Challenges in implementing and maintaining osteoporosis therapy.
In the United States, an estimated 19% of older men and 30% of older women are at elevated risk of osteoporotic fracture and considered to be eligible for treatment. The burden of osteoporosis is similar in Europe and is projected to rise worldwide,

Discordance between genotypic resistance and pseudovirus phenotypic resistance in AIDS patients after long-term antiretroviral therapy and virological failure.
Sixteen original recombinant pseudoviruses were generated by cloning the reverse transcriptase and protease genes of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 from patients into a plasmid vector (pNL4-3-ΔE-EGFP). By site-directed mutagenesis two restricti

Sickle cell disease: new opportunities and challenges in Africa.
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is one of the most common genetic causes of illness and death in the world. This is a review of SCD in Africa, which bears the highest burden of disease. The first section provides an introduction to the molecular basis of S

New challenges and opportunities in nonclinical safety testing of biologics.
New challenges and opportunities in nonclinical safety testing of biologics were discussed at the 3rd European BioSafe Annual General Membership meeting in November 2013 in Berlin: (i)Approaches to refine use of non-human primates in non-clinical saf

Anaerobic digestion of microalgal biomass: Challenges, opportunities and research needs.
Integration of anaerobic digestion (AD) with microalgae processes has become a key topic to support economic and environmental development of this resource. Compared with other substrates, microalgae can be produced close to the plant without the nee

AIDS vaccines for Africa: scientific opportunities, challenges and strategies.
More than decades have already elapsed since human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was identified as the causative agent of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The HIV has since spread to all parts of the world with devastating effects. In sub-sa
