Interferon-stimulated gene products take on a number of diverse roles. Collectively, they are highly effective at resisting and controlling pathogens. Discover the latest research on interferon-stimulated genes here.
Acute viral rhinopharyngitis, also known as "common cold", is an acute, self-limiting viral infection of the upper respiratory tract involving the nose, sinuses, pharynx and larynx. Discover the latest research on acute viral rhinopharyngitis here.
Argentine hemorrhagic fever (AHF) is an endemo-epidemic disease caused by junín virus (JUNV), a member of the arenaviridae family. Discover the latest research on AHF here.
Adjuvants systems that are added to vaccines against avian influenza have be explored to enhance the innate immune system response against the virus. Here is the latest research on avian influenza and the innate immune adjuvant.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
COVID-19 (short for “Coronavirus Disease 2019") is the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. COVID-19 represents a particular challenge to people with serious chronic medical conditions such as diabetes. To keep our community as informed as possible, the American Diabetes Association is partnering with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative's Meta to highlight the latest research developments at the intersection of COVID-19 and diabetes.
This feed focuses on the application of CRISPR-Cas system in high-throughput genome-wide screens to identify genes that affect virus-host interactions. Here is the latest research.
Chickenpox is caused by the varicella-zoster virus and leads to skin rashes and blisters. This highly contagious disease can be prevented with vaccines and treated with antivirals. Discover the latest research on Chickenpox here.
Chikungunya fever is a viral disease transmitted to humans by the bite of chikungunya virus infected aedes mosquitoes. Discover the latest research on chikungunya here.
Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a potentially fatal tick-borne viral disease and one of the deadly hemorrhagic fevers.The onset of CCHF is sudden, with initial signs and symptoms including headache, high fever, back pain, joint pain, stomach pain, and vomiting. Red eyes, a flushed face, a red throat, and petechiae (red spots) on the palate are common. Discover the latest research on CCHF here.
