Keeping chilly lab mice warm: Key to better science?
ABC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Joseph Garner imagines how much happier and healthier lab mice would be in a kinder, gentler environment than the stark cages in chilly laboratories — and how that, in turn, might improve the outcome of research that underlies human medical advances. He has focused on a simple fact: Mice are chronically cold and suffer from thermal stress. More

Study: Heart attack victims cut risk with 2 drinks
Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
VideoBriefMen who have two drinks a day after surviving a first heart attack have a lower risk of death from heart disease than non-drinkers, Harvard researchers said, adding to evidence that moderate alcohol use may be healthy.

Sensitive blood test catches recurring breast cancer year earlier
Bioscience Technology    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A new blood test is twice as sensitive and can detect breast cancer recurrence a full year earlier than current blood tests, according to a scientist who reported at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society. The researcher noted that breast cancer survivors face about a 1-in-5 chance that the cancer will come back, or recur, within 10 years of treatment. More

Non-invasive treatment for bad heart valve
United Press International    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Patients with aortic stenosis who are too sick for open-heart surgery can receive catheter-based treatment instead of open-heart surgery, researchers say. Before catheter-based heart valve procedures were developed in the last decade, patients diagnosed with aortic stenosis would have only one option — open-heart surgery — but about one-third of the patients are too frail for open heart surgery.

Eyes on cancer: Techniques for watching tumors do their thing
The Scientist    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
These days, cancer has a harder time hiding out. With modern imaging tools, inquiring researchers can ogle its every move, from a tumor's growth to its inner workings to its effects on surrounding tissues. Utilizing an abundance of tracers and reporter genes, researchers can visualize a cancer's biochemistry, including its off-kilter metabolism. They can also monitor where a potential new cancer drug goes and what it does. More
