Experimental smallpox vaccine protects against monkeypox in nonhuman primates

...ne, have shown that MVA elicits an immune response comparable to that of Dryvax in a monkeypox model of human disease. In addition, MVA protected nonhuman primates exposed to lethal doses of the monkeypox virus. The study, published in the March 11th issue of the journal NATURE, is a collaborative effort invol...

...'s rPA102 at the higher doses (50 g and 75 g) were comparable to that of AVA, despite a 10-fold greater amount of aluminum adjuvant, an immune stimulant, in AVA. There was a clear relationship between the amount of rPA102 administered and the subsequent immune response, with antibody titers continuing to increa...

Dirty air from Asia can push U.S. air pollution to unhealthy levels

...k sites dating back to the mid-1980s show just one comparable event, in 1998. Asian pollution comes across on winds pulled by a sort of high-speed conveyor belt, with a low-pressure system over the Aleutian Islands and a high-pressure cell near Hawaii acting like twin gears that propel the air mass. Various fo...

For each group, the researchers performed physical examinations and recorded clinical history, sexual maturity rating, and blood levels of various hormones. The study found a higher prevalence...

Marine scientists discover nutrient pollution boosts fungi, bacteria killing Caribbean reefs

...ing," Bruno said. "We did what we thought would be comparable to what is happening in the Caribbean." Sea fans are the colorful, fragile-looking, plant-like animals that divers and snorkelers see waving gracefully back and forth in 10 to 20 feet of water, he said. The aspergillosis that kills them is common in ...

Marine pathogens spread much faster than their terrestrial counterparts

...arine epidemics spread about 100 times faster than comparable terrestrial epidemics. The factors behind this large difference in rates of spread are not clear at present, but may relate to the lack of barriers to pathogen dispersal in marine environments, or to better long term survival of mobile infectious sta...

Over land, sea and air, users give MERIS high marks

Formed from individually microscopic phytoplankton, algae blooms occur when favourable local conditions encourage their growth to 'bloom' out of control. Some algae species contain toxins that can poison huma...

Male flesh flies high-speed pursuit of females

...e fly's high speed, they put that information into comparable human terms. To equal the relative speed of a male flesh fly, a man would have to run at the supersonic speed of Mach 1.2, or at about half the maximum speed of an F-15 Eagle aircraft. In relative speed to the fly, the F-15 Eagle aircraft itself w...

World's most alkaline life forms found near Chicago

... reach extraordinary alkalinity of pH 12.8. That's comparable to caustic soda and floor strippers -- far beyond known naturally occurring alkaline environments. The closest known relatives of some of the microbes are in South Africa, Greenland and the alkaline waters of Mono Lake, California. "Other alkaline c...

Variants of BMP2 gene as genetic risk factors for osteoporosis

...low BMD and one with osteoporotic fractures--found comparable results, with a higher incidence of the BMP2 variants associated with osteoporosis in Iceland in the affected Danish women compared to the controls. Taken together, these results make a strong case for genetic variations of BMP2 as risk factors for...

Premature babies benefit from breast milk, study says

New method could aid in prostate and breast cancer diagnosis

...the research team, "but we haven't had anything of comparable sensitivity for proteins. Now we do. This technology will change the way we do cancer diagnostics and treatment." Biomarkers, like PSA, are known for hundreds of diseases. Using these protein targets, the new method could detect diseases at earlier ...
