Bacteria in Household Dust May Trigger Asthma Symptoms

...cation use, and wheezing. These relationships were strongest for bedroom floor and bedding dust. Households with higher endotoxin concentrations experienced higher prevalence of respiratory symptoms. Endotoxins are found in the cell wall of bacteria and are only released when bacteria ruptures or disintegrate...

Agricultural workers at increased risk for infection with animal flu viruses

...s compared with the control group. Farmers had the strongest indication of exposure to swine flu viruses, as much as 35 times higher than the control group. Similarly, comparable values were as much as 18 times higher for veterinarians and as much as 7 times higher for meat processors than the control group. I...

Past illegal blood donation in China linked to hepatitis C virus infection

... 3% in non-donors. Selling blood or plasma was the strongest independent predictor for HCV-positive findings. Receiving a blood transfusion was also independently associated with HCV; villagers who received blood transfusion had about 8 times the risk of HCV infection than those who had no history of blood tra...

Scientists observe how a close bond activates the immune system

...gues discovered that the T cell receptor signal is strongest when they are physically held in the outer ring of the bull's eye rather than the center. "We locked the receptors in the periphery and saw enhanced signaling over a prolonged period of time. It was quite a surprise," says Dr. Dustin. Researchers h...

Team led by Carnegie Mellon University scientist finds first evidence of a living memory trace

...like a fingerprint that disappears over time. It's strongest after the honeybee's initial exposure to an odor, but you can still detect its signature features minutes afterwards," said Galán. A future question that could be addressed using this research is addressing how short-term memory gets encoded as lon...
