Annual influenza vaccination does not prevent natural immunity

Added: 13.11.2017 11:10 | 2 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Earlier studies have suggested that having repeated annual influenza vaccination can prevent natural immunity to the virus, and potentially increase the susceptibility to influenza illness in the event of a pandemic, or when the vaccine does not 'match' the virus circulating in the community. But now, researchers at the Influenza Center in Bergen have published a study, which concludes that annual influenza vaccination does not increase susceptibility to influenza infection in years of vaccine mismatch.

New mechanism for battling influenza discovered

Added: 08.11.2017 15:16 | 10 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Just as flu season swings into full gear, researchers have uncovered a previously unknown mechanism by which the human immune system tries to battle the influenza A virus. The discovery sheds new light on how the virus -- which kills 12,000 to 56,000 people in the United States annually -- often wins, and it could ultimately lead to new treatments.

H3N2 mutation in last year's flu vaccine responsible for lowered efficacy

Added: 06.11.2017 15:23 | 2 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

The below average efficacy of last year's influenza vaccine (which was only 20 to 30 percent effective) can be attributed to a mutation in the H3N2 strain, a new study reports. With the mutation, most people receiving the egg-grown vaccine did not have immunity against H3N2 viruses that circulated last year.

In pursuit of a universal flu vaccine

Added: 03.11.2017 10:57 | 15 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Developing a universal flu vaccine that would protect against all seasonal and pandemic strains of the virus is no easy task, and new research suggests that one of the most promising strategies -- creating a vaccine that targets the 'stalk' of a protein that covers the flu virus -- is a strong one, but isn't completely bulletproof. Researchers found that the stalk of the hemagglutinin protein can vary in response to pressure from the immune system.

The common practice of growing influenza vaccine components in chicken eggs disrupts the major antibody target site on the virus surface, rendering the flu vaccine less effective in humans.

Identifying the mechanism for a new class of antiviral drugs could hasten their approval

Added: 27.10.2017 13:25 | 2 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

New research shows that a new class of antiviral drugs works by causing the virus' replication machinery to pause and backtrack, preventing the virus from efficiently replicating. This discovery, made possible by a high-throughput experimental technique called 'magnetic tweezers,' could speed the development and approval of related antiviral drugs.

Flu forecasting tool uses evolution to make earlier predictions

Added: 25.10.2017 14:05 | 2 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

A new flu forecasting tool aims to make better predictions by combining data about how the virus spreads with an estimate of how much the current virus evolved compared to recent years. The new model accurately predicted the total number of cases for each season in the US from 2002 to 2016, and produced an accurate, real-time prediction for the 2016-17 season before it started last year.

A new study offers a rare glimpse into the genetics of a herpes simplex virus transmission event -- information that may prove useful in future development of therapeutics and vaccines. The study reveals nearly perfect genetic transmission of the virus from a father to his son and lays the foundation for future studies exploring the genetic diversity of this virus.

H7N9 influenza is both lethal and transmissible in animal model for flu

Added: 19.10.2017 14:30 | 2 views | 0 comments


In 2013, an influenza virus began circulating among poultry in China. It caused several waves of human infection and as of late July 2017, nearly 1,600 people had tested positive for avian H7N9. Nearly 40 percent of those infected had died. In 2017, a medical researcher received a sample of H7N9 virus isolated from a patient in China who had died of the flu. He and his research team subsequently began work to characterize and understand it.
