And there's nothing worse than reaching for a cold one, taking that first sip and realizing your beer's been skunked: chemicals have reacted to form compounds that cause an awful, bitter taste. This week, Reactions explains... [Comments]Avoid skunky beer this Oktoberfest with the help of chemistry

Ancient human genome from southern Africa throws light on our origins

9/29/2014
What can DNA from the skeleton of a man who lived 2,330 years ago in the southernmost tip of Africa tell us about ourselves as humans? A great deal when his DNA profile is one of the 'earliest diverged' oldest in genetic terms found to-date in a region where modern humans are believed to have...

Scientists discover a new role for estrogen in the pathology of breast cancer

9/29/2014
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. Scientists have discovered a previously unknown mechanism by which estrogen prepares cells to divide, grow and, in the case of estrogen-positive breast cancers, resist cancer drugs. The researchers say the work reveals new targets for breast cancer therapy and will help doct... [Comments]Scientists discover a new role for estrogen in the pathology of breast cancer

Human genome was shaped by an evolutionary arms race with itself

9/28/2014
New findings by scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz, suggest that an evolutionary arms race between rival elements within the genomes of primates drove the evolution of complex regulatory networks that orchestrate the activity of genes in every cell of our bodies. The... [Comments]Human genome was shaped by an evolutionary arms race with itself

Docetaxel or pemetrexed with cisplatin achieve comparable outcomes in non-squamous Lu Ca

9/27/2014
The first direct comparison of treating non-squamous lung cancer with either pemetrexed or docetaxel in addition to cisplatin has shown that the two combinations achieve similar progression-free survival, although docetaxel was associated with more frequent adverse events. At the ESMO 2014 Congress in Madrid, Dr Young-Chul Kim from Chonnam National University Medical School, South Korea, r... [Comments]

Customising chemotherapy in Lu Ca: New Ph II data reported in 2 LB studies

9/27/2014
Measuring the expression levels of an enzyme involved in DNA synthesis can help predict the response of lung cancers to certain treatments, a Korean study has shown at the ESMO 2014 Congress in Madrid. In a randomized phase II study, researchers showed that patients whose lung cancers expressed low levels of an enzyme called thymidylate synthase experienced a greater benefit from treatment...
