23 Vaccine projects against Zika virus are in development, says WHO
"Experts agree that the development of a vaccine against the Zika virus is imperative," he said. "Projects in progress may start clinical trials before the end of 2016, but it may take years before a fully tested and licensed vaccine is available," he added. These early studies are focused on vaccine availability for pregnant or reproductive age women due to the risk of microcephaly.
According to the WHO Director-General, more than 30 companies are currently working on the development of new diagnostic tests of Zika's infection. "With regard to new medical products, experts agree that a reliable diagnostic test available at the time of care is the most urgent priority," he said. The idea of the Organization is to create analyzes to guide the development of these tests and to accelerate the process for these products to undergo evaluation by regulatory agencies in a number of countries.
Depression is characterized as a disease in which chemical imbalances occur in the so-called neurotransmitters. These substances are responsible for carrying the information through the network of neurons in our brain - including the sensations of pleasure, serenity, disposition, and well-being. "Depression will affect neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, noradrenaline, and melatonin, which interfere precisely with these feelings," says psychiatrist Luis Gustavo Brasil of Clínica Maia.
When a person is infected with HIV, treatment to prevent the immune system from being damaged is done through antiretroviral drugs, which reduce the virus present in the bloodstream, but without removing it definitely of the organism. This is because HIV, once inside the body, hides in places that until today scientists have not yet been able to find out what they are. Now, however, a new cancer remedy seems to have finally figured out where these "hiding places" are? of the virus that causes AI
Researchers at the University of California, United States studied PEP005, which is one of the "ingredients" used in treatment against the cancer, in a skin that was damaged by the action of solar rays. They then tested the new drug on laboratory-created cells and on antibodies extracted from 13 people living with HIV.
