Dynamic observation of the national team of swimmers for a period of 3 years demonstrated that physical and psychosomal loadings of competitive sport led to the suppression of local immunity, depending on the level of competitive stress. In a certain number of sportsmen the phenomenon of the complete disappearance of some classes of immunoglobulins and normal antibodies from saliva was registered. The daily rhythms of immune reactions had no influence of the regularities of fluctuations in the levels of immunoglobulins and antibodies at different periods of sporting activities when these changes were most pronounced. Still the peaks of immunoglobulin levels were registered in the morning and those of normal antibodies, in the evening after physical strain. During the period of competitions at the time of a sharp drop in the content of immunoglobulins in saliva a rise in the level of anamnestic antibodies was observed. The dynamics of immune reactions in saliva did not essentially depend on the sex of swimmers. The results of these studies are indicative of the necessity of immunoprophylactic and immunocorrective measures in the group of immunological risk.

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.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.
