"Our technique for identifying activated ATM is so sensitive that we've been able to show that it takes only a couple of break...

Antibodies critical for fighting West Nile Virus infection

...his is just speculation that humans who have weak antibody responses early during infection are more likely to develop serious disease," says Diamond. "Those are the people we'd want to target when a vaccine or treatment becomes available." Diamond and his colleagues now are studying how antibodies control i...
