Pregnant women at higher risk for HIV, Uganda study finds

...ssessed 2,188 HIV-negative women who were sexually active and were pregnant or breastfeeding, and compared their rates of HIV acquisition to 8,473 women who were neither pregnant nor lactating. They compared the incidence rates of HIV during pregnancy and breastfeeding with the rates during intervals when p...

New lifespan extension genes found

... Hst2 was overexpressed, so that the gene was more active than normal, the yeast lived longer than normal. A third gene, Hst1, appears to act when both Sir2 and Hst2 are missing. Sir2 and the newly identified Hst genes account for all of the life-prolonging effects of caloric restriction in yeast, Lin said...

Compound from Chinese medicine shows promise in head and neck cancer

...ve isomer of gossypol binds at a site to block the active Bcl-xL protein. A prior study conducted by researchers in the U-M Head and Neck Oncology Program showed Bcl-xL protein is often highly expressed in head and neck cancers. In this study, researchers developed head and neck cancer cell cultures resist...
