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

...rom other groups, confirm that in situations where residual disease remains, adjuvant chemotherapy alone in high-risk breast cancer patients is suboptimal and that the addition of locoregional radiation therapy is important to achieve the highest cure rate," the authors write. In an editorial, Timothy Whelan...

...were found in the two genomes. After adjusting for residual errors of predictions with EST data, the number of genes is estimated to be between 30,000 to 40,000. Among them, only 2-3% genes are unique to any one of the two strains. Even though the genetic difference between the two strains is small, there ar...

Some are made from the same material used to make surgical sutures. They will incorporate as "cargo" whatever biological materia...

Old drug, new tricks: Prospects for slashing the impact of malaria

...EHI, says, "There seems to be a totally unexpected residual immunological effect when children are given this tablet as a preventative rather than as a post-infection treatment for malaria. While the drug itself dissipates in the bloodstream over a few days, it appears to enable the immune system to re-energi...
