CARD9 is a molecule that plays a role in defending mammals, including humans, against fungal infections. A study published on December 17th in PLOS Pathogens reveals how CARD9 specifically protects the mammalian central nervous system (CNS), findings that might help the development of immune therapies against dangerous fungal infections.

Novel Deadly Virus: A new rhabdovirus may be responsible for an outbreak of fatal hemorrhagic fever.  By Beth Marie Mole, October 1, 2012  A global network of researchers has found a new virus—related to the virus that causes rabies—that may be responsible for three cases of acute hemorrhagic fever in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) during 2009, according to a study in PLOS Pathogens released last week (September 27).

A new rhabdovirus may be responsible for an outbreak of fatal hemorrhagic fever.
