Indonesia is on the front line in the battle against the bird flu. No other nation has counted more deaths than Indonesia, where millions of chickens roam backyards freely.
Scientists have discovered a new source of stems cells and have used them to create muscle, bone, fat, blood vessel, nerve and liver cells in the laboratory.
It is important to remember that mycoplasma is a common bacteria and that vast majority of people recover without any treatment.
Young adults (ages 20 to 44) with normal lung function who later develop chronic cough and phlegm have a fourfold higher risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Eliminating tuberculosis will require a comprehensive strategy, with varying approaches for immigrant populations from high risk countries.
Common measures like hand washing, timely removal of unneeded catheters, and use of sites other than the groin to place lines when possible will make ICUs safer and will slash catheter related bloodstream infections.
A previously unexplained fatal form of Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a disorder that weakens bones and which may cause frequent fractures, results from a genetic defect in a protein involved in the production of collagen.
