Quantization of 'surface Dirac states' could lead to exotic applications

0 Comments

( RIKEN ) Researchers from the RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science in Japan have uncovered the first evidence of an unusual quantum phenomenon — the integer quantum Hall effect — in a new type of film, called a 3-D topological insulator. This discovery could help move science forward toward the goal of dissipationless electronics — electronic devices that can operate without producing …

Penn Medicine Study Shows Menopause Does Not Increase or Create Difficulty Sleeping

0 Comments

According to a new study by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, only 25 percent of women who had reported no earlier sleep problems developed moderate or severe insomnia or other sleep disturbances during a 16-year period around menopause. What's more, the researchers say that these sleep woes did not appear to be caused by menopause itself, which …

A novel biomarker for mutant p53 could help pathologists assessing tumors during surgery

0 Comments

( Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory ) Researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory today report the discovery of a novel cellular biomarker that could make it comparatively easy for cancer surgeons to determine if a patient has a potentially lethal mutation in a protein called p53, the most powerful of the body's natural tumor suppressors and often called 'the guardian of the genome.' The biomarker …

Combining images, genetic data proves gene loss behind aggressive ovarian cancers

0 Comments

Loss of a gene called PTEN triggers some cases of an aggressive form of ovarian cancer, called high-grade serous ovarian cancer, researchers have demonstrated. In a revolutionary approach, the researchers made the discovery by combining images from cancer samples with genetic data. They proved conclusively that loss of PTEN was commonly found only in the cancerous cells and not the 'normal …

Agent prevents prostate cancer growth and spread in animal studies

0 Comments

( Georgetown University Medical Center ) Researchers have completed a critical step in the journey from a basic science discovery in the lab to a potential clinical application by showing an experimental agent prevents tumor growth and spread in mice with prostate cancer harboring a common chromosomal abnormality. The agent, YK-4-279, is the first drug targeted at the chromosomal translocations …
