Johns Hopkins researchers warn of new infectious diseases and death due to global warmingIL-18: A Link between Innate and Adaptive Immunity

IL-18 participates in both innate and acquired immunity. Recent studies have implicated IL-18 pathway in autoimmune diseases, metabolic disorders, and cancers. Sino Biological has developed a panel of IL-18 and IL-18 receptor reagents for studying the biology of IL-18.

   Study discovers how microcephaly and blindness may develop in Zika-infected fetusesStudy discovers how microcephaly and blindness may develop in Zika-infected fetuses
 
A study led by Edward Wojcik, PhD, Associate Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine, identified how microcephaly (abnormally small heads) and blindness may develop in Zika-infected fetuses, as well as a new way to potentially prevent these neurodevelopmental defects.
 
 Virus-cell interaction may explain the high infection rate of COVID-19 virus
 
Virus-cell interaction may explain the high infection rate of COVID-19 virusBioengineering scientists have now detected a formerly unknown interaction between the spike (or “S”) protein of SARS-CoV-2 and receptors in human cells.
 
 
 Comparative study of SARS, MERS, BAT‐SARS, and SARS-CoV-2
 
Comparative study of SARS, MERS, BAT‐SARS, and SARS-CoV-2Even though a comparative study on the genomic sequences of SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, and SARS-CoV-2 is available, there is a gap in the research in regards to the comparison between four types of coronaviruses, namely, SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, BAT-CoV, and SARS-CoV-2. A new study, which deals with the genomic comparison between the sequence of the above-stated four types of coronaviruses, has been published in the Journal of Medical Virology.
 
 
 Long-term complications are common among COVID-19 recovered individuals
 
Long-term complications are common among COVID-19 recovered individualsA team of scientists from the United Kingdom has recently conducted a multicenter, prospective cohort study to investigate long-term consequences of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
