CSIRO scientists join fight to save 'Tassie devil'

...he cause of Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD) and possibly develop a test to identify infected animals. DFTD is infectious and is thought to be passed between animals by biting when, for example, devils compete for food. Once the cancer becomes visible and spreads internally through the body, the animal ...

Caribbean frogs started with a single, ancient voyage on a raft from South America

...d to be extinct because of habitat degradation and possibly other causes such as climate change. A recent global assessment of amphibians found that the Caribbean Islands have the highest proportion of amphibian species threatened with extinction. Hedges and coauthor William Duellman, a professor emeritus o...

Salty oceans provide early warning for climate change

...ly in less than a decade or two. Ocean water can’t possibly travel this fast (it takes nearly a century for a parcel of water to move from the South Atlantic to the North Atlantic). Instead the scientists think that energy is transferred through the ocean along a deep pressure wave. “The surge of salt generat...

Surprising origin of cell's internal highways

...ellular mechanism that may guide cell movement and possibly cancer cell invasion. Microtubules are the largest of the three main types of filaments that make up the cytoskeleton -- a web of microscopic fibers inside the cell. They form when two globular proteins, alpha- and beta-tubulin, polymerize in...

Maggots rid patients of MRSA

...rs, with the rate doubling in a three year period, possibly due to overuse of antibiotics and the selection of broad rather than narrow-spectrum antibacterial agents. This led to their first study, funded by Central Manchester and Manchester Children's University Hospitals NHS Trust (CMMC) Chairman's Prize Aw...

Corals -- More complex than you?

The humble coral may possess as many genes ?and possibly even more ?than humans do. And remarkably, although it is very distant from humans in evolutionary terms, it has many of the immune system genes that protect people against disease. In fact, it is possible some of these were pioneered by corals. ...

Premature births may be linked to seasonal levels of pesticides and nitrates in surface water

...otential pandemic effects on pregnancy outcome and possibly on child development is a momentous observation, which hopefully will help transform the way humanity cares for its world," said James Lemons, M.D., Hugh McK. Landon Professor of Pediatrics at the IU School of Medicine. Dr. Lemons is director of the ...

Molecule that destroys bone also protects it, new research shows

...for IL-17 could be an effective therapy for RA and possibly for other autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, colitis, psoriasis and lupus. The effects of an IL-17 deficiency in periodontal disease, however, were unknown, so Gaffen’s lab set out to investigate. "I predicted these mice without...

Diminishing dinosaur steps saved by laser and laptop

...late Cretaceous dinosaurs, including sauropods and possibly predatory theropod dinosaurs. The portable system, which is powered by a battery, works by rotating and firing laser beams, which reflect off the quarry faces back to a receiver. The device then cross references the reflections with a built-in dig...

Parasites' impact goes beyond host to affect ecosystem

...says Byers, noting that other snails, isopods, and possibly near-shore fish feed on ephemeral algae. "It’s suggestive that these non-lethal impacts of parasites have influential effects that can trickle down to affect other residents of the ecosystem." Byers?and Wood’s study signals an increasing apprecia...

The quest for an effective HIV vaccine presents new possibilities, challenges

...eficial if it prolongs the disease-free period and possibly even reduces virus transmission. If such a vaccine is shown to be successful and is eventually licensed, it would need to be delivered as part of a comprehensive, multifaceted HIV prevention program. ...

Fused nasal bones helped tyrannosaurids dismember prey

...scle numbers down because we thought they couldn't possibly be that powerful, but Tyrrell museum colleagues showed that a T. rex's lower jaw could apply 200,000 newtons of force—that's like lifting a semi-trailer," he said. "All of the T. rex's features came together to give it the strongest bite of any land ...

Discovery of new cave millipedes casts light on Arizona cave ecology

Studies force new view on biology of flavonoids

...e. Because of this, there would be no benefit ?and possibly some risk ?to taking dietary supplements that might inject large amounts of substances the body essentially sees as undesirable foreign compounds. Numerous studies in the United States and Europe have documented a relationship between adequate die...

Heart failure: Intervention possibilities from imaging programmed cell loss

He anticipates that this research...

Changes in amino acids in the 1918 influenza virus cut transmission

...ntists develop ways to break the disease cycle and possibly help reduce the risk for a potential pandemic. While flu pandemics occur every 10 to 40 years, the factors that lead to the emergence of pandemic viruses are not well understood, explains study co-author Adolfo García-Sastre, PhD, Professor of Micro...

Study finds antibiotic resistance in poultry even when antibiotics were not used

...try come to the farm harboring resistant bacteria, possibly acquired as they were developing in their eggs. "The resistances don't necessarily come from antibiotic use in the birds that we eat," Lee said, "so banning antibiotic use on the farm isn't going to help. You have to put in some work before that."...
