Understanding the oceans microbes is key to the Earth's future
Life on Earth may owe its existence to tiny microorganisms living in the oceans, but the effect of human-induced change on the vital services these microbes perform for the planet remains largely unstudied. View News Article (2005-12-09)

'Achilles' heel' of the herpes virus possibly found
It's one of the most common viruses in America, and one that causes the most guilt and shame. It can get inside almost any kind of human cell, reproduce in vast numbers, and linger for years in the body, causing everything from recurrent genital blisters to sores around the mouth. Its complications can kill, and it may increase susceptibility to many nerve and brain disorders. View News Article (2005-07-25)

Study holds promise for new way to fight HIV
Researchers have confirmed for the first time the benefit of an innate defense system present in the few patients who remain healthy after years of infection with HIV despite receiving no treatment, according to an article published in the September edition of the Journal of Virology. View News Article (2005-09-02)

Drug resistance may travel same path as quorum sensing
The cellular "pumps" associated with multi-drug resistance in bacteria may also be involved in exporting signals responsible for cell-cell communication, a process known as quorum sensing. View News Article (2006-02-07)

SLU Researchers Uncover Direct Evidence on How HIV Invades Healthy Cells
Using sophisticated detection methods, researchers at the Saint Louis University Institute for Molecular Virology (IMV) have demonstrated the molecular mechanism by which the HIV virus infects, or integrates, healthy cells. The discovery could lead to new drug treatments for HIV. View News Article (2005-12-22)

Fragment of Yellow Fever Virus May Hold Key to Safer Vaccine
In one of the first molecular studies of the human antibody response to yellow fever, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) researchers and their colleagues have found the crucial bit of virus that people's immune systems need to spot and quash this often-fatal re-emerging disease. View News Article (2005-06-17)

UCLA scientists discover immune response to HIV differs, even in identical twins
In findings illustrating the difficulty of developing an AIDS vaccine, UCLA AIDS Institute researchers report the immune systems in two HIV-positive identical twins responded to the infection in different ways. View News Article (2005-12-07)

HIV-1 kills immune cells in the gut that may never bounce back
People with HIV have been living longer, healthier lives since the development of highly active antiretroviral therapy (or HAART) in 1995. In fact, most patients on the drug regimen do so well that, according to blood tests, their immune cells appear to return to pre-HIV levels. View News Article (2006-12-05)

Monkeypox mystery: New research may explain why 2003 outbreak in the US wasn't deadly
An outbreak of 72 cases of monkeypox in the United States during the summer of 2003 didn't produce a single fatality, even though the disease usually kills 10 percent of those infected. View News Article (2005-07-18)

Researcher at UGA College of Veterinary Medicine identifies new way of combating viral diseases
Four seemingly unrelated viral diseases may some day be defeated by a single treatment, according to a recent collaborative study involving researchers at the University of Georgia's College of Veterinary Medicine. View News Article (2005-09-13)
