Key to hepatitis virus persistence found

...iral protease-regulated control of IRF-3 opens new avenues in both clinical and basic research on hepatitis C, notes Dr. Gale. Until now, scientists had not considered the possibility that inhibiting this protease did anything more than halt viral replication. "Now that we know NS3/4A inhibition essentially ...

Researchers determine fundamental mechanisms involved in immune response

...erlying the immune response, it also generates new avenues for understanding the genetic dislocations that can potentially initiate some forms of cancer. "The AID enzyme can be extremely dangerous," says Alt. "It could potentially mutate or recombine any gene." Were it to do so, it could contribute to genomi...
