New vaccine prevents CMV infection and disease in mice

...rth defects and a serious problem in patients with compromised immune systems. The body’s natural immunity doesn’t protect against infection by the virus, estimated to be present in 50 to 75 percent of all adults. “Until now, scientists haven’t been able to develop a vaccine to protect against CMV,” said D...

Dinosaur hearing, listening to muscle noise, quieter cubicles

...ry quiet of many backcountry sites is increasingly compromised by aircraft noise. In order to fulfill their mandate to protect natural, cultural, and historic resources, as well as visitor experience, NPS has developed analytical tools to assess lost opportunities to hear and respond to the sounds of nature.

Scientists identify pancreatic cancer stem cells

...ed during patient surgery in "xenograft" mice with compromised immune systems. Researchers removed tumors after they grew, and then sorted millions of cancer cells to isolate those that had one or more of three surface protein markers -- CD44, CD24, and ESA. They chose these markers, called cell adhesion molecu...

Tracking sperm whales and jumbo squid

... whales may favor jumbo squid that are in some way compromised and thus easier to capture," the authors wrote. "This research provided a unique opportunity to learn more about two species that are very difficult to study in their natural habitat," Davis noted.

Stanford discovery may help predict when toxoplasma can be deadly

...t can cause severe infections in individuals with compromised immune systems. In addition, women infected for the first time while pregnant can pass the organism to their fetuses, potentially resulting in sight and hearing problems as well as learning disabilities. The new findings have implications for det...

Dragonfly's metabolic disease provides clues about human obesity

.... Another clue is that some AIDS patients, with compromised immune systems, have chronic problems with Cryptosporidium (a protozoan parasite closely related to the one found in dragonflies) that over time impairs their metabolism in a similar fashion to what Schilder and Marden found for infected dragonflies....
