As we learned from the report of the Dutch researcher David van de Waver at the international conference on AIDS in Paris, resistance occurs at least 10 percent of newly identified HIV-infected. The only way out of the situation Waver thinks constantly working to create new drugs. As reported at the conference by another researcher - GeoIP lang (Joep Lange, President of the international society for AIDS - resistance to existing drugs is no excuse not to use them. According to him, it is necessary to maintain the interest of pharmaceutical companies in the development of new tools to "catch up" for mutations of the AIDS virus. Vaccine against AIDS has not yet been established, and many Immunostimulants only contribute to the development of the disease. Читать полностью -->

Disorders of lipid metabolism statins reduce the levels of C-reactive protein

Disorders of lipid metabolism statins reduce the levels of C-reactive proteinDisorders of lipid metabolism statins reduce the levels of C-reactive protein Previously it was demonstrated that statins can reduce the concentration of C-reactive protein (CRP) in patients with normo - or hypercholesterolemia. However, it was not known, is there a similar effect with hypertriglyceridemia and normal/increased concentration of cholesterol low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Dr. Michele Mercuri and his colleagues at Merck Research Laboratories (Rahway, NJ) studied the effects of simvastatin in 130 patients with combined hyperlipidemia and 195 patients with hypertriglyceridemia. The results of these double-blind placebo-controlled studies published in the November issue of the American Journal of Cardiology.

In short, the robot scientist who will never rebel against his Minister. "The idea is to create a computer model and to provide it with all knowledge," says Steve Olivier. His car was already able to find out the functions of the various genes of the yeast fungus. "We have compared the results with the work of real scientists in terms of speed and cost of the materials used. It turned out, the robot does everything better than the man". Читать полностью -->
