Antibodies Block Specific Viruses That Cause Arthritis, Brain Infections

Antibodies Block Specific Viruses That Cause Arthritis, Brain Infections Alphaviruses — mosquito-borne viruses that can trigger brain infections and arthritis — may have met their match. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified two antibodies that protect animals from disease caused by alphaviruses. The antibodies

A Fountain of Youth for Ageing Stem Cells in Bone Marrow

A Fountain of Youth for Ageing Stem Cells in Bone Marrow As we age, our bones become thinner, we suffer fractures more often, and bone-diseases such as osteoporosis are more likely to occur. One responsible mechanism involves the impaired function of the bone-marrow stem cells, which are required for the
