Multiple protocol breaches behind anthrax exposure at US federal labs
Reuters
The safety breach at a government lab that may have exposed 84 workers to live anthrax centered on a pivotal lapse in procedure: Researchers working with the bacteria waited 24 hours to be sure they had killed the pathogens, half the time required by a new scientific protocol. The lab designed to handle extremely dangerous pathogens at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta unknowingly sent live samples of anthrax to labs with fewer safeguards, where the exposure occurred.

Fasting triggers stem cell regeneration of damaged, old immune system
HealthCanal
In the first evidence of a natural intervention triggering stem cell-based regeneration of an organ or system, a study in the June 5 issue of the Cell Stem Cell shows that cycles of prolonged fasting not only protect against immune system damage — a major side effect of chemotherapy — but also induce immune system regeneration, shifting stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self-renewal.

Washington University in St. Louis via Bioscience Technology
A provocative study links prolonged episodes of sepsis — a life-threatening infection and leading cause of death in hospitals — to the reactivation of otherwise dormant viruses in the body. In healthy people, such latent viruses are kept in check by the immune system.
