Dear Friends,

this week we have several papers of interest:

  1. preclinical evaluation of a CoxB1 vaccine (Finland-Sweden) http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.vaccine.2017.05.057;

  2. miRNAs produced in islet cells upon CoxB5 infection may influence the expression of diabetes susceptibility genes (Craig http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26558682);

  3. the interesting observation of complement components being produced in brain during viral infection (similar studies could be done in viral diabetes);

  4. aggegates of bifidobacteria lipoproteins may have protective effect against CoxB4 (Hober);

  5. confluence of "different" epidemics in the US: HCV, diabetes, obesity, neprhopathy;

  6. diabetes as predisposing factor to severe influenza;

  7. finally, diabetic ulcers infected with Staph aureus successfully treated with phages (J Infect Dis).

 

Have a nice week end,

Antonio
