  1. Almost 400 medical practices found ineffective in analysis of 3,000 studies

    New research could help eliminate medical practices that are no more effective than existing standards of care, reducing costs for patients and practitioners.
  2. How proteins help influenza A bind and slice its way to cells

    New study adds to our understanding of how influenza A effectively overcomes the first line of our defence against infection.
  3. Traces of crawling in Italian cave give clues to ancient humans’ social behaviour

    Using multiple methods of analysis, researchers have identified the movements of a group of humans as they explored an Italian cave system during the late Stone Age.
  4. Eye’s vulnerability to macular degeneration revealed

    Differences in the shape and biology of nerve cells in the retina and macula reveal a metabolic response critical to the eye’s defence against disease.
  5. Media Coverage: April roundup of eLife papers in the news

    High-profile news coverage that eLife papers generated in April 2019, including Xinhua, The Scientist and Nature.
  6. Scientists develop new model to describe how bacteria spread in different forms

    A unifying theory describing how bacteria spread in the form of swarms and biofilms adds to our understanding of the behaviour of microbial communities.
  7. Evolving alongside viruses impacts susceptibility to future infections

    Studies suggest that fruit flies which have co-evolved with viruses have greater genetic variation underlying their susceptibility to future infections.
  8. Mass drug administrations can grant population protection against malaria

    New study suggests administering antimalarial drugs to entire populations could help reduce infection so even untreated individuals are protected, but more must be done to ensure sufficient take up.
  9. Media Coverage: March roundup of eLife papers in the news

    High-profile news coverage that eLife papers generated in March 2019, including The Atlantic, Nature and United Press International.
  10. Combine data to improve malaria tracking, say scientists

    New studies suggest combining data around parasite genetics and human movement can improve malaria transmission mapping, and help with efforts to eliminate the disease in Southern Africa, Bangladesh and other areas.
