Blood test may help signal tumor's remission, return in throat cancer patients

...physicians and their patients are now opting for a combination of chemotherapy and radiation as a first line of treatment. However, there is no way to predict which patients will respond well to this treatment or whether a tumor will return later. Clinical exams, X-rays, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are ...

Crammed with charged DNA, pressure rises inside virus

...al to overcoming this repulsion. Without the right combination of positively charged ions, the virus could not force all of its DNA into the capsid.” The researchers discovered that the forces in the capsid are slightly higher than predicted by theoretical calculations. They say this may be because the packe...

Ancient DNA traces the woolly mammoth's disappearance

...eled off, and one of two lineages died out. “In combination with the results on other species, a picture is emerging of extinction not as a sudden event at the end of the last ice age, but as a piecemeal process over tens of thousands of years involving progressive loss of genetic diversity,” said Dr. Ian Bar...

Salty oceans provide early warning for climate change

...til now it wasn’t clear how this occurred. Using a combination of modern observations, numerical models and palaeoclimate data scientists are increasingly realising that salt is the key. Their results reveal that a build up of salty water can stimulate deep water circulation, while a diluting of the waters is...

Mutating the entire genome

... Capecchi improved their new method by using it in combination with a “transposon” or so-called “jumping gene” named piggyBac, which comes from a moth. They used piggyBac to insert pieces of loxP DNA randomly into numerous spots on the mouse genome. So scientists easily can breed multiple generations of mice wit...

Ice Age extinction claimed highly carnivorous Alaskan wolves

...blamed on human hunting or climate change, or on a combination of factors as the Ice Age waned. For the specialized Alaskan wolves, the story is perhaps less complicated. “When their prey disappeared, these wolves did as well,” Leonard said. But the results of this study also imply that the effects of the ex...

Common treatment for methamphetamine overdose may damage brain cells

Brusilow, Hamosh, and colleagues at Stanford University, University of Minnesota, Thomas Jefferson University and the Medical College of Wisconsin looked back at 299 urea...

Smallpox outbreak: How long would it take for vaccines to protect people? Would it work?

... The new vaccine will be given either alone or in combination with Dryvax. "Another purpose of the study is to see how quickly people can be protected against smallpox after a release of smallpox into the environment," Frey said. Dryvax® vaccine is the original Food and Drug Administration (FDA) licensed v...

This means that the team have a more detailed picture than ever before of exactly how the parasite recognises and at...

'Short-circuit' found in ocean circulation

...ant part of it works? The research shows that a combination of rapid mixing across and rapid movement along density surfaces creates a 'short-circuit' in the overturning circulation, meaning it is more concentrated in this part of the Southern Ocean. The researchers made use of a unique signal - the sprea...
