Fungi detected in 35 cancer types, often intracellular

In a recent article published in the journal Cell, researchers found fungal deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and cells at low abundances across many human cancers, with cancer type-dependent variations in fungus community composition and fungal-bacteriome interactions. Study: Pan-cancer analyses reveal cancer-type-specific…

Potent hypervalent nanoparticles against HIV, Lassa and SARS-CoV-2 variants

In a recent study published in the journal Advanced Science, researchers developed molecularly imprinted nanoparticles (nanoMIPs) with broad-spectrum activity against lethal viruses. Study: Rational Development of Hypervalent Glycan Shield-Binding Nanoparticles with Broad-Spectrum Inhibition against Fatal Viruses Including SARS-CoV-2 Variants. Image…

Kiwira virus: a new bat-borne hantavirus detected in Africa

A recent Viruses journal study discusses the Kiwira virus, which belongs to the Hantaviridae family, including its discovery, phylogenetic placement, and tissue distribution of viral ribonucleic acid (RNA). Study: Kiwira Virus, a Newfound Hantavirus Discovered in Free-tailed Bats (Molossidae) in East…

The role of bacteria in cancer growth

Tumor-associated microbiota is an important component of the tumor microenvironment (TME) across 33 types of human cancer. However, little evidence is available regarding the spatial distribution and localization of these microbes in tumor cells.  Addressing this gap in research, a…

Bombali ebolavirus has been detected among bats in Mozambique

In a recent study published in Emerging Infectious Diseases, researchers reported on the detection of Bombali virus (BOMV, of the ebolavirus genus) ribonucleic acid (RNA) among three free-tailed Mops condylurus (Molossidae) bat species in Mozambique. Study: Bombali Ebolavirus in Mops…
