Palvimo and colleagues demonstrate that SUMOylation of chromatin-bound proteins represses heat shock-induced gene transcription
Jennifer Gardy, Nick Loman and Andrew Rambaut's call to arms: new technologies should be better used to aid public health surveillance
Evidence from a systematic review suggests that perceptions of generic medicines have improved, and acceptance is greater in those with higher levels of education, suggesting that provision of information is necessary to promote acceptance of these drugs.
In a mathematical model, the RTS,S/AS01 malaria vaccine is predicted to provide high initial efficacy but declining protection over time in 11 African sites, suggesting that adding RTS,S should be added to existing malaria control programs to reduce deaths.
The production of interferons that provide the first line of defence against viruses is activated by elaborate little cytoplasmic machines containing ATP-driven helicases that can distinguish viral double-stranded RNA from double-stranded RNA segments of host origin. Denis Gerlier and colleagues shed new light on how this exquisite sensitivity is achieved
Troponin I concentration at hospital admission and after 3 hours identifies acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation, suggesting that measuring troponin kinetics could provide useful diagnostic information.
In a meta-analysis, the Pima CD4 analyzer is sensitive at 350 and 500cells/µl thresholds using capillary and venous derived samples respectively, adding to evidence regarding its use in point-of-care testing for antiretroviral therapy (ART) eligibility.
In this forum article, specialists working in malaria research, control and treatment discuss ways in which the disease could be eradicated, explaining how multi-disciplinary and collaborative processes are needed to make eradication a reality.
A clinical omics analysis pipeline using the Workflow Instance Generation and Specialization (WINGS) semantic workflow platform demonstrates transparency, reproducibility and analytical validity.
Iain Frame and Sarah Cant from Prostate Cancer UK answer our questions about the current challenges in prostate cancer research and policy, and how these are being addressed.

Research Involvement and Engagement has published its first articles.
The new co-produced journal is both innovative and interdisciplinary. It is a health and social care journal that focuses on patient and wider involvement and engagement in research, at all stages.
All articles within the journal will be reviewed by both academics and patients, with both reports carrying equal weight in the editorial decision. The journal is led by two Editors-in-Chief –Sophie Staniszewska, PPI lead at RCN Research Institute, University of Warwick, UK, and Richard Stephens, an involved and engaged patient from the UK.
Read a fantastic piece on patient’s and clinicians’ priorities for research by Iain Chalmers and Sally Crowe.
Hereditas is now accepting submissions.
The journal was founded in 1920, hence it is one of the oldest journals in the field. It is the official publication of The Mendelian Society of Lund and transferred to BioMed Central this year.
