This reactivation of the virus boosts the number of cells infected thereby increasing the chances that the cells will become cancerous. The USF team, led by virologist Peter Medveczky, MD, found that this sudden reactivation was prevent...

Scientists find nanowires capable of detecting individual viruses

A probable cause for high blood pressure identified - shows links with diabetes

We also found that excessive accumulation of this molecule in the pancreas will impair insulin release, thus it is possible that this molecule is the long searched for link between these two disorders." The res...
