Flu Vacine and Asthma

ScienceDaily (2009-05-20) — The inactivated flu vaccine does not appear to be effective in preventing influenza-related hospitalizations in children, especially the ones with asthma. In fact, children who get the flu vaccine are more at risk for hospitalization than their peers who do not get the vaccine, according to new research. While these findings do raise questions about the efficacy of the vaccine, they do not in fact implicate it as a cause of hospitalizations, according to researchers. […]

Viruses Can Survive For Centuries or Millenium

Interesting and timely post on Wired Science yesterday. Virii have been found to remain virulent for centuries, and could potentially for millenium, in the frozen lakes of Siberia. This is likely due to the configuration or “anatomy” of a virus particle. You can read more of the report about a presentation made at the American […]

Melanin Production and Tobacco Use, Dependence, and Exposure

The June 2009 issue of Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior includes a study looking at a link between melanin production as a result of UV exposure and tobacco use in African Americans. Although the findings established a correlation, repeated studies are needed to verify their results. They go on to hypothesize that this correlation may be […]

Immunity Base of Operation: Bone Marrow, not Circulation

The journal ‘Immunity‘ yesterday released a study showing strong evidence, and confirming a previous controversial study, that between initial and subsequent infection 80% of CD4 memory T-lymphocytes are located within bone marrow and not the circulatory system as has been widely believed by heath researchers.

The abstract can be read here;

One Was Not Enough?

The “Scientist” magazine blog posted a follow up on a report last week of a division of a ‘fake journal’. Yesterday a follow up post was made stating that the reported journal was not the only one of its type, which bore the imprint of Elsevier’s Excerpta Medica. The follow up post reported there were […]
