A study conducted at the University of São Paulo in Brazil and described in an article published in the journal Scientific Reports shows that anti-inflammatory drugs commonly taken by children may be associated with dental enamel defects (DEDs), currently seen in about 20% of children worldwide.
Antibiotic resistance, when infection-causing bacteria evolve so they are no longer affected by typical antibiotics, is a global concern.
A pseudovirus system based on deep mutational scanning determines how SARS-CoV-2 mutations can affect its ability to escape neutralization.

Researchers found that virus-like particles produced by co-expression of SARS-CoV-2 S, membrane, envelope, and nucleocapsid proteins contain S glycoproteins, which are modified by complex carbohydrates.
Populations of Drosophila suzukii fruit flies - so-called "spotted-wing Drosophila" that devastate soft-skinned fruit in North America, Europe and parts of South America - could be greatly suppressed with the introduction of genetically modified D. suzukii flies that produce only males after mating, according to new research from North Carolina State University.
A recent review paper by Portuguese and Spanish authors, recently published in the journal Biologics, revealed the current state of knowledge regarding hedgehog health – most notably the presence of infectious agents, diseases and other threats that can affect the health of the population.
