No magic tomato? Study breaks link between lycopene and prostate cancer prevention

...associated with age. Subsequent studies of the potentially protective role of lycopene have been contradictory or inconclusive, according to Peters. In a 2006 study, she and her colleagues looked at the dietary intake of more than 25 tomato-based foods, also using data from the PLCO trial, and found no overa...

Investigating the measles virus as a tool to kill multiple myeloma

... team can now move to administration of higher and potentially even more potent viral doses. The glioblastoma multiforme trial, which opened in the fall, is testing the safety of another strain of the measles virus for treatment, one that also enables biological monitoring of anti-tumor activity.

New success in engineering plant oils

...-like oil," Shanklin said. "It is fascinating ?and potentially very useful ?to know that we can change the oil composition so drastically by simple specific changes in seed oil metabolism, and that this process can occur independently from the adaptation to either tropical or temperate climates." For example,...

Heart failure: Intervention possibilities from imaging programmed cell loss

.... "This research is significant since cell loss is potentially reversible and earlier intervention could delay the development of cardiomyopathy or heart muscle disease," noted Hofstra. He indicated that additional research is needed since the study was performed on a small group of heart patients. "Heart fa...

Gene found for rare disorder may reveal new pathway in mental retardation

... may have a broader role during human development, potentially in cases of mental retardation and autism. An international team of researchers identified two genes that contribute to Cornelia deLange syndrome (CdLS), a multisystem genetic disease that affects an estimated one in 10,000 children. The disease va...

New compound prevents alcoholic behavior, relapse in animals by blocking stress response

... "This study shows the activity of a compound that potentially could be used in human subjects," says George Koob, PhD, of the Scripps Research Institute. "It moves the field over another translational barrier, closer to the day when the dark side of addiction is treated." The new findings build on previous ...
