Study shows gene may boost smoking-related heart disease

...studied, 458 people suffered heart attacks or were newly diagnosed with heart disease, Pankow said. The final sample consisted of 400 cases and 890 others who served as controls. "Subjects already had been asked about their smoking habits and had provided a blood sample for genetic analysis, and so we loo...

Hopkins scientists link human papillomavirus (HPV) to head and neck cancer

...tudied tumors of 253 patients, ages 17 to 91, with newly diagnosed or recurring squamous cell head and neck cancer. HPV was detected in 62, or 25 percent, of the tumors and, of the HPV-positive tumors, 90 percent contained a high-risk, tumor-promoting form of the virus known as HPV-16. Somewhat unexpecte...

Carbon diem: Grants awarded to research that seizes excess carbon dioxide

...t explore unique, cost-effective ways to sequester newly produced carbon dioxide before it hits the atmosphere. Ultimately, the DOE wants to develop methods that cost only $10 per ton of carbon, equivalent to adding a fraction of a cent per kilowatt-hour to the cost of electricity. Researchers at the Idah...

Understanding of floral scents blossoms in Purdue laboratory

...plant. In snapdragon, as in most flowering plants, newly opened blossoms don't produce as much scent as mature blossoms. "These flowers aren't ready to be pollinated because they are immature, and the lack of scent makes them less attractive to pollinators," Dudareva says. Conversely, once many plants have...

UCSF research reveals how the embryo brings its heart together
