The success rate of islet (cells that produce insulin to control blood sugar levels) transplants has recently been increased markedly by transplanting a higher number of islets prepared from 2 to 4 donor pancreases. Howeve...

Researchers Find New Technique To Identify Fetal Genetic Material From Amniotic Fluid

In background information in the article, the authors write that fetal monitoring in the womb is now "limited to noninvasive methods such as measurement of uterine size or anatomic evaluation by fetal sonography. In addition, genetic analysis can be performed on a...

Development background The vaccine candidates for the trial - DNA-HIV-C and NYVAC-HIV-C - were developed within the network European Vaccine Effort against HIV/AIDS. NYVAC-HIV-C (a vaccine candidate based on poxvirus) was manufactured by sanofi pasteur - the vaccine divi...

15 generations of untrained jocks, couch potatoes show big physiological adaptations

... rats ?meaning they all had the same basic genetic background ?and bred two separate lines purely on the basis of "continued selecting of untrained rats with either high- and low-running endurance." In this way, they could study the genetic role in endurance performance and oxygen delivery systems. Results of ...

Researchers develop new method for facile identification of proteins in bacterial cells

...ing a lot of time and resources on eliminating the background noise to find the signal, our method increases the signal upfront so that it stands out above the background noise. By forcing an up-regulation of enzyme expression in the bacterium of interest, our target can...

Microscopic brain imaging in the palm of your hand

..., as they return to the detector. The result is a background haze in the images, almost like viewing the sample through a cloud. It's possible to get rid of background haze and reduce the scattering using two-photon fluorescence imaging. Instead of one higher-energy p...

New mitochondrial DNA gene chip may be early cancer diagnosis tool

The NIST Cancer Biomarker Validation and Reference Laboratory assesses cost, efficiency and reliability of potential diagnostic techniques using biomarkers before further clinical evaluation in other laboratories of th...

Hospitalizations because of chicken pox down dramatically since implementation of vaccine

Before its licensure in 1995, almost everyone developed chicken pox; thus, incidence approximated the birth cohort, with about 13,000 hospitalizations and 100 to 150 deaths annually. Varicella vaccine coverage has increase...

Genomics researchers discover protein deficit that causes drug toxicity

In patients with the genetic defect, instead of helping heal, a sta...

Tiny avalanche photodiodes target bioterrorism agents

...t by the ozone layer providing for a naturally low background signal. Solar-blind APDs are intrinsically able to take advantage of this low background level, while PMTs must use external filters to become solar-blind. This makes secure battlefield com...

DDT-resistant insects have additional genetic advantage that helps resistance spread

No single gene for ageing

...of cancer, because cancer and ageing have the same background causes, thinks Vilhelm Bohr, professor at the University of Baltimore in the United States. "Cancer is more frequent with age. We must understand the causes of ageing to be able to understand why we have cancer," points out Bohr during his presentat...

Divergent mating systems and parental conflict as a barrier to hybridization in flowering plants

... parties with differing interests, investment, and background interact to produce a new individual. From the former perspective, parental interests are unified (both wish to produce vigorous offspring), while the latter suggests possible conflict. This conflict can occur before or after fertilization. Before f...
