How sneaky HIV escapes cells

...lls make HIV and other retroviruses by a naturally occurring export mechanism,” says Stephen Gould, Ph.D., Professor of Biological Chemistry at Johns Hopkins. Cells normally export certain membrane-bound molecules to the outside world by means of small sacs known as exosomes. By studying human T-cells under a ...

New study reports hotel guests at risk from carbon monoxide poisoning

...the researchers found 68 incidents of CO poisoning occurring at hotels, motels, and resorts between 1989 and 2004.
