New way to distinguish between ovarian tumours
Conclusion This study describes a new way of distinguishing between benign and malignant ovarian tumours, and for distinguishing between different stages of malignant tumours. The reseachers found their prediction model was able to discriminate well between benign and malignant tumours overall. But it showed more variable accuracy for distinguishing between different stages of ovarian cancer – for example, between borderline, stage I and stage II to IV ovarian cancers and secondary metastatic tumours. As the researchers point out, a potential limitation of their study is they were only able to study tumours from women w...

On the scent of a wine's bouquet
(Technische Universitaet Muenchen) The majority of wines are produced from around 20 different types of grape, all of which have their own typical aroma. This is due to the terpenes, a diverse category of chemical substances including cholesterol and estrogen. Scientists have now identified two enzymes that determine the terpene content -- and thus the aroma intensity -- of grapes. The findings could play an important role in the future development of grape varieties. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
