Flu virus infects host by wiping out immune system cells Oct 21, 10:40 am
Washington, Oct. 21 (ANI): Scientists have discovered that flu virus infects its host by first wiping off the immune system's cells, which are best equipped to neutralize the virus.
How stem-cell rich stomach protects us from diverse infections Oct 13, 11:06 am
Washington, Oct 13 (ANI): A new study has revealed that the stomach naturally produces more stem cells than previously realized, likely for repair of injuries from infections, digestive fluids and the foods we eat.
