Missing genes may help explain why plague bacteria are so deadly

...is that tended to suppress its lethality, possibly giving it an evolutionary leg up on its more benign cousins. Evolutionary pressures may have also made the bacterium better adapted to colonize the flea, its preferred vector (means of transmission), and thus facilitate the flea-borne spread of the disease....

The team also tried giving a broad-spectrum cathepsin inhibitor to some cancerous mice and found that it slowed tumor development both in early and late stages of growth with no apparent side effects. The National Cancer Institute has since fast-tracked the inhibitor into stud...

OneWorld Health compiles comprehensive state of infectious diarrhea treatments, potential solutions

...cing infant mortality by about half. ORT involves giving a dilute solution of sugar and salt orally to children to replace both the water and vital nutrients (electrolytes) lost in diarrhea; it does not treat the diarrhea itself. Parents, out of frustration that ORT does not reduce stool output, purchase ...

Nevada researcher re-ignites mammal reproduction debate

...if the animal's living conditions aren't suitable, giving birth to a female would better ensure the animal's genetic success in the long term. Daughters of less healthy mothers would out-reproduce sons in poorer conditions because males that are unsuccessful in having mates have few offspring while most fem...
