    Synergy in anti-malarial pre-erythrocytic and transmission-blocking antibodies is achieved by reducing parasite density

    Ellie Sherrard-Smith et al.
    Combining pre-erythrocytic and transmission blocking antibodies enhances the overall control and potential elimination of malaria within both mosquito and vertebrate populations.

    A live attenuated-vaccine model confers cross-protective immunity against different species of the Leptospira genus

    Elsio A Wunder et al.
    A single dose of a characterized motility-deficient mutant was sufficient to induce robust anti-protein antibodies' response and cross-protective immunity against death and colonization in two different animal models of leptospirosis.

    Estimates of the global burden of Japanese encephalitis and the impact of vaccination from 2000-2015

    Tran Minh Quan et al.
    Modelling analysis reveals the burden of Japanese Encephalitis is greater than previously thought, and although vaccination has reduced burden, there are remaining places with a great need for vaccination.

    Opportunities for improved surveillance and control of dengue from age-specific case data

    Isabel Rodriguez-Barraquer et al.
    Age-specific incidence data, combined with mechanistic models of immunity, provides a unique opportunity to characterize disease transmission of dengue and other immunizing diseases at high temporal and spatial resolution.

    The intractable challenge of evaluating cattle vaccination as a control for bovine Tuberculosis

    Andrew James Kerr Conlan et al.
    Natural transmission experiments should be prioritised over risky and expensive field trials, in order to establish the impact of cattle vaccination on the transmission of bovine Tuberculosis.

    Pre-complexation of talin and vinculin without tension is required for efficient nascent adhesion maturation

    Sangyoon J Han et al.
    Pre-complexation of vinculin with talin’s R8 domain facilitates nascent adhesion maturation by unfolding talin, increasing vinculin binding, and thereby transmitting traction forces to the environment.
