WEFOUND12: The Journal of Philology (Cambridge Library Collection - Classic Journals) (Volume 12)


Many studies have shown that body fluids have components that prevent the transmission of HIV-1 from infected to non-infected persons through various forms of contact. This review explores the anti-HIV activity of various types body fluids, including saliva and breast milk, along with their respective mucin components. The authors then interrogate the possibility of exploiting mucins to formulate a biologically based biocompatible substance that could act as a topical prophylactic to prevent transmission of the virus.

Virology Journal is an open access, peer reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of virology, including research on the viruses of animals, plants and microbes. The journal welcomes basic research as well as pre-clinical and clinical studies of novel diagnostic tools, vaccines and anti-viral therapies.

Rorschach's journal within the narrative is explicitly titled "Rorshach's Journal: 1984-1985", which may imply that he kept previous annual journals.

Just before leaving to confront Adrian Veidt , Rorschach mails his journal to The New Frontiersman for safekeeping, in the hope that even if he dies the information within his journal will one day help expose Veidt.

The police report when Rorschach is arrested describes it as, "one notebook, pages filled with what is either an elaborate cypher or handwriting too cramped and eccentric to be legible" - leading to the further ironic implication that the fate of the world's future rests not only on Rorschach's single journal, but on his bad handwriting.
