HIV vaccine trial breaks ground for future research

...heir follow-up visits. During analysis of various subgroups 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 ...

The cytotoxicity of undecorated SWNTs was 200 parts per billion, which compares to the level of 20 parts per billion identified last year for undecorated buckyballs. The modified nanotubes were ...

Study outlines genetic differences between potential pandemic influenza strains

...rganization has further classified genotype Z into subgroups called clades. In 2003 and 2004, clade 1 viruses were primarily responsible for outbreaks, including all infections in human, in Viet Nam, Cambodia and Thailand. In 2005 a second strain of H5N1 began causing disease in humans in Indonesia. Analys...

Genome changes tracked during multiple myeloma initiation, progression and treatment

...ification and deletion patterns define new disease subgroups of MM that are characterized by varied dysregulation of distinct cancer-relevant genes and can be correlated with different clinical outcomes. Importantly, several candidate genes identified in this study possess broad clinical and biological relevan...

The authors found that there are subgroups within a high-risk population in which patterns of risks like unprotected sex, mental health crises and substance abuse exist at the same time, and also vary by gender. “This study tells us that not all risky adolescents have the same risk behavior...

Technology for monitoring fetal oxygen during labor offers no apparent benefit

... researchers also compared Caesarean rates for two subgroups in the study, babies experiencing a disturbance in fetal heart rate and women experiencing dystocia. Again, the use of fetal oxygen saturation monitoring produced no statistically meaningful difference in Caesarean delivery for infants with a distur...

Older men treated for early prostate cancer live longer than those who are not

...This benefit was also seen across the board in all subgroups examined, including African-American men and older men aged 75-80 at diagnosis," added Armstrong. "However, as we summarized in the study, because observational data can never completely adjust for potential selection bias and confounding, our result...
