Lycopene slows human prostate tumour growth in mice and combined with vitamin E is even better

..., one low and one high dose of synthetic vitamin E alone and a combination of low dose synthetic lycopene and vitamin E or a placebo. The researchers injected human tumour cells into the prostate of mice to see what effect the lycopene and vitamin supplements would have on the tumour growth and PSA (prosta...

Researchers devise potent new tools to curb ivory poaching

...tamps, used for document signatures. The cylinders alone were worth more than $6 million. The new methods developed by Wasser's team can show generally where such ivory came from, alerting authorities to specific areas where added enforcement is needed to curb poaching. Wasser and his colleagues extracte...

Females may be more susceptible to overindulge 'sweet tooth' cravings than males

In sedentary rats (where the running wheel was blocked), chow intake was greater in males, compared to females. In other phases, wheel running produced similar decr...

Genes expose secrets of sex on the side

...pulations. Hammer said, "That alone wouldn't say the Y chromosome is migrating more, but if just half as many males are getting their genes into the next generation on average as are females, then it implies more males are migrating to do that." The pattern the res...

New way to protect brain from stroke damage

... the researchers added. Blockers of ASIC1a, either alone or in concert with other neuroprotective methods, might therefore prove useful for stroke therapy, they said.

Unicellular organisms contribute more nitrogen to ocean that reported earlier

...is level of nitrogen fixation in the Pacific Ocean alone accounts for about 10 percent of the total global oceanic new production of biomass, according to the researchers' preliminary calculations published in the Nature paper. "This is globally important because new production in the ocean is one of the...

Embryonic stem cell therapy shows steady benefits in rebuilding infarcted heart

...schemic heart and related cerebrovascular diseases alone caused an estimated 17 million or 23.2% of deaths globally in 2000, WHO reported. A contributing cause of what some have called a pandemic is that in contrast to many other organs in the body, the heart has only a minimal capability for self-renewa...

Hopkins scientists use blood proteins to detect ovarian cancer

...andards. The new test plus CA125 as well as CA125 alone detected 83 percent (19 of 23) of the cancers. In addition, the new test plus CA125 correctly identified healthy samples 94 percent of the time (59 of 63) as compared to 52 percent (33 of 63) for CA125 alone. To verify that the candidate markers wer...

Alcohol-use and depression among pregnant and postpartum women

Future research may also target treatment strategies that address both these issues, instead of treating them separately and in isolation from each other. They may be causally linked. That is, women may en...

Protective gene may enhance vaccine responses

...," Ashton-Rickardt said. "Increasing Spi2A levels alone can increase the survival of memory T cells from the standard 5 to 10 percent up to about 40 percent. His lab has already begun to test small molecules that mimic the effects of Spi2A and could be given along with a vaccine. This finding may also...

Marijuana ingredient inhibits VEGF pathway required for brain tumor blood vessels

However, the main tumor often evades total destruction, surviving and growing again, eventually killing the patient. For this reason, researchers are actively seeking other therapeutic strategies, some of which mi...

Activated signaling pathway may predict lung cancer patients' response to gefitinib

...ier studies have found that the expression of EGFR alone does not predict whether a patient will respond to gefitinib, there are many signaling pathways that are dependent on EGFR expression. To determine whether two such pathways--called Akt and MAPK--may be involved in a patient's response to gefitinib,...

Save the rainforest - eat a tree

...ients and water. "People have thought soil alone is enough to explain why you get two different communities of plants growing on those two soil types," says Fine. "But we showed that if it wasn't for their insect enemies, it's possible the same kind of plants would grow on both soil types. The inse...

Epilepsy: Signals 'brake' in brain impaired

...bilities. Epilepsy is a common disease: in Germany alone there are 600,000 people whose nerve cells in the brain occasionally switch from healthy chaos to common mode. The result of the uncontrolled mass discharge of neurons is loss of consciousness and spastic convulsions of the muscles, during which thos...

Casanova or caveman: Scientists isolate nerve cells that choreograph male fly's courtship behavior

All the males go after her at the same time." As an example, Baker pointed to a videotape shot during the experiment in whic...

Scientists suggest framework for epigenetics in common disease

"But epigenetic marks might more easily change as cells and people age or be more easily influenced by environmental factors than the actual DNA sequence is. We ...
