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

...ition, because IL-6, IL-8, VEGF, and HGF have been detected in the blood of patients with breast, cervical, ovarian, and other cancers, they suggest that this technique may have broader application in the monitoring of other forms of cancer. Further studies would need to be performed on patients with these ty...

Pregnant mom's exposure to flu vaccine kick-starts fetal immune system

...rs for Disease Control and Prevention. The authors detected anti-Fluzone antibodies in approximately 40% of cord blood specimens examined. These results and further data reported in the study establish that B and T cell responses to antigens occur in utero following maternal vaccination against influenza, sup...

CSIRO scientists join fight to save 'Tassie devil'

...rmine if any chemical or structural changes can be detected that can be correlated with the disease. “We are hoping we can work together to develop a pre-clinical diagnostic test based on recent developments in the diagnosis of human breast cancer,” Dr Church said. “Such a test would enable the screening...

454 sequencing identifies HIV drug resistance at early stage

...ic. The additional low abundant resistant variants detected by Ultra Deep sequencing were found to be extremely important as it enabled the prediction of early antiretroviral treatment failure with strong statistical significance. “Current genotypic resistance technology available to clinicians is limited to...

In nature, proteins sweep up nanoparticles

... the team analyzed the zinc sulfide aggregates and detected the characteristic signal of proteins. Next, to further zero in on this intriguing signal, they examined the sample using an extremely high-spatial-resolution imaging tool called secondary ion probe spectrometry, which is located at the Department...

Potato wart eyed as risk to potato production

...serious disease of cultivated potato that has been detected worldwide. Potato wart is caused by the fungus Synchytrium endobioticum, which is considered to be the most important worldwide quarantine plant pathogen of potato. While not harmful to humans, the disease causes unsightly growths that initially appe...

Reconstructing the biology of extinct species: A new approach

...lve features approximately 1/100 the size of those detected by medical CT scanners. In addition, experienced field workers used personal knowledge or film of animals in the wild to classify species into one of six locomotor categories ranging from very slow and deliberate to fast and agile.

Catching cancer's spread by watching hemoglobin

...bsorption," and then gives off signals that can be detected to build up an image. One "pump" laser boosts (excites) hemoglobin molecules to a higher energy state. The other "probe" laser monitors the hemoglobin after the excitation. Sometimes the pump laser is off and there is no two-photon absorption. By sub...

Protein enables discovery of quantum effect in photosynthesis

... happens inside a bacteriochlorophyll complex, and detected a 'quantum beating." The effect, described in the April 12, 2007 issue of Nature, occurs when light-induced excitations in the complex meet and interfere constructively ­ much like the interactions that occur between the ripples formed by throwing...

Genetic roots of bipolar disorder revealed by first genome-wide study of illness

...H gene is on chromosome 13. Several other genes detected in the study produce proteins involved in this and other biochemical pathways thought to play a role in bipolar disorder. Understanding the effects that variations of these genes have on brain-cell function could lead to explanations of how they con...

Study offers clues to 'Broken Heart Syndrome'

The most common symptom of broken heart syndrome was chest pain, in 70 percent of patients, followed by shortness of breath in 33 percent. All patients had ECG changes suggestive of an acute coronary syndrome, a term t...

DNA-damage test could aid drug development
