Study on cutaneous immune response to mosquito bites

Study on cutaneous immune response to mosquito bites Viruses transmitted by mosquitoes can cause severe diseases, particularly in tropical areas. Animal models and laboratory studies have shown that mosquito saliva, which is transmitted during a mosquito bite, can induce an immune response in the skin. In our current study we evaluated the induction of the … Read more

Study demonstrates the increased risk of aerosol exposure of Live Bird Markets workers to avian influenza viruses

Study demonstrates the increased risk of aerosol exposure of Live Bird Markets workers to avian influenza viruses Live bird markets (LBMs) have been identified as key factors in the spread, persistence and evolution of avian influenza viruses (AIVs). In addition, these settings have been associated with human infections with AIVs of pandemic concern. Exposure to … Read more
