“Functional CURE under some ENIGMATIC mechanisms: Choke-and-Mute, rather than Shoot-and-Kill ?” by Jacques Leibowitch – VIROLOGY DEPARTMENT SEMINAR
HIV signature on RIG-I-like receptors
The pathogenesis of HIV infection, and in particular the development of immunodeficiency, remains incompletely understood. During HIV infection both innate and adaptive immune responses are raised, but they appear to be insufficient or too […]
REEMFOAMY : Human infection with zoonotic simian foamy retroviruses: role of virological and immunological factors in restricting viral emergence
The public health relevance of retroviruses of zoonotic origin is illustrated by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic, the worldwide distribution of human T-lymphotropic viruses (HTLVs), and the morbidity and mortality associated with both […]
Mechanisms of HIV-1 replication and interaction with the immune system. More than 35 years after its appearance, the HIV/AIDS epidemic represents more than ever a public health threat worldwide. About 37 million people are […]
An unprecedented epidemic of Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) infection recently occurred in countries of the Indian Ocean area, causing an acute and painful syndrome with strong fever, asthenia, skin rash, polyarthritis, and lethal cases […]
