Purified bacterial extract sprayed into lungs protection against all four major classes of pathogens including those responsible for anthrax and bubonic plague

Washington, D.C. — A purified extract prepared from a common microbe and delivered to the lungs of laboratory mice in a spray set off a healthy immune response and provided powerful protection against all four major classes of pathogens including those responsible for anthrax and bubonic plague, according […]

Q Fever microbe’s genome is deciphered

Study sheds light on potential bioterror agent, Coxiella burnetii Rockville, MD — Scientists at The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) and their collaborators have deciphered and analyzed the complete genome sequence of Coxiella burnetii, a potential bioterror agent that causes Q Fever. C. burnetii, which was first isolated […]

Anthrax cellular entry point uncovered

Discovering the anthrax-Mac-1 gateway is a milestone in the ongoing efforts to protect humans from bioterrorism and bio-warfare BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The long-sought-after biological “gateway” that anthrax uses to enter healthy cells has been uncovered by microbiologists at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Anthrax spores enter […]

Virus kills breast cancer cells in laboratory

A nondisease-causing virus kills human breast cancer cells in the laboratory, creating opportunities for potential new cancer therapies, according to Penn State College of Medicine researchers who tested the virus on three different breast cancer types that represent the multiple stages of breast cancer development. Adeno-associated virus type […]

The bioweapon is in the post

You might think it would be difficult for a terrorist to obtain genes from the smallpox virus, or a similarly vicious pathogen. Well, it’s not. Armed with a fake email address, a would-be bioterrorist could probably order the building blocks of a deadly biological weapon online, and receive […]

Cholesterol Lowerings Drugs May Create Manifestations of severe irritability included homicidal impulses, threats to others, road rage, generation of fear in family members, and damage to property.

Severe irritability associated with statin cholesterol-lowering drugs Background: As use of a drug becomes widespread, the full spectrum of its effects becomes clearer. Although a link has been suggested  between low or lowered cholesterol and irritability/aggression, less is known about possible links between irritability and   statins. Aim: To assess […]

Viruses with integrated gene switch

Contact: Dr. Sibylle Kohlstädt s.kohlstaedt@dkfz.de Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres Numerous viruses are used in the service of science today. They serve as gene taxis to transfer therapeutic genes into body cells or as therapeutic viruses targeted to infect and destroy cancer cells. For such applications, the […]

OHSU research suggests America may over-vaccinate

    PORTLAND, Ore. –A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine this week by Oregon Health & Science University researchers suggests that timelines for vaccinating and revaccinating Americans against disease should possibly be reevaluated and adjusted. The study shows that in many cases, the […]
