Human neutrophil lipocalin in fMLP-activated whole blood as a diagnostic means to distinguish between acute bacterial and viral infections.

The distinction between causes of acute infections is a major clinical challenge. Current biomarkers, however, are not sufficiently accurate. Human neutrophil lipocalin (HNL) in serum distinguishes ac...

The bitter side of sweet: the role of Galectin-9 in immunopathogenesis of viral infections.

In recent years, a critical role for β-galactoside-binding protein, Galectin-9 (Gal-9) has emerged in infectious disease, autoimmunity, and cancer. It is a ligand for T cell immunoglobulin mucin doma...

A game of survival: herpesvirus strategies of autophagy manipulation.

Viruses are a very "clever" group of pathogens and well known for disrupting multiple processes in host cells. One of them is autophagy, a conserved mechanism that relies on degradation of intracellul...

Respiratory Infections: Fungal Infections.

Fungal infections cause pneumonia but are less common than bacterial or viral etiologies; therefore, fungal infections often are diagnosed late and can be lethal in a small percentage of cases. Althou...
