First-ever Compounds To Target Only Metastatic Cells Are Highly Effective Against Breast, Prostate, And Colon Cancers

...g surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation to excise or shrink the primary tumor. "However, in too many cases it's simply impossible to completely remove the tumor," Dr. Huang explained. "So recently the idea of targeting cell migration -- metastasis -- has become an alternative strategy that's gained a lot of ...

New Treatment Rivals Chemotherapy For Lymphoma, Study Finds

... years. "Strong evaporation of the lake, enough to shrink it substantially in volume and make it more saline would have been expected to result in large excursions in d18O and minor element concentrations," Kieniewicz said.

Potential treatments for neurofibromatosis

...th continuing treatment, they hope the tumors will shrink or die from lack of blood vessel support. Neurofibromatosis gets its name from neurofibromas, the disfiguring and often painful tumors that grow along nerve coverings and form on or under the skin. In most patients, the tumors begin to appear in ado...

Mice brains shrink during winter, impairing some learning and memory

The brains of one species of mouse actually shrink during the winter, causing the mice to have more difficulty with some types of learning, a new study found. The results showed that, during the short days of winter, white-footed mice had impaired spatial memory ?the mental map that helps them remem...

Sudden change in social status triggers genetic response in male fish, study finds

'Pinball protons' created by ultraviolet rays and other causes can lead to DNA damage

...eakthrough would allow small electronic devices to shrink even further, but how the electrical properties of DNA would work in such a context is not yet understood. The UGA research adds important knowledge about how so-called "deprotonated" DNA base pairs work and could be important in creating "DNA wire."...

Surprise finding for stretched DNA

...h the radius of the DNA double-helix is allowed to shrink as the molecule is stretched. The model consists of an elastic rod that is wrapped around its outer surface by a stiff wire, analogous to DNA's sugar-phosphate backbone.
