Australian scientists have identified the immune response that determines why some mice are infected with mousepox and others are not, a discovery that could lead to better protection for humans in a bio-terror attack.

Mice that are resistant to mousepox, a close relative of the smallpox virus, produce three regulatory proteins called cytokines that are absent in mice that become infected.

Leave it to those crazy Aussies. Way to go! Pox may not seem like a big deal to most of us; however as the disease has become less common, so has our immunity to it.
