Washington, Dec 06 - Researchers have identified a biomarker for a cellular switch that accurately predicts which prostate cancer patients are likely to have their cancer recur or spread.
Washington, Dec 06 - By using a powerful gene-hunting technique for the first time in mammalian brain cells, researchers have identified a gene involved in building the circuitry that relays signals through the brain.
Washington, Dec 5 - More than a third of twin births and more than three-quarters of triplets or higher-order births in the US are the result of assisted reproductive technologies, a new finding says.
Washington, Dec 05 - For women, passing midlife can deal a blow to their sex drive, however two new studies have offered hope to women who want to get their sexual mojo back.
An important step toward developing a successful and safe treatment for women after natural or surgical menopause is to find out how much testosterone is really needed to bring desire back.

Washington, Dec. 4 - Researchers have identified an enzyme that could halt or possibly even reverse the build-up of toxic protein fragments known as plaques in the brains of mice with Alzheimer's disease.
Washington, Dec. 4 : Scientists have said that they have proof that descendants of the H2N2 avian influenza A virus that killed millions worldwide in the 1950s still pose a threat to human health, particularly to those under 50.
The study included 22 H2N2 avian viruses collected from domestic poultry and wild aquatic birds between 1961 and 2008, making it the most comprehensive analysis yet of avian H2N2 viruses.
Washington, Dec 04 - A new study has revealed that prenatal exposure to alcohol severely disrupts major features of brain development that potentially lead to increased anxiety and poor motor function, conditions typical in humans with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD).
Washington, Dec 03 - In the war against superbugs, researchers have discovered a protein that can kill bacteria and can serve as a powerful antibiotic in the future.
The isolation of this protein, produced by a virus that attacks bacteria, is a major step toward developing a substitute for conventional antibiotics.
Washington, Dec 03 - A new study has revealed that vitamin D decreases pain in women with type 2 diabetes and depression.
Type 2 diabetes is associated with depression and pain, but few studies have looked at how pain may affect the treatment of depression in patients with type 2 diabetes and no studies have evaluated the role of vitamin D supplementation on this association.
