteria. The first one discovered was the tobacco virus in 1898. Since then around 5,000 viruses have been described in detail although there are millions of different types. They are found in...

Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) is a virus in the family Rhabdoviridae. Rabies is in the same family. VSV infects insects and animals and is important to farmers in certain regions of the world where it can infect cattle. It is a common laboratory virus used for studying the Rhabdoviridae family and viral evolution. It is the prototypic member of the vesiculovirus genera of the Rhabdovirus family. The genome is a single molecule of negative-sense RNA that encodes five major proteins.

Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is a positive-sense single stranded RNA virus that infects plants, namely tobacco and other members of the family Solanaceae. It causes characteristic patterns on the leaves. In 1930 it was determined that an infectious agent was determined to be a virus. Adolf Mayer first described the disease in 1883. The disease can be transferred between plants similar to bacterial infections. Dimitri Ivanovski was the first to show that infected sap remained infectious even...
