Novel mRNA-lipid nanoparticle vaccine encoding four mpox virus surface proteins generates robust immune responses against orthopoxviruses

In a recent study posted to the bioRxiv* preprint server, researchers described a messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA)-lipid nanoparticle mpox vaccine encoding four conserved mpox virus surface proteins which induced mpox virus-specific immunity and elicited heterologous protection when challenged with lethal vaccinia virus. Study: A monkeypox mRNA-lipid nanoparticle vaccine targeting virus binding, entry, and transmission drives … Read more

The biological properties of the SARS-CoV-2 E protein in the context of HIV-1

In a recent study published in Retrovirologyresearchers assessed the effectiveness of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and SARS-CoV-2 envelope (E) proteins against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1. Study: The envelope proteins from SARS-CoV-2 and SARS-CoV potently reduce the infectivity of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1).
