Mailman School of Public Health researchers report blood DNA can be early predictor of liver cancer

...C. According to the study findings, these factors coupled with smoking and alcohol status, and alterations found in this study in serum DNA, resulted in an overall predictive accuracy of 89% for detection of HCC. “These are extremely encouraging findings,?says Regina Santella, PhD, professor of Environm...

Study to explore using magnets to correct 'sunken chest'

Prenatal cocaine's lasting cellular effects

.... Incredibly high levels of cocaine -- usually coupled with the abuse of other drugs -- can lead to premature labor, preterm birth and low birth weight, Stanwood said. "But in women who have abused relatively low recreational doses of cocaine, it is actually very hard to distinguish those children at...

CSIRO imagery shows Outer Great Barrier Reef at risk from river plumes

...the accumulated material in the creeks ands rivers coupled with increased sediment runoff from the land is causing a significant transport of terrestrial material to all areas of the affected reefs and reef waters. Managers of the GBR have long been examining the effects of run-off of sediments, includin...

Novel laboratory technique nudges genes into activity

But it is already clear that coupled oscillating biological populations can give rise to potentially important effects such as “synchronized chaos? the interaction between two weakly competing consumers of a food resource can be transformed by the arrival of a third competitor to provid...

Ongoing collapse of coral reef shark populations

These observations, coupled with population modeling showing ongoing, rapid declines in population size in fished areas, lead the authors to conclude that reef sharks are approaching “ecological extinction”—that is, becoming so rare that they can no longer perform their natural...

Researchers to develop active nanoscale surfaces for biological separations

...ered that the mobility of DNA molecules is closely coupled to the movement of the underlying lipid bilayer. "The advantage of these surfaces is that they can be actively modified," Kane said. "Thus by changing the temperature, shining light, or applying an electric field, we propose to change the behavior...
