Hiding their DNA genome inside the nucleus of the infected cells, the herpes viruses establish a lifelong infection in humans, and they are known to reactivate in response to different kinds of stress. The researchers have now found an important link between cellular stress responses, cell cycle…

Bacteria in the gut of disease-bearing insects -- including the mosquito which carries the Zika virus -- can be used as a Trojan horse to help control the insects' population, new research has shown. The results showed declines in fertility of up to 100 percent and an increase of 60 percent in the…

Doctors are seeing a rise in the number of parents requesting so-called 'vaginal seeding' for babies born by cesarean section, according to a new article. The practice, which is also known as microbirthing, involves taking a swab from the mother's vagina and wiping this over the baby's mouth, eyes,…

New research shows that copper can destroy MRSA spread by touching and fingertip contamination of surfaces. Frequently-touched surfaces in busy areas - such as hospitals, transport hubs and public buildings - are at high risk of community-acquired and healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) caused…
