Penn Study Reveals New Therapeutic Target for Slowing the Spread of Flu Virus

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Influenza A hijacks host proteins for viral RNA splicing and blocking these interactions caused replication of the virus to slow, which could point to novel strategies for antiviral therapies.

Flu Virus is Protected by Mucus When Airborne, Regardless of Humidity

Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

Mucus and other airway secretions that are expelled when a person with the flu coughs or exhales appear to protect the virus when it becomes airborne, regardless of humidity levels, a creative experiment conducted by the University of Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech discovered.

Genetic Screening Tool Identifies How the Flu Infiltrates Cells

University of Chicago Medical Center

Researchers at the University of Chicago have developed a genetic screening tool that identified two key factors that allow the influenza virus to infect human lung cells. The technique uses new gene editing tools to create a library of modified cells, each missing a different gene, allowing scientists to see which changes impact their response to flu. This in turn could identify potential targets for antiviral drugs.

For a Better Influenza Vaccine, Focus on the Neglected “N”

University of Chicago Medical Center

In the April 5, 2018 issue of the journal Cell, researchers push for greater emphasis on the neglected viral-surface influenza protein neuraminidase. For decades, flu vaccines have concentrated on hemagglutinin. The authors maintain that a focus on neuraminidase could lower infection rates and lessen severity.
