9th Influenza Conference 2023
The Ninth ESWI Influenza Conference: Highlights
ESWI 2023: 10 key take home messages
Australian discovery of change in ‘killer T cells’ could help fight against influenza
Research led by Dr Carolien van de Sandt, a senior research fellow at the Doherty Institute and 2023 Claude Hannoun Prize, and UNSW Sydney shows that cells are replaced as we get older by ones less able to read threat from infections
Newborn and child-like molecular signatures in older adults stem from TCR shifts across human lifespan
CD8+ T cells provide robust antiviral immunity, but how epitope-specific T cells evolve across the human lifespan is unclear.
International scientific community gathers in Valencia for the 9th ESWI Conference on Influenza, COVID-19, and RSV
Since it was established 30 years ago, the European Scientific Working Group on Influenza and other Acute Respiratory Viruses (ESWI) is hosting the 9TH ESWI Influenza Conference
Guidance for Developing a Sustainable Multistakeholder Immunization Coalition
Insights from immunization coalition experts and analysis of successful immunization coalitions
Co-evolution of immunity and seasonal influenza viruses
Seasonal influenza viruses cause recurring global epidemics by continually evolving to escape host immunity. The viral constraints and host immune responses that limit and drive the evolution of these viruses are increasingly well understood.
Cotransfer of antigen and contextual information harmonizes peripheral and lymph node conventional dendritic cell activation
T cell responses against infections and cancer are directed by conventional dendritic cells (cDCs) in lymph nodes distant from the site of challenge.
The Path Towards Effective Respiratory Syncytial Virus Immunization Policies: Recommended Actions
RSV causes a substantial burden worldwide. After over six decades of research, there is finally a licensed immunization option that can protect the broad infant population, and other will follow soon.
Algorithm for Optimised mRNA Design Improves Stability and Immunogenicity
mRNA vaccines are being used to contain COVID-19, but still suffer from the critical limitation of mRNA instability and degradation, which is a major obstacle in the storage, distribution, and efficacy of the vaccine products.
ECDC on Air podcast: The solidarity of Vaccination
European Immunization Week is marked across Europe every year in the final week of April. It aims to raise awareness of the importance of immunisation for the general health and well-being of the European and wider population.
Respiratory syncytial virus infection during infancy and asthma during childhood in the USA (INSPIRE): a population-based, prospective birth cohort study
Early-life severe RSV infection has been associated with the onset of childhood wheezing illnesses. However, the relationship between RSV infection during infancy and the development of childhood asthma is unclear.
United in Protection: vaccination is a show of solidarity!
Ahead of European Immunisation Week (EIW), taking place from 23 to 29 April 2023, Isabel de la Mata -principal advisor for Health and Crisis Management at the European Commission- talks about the benefits of lifelong vaccination
