Molecular signature may identify cisplatin-sensitive breast tumors

...Since these so-called "triple-negative" tumors are treatable with neither Herceptin nor antiestrogen drugs, the prognosis for patients with the tumors has been poor. Triple-negative tumors are the most common subtype found in patients with mutations in the BRCA1 gene, but they also appear in women without alt...

Treatment can even restore completely normal cognitive function to some of those affected. The study looked at 178 subjects in Kampala, Uganda...

MRSA toxin acquitted: Study clears suspected key to severe bacterial illness

...hy people develop CA-MRSA skin infections that are treatable whereas others infected with the same strain develop severe infections or die. Scientists had recognized a connection between MRSA strains that contain PVL and the increased occurrence and severity of CA-MRSA disease, though no one had directly te...

Elasticity imaging identifies cancers and reduces breast biopsies

...s the best way to combat cancer at its early, most treatable stage. While mammography is the standard breast cancer screening exam, screening with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or ultrasound may be more effective for high-risk patients or women with dense breast tissue. MRI and ultrasound depict more breast...

Researchers unveil strategy for creating actively-programmed anti-cancer molecules

...metastatic breast cancer. Breast cancer can be a treatable disease, but only if diagnosed early. Since the prognosis grows considerably worse once the cancer has spread to other organs, the prevention of metastasis-the phenomenon in which cancer cells separate from a tumor mass, move through the bloodstream,...

'Prosthetic' retinal cells let blind mice see light

...ch of the many inherited retinal diseases might be treatable by using the technique. "The remodeling of inner retinal neurons triggered by photoreceptor degeneration has raised some concerns for the retinal-based rescue strategy after the death of photoreceptors," wrote Pan and colleagues. "However, retinal de...

NIH launches comprehensive effort to explore cancer genomics

...d to new tests to detect cancer in its early, most treatable stages; new therapies to target cancer at its most vulnerable points; and, ultimately, new strategies to prevent cancer." NCI and NHGRI announced today at a news conference in Washington, D.C., that they have each committed $50 million over three ye...

New antibody shows promise as cure for anthrax

...e antibiotics." Anthrax infection is successfully treatable only in its early stages, when antibiotics can be used to kill anthrax bacteria. Before 2002, nothing was available to treat the large amounts of deadly toxin released by those bacteria, which is what leads to death in patients with late-stage anthra...

Research casts doubt on circulating stem cells

...all the body's muscles, appeared to be potentially treatable ?indeed, by the simple means of transplanting healthy bone marrow. For boys, DMD is the second most common hereditary disease.

Leprosy genome tells story of human migrations, French researchers report in Science

...is still a source of social stigma. The disease is treatable with a combination of antibiotics. The bacterium has long puzzled researchers because its genome is filled with an unusually high proportion of damaged, nonfunctional genes. This is probably why it grows exceedingly slowly, making it difficult for r...
