The FAR protein family of parasitic nematodes

In this Review, Parks and colleagues examine what is known so far about fatty acid–and retinol-binding proteins (FARs), which belong to a unique family of excreted/secreted proteins (ESPs) found exclusively in nematodes.

Is Candida albicans an opportunistic oncogenic pathogen?

In this Pearls article, Sultan, Theofilou, and colleagues review prior research directly or indirectly linking Candida and oral cancer. They additionally describe the main proposed mechanisms by which this yeast species may induce cancer and highlight the need for further future mechanistic studies.

Timing of exposure is critical in a highly sensitive model of SARS-CoV-2 transmission

Ganti and colleagues evaluate viral spread in golden Syrian hamsters to define the impact of temporal and environmental conditions on the efficiency of SARS-CoV-2 transmission through the air. Their data show that exposure periods as brief as one hour are sufficient to support robust transmission.
