OHSU-VAMC study sheds light on estrogen's benefit for MS

... frequently in females than in males. But the link between pregnancy and MS has been hotly debated. In 1998, scientists in France went a step closer to putting the issue to rest when they conducted the first large study aimed at assessing pregnancy and delivery on the course of the disease. The group found t...

Critically endangered monkey species plummets more than 50 percent since 1994

Nitrogen oxide (NOx = NO + NO2) is an important component of tropospheric chemistry, which catalyzes ozone production and influences hydroxyl radicals, the "detergent" of the atmosphere...

Images reveal how rotavirus - leading cause of diarrhea - enters cells

...s. Rotavirus infects almost all children, usually between 6 months and 2 years of age, and causes gastroenteritis that is sometimes severe enough to require hospitalization. The virus kills about 440,000 children each year, mainly in developing countries. The only licensed vaccine, RotaShield, was pulled f...

At dissolved oxygen concentrations between 0.5 and 4 ppm, the team found no oxygen-using bacteria at work digesting PCBs in sediments taken from the Grasse River in upstate New York. These findings will complicate in situ bioremediation efforts. ENVR 37. Statistical method to evaluate the oc...

The research team ultimately hopes to coax bacteria with a preference for PCBs into becoming more dominant life-forms in sediments. Future studies that modify nutrients in sediments from...

Genetic clues found for common congenital brain disorder

Thanks to a productive collaboration between clinical and basic scientists, researchers from the University of Chicago have identified the first genetic cause of one of the most common birth defects of the brain, Dandy-Walker malformation (DWM). Infants with this disorder, about one in 10,000 ...
