Elusive HIV shape change revealed; Key clue to how virus infects cells
...ngs may help pin down how these compounds work and hasten
their development into drugs. "The findings also will help us understand why it's so hard to make an HIV vaccine, and will help us start strategizing about new approaches to vaccine development." The studies, performed in the Children's Hospital Bos...
Researchers extend mouse lifespan by protecting against free radicals
... believe that free radicals could contribute to or hasten
heart disease, cancer, and other age-related diseases. The theory also suggests that if the body could be protected from those free radicals, then age-related diseases could be tamed and organisms ?and ultimately people ?may be able to live longer. ...
