‘However, the blind man stand out when it comes to cognitive effort. ‘.. The three-step study tested 25 subjects, 11 of whom were blind from birth the participants completed a questionnaire and experiments experiments: one where to 16 different to 16 different scents with an olfactometer, nor where tomodensitometer tomodensitometer to three different odors were identified:. A rose, vanilla and butanol There is an urban legend that blind people smell better than the sighted We have to prove this to be wrong, ‘says Maurice Ptito, Professor at the Universit? de Montr? al School of Optometry and Beaulieu – Lefebvre thesis director.
The sighted.nd smellA recent study by Mathilde Beaulieu – Lefebvre, a graduate student from the Universite de Montreal Department of Psychology, has debunked the blind the blind have an acute sense of smell than the sighted. Vision loss simply makes blind people pay more attention to how they perceive smells. When you enter a room, the coffee the coffee, you’ll quickly look for the coffee machine, the blind person, who in the same room just the smell of coffee as information, says Beaulieu – Lefebvre. This odor is therefore become very important. Their spatial representation . Continue reading
In this latest study, the researchers have a variety of evidence on this subject evaluated These include a 1969 study in Ohio, in which 739 subjects participated in tests in which several main wash and pre-soak detergent with and without proteolytic enzymes. In the tests using exaggerated use conditions, were used, there was no significant increase of skin irritation in the hand or arm immersion assays attributed attributed to the presence of enzyme products were then control control in a total of 5943 subjects, and the hands of a dermatologist no differences between the enzyme observed and control treatments..
The researchers studied the quality of life using a questionnaire as the Medical Outcomes Study 36 – Item Short-Form General Health Survey , patient patient is known a year after her treatment. Continue reading
There is another connection between traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer’s disease, he says – it is known that people who have suffered a brain injury had a 400 % increased risk of developing the disorder. – ‘But until now just just interesting observations, ‘Burns says. ‘same show that the same pathways chronically activated Alzheimer activated acutely in traumatic brain injury, and play a very important play a very important role in secondary injury. ‘.
The site provides easy access for submitting biomarker project concepts to therapeutic area steering committees within the consortium. The first three Steering Committees shall be composed of experts in neuroscience, metabolic disorders and cancer. A fourth steering committee in inflammation and immunity is mounted. If approved, members-onlyveloped in the formal project proposals and when by the Consortium Executive Committee, the Foundation wants for NIH funds to implement them. To date, over $ 6 million has been the Consortium the Consortium lung cancer and lymphoma biomarker to support projects. Continue reading
The TCGA data available for research on a database – are evidence from a complementary but independent genomic study of GBM by Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer investigators expected the 5th Published ,, issue of Science Express.
Brain disease more than 21,000 people in the United States each year. GBM is the most common and deadly form of brain cancer, most patients surviving just 14 months from the date of diagnosis. Continue reading
Diagnose While more difficult than ductal breast cancer, lobular carcinomas of ER+ and PR+, it better to hormonal therapies such as tamoxifen, only a few studies tumor – promoting effects of estrogen means tend block. Li and colleagues observed that current users of alcohol had a 40 % increased risk of ER+ / PR+ breast cancer. The significant increase in hormone – sensitive breast cancer, including lobular and ER+ / PR+ tumors in women who drink suggests a hormonal basis for the known association between alcohol consumption and breast cancer incidence, Li said, Alcohol is known the the estrogen levels increase in the blood, and therefore it could stimulate hormonally sensitive tumors. .
Li and colleagues earlier this year reported a 65 % increase in lobular cancer during the last decade, a trend is increased use of combined increased use of combined estrogen and progestin hormone replacement therapy may be said Li . Continue reading

‘.. Avastin+ IFN has been shown to significantly increase the time patients with mRCC without their disease getting worse life. The Avastin-based therapy patient benefit is comparable in terms of PFS to sunitinib, but the treatment regimens have very different side effect profiles. – ‘Side effects are a very important aspect for physicians and patients consider when making treatment decisions, especially with new treatments, the long time without disease progression,’said Professor Gerald Mickisch from the Center of Operative Urology, Academic Hospital Bremen in Germany, and author of the study.
Observed no new or unexpected adverse events.. The results of AVOREN study showed that the addition of Avastin to IFN:- – progression-free survival was almost doubled from a median 5.4 to 10.2 months, response tumor significantly from 12.8 percent with IFN alone at 31 when Avastin was added – dose reduction of IFN did not affect the effectiveness of the combination with Avastin – The study also showed a trend towards improved survival, but full of survival data are expected during the second half of 2008.

Carbon-coated nanomagnets as potential hyperthermia agentsCarbon-coated nanomagnets may offer a new form of cancer treatment. The research at the 103rd Annual Scientific Meeting the American Urological Association suggests that nanoparticles could coat of metallic iron with a protective carbon as a safe and effective hyperthermia agents serve. In animal models with heat selectively kill tumor cells has proved to be efficient. Use of metallic iron in the nanoparticles would allow heating to higher temperatures, and coating the iron with carbon would protect the iron from rusting effectiveness of the therapy effectiveness of the therapy. Researchers from Germany presented their findings to reporters in a special press conference on 19 May 2008 at 11:00 clock..

They could not only fully categorize over a dozen different immune cell types, but at the same time, to peer inside the cells and learn various internal processes of a cell to another type of distinction. ‘We can say not only what type of cell it is, what it thinks and what it has become,’says Nolan. Notes:.. Nolan and his colleagues at Stanford, with collaborators at Columbia, used the U of T technology spinoffifferent materials in the interior and on the surface of various cell types in the human bone marrow, produces the place where all the monitor immune and blood diseases blood diseases such as leukemias originate.
Clarifying the underlying biochemistry of cells, an early diagnosis of diseases and ultimately advance personalized medicine, particularly cancer and HIV treatments, by offering more and less aggressive treatment options. We have shown that drug response is specific to certain sub-populations of cells, and insight into the signaling cascade response response says Scott Tanner of U of T Department of Chemistry, development development of LED technology in the research this week in Science. We have also shown that a drug activate or suppress multiple response tracks simultaneously, and that these responses are modified when a combination of drugs to be administered. – Together, this indicates that the technology of significant value in the development and validation of rational drugs to target certain pathogens to be – a quantum leap towards the provision of personalized medicine, says Tanner..
