CDC comes close to an all-clear on romaine lettuce as E. coli outbreak nears historic level

It's unlikely that anyone currently has edible romaine lettuce that's contaminated with the toxic strain of E. coli bacteria sickening people nationwide since March. That was the message Wednesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and if not exactly a thundering signal of “all clear,” it's pretty close. Romaine lettuce has a shelf life of […]Related:Surrogate mothers ask Supreme Court to stop ‘exploitation’ of women and babiesMore men with low-risk prostate cancer are forgoing aggressive treatmentEbola has infected dozens so far in Congo, killing 19, WHO says

Therefore, the cost-effective production of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Ulp1 protease catalytic domain (402-621 aa) was targeted via its cloning under strong T7 promoter with and without histidine tag. The optimization of cultivation condition...

Targeting the PPIs formed between RPA and other DNA Damage Response (DDR) mediators has become an intriguing area of research for cancer drug discovery. A number of studies applied different methods ranging from high throughput screening approaches to fragment-based drug design tools to discover RPA inhibitors. Although these method...

We previously proposed a detailed computational model for this network, which consists of four coupled Cdk modules. Both this detailed model and a reduced, skeleton version show that the Cdk network is capable of temporal self-organization in the form of sustained Cdk oscillations, which correspond to the orderly pr...

Authors: Buchanan T, Mutch D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Although a relatively uncommon disease, the treatment of vulvar cancer has changed considerably over the years and has been under considerable focus due to its past overtreatment and apparent increase in incidence. The purpose of this review is to describe the recommended management of the most commonly encountered vulvar carcinomas based on the most recent available literature. Areas covered: The clinical environment of squamous cell vulvar cancers are illustrated in order to describe the potential pitfalls and limitations of treatment. Then, by examining publish...

Women having trouble getting pregnant sometimes try yoga, meditation or mindfulness, and some research suggests that psychological stress may affect infertility. But what about men: Does their mental state affect a couple's ability to conceive? The latest research on this subject was published Thursday in the journal Fertility and Sterility and suggests that a link between mental health […]Related:CDC comes close to an all-clear on romaine lettuce as E. coli outbreak nears historic levelSurrogate mothers ask Supreme Court to stop ‘exploitation’ of women and babiesMore men with low-risk pro...
