Munich researchers discover exciting possible new application of PET imaging for ovarian cancer
...in the abdomen and pelvis. More important, several cycles
of chemotherapy are generally necessary before the tumor size changes and physicians know if the treatment was successful," he said. These results suggest that sequential FDG PET could be used to predict response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in advanc...

...ciences. "The females also experience reproductive cycles
and show age-related decline in fertility and so provide an excellent opportunity to examine the mechanisms by which females lose reproductive potential as they delay breeding." Earlier research by Dr Moore showed that female dusky roaches that were ...
Gene controlling circadian rhythms linked to drug addiction, UT Southwestern researchers find

not sleeping as much and becoming more hyperactive they also found cocaine more rewarding than control mice, demonstrated by their strong preference for the location where the drug was administered. In addition, Clock-deficient mice produced more ...

of light and dark. It is well known, from everyday experience, that adjusting to new light schedules takes several days, though the details of how this adaptation takes place are not well understood. Researchers now report findings that suggest this ...

...current Cell article. The cilia, which twirl at 10 cycles
per second, were too fast for conventional video recording and so the scientists captured their complex movement on a specially adapted high-speed video moving at 500 frames per second. "The net result is that the clockwise rotation of the cilia is c...

of freezing and thawing. In future research, Shlipak would like to conduct a clinical trial to determine if cystatin C is truly effective as a diagnostic tool. "We need to prove that before we can recommend that people use it."...

are typically called "delayed feedback cycles." Furthermore, at the evolutionarily stable state (ESS), small changes in life-history traits could create marked increases in periodicity, making the dynamics responsive to changes in the system. The stu...
