Wildlife biologists tracking a tumor-causing virus first diagnosed in eastern wild turkeys five years ago have found the virus is far more widespread—but less deadly—than expected.
Recently published veterinary research at Iowa State University shows that influenza vaccines administered in the upper respiratory system of pigs are more effective in some key respects than standard vaccine injections.
Treating surfaces with cold atmospheric pressure plasma (CAPP) may reduce the risk of transmitting norovirus, a contagious virus leading to stomach pain, nausea and diarrhea, according to a new study.
A new study from Lund University in Sweden indicates that inherited viruses that are millions of years old play an important role in building up the complex networks that characterise the human brain.
A study, in which the International School for Advanced Studies collaborated with the Josef Stefan Institute of Ljubljana, analyzed how genome mutations of RNA viruses tend to be lethal for these infectious agents. It takes ...
African swine fever, or ASF, is a viral disease that kills almost every pig it infects and is likened to Ebola. It gained a foothold in Georgia in 2007, when contaminated pig meat landed from a ship from South-East Africa ...
The KISS concept – keep it simple, stupid – may work for many situations. However, when it comes to evolution, complexity appears to be key for prosperity and propagating future generations.
Since 1998, hundreds and sometimes thousands of dead eider ducks have been washing up every year on Cape Cod's beaches in late summer or early fall, but the reasons behind these cyclic die-offs have remained a mystery.
Ebola virus may replicate in an exotic way: Study indicates target for future drugs for measles, Ebola, RSV
University of Utah researchers ran biochemical analysis and computer simulations of a livestock virus to discover a likely and exotic mechanism to explain the replication of related viruses such as Ebola, measles and rabies. ...
