Alzheimer's disease to quadruple worldwide by 2050

... slower disease progression would mean more people surviving with early-stage disease symptoms. However, nearly all of that decline would be attributable to decreases in those needing costly late-stage disease treatment in 2050. The largest increase in the prevalence of Alzheimer’s will occur in Asia, where...

Want to save polar bears? Follow the ice

...nts and one sub-continent stand the best chance of surviving as the polar cap shrinks in size. To that end, the project will utilize remote sensing satellite imagery on sea ice extent and concentration since 1978 to form a picture of polar bear habitat history as well as where this habitat most likely remain i...

Over a century after disappearing, wild elk return to Ontario

New technique boosts size of proteins that can be analyzed

...he protein. Next, the mass spectrometer weighs any surviving protein and its pieces simultaneously. The top-down approach rivals the commonly used "bottom-up" approach, in which proteins are first broken down, or digested, enzymatically into smaller units of five to 20 amino acids. These pieces are then intr...

From hot springs to rice farms, scientists reveal new insights into the secret lives of archaea

...bus fumarii holds the world temperature record for surviving in waters of 113 C or 235 F, well above the boiling point. ''However, in the early '90s, it was discovered that non-extremophilic archaea were ubiquitous and abundant in the marine environment, but it was unclear exactly how these organisms were m...

Evolution and the workaround

They even show an unhealthy talent for surviving internal perturbations such as mutations that affect the function of vital genes, and they do this by evolving new mechanisms to perform old tasks. Somehow the bad guys find a workaround. That observation led Norman Pavelka, Giulia Rancati, and R...

They found that administering the drug before radiation did little to change the number of cancer stem cells, but giving the drug in conjunction with radiation appeared to halt the resistance of cancer stem cells to radiation.
