A three-dimensional 'map' of a critical protein that malaria parasites use to invade human red blood cells could lead to a vaccine countering the most widespread species of the parasite.
With use of synthetic opioid "designer drugs" on the rise, scientists from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have a new strategy to curb addiction and even prevent fatal overdoses.
Research into disease prevention on British dairy farms has revealed a variation in how vaccination strategies are implemented by farmers and vets.
Scientists at the Universities of York and Torino have used mathematics as a tool to provide precise details of the structure of protein nanoparticles, potentially making them more useful in vaccine design.
An interdisciplinary team of Oxford University researchers has devised a new technique to speed up the development of novel vaccines.
A team of researchers at Kansas State University, in collaboration with Garcia-Sastre of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, has developed a vaccine that protects poultry from multiple strains of avian influenza ...
Scientists have used the UK's synchrotron science facility, Diamond Light Source, to solve the structure of a key enzyme in Streptococcus pneumonia (the pneumococcus). These bacteria cause a range of respiratory infections, ...
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is creating a stockpile of avian influenza vaccines, but an expert suggests careful consideration of the strategy and cautions that the strain of the next outbreak is unknown.
Researchers at Brigham Young University have devised a system to speed up the process of making life-saving vaccines for new viruses.
Carbohydrates are often considered the 'Cinderella' molecules of biology yet they are a feature of an increasing number of medicines, from small molecule drugs to protein therapeutics or vaccines.
