For males, exposure during the second trimester also af fected mortality in cancer and heart disease. Overall, the effects on all-cause mortality were modest, with about three months shorter remaining life expectancy for the cohorts exposed during ...

The influenza A virus infection continues to be a threat to the human population. The seasonal variation of the virus and the likelihood of periodical pandemics caused by completely new virus strains make it difficult to produce vaccines that efficiently protect against this infection. Antibodies are very important in preventing the infection and in blocking virus propagation once the infection has taken place. However, the precise protection mechanism provided by these antibodies still needs to be established. Furthermore, most research has focused on antibodies directed to the globular head domain of hemagglutinin. Howev...
