The Bisonvaleus browni fossil was the first time they had seen teeth like this preserved within an intact upper and lower jaw, which is extremely ...

Live Recombinant Adenovirus Vaccine Technique Explored

...esearchers developed their vaccine prototype using canine oral papillomavirus (COPV), which behaves similarly to HPV. Research by other scientists showed that a vaccine consisting of recombinant HPV major capsid protein (L1) provides effective immunity to HPV infection. Dr. Ketner and his colleagues theoriz...
