Influenza, a respiratory disease caused by influenza viruses, still represents a major threat to humans and several animal species. Besides vaccination, only two classes of drugs are available for antiviral treatment against this pathogen. Thus, there is a strong need for new effective antivirals against influenza viruses. Here, we tested Ladania067, an(More)
Influenza A virus (IAV) infection is often followed by secondary bacterial lung infection, which is a major reason for severe, often fatal pneumonia. Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) strains such as USA300 cause particularly severe and difficult-to-treat cases of IAV-associated pneumonia. CA-MRSA strains are known(More)
MEK inhibitors are very potent and promising compounds in cancer therapy. Earlier investigations have demonstrated that they also possess antiviral properties against influenza virus. This is due to the fact that activation of the Raf/MEK/ERK signaling pathway is a prerequisite for influenza virus replication. As an alternative to vaccination, antiviral(More)
Current influenza virus vaccines aim to elicit antibodies directed toward viral surface glycoproteins, which however are prone to antigenic drift. Cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) can exhibit heterosubtypic immunity against most influenza A viruses. In our study, we encapsulated the highly conserved, immunodominant, HLA-A*0201 restricted epitope from the(More)
