Early Exposure To Toxins Sets Stage For Adult Tumors

For gene-environment interactions, the timing of the environmental exposure may be critical, say scientists at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. In a unique animal study presented at the American Association for Cancer Research conference, the researchers found that rats susceptible to developing uterine tumors inevitably developed tumors when exposed to an environmental toxin just […]

Artificial Proteins Could Help Repair Cells

Johns Hopkins University researchers have created a new class of artificial proteins that can assemble themselves into a gel and encourage the growth of selected cell types. This biomaterial, which can be engineered to send different biological signals to cells, is expected to assist scientists who are developing new ways to repair injured or diseased […]
