New biosensor rapidly detects deadly foodborne pathogen

...st summer, for example, a Georgia company recalled nearly 37,000 pounds of precooked chicken products that may have been contaminated by Listeria. The chicken products had been distributed to warehouses in Georgia and Arkansas, as well as to grocery stores in Maryland and New York, when the recall was issue...

NIH awards Emory and Georgia Tech $10 million for partnerships in cancer nanotechnology

...gy two new collaborative research grants, totaling nearly $10 million, to establish a multidisciplinary research program in cancer nanotechnology and to develop a new class of nanoparticles for molecular and cellular imaging. Working at the sub-atomic level, these scientists are seeking data that will link...

Award-winning INEEL probe to help safely monitor hazardous waste sites

...efit of modern record-keeping. GEOPS can penetrate nearly anything -- including hard, compacted dirt and even metal drums. To reach the depth they need, workers string together interlocking GEOPS sections which can reach 300 feet below the surface. During installation, workers lock GEOPS' hollow casing into...

Coke versus Pepsi: It's all in the head

...and Pepsi because-- even though the two drinks are nearly identical chemically and physically--people routinely strongly favor one over the other. Thus, the two soft drinks made excellent subjects for rigorous experimental studies. In their study, the researchers first determined the Coke versus Pepsi prefe...

Mechanism discovered for muscle wasting seen in diabetes, AIDS and other diseases

...ody weight, muscle mass and muscle fiber size were nearly normal. In a prevention protocol, salicylate treatment was begun during gestation. In these latter mice, body weights and muscle mass were essentially normal throughout life. The researchers also studied the effects of blocking NF-kB activation...

Amphibians in dramatic decline; Up to 122 extinct since 1980

...ata are lacking to accurately assess the status of nearly 1,300 other species, most of which scientists believe are also threatened. Amphibians are widely regarded as "canaries in the coal mine," since their highly permeable skin is more immediately sensitive to changes in the environment, including cha...

Surgeon General's report underscores the importance of new thinking on bone health

...ain and bones that break easily. Bone loss affects nearly 44 million in the United States, 80 percent of them women. Bone deterioration is responsible for 1.5 million fractures each year, resulting in as many as 300,000 deaths due to complications, yet two simple measures--exercise and calcium--can help pre...

Discovery might improve design, effectiveness of anti-cancer drugs

Inside the mass spectrometer manufactured by Bruker Daltronics, Inc., the vacuum was comparable to the vacuum found in intergalactic space...

Manipulation of epigenome turns off as many genes as it turns on

...iments, the researchers examined the expression of nearly 8,000 genes simultaneously in a colon cancer cell line (called HCT116). By studying the genetic "fingerprint" of a sample before and after demethylation, they could measure how the treatments affected the extent to which the genes' instructions were ...

Combination hormone therapy doubles breast density and quadruples risk of abnormal mammograms

...age bracket; those between 70 and 79 experienced a nearly threefold increase in breast density as compared to younger women, presumably because their breast tissue was less dense to begin with, McTiernan said. "These findings are unique in showing a sustained effect over two years and that even in older pos...

Dr. Harris receives NIH Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award

Gene linked to greater risk of heart disease in type 2 diabetes

...s and Italy. All had type 2 diabetes. In addition, nearly half of these subjects also had heart disease, as shown by heart catheterization indicating more than 50 percent blockage of at least one coronary artery. The others did not have any visible heart disease. The researchers mapped out each person's CD3...

Mice thrive despite massive genetic makeover

... DNA (sometimes called "junk DNA")--which makes up nearly 98 percent of the genome--required, or is some of it potentially disposable? "In these studies, we were looking particularly for sequences that might not be essential," said Eddy Rubin, Director of the JGI, where the work was conducted. "Nonethe...

"Our researchers produced nearly 50,000 juvenile mussels last year and can produce up to 100,000 juveniles per year depending on the availability of the species," said Neves. While propagation is one of the main objectives of the center, researchers also work on other projects. They...
