New Breast Cancer Test Could Save Lives

...mportant for successful treatment - many women are dependent on self-examination which can prove unreliable. This latest technology has the ability to image through dense breast tissue, and therefore can reach a far wider section of women than X-ray mammography can. Women below 50 in particular will benefit f...

Potential Drug Target For Treating Cocaine Abuse Found

... In 2002, 1.5 million Americans were thought to be dependent on or abusing cocaine. "Cocaine is capable of destroying not only the lives of those addicted, but also the lives of those around them," says Katz. "An effective treatment for cocaine addiction would be of immeasurable help to these individuals and t...

Measuring Enzymes At End Of Cancer Pathway Predicts Outcome Of Tarceva, Taxol

...They found that tumor cell death was significantly dependent on whether CDK2 activity was repressed. They then double checked those findings by "putting CDK2 back," Ueno says. "We found that the effects of Tarceva were reduced when CDK2 was given back to the cells, so this shows us that CDK2 is the real target...

While the new caged compound and its photoreactive properties may never be used for anything as complex as drug delivery, it may well serve a purpose in studying such areas as memory, brain function an...

Random gene expression may drive HIV into hiding

...The significance of fluctuations in expression are dependent on HIV being expressed at a low level in the cell initially, Arkin said. Commonly, it's only when just a few molecules are interacting with each other that random fluctuations can have such a large effect on eventual outcome, he explained. The resea...
