Tibetan antelope slowly recovering, WCS says

...s became fashionable in Europe and the U.S., which fueled a black market and widespread poaching in this remote area. In the mid 1990s, Schaller estimated that perhaps 75,000 chiru remained in the wild, with as many as 20,000 falling to poachers annually. However, no comprehensive census of chiru has ever...

Ethanol vehicles pose a significant risk to human health, study finds

..., trucks, motorcycles, etc., in the United States) fueled by gasoline, versus A fleet powered by E85, a popular blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline. Deaths and hospitalizations The results of the computer simulations were striking. ''We found that E85 vehicles reduce atmospher...

Gene expression test reveals ER and HER-2 status of breast tumors

...y test that identifies whether a tumor's growth is fueled by the female hormone estrogen and the role of a growth factor receptor known as HER-2 that makes a tumor vulnerable to a specific drug. The status of these factors is now determined by pathology tests. "This is one important step towards personal...

NHGRI aims to make DNA sequencing faster, more cost effective

...ave fallen more than 50-fold over the past decade, fueled in large part by tools, technologies and process improvements developed as part of the successful project to sequence the human genome. However, it still costs around $10 million to sequence 3 billion base pairs ?the amount of DNA found in the genome...

Malaria may fuel spread of HIV in sub-Saharan Africa

...eakening of the immune system by HIV infection has fueled a rise in adult malaria-infection rates and may have facilitated the expansion of malaria in Africa," said Kublin, an HIV/AIDS scientist in the Hutchinson Center's Clinical Research Division. Using a mathematical model designed by Abu-Raddad that w...

Tulane researcher reports on origin of deadly fever outbreak

...the virus indicates that the two-year outbreak was fueled by repeated new introductions of the virus into humans from the primary reservoir, rather than simply a single introduction followed by person-to-person spread. Bausch's study enhances our understanding of Marburg virus, which the Centers for Diseas...

A new view on Lyme disease: Rodents hold the key to annual risk

...ease risk--varied significantly from year to year, fueled mostly by large fluctuations in total nymph density, which in turn depended mostly on fluctuations in abundance of acorns, mice, and chipmunks. Interestingly, though chipmunk densities are generally lower than mice, their numbers were the best predic...

Researcher gives hard thoughts on soft inheritance

... Still, recent studies in mice and rats have fueled the controversy. Richards cited "a whole new world called nutritional epigenomics," where researchers are trying to influence epigenetic information by of all things diet. In a study with mice hybrids, researchers provided pregnant moms with varyi...

'Dead zone' summer killed billions of ocean state mussels

...ng nitrogen, phosphorus and other nutrients. Often fueled by warm temperatures and a lack of circulation, this nutrient rush can cause algae blooms. When the algae dies, it sinks to the bottom, where it is consumed by bacteria ?along with dissolved oxygen. This is what happened in Narragansett Bay in the su...

Gene variation affects tamoxifen's benefit for breast cancer

...cer. Approximately 70 percent of these cancers are fueled by estrogen, many of which are treated with tamoxifen, a drug designed to block the effects of estrogen in breast tissue. The findings from this trial were derived from a large North Central Cancer Treatment Group study in which women were treated wi...

'Perception' gene tracked humanity's evolution, scientists say

...t hominid divergence from the other great apes was fueled not by the origin of new genes, but by the quickening (or slowing) of the expression of existing genes. Hahn and his colleagues at Duke University, University College London and Medical University of Vienna first became interested in primate prodyn...

NHGRI expands effort to revolutionize sequencing technologies

...NA sequencing costs have fallen more than 50-fold, fueled in large part by tools, technologies and process improvements developed as part of the successful effort to sequence the human genome. However, it still costs about $10 million to sequence 3 billion base pairs ?the amount of DNA found in the genomes ...

Oceans more vulnerable to agricultural runoff than previously thought, study finds

... suspect that many harmful blooms are artificially fueled by fertilizer runoff from farms, which dump tons of excess nitrogen into rivers that eventually flow into the sea. "There has been an international effort to try to understand the productivity of the oceans and their potential vulnerability to nitro...

Technique may allow cancer patients to freeze eggs, preserving fertility before starting treatment

...estion if it is appropriate for women with cancers fueled by estrogen, such as breast cancer. In addition, the hormone treatments require delaying the start of cancer therapy, which may not be an option for every patient. Guidelines for patients and physicians still need to be established as the technique ...

Scientists decipher genome of fungus that can cause life-threatening infections

...equence hasenabled more rapid gene identification, fueled genome wide insertionalmutagenesis approaches, and provided the foundation for the developmentand implementation of a genetic map for quantitative genetics andpopulation analysis. In addition, the accuracy of the gene annotationmakes it feasible to u...
