Tadpole soon to help in the fight against cancer and lymphedema

...ess Prox1 than normal tadpoles. This resulted in a badly developed lymphatic vessel system, because of which the tadpoles showed signs of lymphedema.

Nanoparticles carry cancer-killing drugs into tumor cells

Tsunami-damaged coral reefs should be left to recover naturally, say scientists

...eefs in places such as Thailand and Sri Lanka were badly affected by the tsunami that happened in December last year. The damage was mainly caused by the backwash ?waves returning to the sea that sucked back debris from the shore such as trees, cars, sediment and parts of buildings, which broke and overtur...

Research shows smoking adds a decade to reproductive age of IVF patients

...d 16% of non-smokers. Overweight women also fared badly with a 33% lower chance of a live birth from their first treatment cycle.

Taking the piste out of Alpine vegetation

...oody plants and early-flowering species being most badly affected.
