New study to compare digital, film mammography in massive $26.5 million effort to save womens lives
...igital mammography costs more, fewer callbacks and extra
office visits could save money and lessen patients concerns, Pisano said. As part of this study, we also plan to study cost effectiveness and the impact of false positives on womens quality of life. Dr. Daniel Sullivan, who is coordinating the trial ...

With first comparative look at human and mouse DNA, joint genome institute team confirms gene estimate
... the type of genes that tend to duplicate, or make extra
copies, over time. These genes include zinc finger genes, which produce proteins that control the activity levels of other genes; olfactory receptor genes, which are responsible for the sense of smell; and the genes encoding receptors for pheromo...
Manipulating a single gene dramatically improves regeneration in adult neurons: Finding may lead to new approaches for treating brain and spinal cord damage
