The effects were highly statistically significant (p "An inflammatory responses could potentially increase susceptibility to HIV and limit any protective effect of microbicides." said Betsy Herold, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Chief of Pediatric Infectious Disease at Mount Sinai and ...

Neuronal 'traffic jam' marks early Alzheimer's disease

...stein. "We found in the early cases a very strong, statistically meaningful swelling in the neurons." The researchers tested whether they could enhance the pathology they observed in the mice and humans by reducing the levels of a key transport protein, kinesin-1, the cell's principal molecular motor for transpor...

Noting that previous attempts to linkKawasaki disease to bacteria or other viruses had failed and thusjustified healthy skepticism about the present findings, Dr. McIntoshpoint...

HIV vaccine trial breaks ground for future research

...ubgroups of the study population, a higher, though statistically insignificant, vaccine efficacy was found in the high-risk and the non-white groups. The authors suggested two plausible explanations, one for each group. Those with high-risk behavior may have been exposed frequently to HIV and a primed immune respo...

Antiretroviral Therapy May Prevent HIV Transmission From Breastfeeding Mothers To Infants

...of the women not taking therapy. This represents a statistically significant difference. However, there was no such difference for HIV-1 DNA, which some studies suggest also contributes to mother-to-child transmission. One possible explanation for this lack of association between antiretroviral therapy and HIV DN...

Circulating stem cells play small role in lung repair

They also found a statistically significant relationship between the number of Y chromosome-containing pneumocytes and the incidence of acute cellular rejection in the tissue, suggesting that stem cell repopulation might be stimulated by greater degrees of injury to the lung.

Study casts doubt on 'Snowball Earth' theory

...heet ice during the pre-Cambrian glaciation. It is statistically unlikely but possible, Olcott said, that the drill core found one of the tiny "refugia" for marine life whose existence is allowed under the "Snowball Earth" hypothesis. But, she said, "finding the one anomalous spot would be quite unlikely," adding...
