Targeted public health interventions for an emerging epidemic are essential for preventing pandemics.
Species distribution modeling (SDM) has become an increasingly common approach to explore questions about ecology, geography, outbreak risk, and global change as they relate to infectious disease vectors.
New research reveals that intense COVID-19 viral exposure may diminish the shielding effects of vaccination and previous infection, resulting in “leaky” protection.
Implementation of newer anti-tuberculosis (TB) drugs may prolong the QT interval, increasing the risk of arrythmias and sudden cardiac death.
Bacillus cereus are generally thought of as nonpathogenic saprophytic Gram-positive spore formers. Occasionally, B. cereus is linked to food borne illness.
Whether SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 vaccines confer exposure-dependent (“leaky”) protection against infection remains unknown.
Deciphering the main target cells and viral replication dynamics of the novel SARS-CoV-2 corona virus is an essential prerequisite for understanding infection kinetics and disease progression within patients.
It has become increasingly difficult to register new active ingredients for the control of public health vectors due to costly efficacy and safety testing, as well as increasing timelines to registration. For example, it is estimated that a new insecticidal active costs approximately $300 million to develop.
Endometrial inflammation is associated with reduced pregnancy per artificial insemination (AI) and increased pregnancy loss in cows.
Prerequisites for adapting a TMDS to Ghana were met. A nighttime paediatric TMDS service was found to be needed, appealing, and feasible in Ghana. These data motivate the adaptation of a TMDS to urban and rural Ghana.
