Understanding and Targeting Host Factors in HIV, TB and Other Infections

07 Oct 2015 - 10 Oct 2015 - Parador de Oropesa, Spain

We are proud to announce the 1st Zing Understanding and Targeting Host Factors in HIV, TB and Other Infections Conference will take place in October 2015 at the Parador Oropesa.

Pathogens have been a major force in the evolution of human immunity. This conference will focus on the evolution and function of host genes that control the major human pathogens, HIV and TB, as well as other infections. Sessions will explore how host mechanisms have been targeted by pathogens to influence susceptibility or resistance of humans to these infections and they will investigate how pathogens hijack host factors to survive and propagate. Treatments that target host-pathogen interactions will also be discussed.

Universal truths – how existing antibodies are sabotaging the most promising new human flu vaccines.
Antibody Drug Shows Promise in HIV Treatment
Researchers are a step closer to an alternative HIV treatment that has the potential for lasting effects and less frequent dosing.
Targeting Autoimmunity
Researchers have developed a strategy to treat a rare autoimmune disease which could lead to treatments of other autoimmune diseases.
Flu Vaccine May Reduce Death Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
New research suggests that a new flu vaccine may reduce probability of type 2 diabetes patients being hospitalised with stroke and heart failure.
Gut Bacteria Older than Human Species
Some bacteria have lived in the human gut since before we were human, suggesting evolution could have a larger role inhuman bacterial makeup.
Evidence of Mosquito Transmitting Zika
A direct link between the Yellow fever mosquito and Zika transmission has been found following investigation into selective mosquito control.

New antibody-based drug paves the way for new strategies for controlling and treating multiple sclerosis.
Three-Drug Combinations Counter Antibiotic Resistance
Research shows that combinations of three different antibiotics can treat resistant bacteria, even if they are ineffective independently.
Mapping Zika’s Routes to Developing Fetus
UC researchers show how Zika virus travels from a pregnant woman to her fetus, and also identified a drug that could stop it.
Treating HIV with Cancer-Fighting Gene Shows Promise
A type of gene immunotherapy that has shown promising results against cancer could also be used against HIV.
