ReSViNET's RSV Dashboard is 𝐋𝐈𝐕𝐄!
ReSViNET Foundation is supporting healthcare decisions by providing transparency and accessibility to shared global RSV surveillance data. The dashboard will help simplify tracking changes in RSV seasonality globally.
Association of COVID-19 Infection With Incident Diabetes
SARS-CoV-2 infection may lead to acute and chronic sequelae. Emerging evidence suggests a higher risk of diabetes after infection, but population-based evidence is still sparse.
SARS-CoV-2 Omicron boosting induces de novo B cell response in humans
The primary two-dose SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccine series are strongly immunogenic in humans, but the emergence of highly infectious variants necessitated additional doses and the development of new variant-derived vaccines.
ESWI Respiratory Virus Summit 2022
ESWI pandemic preparedness summit: where science and policy meet
Main outcome of the ESWI summit “Pandemic Preparedness: Where Science and Policy Meet”, which took place in Brussels in June 2022, was recently published in the scientific journal One Health Outlook.
We need to keep an eye on avian influenza
H5N1 avian influenza viruses of the A/goose/Guangdong/1/96 lineage have been circulating in wild birds for many years, have inflicted significant economic losses on the poultry industry and have caused zoonotic infections since 1997.
Genetic evidence of susceptible wildlife in SARS-CoV-2 positive samples at the Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market
Analysis and interpretation of data released by the Chinese Center for Disease Control
Subclass-switched anti-spike IgG3 oligoclonal cocktails strongly enhance Fc-mediated opsonization
Is it possible to improve the antibodies that the body produces to fight SARS-CoV2? In a study led by researchers from Lund University in Sweden, this was investigated by redesigning antibodies and combining them against the virus.
Estimation of the number of RSV-associated hospitalisations in adults in the European Union
RSV is a major cause of lower respiratory tract infections in older adults. Estimating RSV- associated hospitalisation is critical for planning RSV-related healthcare needs for the ageing population across Europe.
Influenza A(H5N1) detection in two asymptomatic poultry farm workers in Spain, September to October 2022: suspected environmental contamination
In autumn 2022, the Spanish Influenza National Reference Laboratory (NRL) confirmed the detection of influenza A(H5N1) in samples from two asymptomatic workers linked to an outbreak in a poultry farm in Spain.
When to update COVID-19 vaccine composition
Vaccines against different SARS-CoV-2 variants have been approved, but continued surveillance is needed to determine when the antigen composition of vaccines should be updated, together with clinical studies to assess vaccine efficacy.
The Journey to RSV Vaccines — Heralding an Era of Structure-Based Design
After a 1960s RSV vaccine was found to enhance disease in previously unexposed infants, development was put on hold. But structure-based design has led to effective RSV vaccines that now await approval.
Evidence for an aquatic origin of influenza virus and the order Articulavirales
The emergence of novel disease-causing viruses in mammals is part of the long evolutionary history of viruses. Tracing these evolutionary histories contextualises virus spill over events and may help to elucidate how and why they occur.
