Researcher to study astronaut bone loss for space biology agency

...ame reason astronauts do: their skeletons have not borne any weight. "This makes their rehabilitation risky, because, like astronauts who have returned to earth, they are predisposed to fractures." Long's research project will focus on the relationship between three substances: insulin-like growth facto...

Meat and two neutrons -- the key to a longer life

... lifespan without adverse side effects. If this is borne out by further experiments the implications are profound.' Isotopes could also be used in pet food or as a means to protect workers or soldiers from radiation. Deuterium, a natural isotope of hydrogen (with 2 protons rather than one) could be used...

Vanishing beetle horns have surprise function

... sexual dimorphism of some Onthophagus beetles was borne of differential growth; flamboyantly horned male beetles grow them, hornless females simply can't. But the American Naturalist report shows that even within sexually dimorphic horned beetle species, both sexes initially form the horns, even if one or...

Pressured by predators, lizards see rapid shift in natural selection

...narrow branches and twigs. Their hypothesis was borne out. Six months after the introduction of the predator, Losos found that the Anolis population had dropped by half or more on the islands with the predators, and in comparison to the lizards on the predator-free islands, long legs were more strongly ...

Researchers map spread of pathogens in the human body

... is a bacterium that causes typhoid fever and food borne gastroenteritis in humans and animals, with severe medical and veterinary consequences and threats for the food industry. The work is of broad significance as these novel research approaches are applicable to a multitude of pathogenic microorganisms...

Other patients bear the real cost of Herceptin

The real cost of Herceptin is borne by other patients whose treatment has to be dropped to balance the books, say doctors in this week’s BMJ. New guidance from the National Institute for health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends trastuzumab (Herceptin) in early breast cancer, b...

Measuring artery repair cells could become new heart disease test

... the equation." "If the results of this study are borne out, measuring EPCs could be a better test for defining an individual patient's risk for heart disease," Povsic said. "Theoretically, patients who are found to have low levels of EPCs would be those patients we may want to treat more aggressively." ...

The evolution of food plants: Genetic control of grass flower architecture

...provide most of the world's food. Grass seeds are borne on axillary branches, whose branching patterns dictate most of the variation in form seen in the grasses. Maize produces two types of inflorescence; the tassel (male pollen-bearing flowers) and the ear (female flowers and site of seed or kernel devel...

Marine mammals are on the frontline of failing ocean health

...s the third most common cause of death due to food borne disease in the US: estimates indicate that up to 25% of the population may be infected with the parasite, but people rarely show symptoms or are simply hit with a flu-like illness. However, if women are infected when they are pregnant, it can lead t...

Pair of studies offer new clues to combat antibiotic resistance

...lent, include strains that are known to cause food borne illness, bubonic plague, Legionnaires?disease and cholera, among others. They are among the most difficult bugs to control using antibiotics, researchers say. In another study published in the journal, researchers at Harvard Medical School and Harva...

Neurologix announces positive results of gene therapy clinical trial in Parkinson's disease

...UPDRS scores are highly promising and, if they are borne out with additional data, would be comparable to results seen with STN Deep Brain Stimulation. Unlike deep brain stimulation, however, our gene therapy approach is much simpler, can be carried out entirely under local anesthesia, and avoids leaving ...

Diabetic nerve therapy shows 'striking' results

...y effects on nerve protection and regeneration are borne out long-term. Nerve disease in diabetes is the major cause of non-traumatic lower limb amputations in Europe and North America. Scientists at The University of Manchester, working with colleagues at American biotech firm Sangamo BioSciences Inc, ha...

Sugar beet virus mutation requires Texas touch

... California researcher. A similar virus, beet soil borne mosaic virus, also was found about the same time. The two viruses are closely related, Rush said. But rhizomania is devastating and found worldwide, while the mosaic virus is not as destructive and is limited to the United States. Growers, breeders...
