A bizarre virus that survives in nearly boiling acid may yield new clues to treat deadly diseases.
New findings published in PLOS Biology show that adults over the age of 30 may only catch the flu about twice a decade. The study results are based on the analysis of blood samples from volunteers in Southern China, while researchers examined antibody levels against nine different influenza strains ...
