Infectious hypothesis of Alzheimer disease

The infectious hypothesis proposes that a pathogen is the root cause of Alzheimer disease. Seaks and Wilcock discuss the evidence supporting this hypothesis, highlighting what is currently known about herpesvirus and it's potential contributions to AD.

Characterising the epidemic spread of influenza A/H3N2 within a city through phylogenetics

Müller and colleagues use genetic sequence data and patient information to better understand local spread of influenza by looking at the 2016/2017 flu season in Basel, Switzerland. Analyses suggest that the elderly mainly transmit within their own transmission network and that school aged children are important drivers of the local spread of influenza.

Defensin-driven viral evolution

Karina Diaz and colleagues show that defensins can drive the evolution of non-enveloped viruses. Furthermore, they identify important components within human adenovirus that dictate sensitivity to defensins.
