Cryoablation -- A new treatment option for some kidney tumor patients
...raphy (CT) or ultrasound. The Mayo study findings show
that cryoablation can be used for some larger tumors with simultaneous operation of multiple cryoprobes guided by ultrasound. The ablation margin (the edge of the frozen tissue) can be accurately monitored with CT, to ensure that the total tumor mas...

UCLA: How does your brain respond when you think about gambling or taking risks?
...associate professor of psychology. "The people who show
much more neural sensitivity to losses relative to gains are the same people who are very reluctant to gamble unless they are offered extremely favorable gambles. The people who are about as sensitive to losses as gains neurologically are the ones wh...
CSIRO imagery shows Outer Great Barrier Reef at risk from river plumes
...the inner reef corals. Images captured by CSIRO show
large plumes of terrestrial material following unconventional patterns and travelling quite fast as far as 65 to 130km, to the outer reef and, in some instances, travelling along the outer reef and re-entering the reef. The plumes are the result ...
Clues to gene expression in cystic fibrosis will guide research

how a small percentage of CF sufferers with a rare genetic stop mutation responded positively to gentamicin treatment. Aleksander Edelman and Isabelle Sermet-Gaudelus of Faculté de Médicine Necker in Paris led collaborators from several French insti...
Reversing cancer cells to normal cells
...ular biology in recent years, the team was able to show
that the aggressive melanoma cells secrete Nodal, a critical component underling the two-way communication between tumor cells and the embryonic microenvironment. Nodal is an embryonic factor (also called a morphogen) responsible for maintaining the ...
Biologists call for better choice of model organisms in 'evo-devo'
...ganisms to maximise phylogenetic spread is nice to show
diversity, but it doesn’t necessarily lead to new general insights about evolution. "Choosing new models in this way leaves it entirely a matter of chance whether a new model will illuminate a particular evo-devo theme. "Instead, we urge worke...
Major link in brain-obesity puzzle found
...ic, diet and hormone techniques, they were able to show
that the action of SH2B1 regulates body weight, the action of the metabolic signaling molecules leptin and insulin, and the use of energy from food. It even moderated the impact of a high-fat diet on body weight. The experiments were performed in...
'Exercise pill' switches on gene that tells cells to burn fat
...mal mice that receive the drug to switch on PPAR-d show
increased fat burning and resistance to weight gain, but they do not show
increased endurance. Dr. Evans says this suggests the delta switch can operate in different modes, a...
Chromosomal microarray analysis proves accurate
...e, there are portions of the genetic material that show
imbalances because they are duplicated or deleted abnormally with gains and losses of genetic information. "If these changes are big enough, they can cause significant disabilities," said Beaudet. The technique used is also much more efficient,...
'The eyes have it' -- Autism research yields surprising results

that children and adolescents with autism may have difficulty reading mental states from facial expressions but our results suggest that this is not due to an inability to interpret information from the eyes. "Surprisingly, autistic children seeme...
Overfishing large sharks impacts entire marine ecosystem, shrinks shellfish supply
...2003, which used data from commercial fisheries to show
rapid declines in the great sharks of the northwest Atlantic since the mid-1980s. Now, by examining a dozen different research surveys from 1970-2005 along the eastern U.S. coast, the research team has found that their original study underestimated t...

NYU scientists identify how development of different species uses same genes with distinct features

that it takes several mRNAs localized in the egg to achieve the same functions in wasps as bicoid does in flies. Two of these genes, which are found in most species of insects, are orthodenticle. Orthodenticle performs the anterior promoting function...
Widely used hepatitis B drug spurs HIV drug resistance

that entecavir is no different from any other that has been shown to be active against HIV - it breeds resistance rapidly, despite its ability to reduce the amount of HIV in the body," says senior study author and infectious disease specialist Chloe ...
The great escape -- fleeing fish fall in line

that fish maintained under the same conditions, with no differential treatment, show
a tendency for keeping a relatively fixed chronological order of escape. This implies that in a giv...

whether the agent being studied has a causal effect on health. The Netherlands study ?called the Zutphen Study ?involved a cohort of 1,373 men born between 1900 and 1920 who were surveyed in detail about alcohol consumption seven times over 40 year...
