Researchers reach a crucial milestone despite the challenges of working under astronaut-like conditions
A continuous-flow method to synthesize medicine promises to change how pharmaceuticals are produced and used
Differences between how females and males experience concussions suggest the need for gender-specific prevention and treatment strategies
A new understanding of the role gut microbiota plays in HIV disease is beginning to emerge, suggesting potential new strategies to manage the infection
A ring that dispenses an antiviral drug is a step in the long, difficult slog to achieve HIV prevention
Despite improving sexual function and mood, researchers aren’t overly optimistic about testosterone replacement
In addition to damaging the organ directly, alcohol weakens naturally produced antibiotics, leaving the liver exposed to bacteria and disease
