Chemists create 'Superbowl' molecule; May lead to better health

... than their predecessors and show more promise for wider applications." "I wanted a name for our compounds which acknowledged this and recognized their larger size and shape," says Sherburn. "'Superbowl' was perfect since it conjures up ?for me at least ?the image of a sports stadium, which the molecules ...

New Breast Cancer Test Could Save Lives

...dense breast tissue, and therefore can reach a far wider section of women than X-ray mammography can. Women below 50 in particular will benefit from this new test, which is much more reliable than X-rays at detecting cancer in this age group. The test is also a much more comfortable procedure than X-rays ...

Novel ultrafast laser detection of cancer cells also may improve understanding of stem cells

...e leukemia." Naviaux looks forward to examining a wider population of cancer cells to validate the method, combining the resources of his Center with Sandia's laser expertise. A project proposal has been filed with Sandia to support collaborative work between the unique research capabilities of UCSD and ...

RNA project to create language for scientists worldwide

Low level of extinction during ice age linked to adaptability

...ulated almost entirely with those who lived over a wider geographic area," Powell said. "What I found is that the uniquely low global rates of evolution and extinction for brachiopods during the late Paleozoic ice age were caused by the loss and lack of recovery of those that had existed in narrow latitudi...

NASA study finds snow melt causes large ocean plant blooms

While on trail of dioxin, scientists pinpoint cancer target of green tea

...e thesis by student Christine Palermo is part of a wider research project led by toxicologist Thomas A. Gasiewicz, Ph.D., whose decades-long studies of the harmful effects of dioxin ultimately led his group to explore the protective effects of green tea. While it's been reported that green tea protects peo...

Bugs, even 'bad' ones, can be educationally beneficial, new book says

...stward to Nebraska and Louisiana. Other pests with wider ranges, such as disease-toting mosquitoes, produce-feasting fruit flies and sap-sucking aphids, also are featured. The history of how many insects were spread to the United States also is discussed. For example, in 1869, the gypsy moth (Lymantria di...

New book explains antibiotic resistance for a broad audience

...nced degrees as its audience. We wanted to reach a wider audience, but we didn't want to exclude scientists, especially those who work in areas in which information about antibiotics might not have been part of their training," says Salyers. Revenge of the Microbes has a list price of $29.95 and can be or...

Scientists discover global pattern of big fish diversity in open oceans

...s suggest that tuna and billfish are indicators of wider patterns of diversity. The emerging global hotspots map is a product of oceanographic patterns, but also of history, showing the distribution of big fish though space and time. It reveals that some areas recognized today as good fishing are perhaps ...
