HIV vaccine: Scientists Report Improvements in its Production

Research on HIV over the past decade has led to many promising ideas for vaccines to prevent infection by the AIDS virus, but very few candidate vaccines have been tested in clinical trials. One reason for this is the technical difficulty of manufacturing vaccines based on the envelope proteins of the virus, according to Phil Berman, who led the development of a major component of the only vaccine to have shown any efficacy against HIV in a clinical trial.

An Ultrasonographic Identification of the ALL and Knee Anatomy

In this study, researchers regulated inter-observer agreement in the ultrasonographic identification of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) and in the evaluation of its length and thickness in healthy subjects. The identification and description of this ligament, was carried out with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in vivo and in anatomic dissection with different percentages of sensitivity.
