MGH researchers confirm that bone marrow restores fertility in female mice
...eport in the August 1 Journal of Clinical Oncology verifies
that donor marrow can restore fertility in female mice through an as-yet unidentified mechanism. While donor-derived egg cells or oocytes were observed in the ovaries of marrow recipients, all pups born were from the recipients own eggs. Consiste...
New technology makes clinical research more precise
...cs have joined forces to develop a technology that verifies
whether certain proteins induce an immune response in humans. The collaboration between VIB and AlgoNomics has yielded a biological test that supplements the current computer simulations. The additional data enable a more precise determination of the...
Study in Royal Society journal on world's only horned rodent
...tter combat ectoparasites early in the season, and verifies
that these males loose body condition much more rapidly than males that are poorer at such immune defence. Furthermore, these males seem to be more susceptible to secondary infections by blood parasites, but still have higher reproductive success. C...
New law for resolution allows unprecedented sharpness in fluorescence microscopy
...ations , the Göttingen-based research team verifies
this new law with their experiments. They show that even with conventional objectives and focused light, resolutions of 16 nm are feasible. Therefore for the first time ever, it has been demonstrated experimentally that even with focused-light optics...
Cell enzyme may help suppress cancer development
...ne is a tumor suppressor gene. If further research verifies
the importance of the PTPRO gene to the cancer process, it may mean that measuring the degree of methylation of this gene in a patient's tumor will tell doctors something about the level of danger posed by that tumor or whether the tumor is respondin...
