Varicella zoster virus glycoprotein C increases chemokine-mediated leukocyte migration

Abel Viejo-Borbolla and colleagues investigate varicella zoster virus' (VZS) effect on the function of chemokines and dicover that VZV glycoprotein C potentiates the activity of chemokines. This results in a higher migration of human leukocytes at low chemokine concentration and could attract additional susceptible leukocytes to the site of infection, enhancing virus spread and pathogenesis.

Leishmania enriettii (Muniz & Medina, 1948): A highly diverse parasite is here to stay

Rodrigo P. Soares, Larissa F. Paranaiba, and colleagues discuss leishmaniases, a spectrum of diseases caused by protozoans from the genus Leishmania. They focus specifically on L. enrietti in relation to vertebrate hosts and possible invertebrate vectors, and look at L. enrietti complex members in human and veterinary infections. Soares et al. conclude with a call for more studies on L. enrietti.
