Thank You for reading

We have just posted a new story

  • 'Roundup' soldiers!? US Army research on an innovative gene therapy that stops lethal chemical warfare nerve agents in mice. Using AAV viral vectors, the researchers arm the mice with a 'scavenger' enzyme that find and destroy the deadly nerve agents in the blood before reaching the brain. The new research could give soldiers long-lasting protection against nerve agents.
