Consuming good bacteria (Probiotic) may eliminate bad microbes: Probiotic Lactobacillus Rhamnosus-based antiviral therapy for chikungunya (CHIKV) and Zika (ZIKV) viruses: Probiotic Lactobacillus Rhamnosus increases spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SAT) expression, depletes spermidine and Spermine levels, and restricts Chikungunya and Zika viruses replication via upregulation of its target gene, 23/September/2018, 1.46 pm

An aspirin a day keeps HIV1-infections at bay: Aspirin, an analgesic/antipyretic drug, increases Heme oxygenase 2 (HO-2) expression, blocks N-myristoylation of HIV-1 Gag protein, disrupts HIV-1 budding, and restricts HIV-1 production via upregulation of its target gene, 13/August/2018, 6.28 pm

What we say: Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: An aspirin a day keeps HIV1-infections at bay: Aspirin, an analgesic/antipyretic drug, increases Heme […]
