NIH Public Access Policy Citation Management Tool
Beginning July 23, 2010, program directors and principal investigators must use My NCBI’s “My Bibliography” tool to manage their professional bibliographies. They will no longer be able to enter citations manually into eRA Commons.
To ease investigators’ bibliography management, improve data quality, and ensure compliance with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) public access policy, eRA Commons has linked to the National Center for Biotechnology Information’s (NCBI’s) personal online tool, “My NCBI.” Using “My Bibliography,” users can maintain and manage a list of all types of their authored works, such as articles, presentations, and books.
When a new or existing My NCBI account is linked to a Commons account, citations added to My Bibliography will appear automatically in the Commons account. Investigators and their delegates will benefit from My Bibliography’s ability to query the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed and PubMed Central databases, as well as the NIH Manuscript Submission system, and import citation data directly from those sources. Users can access My NCBI from Commons, or they can log in directly to My NCBI using their Commons username and password.
For more information on how investigators should handle the upcoming changes, see notice number NOT-OD-10-103. Read the step-by-step guide for how to set up a “My NCBI” account and access “My Bibliography.”

Influenza Roundtable Online Videos on CDC-TV
There are many questions people have about seasonal and the 2009 H1N1 flu. CDC has developed several broadcast quality videos that focus on some of the different topics for which the public is seeking information such as warning signs of the flu, preventing its spread and taking antiviral medications.
Four "Influenza Roundtable" videos were filmed, featuring Dr. Joe Bresee, Chief of the Epidemiology and Prevention Branch in CDC's Influenza Division. These videos provide easy to understand answers for the public and provide important public health recommendations and action steps to protect their health and the health of their families.http://www.cdc.gov/news/2009/11/flu_roundtable/

The experimental vaccine developed by researchers at Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Institute in Ohio was 100 percent effective in preventing breast cancer in a group of mice specially bred to develop the disease. The vaccine, which has been in the works for the past eight years, also stopped the growth of existing tumors.
An autoimmune-mediated strategy for prophylactic breast cancer vaccination.
