Scientists succeed in blocking transmission of cell-associated AIDS virus

... stymied by the lack of an animal model that could mimic this type of transmission. In the present study, the researchers tell how they developed a mouse that is susceptible to the vaginal transmission of cell-associated HIV, but that is not susceptible to infection by cell-free virus.

Tanning lamps may increase risks of skin cancers

...un is a major cause of skin cancer. Tanning lamps mimic sunlight and provide such an intense, concentrated dose of UVR, we would predict that people who use these devices may get skin cancers," Karagas said. "Also, tanning lamp users often get a burn like a sunburn, and sunburns are linked to the risk of...
