Cancer-killing virus plus chemotherapy drug might treat recurrent ovarian cancer
In six out of 10 cases, ovarian cancer is diagnosed when the disease is advanced and five-year survival is only 27 percent. A new study suggests that a cancer-killing virus combined with a chemotherapy drug might safely and effectively treat advanced or recurrent forms of the disease.

Rutgers Chemistry's Ki-Bum Lee patents technology to advance stem cell therapeutics
Rutgers researchers have developed a highly robust, efficient nanoparticle-based platform that can regulate gene expression and eventually stem cell differentiation. NanoScript is the first nanomaterial TF protein that can interact with endogenous DNA.

For female chimpanzees, no consent agreement
In the animal kingdom, the battle of the sexes often truly becomes a battle. Among chimpanzees, males may violently attack females, sometimes resulting in serious wounds. While unpleasant to watch, the frequent occurrence of such violence at several East African field sites suggests that aggression toward females functions as a form of sexual coercion.

Male bullies father more chimpanzees
In a long-term study of interactions between chimpanzees in the famous Gombe National Park in Tanzania, researchers have found that males who consistently bully females tend to father more babies with their victims.

Direct drug screening of patient biopsies could overcome resistance to targeted therapy
A new screening platform using cells grown directly from tumor biopsy samples may lead to truly individualized treatment strategies that would get around the problem of treatment resistance, which limits the effectiveness of current targeted therapy drugs.

Tumor suppressor also inhibits key property of stem cells, Stanford researchers say
A protein that plays a critical role in preventing the development of many types of human cancers has been shown also to inhibit a vital stem cell property called pluripotency, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

The backwards brain? Study shows how brain maps develop to help us perceive the world
In a new study, scientists from The Scripps Research Institute reveal that physically moving forward actually trains the brain to perceive the world normally. The findings also show that the relationship between neurons in the eye and the brain is more complicated than previously thought -- in fact, the order in which we see things could help the brain calibrate how we perceive time, as well as the objects around us.

Gene sequencing projects link two mutations to Ewing sarcoma subtype with poor prognosis
An international collaboration has identified frequent mutations in two genes that often occur together in Ewing sarcoma and that define a subtype of the cancer associated with reduced survival. The research, conducted by the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital-Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project and the Institut Curie-Inserm through the International Cancer Genome Consortium, appears in the current issue of the scientific journal Cancer Discovery.

Hope for those with social anxiety disorder: You may already be someone's best friend
Making friends is often extremely difficult for people with social anxiety disorder and to make matters worse, people with this disorder tend to assume that the friendships they do have are not of the highest quality. The problem with this perception, suggests new research from Washington University in St. Louis, is that their friends don't necessarily see it that way.

Not all elderly Americans will surf to health
Providing health information on the internet may not be the 'cure all' that it is hoped to be. It could sideline especially those Americans older than 65 years old who are not well versed in understanding health matters, and who do not use the web regularly. So says Helen Levy of the University of Michigan in the US in a study in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, published by Springer.

Best supporting actors in your ears? Research points to potential way to restore hearing
There's a cast of characters deep inside your ears -- many kinds of tiny cells working together to allow you to hear. The lead actors, called hair cells, play the crucial role in carrying sound signals to the brain. But new research shows that when it comes to restoring lost hearing ability, the spotlight may fall on some of the ear's supporting actors -- and their understudies.
