...ang's group, and the lead author of the study. To determine the exact recipe for motor neuron growth, Li foraged labs worldwide to obtain the growth factors and other natural chemicals needed to guide cells from one stage of motor neuron development to another. But once past a certain point, Li found that the...

Adding Radiation Therapy To Chemotherapy Improves Survival In Patients With High-risk Breast Cancer

...randomized radiation therapy trial was designed to determine the effect on survival of the addition of locoregional radiation therapy (radiation to the lymph nodes and chest wall) to a course of chemotherapy after radical mastectomy in premenopausal women with lymph node–positive breast cancer. Between 1979 an...

Another goal is to find out whether or not increasingthe number of circulating EPCs results in improved blood flow to theleg, improved blo...

Termites feed through good vibrations

...termites use their ability to detect vibrations to determine which food source is most suitable. The termites can also detect how the vibrations are made. This ability could be likened to a form of sonar. Dr Evans says different termite species are known to prefer eating particular sizes of wood; certain dryw...

UCLA Study Shows One-Third of Drug Ads in Medical Journals Do Not Contain References Supporting Medical Claims

Researchers also determined the funding sources of research cited in the ads. The study is published in the Feb. 15 issue of the Canadian Medi...

Elusive HIV shape change revealed; Key clue to how virus infects cells

... answer." One of the lab's first steps will be to determine which shape of gp120 ?bound to the CD4 receptor, or unbound ?is recognized by a person's antibodies. gp120's shape change is an important "escape mechanism" for HIV, allowing the virus to bind to and enter a cell before the immune system can "see" it...

Newly-discovered class of genes determines ?and restricts ?stem cell fate

... that this is a new family of genes--they can both determine the cell type, but also put the breaks on differentiation," says Epstein. "We have named them pangenes, after the Greek god Pan and Peter Pan, who were able to orchestrate complex events while never growing old." Epstein thinks that this concept may...
