Even older women at high risk have little interest in being tested for HIV, study finds

...t older populations, older women appear to be less capable of accurately assessing their lifetime risk of HIV even when they have significant risk factors and live in communities with high rates of infection, Dr. Akers said. We need to design prevention strategies and AIDS education for this vulnerable popul...

Brightening prospects of using fluorescent nanotubes in medical applications

...gle-walled semiconducting nanotubes, or SWNTs, are capable of producing light. Metallic nanotubes actually inhibit the brightness of their fluorescent neighbors. But it has been very difficult to separate the strongly fluorescent SWNTs from all the rest in large quantities. Nanotube soot is insoluble in wate...

Scripps Research awarded $17 million for adult stem cell use to treat eye diseases

...s approach uses adult stem cells-pluripotent cells capable of differentiating into a variety of cell types-harvested from bone marrow (and potentially peripheral and cord blood). These adult stem cells are injected into an eye that is forming normal or abnormal blood vessels. Once in the eye, the Friedlander...

Huge waves from 1 storm slam coasts some 6000 km apart

...these devastating swells hit coasts. Storms are capable of generating waves of different wavelengths that travel in several directions upon leaving the storm system, with the longest wavelengths travelling the fastest. As these waves cross open seas, they can accumulate energy at precise locations and bec...
