An expanded broadcast partnership between WXXI Public Broadcasting Council
and WRUR at the University will enlarge the broadcast audience, give
listeners more options, and offer University students new learning opportunities.
Provides Clues to Cause of Sudden Cardiac Death in Teens
New research suggests fainting during childhood and whether a teen is
going through the male or female changes of puberty are among the factors
that predict whether a genetic defect will suddenly stop the teen’s
heartbeat. The study, whose authors include Arthur Moss, professor of
medicine, was published in the September 13 issue of the Journal
of the American Medical Association.
Needed for Local HIV Vaccine Studies
Participants are needed for HIV vaccine research studies being conducted
at the Medical Center. Participants must be HIV-negative and between
the ages of 18 to 50. Volunteers are paid an average of $750. HIV vaccines
are synthetic, so it is impossible to get HIV from the vaccine by taking
part in the studies. To learn more, call the Vaccine Trials Unit at
(585) 756-2DAY (756-2329) or visit www.vaccineunit.org.
