New mammal species identified in Australia

... and colleagues confirm that these differences are statistically significant. Genetic distances of 2.7% to 3% between the southern and northern populations of mountain brushtails further support their species status. Genetic data was collected last year when the scientists were investigating biological contro...

Treating precancerous breast cells may prevent onset of cancer

...ncer; NSAIDS had a marginal effect, but it was not statistically significant. Immortalization is a critical step for cancer progression and validates the use of in vitro models. More than 203,500 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed and more than 39,600 women will die in 2002, according to the American C...

Study provides direct evidence of the role of telomeres in prostate cancer development

Light to moderate drinking during pregnancy can affect adolescent growth

...that, although frequency of binge drinking was not statistically associated with reduced growth, the investigators reported that a dichotomous measure of bingeing was. Based on animal evidence, it is possible that these low level alcohol-related deficits may reflect maternal drinking on only a few days per week r...

Laboratory study explains clinical promise of anti-angiogenesis cancer drug

... ones given TM preventively developed tumors. This statistically significant disease-free survival ended, though, when the mice were taken off TM -- all of them developed tumors within two weeks. Microscope studies showed that those given TM had "microtumors" in their breast areas, suggesting that the cancer had s...

Songbird population declines linked to acid rain

The model predicts that, after statistically adjusting for several other factors (soil, vegetation, topography, thrush abundance), the probability of a wood thrush breeding is much reduced at a highly acidified site. The negative effects of acid rain might also be heightened by such factors as ...

18F-FDG PET predicts lymphoma treatment outcome

... bone marrow transplantation. The study reported a statistically significant number of false negatives in patients who had completed treatment, which contributed to its lower value as a predictor at the end of treatment. Six patients who had a false-negative FDG uptake at the completion of treatment ultimately re...

However, none of the men, who reported consuming an average of 2,300 calories daily, is believed to have been on a calorically restricted diet. "The fact that these men...

Genes, maltreatment, and the cycle of violence

Many people will have the genetic susceptibility and yet show remarkable resiliency in the face of maltreatment, going on to live constructive lives. It is well known that the only good predictor of violence is...

A laser-based spectometry screening tool may provide early and efficient detection of breast cancer

Estrogen combined with calcium and vitamin D may prevent tooth loss

The effects of estrogen on jawbone density seems to reflect an overall effect on the skeleton, since improvements in the facial bones of women on estrogen correlated with increases in the lumbar spine and femur.
