He writes about viruses at <a href=”http://www.virology.ws” target=”_blank”>virology blog</a>.
  • Sentinel dendritic cells present viral antigens in lymph nodes, but may also become infected, spreading virus systemically. What controls the difference between infection and antigen presention?
  • Trypanosoma theileri, which causes chronic but inapparent infection in cattle, is being used as a vector to deliver antigens. The parasite has been used to induce antibodies to Babesia in cows.
  • A live, attenuated Chlamydia vaccine has been developed that protects non-human primates from trachoma. The vaccine strain used lacks a plasmid that confers virulence.

I’ll be back next Friday with more selections.

    Insomnia or lack of sleep is never a desirable thing. This is especially considering the effects on the performance of an individual at work or even at school. It is on this basis that drugs have been invented to take care of such scenarios and induce sleep. One of the most commonly used drugs is Ambien.
