Genomic Analysis Uncovers New Targets for HIV Vaccine

...nd B, HLA-C may represent an Achilles heel of HIV, according to Goldstein, who said that a vaccine could be designed to elicit an HLA-C mediated response which HIV-1 might be unable to defuse. "This study was the first time a genome-wide approach has been used for an infectious disease," Goldstein said. "Past...

Scratch no more: Gene for itch sensation discovered

...ch sensation without affecting the pain sensation, according to Chen. And because pain can be an important protective cue that warns of danger, it may be a distinct advantage to have an anti-itch medication that doesn't compromise our pain-sensing capability. GRPR had been fairly well studied before, but no o...
