>The 17th century philosopher René Descartes is known for coining

>and physiologist.  Rather than rely on the spiritualism of the

>explain the uncertain areas of knowledge.  As a physiologist,
>Descartes believed that the blood included a fluid, which he

>Hopkins Q&A: Pesticides and Children
>BALTIMORE - The Environmental Working Group (EWG) recently

>March 31, 1999
>BALTIMORE (Johns Hopkins) - Fifteen years ago today a study began
>that's shed much light on what predicts the progression of HIV
>and AIDS. The multicenter AIDS cohort study (MACS for short)
>gathered more than 5,000 gay men as volunteers.
>Studied at four different sites around the country, the group
>yielded critical information about who is at highest risk for
>developing AIDS. Researchers were thus able to develop guidelines
>about who should be treated, and when.  From the men doctors
>learned more about how HIV levels in the blood predict how fast
>the disease will progress.  The MACS volunteers have been very
>loyal, coming to clinics year after year for checkups.  Johns
>Hopkins participated in the study.
>"I have a lot of respect for the dedication that the study
>participants have exhibited to fighting this scourge, which can
>affect anybody," explains Dr.  Joseph Margolick.  "It makes me
>mindful always of how unfair it is that gay people have
>encountered the kinds of discrimination they've had to contend
>with so often.
>The study's current focus is on why HIV progresses at different
>rates in different people.
