High HPV concentrations combined with smoking significantly raise risks of cervical cancer

...en HPV and smoking that would greatly increase the likelihood of women developing cervical cancer if they are HPV-positive smokers. This would put them in a risk group worthy of careful monitoring." The study, which also may partly explain why some women may not get cervical cancer despite smoking behavior or ...

Genetic study of Neanderthal DNA reveals early split between humans and Neanderthals

... nuclear DNA from the Neanderthal suggests the low likelihood of it having occurred at any appreciable level." According to the authors, "If Neanderthal admixture did indeed occur, then [it would] manifest in our data as an abundance of low-frequency derived alleles in Europeans where the derived allele matche...

Neanderthal genome sequencing yields surprising results and opens a new door to future studies

... nuclear DNA from the Neanderthal suggests the low likelihood of it having occurred at any appreciable level." With their metagenomic library-based approach to genome sequencing and analysis, Rubin and Noonan believe that in the future, scientists will be able to study specific sequences within the Neandertha...

Malaria poses additional risks for first-time mothers

Vaccination with embryonic stem cells prevents lung cancer in mice

...umans at high risk for development of cancer. The likelihood of this happening is more a question for the US Food and Drug Agency than for us.

Common ancestry of bacterium and plants could be key to an effective new treatment for chlamydia

...ibited by penicillin. This discovery points to the likelihood that, if researchers could find an inhibitor for L,L-diaminopimelate aminotransferase they would have a new antibiotic that would target Chlamydia. Chlamydia trachomatis is a bacteria that is responsible for a common STD. If untreated, Chlamydia in...

Low levels of neurotransmitter serotonin may perpetuate child abuse across generations

NASA snow data helps maintain nation's largest, oldest bison herd

...lease of captive bison is timed to ensure a higher likelihood the animals will remain in the park. Knowing when and where the snow will melt is key to whether the bison will stay within park boundaries. To better inform the management team, park officials use a model of snowpack dynamics developed by Watson and...

Neuron cell stickiness may hold key to evolution of the human brain

...f human-specific sequence changes that have a high likelihood of turning genes on and off." Homo sapiens share more than 98 percent of their genome with their chimpanzee cousins, but the final products of those genomes are quite dissimilar. Nowhere are these differences more pronounced than in the brain, wh...

"MMP-2 and MMP-9 contribute to the aggressiveness of these tumors," Yang said. "It isn't clear exactly how they are operating but they may work with VEGF to facilitate blood vessel gr...

American research finds twins more likely to have premature menopause

So, even though they are non-identical, one or both twins born to these mothers may be inheriting her tendency to early menopause." With identical twins, the explanation fo...

This will allow a deeper understanding of how cells are organised and will be of particular importance in understanding and predicting cells whose structure becomes altered as a first sign ...
