Ten-year survival of a rare malignancy called mesenchymal chondrosarcoma has been reported to be as low as 20 percent. But a new study has found survival is not as dismal as prior reports. More than half (51 percent) of patients survived at least five years, and 43 percent survived at least 10 years.

Scientists unravel mystery of tubulin code

LakeArrowhead (#1) 1350 days ago Science scientists unravel mystery tubulin code All   Discuss  | Add To 
Driving down the highway, you encounter ever-changing signs -- speed limits, exits, food and gas options. Seeing these roadside markers may cause you to slow down, change lanes or start thinking about lunch. In a similar way, cellular structures called microtubules are tagged with a variety of chemical markers that can influence cell functions. The pattern of these markers makes up the 'tubulin code' and scientists have uncovered the mechanism behind one of the main writers of this code.

Rats have more heart than you might think. When one is drowning, another will put out a helping paw to rescue its mate. This is especially true for rats that previously had a watery near-death experience, say researchers.

Bragging to coworkers about a recent promotion, or posting a photo of your brand new car on Facebook, may seem like harmless ways to share good news. However, a new study shows that self-promotion or a 'humblebrag' often backfires.

Significant progress made towards individualized cancer immunotherapy

Significant advances have been made with regard to the development of individualized immunotherapy strategies for treating cancer. They have managed to identify the relevant genetic changes or mutations associated with various types of cancer and have determined their individual blueprints. This makes it possible for the scientists to readily produce customized cancer vaccines of the kind that have already been demonstrated to be effective in animal models.

It is six times more expensive for society -- and for you individually -- if you travel by car instead of cycling. This has been shown in a study from Copenhagen, a city of cyclists. It is the first time a price has been put on car use as compared to cycling.

Offenders enrolled in alcohol treatment programs as part of their sentence are significantly less likely to be charged or reconvicted in the 12 months following their program, a study has shown. Alcohol misuse is associated with about 50 per cent of all violent crimes and 73 per cent of all domestic violence incidents in the United Kingdom and the United States, with nearly 1million violent attacks every year in the United Kingdom alone.

Patients with COPD grade III with no more than one flare-up per year and grade II patients benefit from the new aclidinium Bromide/formoterol drug combination, researchers note.

Microscope created allowing deep brain exploration

LakeArrowhead (#1) 1350 days ago Science microscope created allowing deep brain exploration All   Discuss  | Add To 
A team of neuroscientists and bioengineers has created a miniature, fiber-optic microscope designed to peer deeply inside a living brain. The laser-scanning microscope, a prototype which will be further refined, uses fiber-optics and a tiny electrowetting lens. Compared to other small, focusing lenses, it's fast and not sensitive to motion. This allows it to reliably focus on living tissue.
