...laxseed oil. "Most of the margarine and vegetable spreads that we use have high levels of omega-6s. The cooking oils generally have high levels of omega-6, except canola and flaxseed oil," Watkins says. "So if you are concerned about the amount of fat in your diet, you shouldn't buy tuna fish packed in soyb...

PET tracer detects early prostate cancer

...United States. Detecting prostate cancer before it spreads is a key challenge facing physiciansand can have a major impact on patient survival. In research undertaken in Japan by Dr. Nobuyuki Oyama, MD, PhD, 18 patients with prostate cancer confirmed by biopsy underwent positron emission tomography (PET) sca...

UCSF prion finding in mice leads team to urge similar study in cattle

...age that causes cell degeneration. The destruction spreads quickly through the brain, generally causing death in less than a year. One explanation for prions propagating at high levels only in the brain and lymphatic tissue has been that there simply might be more normal prion protein in these regions, and t...

Dogs key to understanding prostate cancer

...ent. Unlike any other cancer, when prostate cancer spreads to the bones as it does in 80 percent of all advanced cases it actually stimulates new bone to grow, not erodes it. Weve really been stumped on how to study this, says Dr. Tom Rosol, a veterinarian in The Ohio State Universitys Comprehensive Canc...

UCLA scientists develop prostate cancer tracking system

...rking on could theoretically find such tiny cancer spreads in patients much earlier than is possible now, and allow doctors to treat these metastases sooner, when the chances of success are greater. "This targeted gene delivery method will help us to catch a metastasis when it is still a small group of cells...

...ked right back up the hole into the atmosphere. It spreads around the Earth as a rock vapor cloud that eventually condenses and forms droplets that solidify into spherules, which rain back down onto the surface." The meteorite that led to the dinosaur extinction produced spherule deposits around the world t...

Rice researchers develop first fully automatic method to track 3-D movement of cancer cells

...t. 16, 2002 -- Cancer researchers know the disease spreads from organ to organ in a non random pattern, but they are unable to predict exactly how cancer will spread, in part because of the limited tools available to study cancer cell migration in a controlled laboratory setting. In groundbreaking new resear...

Rabies vaccinations could help save Ethiopian wolf

...suggests that when a wolf gets rabies, the disease spreads to about 90% of its pack. In the early 1990s, a rabies outbreak cut the largest Ethiopian wolf population by two-thirds. This population (Bale Mountain) has recovered, thanks to a dog vaccination program that began there in 1996. To see if disease m...

While eating infected meat easily spreads Toxoplasma from animal to animal, related parasites have highly restricted life cycles and require that a specific carnivore eat a specific herbivore for transmission to occur. Toxoplasma also is unusual in that worldwide there are only three main s...

Human gene affects memory

... cultured neurons, they discovered that "val" BDNF spreads throughout the cell and into the branch-like dendrites that form synapses, while "met" BDNF mostly clumps inside the cell body without being transported to the synapses. To regulate memory function, BDNF must be secreted near the synapses. "We were ...
