Scientists find potential stem cells in amniotic fluid a new source?

...the researchers examined amniotic fluid taken from routine diagnostic amniocentesis on pregnant women. Genetic tests on 11 independent samples revealed Oct-4 mRNA (messenger RNA) in five of the samples.

Ki-67 biomarker a strong predictor of outcome for prostate cancer patients

...istent threshold for the application of Ki-67 on a routine basis has not been previously established. In this study, when greater than 7.1% of the tumor cells stained for Ki-67, there was a significantly increased risk of distant metastasis and death due to prostate cancer. Furthermore, Pollack adds, Ki-6...

Pack rat middens give unique view on evolution and climate change in past million years

.... "Our study suggests that species adapt to handle routine climate change, and only something out of the ordinary initiates significant evolutionary change. It takes a long time for a species to change, and even the major climatic change 800,000 years ago wasn't dramatic enough to cause the origin of a new s...

Anti-platelet drug blocks bone metastases in mice
