...esult in beach closures and health advisories when detected at unsafe levels in the ocean also have been detected in the sand, according to a recent study by a team of Stanford scientists. Published in the July 1...

Can hemp help the everglades?

...nal compound and its subsequent products are being detected in surface water and shallow groundwater. This highlights the need to determine the extent of water risks during atrazine use and to develop conservation practices to minimize negative affects....

UF, French scientists seek test to detect gene doping in athletes

...nes such as EPO are prohibited by WADA and readily detected through drug tests, performance-driven athletes have begun searching for stealthier and more powerful alternatives. The next variation of boosting red blood cell production is to actually inject the EPO gene itself, which would cause increases in...

...y biochemical changes in the devils which could be detected in their hair before the disease becomes apparent. If we find a consistent change, it could lead to the development of a test which will allow detection of the cancer before the tumours become evident, he says. This would make any quarantine strate...

Screening for fragile skin

... "We have also received overseas submissions and detected carriers from several countries, so it is a world wide problem." Dr Berg and her colleagues at EMAI are consequently recommending screening of all breeding stock, or at the very minimum, screening of all sires. "The latter is the first step in ma...

Particle emissions from laser printers might pose health concern

... names. Most of the printer-generated particles detected were ultrafine, Morawska said, explaining that such contaminants are easily inhaled into the smallest passageways of the lungs where they could pose a significant health threat. Previous studies have focused on emissions of volatile organic compound...

Nanotechnology helps scientists make bendy sensors for hydrogen vehicles

... a space shuttle, for example, could not be easily detected by individual rigid detectors because the locations of pinholes are not predetermined, said Sun. However, laminating a dense array of flexible sensors on the surfaces of the pipe can detect any hydrogen leakage prior to diffusion to alert control uni...

Reading a face is tricky business

...s facial expression of fear, may be preferentially detected so as to alert the individual to make an appropriate response, Paller said. Yet participants only noticed the surprise faces. When asked about the stimuli, volunteers were surprised to learn that prime faces with other expressions briefly appeared...

Negative effects of plastic's additive blocked by nutrient supplements

Since BPA can be detected at some level in almost all humans, the current findings could hold the promise of reducing disease susceptibility by using nutritional approaches, Jirtle said. The ability of some agents to counteract the epigenetic effects of a toxin, in this case ...

Waters off Washington state only second place in world where glass sponge reefs found

... seafloor in copious amounts. Methane has not been detected by Canadian scientists near their glass sponge reefs, thus the Washington margin reefs could represent a new type of ecosystem on the shelf, one where the abundant biology is fueled by methane gas derived from ancient carbon in the sediments, Johnson...

...changes in the surrounding environment that can be detected by MRI, without the need to administer an additional substance. As recently described in the journal Nature Medicine, ferritin has so far successfully broadcast live reports via MRI detection from the liver, endothelial cells and even during fetal...

Call for EU to launch major project to map out all our proteins

...redicted protein coding genes than experimentally detected proteins. The shortfall is significant in almost all organisms there are only about 65 per cent as many proteins as had been predicted through analysis of the genome. This is a surprise because each gene had been understood to code for a protein on ...

Detecting transmissibility of avian influenza virus in human households

...n-to-human transmission in the human population is detected as quickly as possible, says van Boven. This paper provides a method of doing so, using data that are easily collected for most infectious diseases....

Mucins stand guard against gut infections

Expert to provide update after 'worst tomato virus' hits California

...go, CA. In March 2007, the destructive virus was detected in tomato plants and whiteflies from a greenhouse in California's Imperial Valley. Tomato yellow leaf curl virus is distributed primarily by the whitefly, Bemisia tabaci. It spreads quickly from plant to plant within minutes; especially if the whitef...

A decisive step toward a cure for insulin dependent diabetes

We believe there are approximately 15 genes involved in insulin-dependent diabetes; our study proved that high-dens...

ACMG recognizes progress made in newborn screening

For each of the core diseases, an accurate test is currently available and there are demonstrated benefits of early detection and treatment. Further, ACMG has recently made available to all pediatricians and newborn screening progra...
