Researchers have discovered how intestinal worm infections cross-talk with gut bacteria to help the immune system. Intestinal worms infect over 2 billion people across the world, mostly children, in areas with poor sanitation. But despite causing serious health problems, worms can actually help the…

Researchers have found a way to boost the effectiveness and cross-protective capabilities of an influenza A vaccine by adding a simple component. The research in mice could lead to better seasonal flu vaccines for humans, and also vaccines that could provide community protection in the early stages…
