Mosquito bite sites are not just itchy, irritating nuisances -- they also make viral infections spread by the insects far worse, new research has found.
The study, led by the University of Leeds, found that inflammation where the insect has bitten not only helps a virus such as Zika or dengue establish an infection in the body more quickly, but that it also helps it to spread around the body, increasing the likelihood of severe illness.
"Mosquito bites are not just annoying -- they are key for how these viruses spread around your body and cause disease,"... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
"And sure enough, when we stopped these immune cells coming in, the bite did not enhance the infection anymore."
Despite the enormous disease burden of mosquito-borne viral infections -- they are responsible for hundreds of millions of cases across the world -- there are few specific therapies or vaccines.
"This research could be the first step in repurposing commonly available anti-inflammatory drugs to treat bite inflammation before any symptoms set in," said Dr McKimmie, whose study was funded by the Medical Research Council.

I know this might not be common knowledge in undeveloped countries that don't have science classes. But is this really news to anyone in a modernized country? It's not like tribals are going to look this study up next time they visit the library.
If you touch a part of your body that might have a communicable disease, and then touch something else, you have possibly contaminated that object or person.
>>52568 This study is not about spreading disease to other people. Instead they look at how inflammation helps spread viruses to the rest of your body quicker and more effectively by infecting immune cells.
>>51175 They always say this of the candidate that's about to win. There's always "trouble ahead" with everything. Our education, the financial/housing/job markets, the environment, the next olympics, the elections. Everything is always doomed one way or another according to the media and it never really is.

>>50764 Obviously theres not going to be a single candidate supporting pro-gun legislation after orlando, it would be political suicide. The NRA was just hoping that something bad enough as orlando wouldn't happen (and its the worst shooting yet so you can't really blaim them), and that they would always be able to lobby a candidate in their favor. Now even if they offered a candidate a billion dollars in campaign finance they wouldn't take it.
>>50764 I think the NRA's point is that we have an overpopulation problem in this country. Arming every man, woman, and child would help to cull the herd and thus to maintain a more sustainable ecological footprint.
The Supreme Court on Monday empowered police to stop people on the streets and question them, even when it is not clear they have done anything wrong.
In a 5-3 ruling, the Supreme Court relaxed the so-called exclusionary rule and upheld the use of drug evidence found on a Utah man who was stopped illegally by an officer in Salt Lake City.
The Supreme Court first adopted the exclusionary rule for federal cases in 1914, but greatly expanded its reach in 1961 by applying the rule to state and local police. The rule generally requires judges to throw out evidence if... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
