The agreement enables us to perform these studies at an acceptable cost and we will also get access to new technology at an early stage. Our expectation is that this cooperation will help us to improve peoples healt...

A new study examines how shared pathogens affect host populations

...ies transmission is often associated with pathogen emergence and therefore has been considered as a negative factor for humans, wildlife, and species of agricultural importance. Many pathogens like malaria, Lyme disease or West Nile encephalitis that infect multiple hosts are commonly transmitted by vectors, a...

Emergence of cancer as major cause of childhood death in developing countries is not being adequately addressed

Antiretroviral Therapy May Prevent HIV Transmission From Breastfeeding Mothers To Infants

... rash, neutropenia, and anemia, and to lead to the emergence of drug-resistant virus. For the second study, the researchers examined the ability of combination antiretroviral therapy to reduce HIV-1 RNA and DNA levels in breast milk. They measured these levels in two groups: 26 women who received nevirapine, ...

Map of life on Earth could be used on Mars
