    Effective control of SARS-CoV-2 transmission between healthcare workers during a period of diminished community prevalence of COVID-19

    Nick K Jones et al.
    Diminished incidence of COVID-19 amongst healthcare workers in a comprehensive screening programme demonstrates how effective infection control measures and staff testing can prevent hospitals becoming independent 'hubs' of SARS-CoV-2 transmission.

    IRF4 haploinsufficiency in a family with Whipple’s disease

    Antoine Guérin et al.
    Autosomal dominant IRF4 deficiency is the first genetic etiology of Whipple's disease, a very rare chronic condition following a rather common infection by Tropheryma whipplei.

    Nationally-representative serostudy of dengue in Bangladesh allows generalizable disease burden estimates

    Henrik Salje et al.
    To maximize broad insight on disease burden, seroprevalence studies should be generalizable to the wider population, both in age and location.

    HIV-1 DNA predicts disease progression and post-treatment virological control

    James P Williams et al.
    Measuring HIV-1 DNA levels at the time of stopping antiretroviral therapy (when initiated during primary infection) predicts clinical progression and the time taken for plasma viraemia to become detectable.

    A sustained type I IFN-neutrophil-IL-18 axis drives pathology during mucosal viral infection

    Tania Lebratti et al.
    Type I IFN is a key determinant of pathogenic neutrophil activity and drives tissue pathology through modulation of IL-18 levels during genital HSV infection.

    Panton–Valentine leucocidin is the key determinant of Staphylococcus aureus pyomyositis in a bacterial GWAS

    Bernadette C Young et al.
    Genome-wide association studies have established staphylococcal pyomyositis as a disease whose pathogenesis depends critically on expression of a single toxin, Panton–Valentine leukocidin.

    Contributions of mast cells and vasoactive products, leukotrienes and chymase, to dengue virus-induced vascular leakage

    Ashley L St John et al.
    Proteins produced by mast cells modulate the permeability of blood vessels, and may determine whether patients infected with dengue virus develop life-threatening complications.

    Circulating T cell-monocyte complexes are markers of immune perturbations

    Julie G Burel et al.
    Human blood contains T cell-monocyte complexes which are not technical artefacts but reflect true in vivo immune cell interactions.

    Characterisation of the opposing effects of G6PD deficiency on cerebral malaria and severe malarial anaemia

    Geraldine M Clarke et al.
    Increasing levels of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency are associated with decreasing risk of cerebral malaria, but with increased risk of severe malarial anaemia.

    Inducible mechanisms of disease tolerance provide an alternative strategy of acquired immunity to malaria

    Wiebke Nahrendorf et al.
    Malaria remodels the spleen to imprint tolerance and reduce pathology in subsequent infections.
