Medical Xpress 2014 inventory of the top 10 medical findings

2014 is an exciting field of medical research a year, research teams around the world for in-depth analysis of human disease prevention and make unremitting efforts with the road. Some studies focus on ways to prevent aging or senescence, others are looking for ways to promote health.

1. Geographical origin of the United States and several European countries AIDS researchers formed a joint research team of multi-regional, to piece together the AIDS when, where, and in what way the first infected humans.
