Stem cells have more reserves for DNA replication
Yale University via Phys.org
In cell division, nothing is as important as the precise replication of billions of genetic letters that make up DNA. Since this genomic integrity is so fundamental to survival, scientists had assumed that replication mechanisms operate the same way in all cells, which depend in part on molecular reserves called dormant origins.

Bacterial endocarditis increases stroke risk for longer period than previously reported
Health Canal
U.S. researchers have used a controversial cloning technique to make new, healthy, perfectly matched stem cells from the skin of patients with mitochondrial diseases in a first step toward treatment for these incurable, life-threatening conditions. A study on the technique, published in the journal Nature, showcases the latest advance in the use of somatic-cell nuclear transfer to make patient-specific stem cells that could be used to treat genetic diseases.

Cell division speeds up as part of antibody selection
Rockefeller University via ScienceDaily
In response to an infection, the immune system refines its defensive proteins, called antibodies, to better target an invader. New research has revealed two mechanisms that favor the selection of B cells capable of producing antibodies with the highest affinity for that invader.

World's largest genetic study in Iceland produced new insights into gene function and disease predisposition that could lead to new clinical laboratory tests
DARK Daily
Over the past 15 years, Iceland has managed to be at the forefront of genetic research tied to personalized medicine and new biomarkers for diagnostics and therapeutics. This is true because, as most pathologists know, Iceland has a small population that has seen little immigration over the past 1,000 years, along with a progressive government and business community.

Study questions radiation use for 'low-risk' prostate cancers
HealthDay News
Higher doses of radiation may improve survival in men with medium- and high-risk prostate cancers, but it does not do the same for those with low-risk disease, a new study suggests. As is the case with many cancers, doctors must balance the risks and side effects of radiation therapy against its potential benefits when deciding if it's right for a particular patient.
