ExtendGM canola ban Disappointing The South Australian Government decision to establish a moratorium on genetically modified canola is not supported by scientific evidence, and may prolong the wrong message about the role of science in agriculture experts say experts say at the plant science and technology.
Most cases show that in recent years in countries with access to GM crops harvested harvested environmental benefits, especially in the developing world, there is little doubt in the scientific community, the genetic change is part of a sustainable agricultural future. says the director the University of Adelaide Waite Campus and Deputy CEO of the ACPFG, Professor Geoff Fincher We must ensure We must ensure that the church properly the issues relating to the application of this technology informed We hope that South Australian farmers this technology this technology in the future for the benefit of farmers, consumers are given and the environment, Professor Tester says.

Tuberculosis[TB], a bacterial infection, affects the lungs with one third of the world population currently infected, though asymptomatic, one in ten of these latent infections will advance to active TB. Active TB who found himself slowly develops over a period of several months, starting with a chronic cough, night sweats, weight loss and a characteristic cavity in the lung to the chest x-ray. Untreated TB is fatal. Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative bacterium is spread expelled from person to person through droplets from the lungs by coughing. According to World Health Organization statistics, those with active TB can infect 10-15 other people per year. The weakened immune systems, especially those with HIV / AIDS, people who have in crowded living conditions, children are exposed to high-risk adults, and healthcare workers are high-risk patients have a higher risk infected and developing TB..
The study is reported in the first issue for April of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, the American Thoracic Society O’Brien and his colleagues found that unlike with a molecular assay test, compared to conventional culture techniques. The diagnosis and reporting of MDR-TB in this high – infection areas revolutionized by providing the critical and perhaps more accurate results faster. So start that the right treatment immediately.

In order to bridge the gap between the lack of established scientific evidence and the widespread use of vitamin supplements, Rosenberg suggests that supplements be regulated, because little little federal regulation currently. ‘Right now, the term multivitamin hundreds if not thousands of products with different content and dose of vitamins and minerals. It’s really difficult clients if we customers if we do not even know what standards in the vitamins they are taking. Be helpful to be helpful to consumers and industry, rewarding those businesses to do the science-based marketing, instead of making those unwarranted health claims ‘. Read the rest of this entry »
HER2 is on the surface on the surface of some tumor cells. Gastric cancer cells have higher levels of the HER2 protein than normal cells traitement ed . Trastuzumab attaches itself to the protein so that epidermal production is reduced in cancer cells, it prevents that the cells divide and grow.
3 Immunohistochemistry is used to show HER2-positive the cancer cells HER2 receptors and / or hormone receptors on their surface. If the cancer cells points 0-1+, it is HER2 negative. If it scores 2+, it may be HER2-positive, but an acknowledgment of another test requires known as FISH . If it scores 3+ then it is HER2-positive, necessary without FISH confirmation test. A 150 – mg vial of trastuzumab costs? In the regulatory clinical trial infusions received 8 infusions of trastuzumab. The overall expenditure on drugs costs of trastuzumab is approximately? 185 per patient based. On a body weight of 62 kg Plausible estimates of cost for IHC3 positive subgroup were between? while those for the full licensed population were between? 500 per QALY. For patients with stomach cancer, the average life expectancy of less than 24 months, trastuzumab has been found that increase the median overall survival of 5.6 months for the IHC3 subset. Trastuzumab is at an initial dose of 8 mg / kg body weight, Provision of6 mg / kg body weight, followed 3 weeks later and then administered 6 mg / kg at 3-weekly intervals are repeated. Providing the treatment is tolerated, it can be given until disease progression. Read the rest of this entry »

Swimwear for proteins with a dayWith our new method we can study membrane proteins faster and more accurately with less material than before article . We use a kind of swimsuit for the proteins called amphipols. The compensation for the amphipol lipids, surrounding the membrane protein, and to make it soluble in water, while its function intact. We set a day of amphipol that will mounted on a surface like a lock and key system. If we bound the proteins to a surface they can be adapted to several meters Karen Karen Martinez, Department of Neuroscience and Pharmacology and Nano – Science Center at the University of Copenhagen says.
The researchers tested their method on different proteins and the results are very promising. In the search for new drugs, A European consortiumrs want to study the interaction between membrane proteins and other molecules – eg potential drugs. It can also be used for the detection of viruses, bacteria and parasites. A European consortium that is currently in construction, 15 different laboratories, including both private companies the perspectives the perspectives of this promising method.

A totally treatment modelmetabolism is a large and complex network, built on thousands of reactions. Prof. Beyond human ability, let alone predict how such a complicated system works, Prof. Says is now allowed by the researchers to simulate the impact of the disruption, are computer models help researchers to assess the effectiveness of potential drugs and treatments predict. Although the forecasts checked checked in a laboratory or clinic, this method is very cost effective and leads to exciting possibilities for accelerating future drug developments.
