Please refer to the license statement in each article for specific terms of use.


The NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) System is used to submit manuscripts that arise from NIH funding to the digital archive, in accordance with the NIH Public Access Policy and the law it implements. The law and Public Access Policy are intended to ensure that the public has access to the published results of NIH-funded research.
