Latest Research : Infectious Diseases : SARS

Latest Research : Infectious Diseases : SARS
A Macaque Model of SARS
The 2002 SARS outbreak that started in China spread quickly to Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, and Canada. Although the 774 people it killed was a small number compared with the global death toll from other infectious diseases, the outbreak caused widespread panic because of the lack of global preparedness for what could have become a worldwide epidemic. Since then, surveillance and monitoring systems have been put into place and existing ones strengthened, but since another outbreak is always possible, researchers around the globe are still devoting much time to studying the infection. Analyzing the disease in animals to investigate the pathogenesis of the novel coronavirus that causes SARS (SARS-CoV) is crucial to developing vaccines and treatments to tackle the next epidemic.

Benzotriazole Esters Based Enzyme inhibitors block replication of SARS virus
The study was conducted by researchers from Scripps Research; the Genomics Research Center, Academia Sinica, Taiwan; and the National Taiwan University. It is being published today in the journal Chemistry and Biology (Vol. 13, No. 3). Chi-Huey Wong is currently the Ernest W. Hahn Chair in Chemistry at the Skaggs Institute of Chemical Biology and directs the Scripps Research lab heading the study. He said the new finding is an important step in developing a possible drug treatment against SARS.
