"Americans and Canadians have every reason to be concerned about the future of this line of research. "Climate changes and world-wide travel are increasing the risk of haemorrhagic fever viruses even in Canada. Warmer temperatures and increased travel are bringing such tropical diseases much closer to home and as a result we cannot afford to ignore the global health status of populations in other countries. It is therefore critical that we gain more knowledge into the molecular details of viral function so that we can develop more effective treatments and control the spread of these diseases," Omichinski said."

A potential mechanism to combat diseases caused by haemorrhagic fever viruses has been discovered by researchers at the University of Montreal's Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine. These diseases present a dramatic risk to human health as they often spread quickly and kill a high percentage ...

A drug that could halt the progression of #multiplesclerosis   may soon be developed thanks to a discovery by a team at the CHUM Research Centre and the University of #Montreal   . The researchers have identified a molecule called MCAM, and they have shown that blocking this molecule could delay the onset of the disease and significantly slow its progression. These encouraging results from in vitro tests in humans and in vivo tests in mice were published today in the Annals of #Neurology   . "We believe we have identified the first therapy that will impact the quality of life of people with multiple sclerosis by significantly reducing the disability and the disease's progression," said Dr. Alexandre Prat, lead author of the study, researcher at the CRCHUM, and professor in the Department of Neurosciences at the University of Montreal.

Rift Valley fever virus' proteins imitate human DNA repair factors, say scientists. Using drugs to dam this chemical reaction would condemn the disease's infectiousness, they note, explaining that the genomes of many hemorrhagic fever viruses mutate rapidly, enabling them to quickly adapt to potential drug treatments and evade the immune system.

We stopped in on the way between Ottawa and Montreal for dinner. The food was of the ordinary kind you'd find at any North American diner, and slightly on the expensive side. I was very unimpressed that a $4 charge was applied for splitting one main course meal over two plates so two toddlers could share it (which the waitress herself suggested, neglecting to mention the fee.) The worst though was asking us if we'd like desert, us responding no, and the waitress bringing out big trays of cake anyway. Cue screaming children (it didn't work.) The service was friendly and the meal generally inoffensive but I won't be bothered going back, especially seeing as there is a diner right on the 417 at the same exit.

The food is nice but overpriced for what it is, and amazingly (for a park chalet that is owned by the borough) there is almost nothing that is easy to feed to children in the menu. What I dislike about this café though is the disinterested and lazy wait staff. Customers shouldn't have to beg for service, especially not at these prices. It was excellent when it first opened but the last few times I've gone I've been really disappointed. I won't both going back again.

The service at the checkouts was extremely slow, the selection comparable to what you'd find anywhere else and the prices were no bargain. I'm sorry I wasted my time.

Café is incredibly poor value for money, and worse than that, the service is completely disinterested. Our waitress literally walked off and disappeared, and our beverages never arrived. The only time I've ever felt like walking off without paying the bill (which we obviously never received either,) but instead we queued up like good Canadians behind 10 other people and eventually managed to pay.
