In bacterial vaginosis, normal lactobacilli are replaced by an anaerobic flora and this may increase susceptibility to Neisseria gonorrhoeae, a facultative anaerobe.

We report the first detection of a planetary-mass companion to a star using the High Resolution Spectrograph (HRS) of the Hobby-Eberly Telescope (HET). The HET-HRS now gives routine radial velocity precision of 2-3 m s −1 for high SNR observations of quiescent stars. The planetary-mass companion to the metal-rich K0V star HD 37605 has an orbital period of(More)
