Fish no exception to trend in marine-organism disease

...: "This is the first quantitative study to provide solid evidence that rates of disease do seem to be increasing in the ocean. It has been hard to tell if disease is increasing because we didn't have proper baselines. It's been much tougher to understand the frequency of marine disease than it is to monito...

DNA research highlights prostate cancer mechanisms

...line edition of Carcinogenesis, provides the first solid evidence that the normal repair process is altered in prostate cancer cells, possibly leading to a cascade of events that culminate in further DNA damage and cellular dysfunction. Free radicals---highly reactive molecules generated by both normal me...

Best way to clean up toxic plumes? Give 'em a pill

...s it was before." So he and his colleagues created solid forms, or chunks, of organic material that contain potassium permanganate. When buried in wet soil, these chunks slowly dissolve over a matter of weeks and months. These chunks allow researchers to better control the distribution of potassium permang...

NJIT chemists pave way for cheap, usable field test for polluted, toxic, water, air, food

Tadpoles and tumors

...w that FAP is present in about 90 percent of human solid malignancies, so that makes this protein a target well worth pursuing," Cheng said. "Antibodies have an inherent advantage in that they can specifically target FAP and not other proteins. Although the antibody we have studied so far has had only mo...

Awards honor Alt's three decades of genetic cancer research

...in mice, they get all sorts of cancers lymphomas, solid tumors, you name it," Alt says. Interestingly, simply reducing H2AX activity is enough to cause genomic instability. "You can't just think that a tumor suppressor gene has to be completely mutated or gone to contribute to cancer," he says. "We need...
