research, we showed that some monkeys will become inhibited and freeze when they're frightened, especially when a predator is nearby and the monkey believes that it hasn't yet been discovered by the predator," Kalin says. "We observed that the greate...
Curious female rats survive tumors longer
... is the opposite of the result Cavigelli saw in an earlier
study with male rats.The males' stress hormones were lower in the curious rodents. "These results suggest that both elevated and dampened stress hormone production may be associated with disease resilience or accelerated aging," says the Penn State r...
MRI better than current standard in assessing neoadjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer
... said Dr. Yeh. "In the future, we hope to use MRI earlier
in the chemotherapy treatment to determine if the toxic therapy is reducing the tumor size. If it's not working, we can perhaps change the drug that's being used--in fact tailor treatment for each patient," she said....
Studies address issues of risk and survival in rapidly increasing GI cancers

than previously known. Esophageal cancer is three to four times more common among men than women and about 50 percent more common among African Americans than among whites. Because esophageal cancer is usually diagnosed at a late stage, most people...

trials revealed that the officers were more likely mistakenly shoot at an unarmed Black suspect than an unarmed White suspect. But in the later trails the officers were similarly conservative in their decision to fire at Black and White suspects. "...

New imaging technologies can enhance orthopaedic outcomes

research, Chen's team discovered several processes that they believed "locked up" the optic nerve's ability to regenerate. The first lock, they found, was the turning off of a specific gene BCL-2 which, when turned on, activates growth and regenera...
