To overcome this drawback, peptide-based vaccines have been de...

Clinically, it is associated with varying levels of hypersensitivity skin reactions and its clinico-pathology is less explored. The present study aimed to investigate the immuno-oxidative pathology of chewing lice infestation in goats vis-à-vis immunomodulatory potential of two stand...

As we continue with the plagues, keep in mind that the Torah as it now exists was published in the 5th Century BCE, long after these events supposedly occurred, and that the Egyptian captivity is entirely mythical. The composition of the various elements of the Torah happened over the preceding 200 years or so. Psalm 78 recounts this mythical history but lists only 6 plagues. Psalm 105 lists 7 plagues, in a different order. Apparently someone decided to insert 3 more to make 10, but who knows why?1 [a]Then theLord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what theLord says: Let my people go, s...

Fish are either cultured or caught in the wild before being transferred to salmon sea cages. Ballan wrasse are a poorly studied species, and fundamental knowledge of physiological performances and environmental limits are therefore needed for better deployment strategies and to predict...
