First potentially clinically useful independent marker for lung cancer identified

...e repair gene will swing into action against these stray secondary cells. Because it is so early in the cancer process, it will have a good chance of repairing the damage and stopping the relapse of the cancer before the cells run out of control. If ERCC1 levels are low, there is less chance the rogue cell...

Radioactive tumbleweeds

MIGRATING ducks and stray tumbleweeds have been contaminated with radioactivity after landing fleetingly in ponds of waste water at a nuclear facility in the US. The news raises questions about the practice of leaving such ponds open to the elements. In the mid-1990s, sta...

Genetic cause of lymphedema discovered by University of Pittsburgh researchers reported in Nature Genetics

...p excess fluid as well as molecules and cells that stray from nearby blood vessels. As with other organs, development of the lymph system is tightly regulated. One protein involved in the process is VEGF-C, which binds to its receptor, VEGFR3, on the surface of cells lining lymph vessels. In response, VE...
