VIRUS EVOLUTION

Predicting naturally occurring viral latency

KLRD1-expressing natural killer cells predict influenza susceptibility We identified KLRD1-expressing NK cells as a potential biomarker for influenza susceptibility. Expression of KLRD1 was inversely correlated with symptom severity. Our results support a model where an early response by KLRD1-expressing NK cells may control influenza infection. The NK cells are natural killer cells that help to control viral latency This was reported as: Scientists discover biomarker for flu susceptibility  “We found that a type of immune cell called a natural killer…

BiondVax Universal Flu Vaccine Patent

Summary: …the dream to create an effective universal flu vaccine to ultimately eradicate the flu is placed into the context of claims about changes to the virus. The changes are energy-dependent ecological adaptations. No one claims that the virus mutates or that it evolves. Only biologically uninformed theorists make such ridiculous claims. BiondVax Universal Flu Vaccine Patent Granted in India The patent describes influenza vaccines comprised of multiple copies of several epitopes, such as M-001 which contains nine common and…

The MicroRNAome Strikes Back: A Sokalian hoax (8)

Defeating Diseases with Energy (January 9, 2018) is a thinly disguised attempt to help corporate giants continue to promote ridiculous neo-Darwinian theories. It features the works of Douglas C. Wallace, who failed to link the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA to all pathology since he published: Neoplastic transformation is associated with coordinate induction of nuclear and cytoplasmic oxidative phosphorylation genes (1990). Similar analysis of a cervical carcinoma (HeLa), fibrosarcoma (HT1080), and an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-transformed lymphoblastoid line (EBV-L) revealed that…

Reporting new scientific truths is not allowed in the USA

Summary: If we keep training serious scientists in the United States but force them to return to their homeland to report new scientific truths, our Homeland Security will suffer from the ignorance of pseudoscientists who are still touting ridiculous claims about mutations and evolution. A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. Every…

Ricki Lewis’ Time Machine (4)

Variants near CHRNA3/5 and APOE have age- and sex-related effects on human lifespan Excerpt: The signal we observe is driven by rs429358, a non-synonymous Cys112Arg variant, which defines the ε4 allele and which has not previously been shown to be the causal variant influencing lifespan. See also: Gorilla Genome 2.0: Lessons for the Clinic? Excerpt: VARIANTS OF UNCERTAIN SIGNIFICANCE With phrases such as “settled science” and “scientific proof” part of the lexicon, it’s little wonder that health care consumers expect…

Hijacked light energy and vertebrate pathology

The spectrum of the sun Excerpt: Here are all the visible colors of the Sun, produced by passing the Sun’s light through a prism-like device. … Since different types of gas absorb different colors of light, it is possible to determine what gasses compose the Sun. Helium, for example, was first discovered in 1870 on a solar spectrum and only later found here on Earth. Today, the majority of spectral absorption lines have been identified — but not all. Most…
