ABSTRACT
The article presents updates on medical researches. A U.S. phase II tr ial found that VX-770, a new drug that is an active potentiator of the conductance regulator gene, led to significant improvements in nasal potential difference and reductions in sweat chloride in patients with cystic fibrosis. Particular focus is given to the prevalence of H1N1 in England. A study published in the "New England Journal of Medicine" found that opioid-dependent mothers treated with buprenorphine instea d of methadone experienced less neonatal abstinence syndrome.
