The new generation of CAR T cells are equipped to overcome many of the failures of endogenous virus-specific CTLs to control infection. So far, second-generation CAR T cells have proven safe and have been shown to have antiviral activity in both mouse and non-human primate models of HIV infection.
transport and management of patients with Ebola virus disease, are well documented.4-8 EMS crews do not consistently comply with such basic infection control practices as hand hygiene.4 More broadly, the compliance of EMS providers with standard infection control precautions and equipment disinfection has been described
Dec 29, 2017 · Thus, HSPCs engineered to carry HIV-targeting CARs could feasibly provide a lifetime supply of CAR T cells that continue to tackle any re-emerging infection. Stem cell-based expression of CARs contributes a long-lived source of these cells, capable of providing lifelong immune surveillance against recrudescent virus, the authors observed.

HBVQN : Diagnosis of acute or chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is based on the presence of HBV serologic markers such as hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and hepatitis B core IgM antibody (anti-HBc IgM), or the presence of HBV DNA detected by molecular assays.
The discovery of this subtype of immune cells, called CD8αα+ T cells, opens a new avenue of research to develop a vaccine to prevent and treat herpes simplex virus type 2, or HSV-2. Identifying these T cells specific molecular targets, called epitopes, is the next step in developing a vaccine.

infectious disease caused by a newly identified human coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Currently, no effective drug exists to treat SARS-CoV infection. In this study, we inves-tigated whether a panel of commercially available antiviral drugs exhibit in vitro antiSARS-CoV activity. A drug-screening assay that scores for virus-induced cytopathic
