Researchers found that in order to spread from cell to cell, Listeria disguises itself as cellular garbage so that other cells will eat it. Once inside the neighbouring cell, Listeria removes its disguise, releases its toxin and can freely replicate inside the cell.
The Hospital for Sick Children along with Cisco Canada and RBC Foundation announced the launch of Connected North, a program which aims to enhance children’s mental health services in northern Canada.
