Predicting progression of common cancers

...t Stanford University examined the gene expression profile of fibroblasts responding to serum in cell culture--a process that shares certain features with wound healing. Fibroblasts are involved in wound healing, and serum is encountered in the body where blood leaks out of blood vessels (such as sites of in...

...cil. Determining the weight, center of balance and profile of a vehicle being transported is critical to avoiding crashes such as the one that occurred in June 2002 involving an Air Force MC-130H. The seven-month project funded by the Department of Defense began in November. "When we're done, we'll have a hi...

Profiling the genes that make stem cells

... a first step towards characterizing the molecular profile of stem cells, based on a comprehensive database of genes expressed in mouse early embryos and stem cells. Arguing that a broad understanding of these molecular determinants requires a broad selection of cell types, the scientists combined new gen...

Newly identified genes may help predict outcome in childhood leukemia

...he new name of OPAL1. "Studies to profile gene expressions in cancers like leukemia are very timely because physicians still need to better predict therapeutic responses," said Ronald Hoffman, M.D., President of the American Society of Hematology. "While we can already use a combination of ...

UCLA study sheds new light on island evolution

Given the numbers and frequencies of physical and genetic differences among lizard populations, they determined that lizards were moving between islands. Next, the researchers sought to explain this unusual flow of genetic material ...

A number of the critical technologies required for the success of this ambitious endeavour have yet to be developed in Europe, e.g. re-entry of spacecraft arriving from at high velocity from deep space. As a...

Clock cells, tumor suicide, tailored therapies among subjects of AACR-NCI-EORTC Conference

The data on specific genes of interest were validated using an additional technique called real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction, or RT- PCR, which supported the primary array findin...

Zadaxin in triple therapy shows 61% response for hepatitis C non-responders

...A. As in all previous ZADAXIN studies, the safety profile was excellent without significant drug related side effects or toxicities. During the course of this study, patients will receive 12 months of triple therapy (ZADAXIN 1.6 mg/bi-weekly plus pegylated interferon alfa-2a 180 mcg/week and ribavirin 1,000...
