From Scotland - According to a report presented at the meeting for the Society for General Microbiology, stem cell therapy could in the future be used to treat HIV. Researchers are studying a new approach that would deliver antiviral DNA to the immune system, consequently arming it with a defense against viral infection. This approach would involve extracting blood stem cells from the patient's bone marrow and infusing them with this antiviral DNA. From New York - Scientist have identified a disrupted brain connection that may be associated with schizophrenia, according to a report published in the journal Nature. Researchers studied mice that were altered to have a genetic mutation known to occur in schizophrenics. They found that these mice had a communication breakdown in their brains between the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex, an area known to affect cognitive behavior. And finally, from Boston - Female researchers are paid significantly less than males, according to a report published in the journal Academic Medicine. Surveying over 2000 researchers, results showed that females earned an average of over $13,000 yearly less than males--an aspect that the study authors were at a loss to explain.
