Researchers uncover mutated genes involved in lung cancer; one affects nonsmokers

... England Journal of Medicine commenting on a study headed by Dan Farber Cancer Research Center. Researchers there found a lung cancer that initially was very sensitive to gefitinib because of a mutation in the EGFR gene developed resistance to the drug because of a second EGFR mutation. The enhanced underst...

Protein delivers selenium for normal sperm development

... they are generally infertile. The research team, headed by Dr. Gary E. Olson, found that the mutant male mice lacking SEPP1 develop sperm with defective tails, similar to the sperm produced by unaltered male mice fed a low-selenium diet. Furthermore, the mutant mice do not recover normal sperm production ...
