LIAI scientists make important finding on cytomegalovirus transmission

...ruses," Ware said. "I think both of these studies lend credibility to the idea that the medical community should be looking at IL-10 as a molecular candidate that might be used to control persistent viral infections." Ware and Croft’s next step will be conducting animal studies with the IL-10 suppress...

In particular, the two studies lend weight to guidance that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released on the use of nonpharmaceutical interventions during a pandemic ( http://www.pandemicflu.gov/plan/community/mitigation.html ), which recommends precisely such a ...

Nanotechnology meets biology and DNA finds its groove

...is comprehensive, inexpensive and simple enough to lend itself to large-scale efforts to analyze DNA. "It's a simple technology that works, and that's demonstrated to work for genome analysis," says de Pablo. "It's a very robust method that can be used in a variety of settings." In addition to Schwa...
