Abstract

Peptides delivered on the surface of influenza virosomes have been shown to induce solid humoral immune responses in experimental animals. High titers of peptide-specific antibodies were also induced in a phase 1a clinical trial in volunteers immunized with virosomal formulations of two...read more

Avian Influenza: Innate Immune Adjuvant

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.

Immunomodulating Agents

Immunomodulating agents are substances that stimulate or suppresse the immune system and may help the body combat againsts cancer, infection, or other diseases. Discover the latest research on immunomodulating agents here.

Viral Respiratory Diseases

Viral respiratory infections can affect the upper or lower respiratory tract. These lung and airway infections can be caused by numerous different viruses and can be dangerous for those who have a weakened immune system. Discover the latest research on viral respiratory diseases here.

Malaria

Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease that affects humans and other animals. Malaria causes symptoms that typically include fever, tiredness, vomiting, and headaches. Discover the latest research on malaria here,

Malaria Vaccines

Research for development of a malaria vaccine is currently underway to find an effective modality to control and eliminate the transmission of malaria. To date, no vaccine has been found to be efficacious in fighting against malaria. Here is the latest research on malaria vaccines.

Influenza

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is an infectious disease caused by an influenza virus.Symptoms can be mild to severe. The most common symptoms include: high fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle pains, headache, coughing, sneezing, and feeling tired. Discover the latest research on influenza here.

Influenza Drug Therapy

The influenza virus is a common viral infection that can rapidly evolve and render previous vaccines ineffective. There are two types of FDA approved drug treatments for the influenza virus, neuraminidase inhibitors and M2-inhibitors. Discover the latest research on influenza drug therapy here.

Immunology - Virus

The immune reactions to nonenveloped viruses are predominantly humoral responses against extracellular viruses, a process that results in lysis and death of the infected cell, and because viral antigens are not present on the cell membrane. In contrast, cell-mediated immunity, together with humoral immune response, plays a major role in the defense against enveloped viral infections. Discover the latest research on immunology and virus here.

Antimalarial Agents

Antimalarial agents, also known as antimalarials, are designed to prevent or cure malaria. Discover the latest research on antimalarial agents here.
