“Realization of the much-heralded advent of RNA vaccines with the successful mass treatment of COVID-19 arguably begins to draw down the second age of (recombinant) vaccines and opens the way for a plethora of new prophylactics and immunotherapy for previously intractable, virulent infections as diverse as gastric carcinoma and malaria. This third generation of new RNA vaccines are identified by reverse vaccinology; genomics led, forged at the interface of pathogen biology and RNA technology, and seasoned in the real word experience of clinical trials.”

Coronavirus disease 2019—Historical context, virology, pathogenesis, immunotherapy, and vaccine development

The current Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is causing great alarm around the world. The pathogen for COVID-19 – severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)

RNA has been increasingly recognized as the central molecule in all life with new functions uncovered by the year. With the unfolding of the Covid-19 pandemic, RNA has forcefully entered the field of biomedicine. RNA-based Covid-19 vaccines were spectacularly successful in helping to bring the pandemic under control, thus providing further impetus to developing additional RNA vaccines for both infectious diseases and cancer

Hepatitis B vaccine development and implementation

Vaccination against hepatitis B is the most effective strategy to control HBV infection. The first licensed hepatitis B vaccine was developed by the purification of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) from plasma of asymptomatic HBsAg carriers. Then, the recombinant

In 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) named A. baumannii as one of the three antibiotic-resistant bacterial species on its list of global priority pathogens in dire need of novel and effective treatment. With only polymyxin and tigecycline antibiotics left as last-resort treatments, the need for novel alternative approaches to the control of this bacterium becomes imperative.

Invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella (iNTS) infections are a leading cause of bacteremia in Sub-Saharan Africa (sSA), thereby representing a major public health threat. Salmonella Typhimurium clade ST313 and Salmonella Enteriditis lineages associated with Western and Central/Eastern Africa are among the iNTS serovars which are of the greatest concern due to their case-fatality rate, especially in children and in the immunocompromised population.

African swine fever (ASF) is a lethal and highly contagious viral disease of domestic and wild pigs, listed as a notifiable disease reported to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). Despite its limited host range and absent zoonotic potential, the socio-economic and environmental impact of ASF is very high, representing a serious threat to the global swine industry and the many stakeholders involved.

There are currently no effective treatments for Methamphetamine (METH) addiction and psychotherapy remains the sole treatment option. The development of immunopharmacotherapies for the treatment of drug addiction, overdose, and relapse management appears to be promising alternative and a significant body of information has been generated using various vaccine development strategies.

Vaccines are a major achievement in medical sciences, but the development of more effective vaccines against infectious diseases is essential for prevention and control of emerging pathogens worldwide. The application of omics technologies has advanced vaccinology through the characterization of host-vector-pathogen molecular interactions and the identification of candidate protective antigens.

Pride Month 2023 is here! To celebrate Pride Month, we have conducted a series of interviews with researchers, scholars, PhD students, librarians, and writers to provide a platform for those in the academic and LGBTQIA+ community to share their stories and experiences as part of both communities. We’ve also put together a collection of articles and journals for you to read, free of charge, until the end of the year!
