Growth signal can influence cancer cells’ vulnerability to drugs, study suggests
Researchers found that exposure to the signal TGF-β causes changes in mouse tumor stem cells that help them evade a widely used anti-cancer drug. This did not happen to cells that did not receive TGF-β. More » (Source: The Rockefeller University Newswire)

Most Americans and Scientists Tend to Disagree, Survey Finds
Regular Americans and their scientist counterparts think much differently about science-related issues, according to a new pair of surveys. The Pew Research Center, in collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, asked 5,750 American citizens and scientists their opinions on a series of scientific topics. They found striking gaps between the two groups, particularly on issues related to biomedical science. Food is a major source of friction for the both camps. A full 57% of Americans think that consuming genetically modified foods is unsafe, but 88% of scientists say GMO foods are safe to eat...

Cancer biologist and physician Sohail Tavazoie is promoted to associate professor
Tavazoie, who joined Rockefeller in 2009, works to understand how cancer cells become able to escape a tumor and invade other organs, a process known as metastasis. He searches for genes and molecular pathways cancer cells exploit in order to metastasize and, with that knowledge, hopes to develop future treatments to prevent or interfere with the process.

Abbott prism htlv-i/htlv-ii
The ABBOTT PRISM HTLV-I/HTLV-II assay is an in vitro chemiluminescent immunoassay (ChLIA) for the qualitative detection of antibodies to human T-lymphotropic virus Type I and/or human T-lymphotropic virus Type II (anti-HTLV-I/ HTLV-II) in human serum and plasma specimens. The ABBOTT PRISM HTLV-I/HTLV-II (ChLIA) is intended to screen individual human donors, including volunteer donors of whole blood and blood components, and other living donors for the presence of anti-HTLV-I/HTLV-II. It is also intended for use in testing blood and plasma specimens to screen organ donors when specimens are obtained while the donor’s hear...

'Bionic' spinal implant helped paralysed rats walk
Conclusion This is promising research that demonstrates how a new spinal cord implant has been able to restore movement in paralysed rats. The e-dura implant is a breakthrough in that it overcomes a lot of the problems presented by previous rigid and inflexible implants. Instead, it is made of a flexible material that is able to integrate with spinal cord tissue. The study demonstrated long-term functionality in rats and few side effects over the six-week testing period. Rats given a serious spinal cord injury, who were consequently permanently paralysed, were able to walk again after the implant was surgically placed i...

Polls of Future Past: A History of Public Expectations for the Future of Science
Science fiction sometimes barely beats out science fact as technological advancements rapidly transform the world. But the changes that are anticipated aren't always the ones that arrive. Here's a look back at what the polls tell us the public has expected from scientific progress -- and how often they've been disappointed. From the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research archives: Reality Outpacing Expectations: The Moon Landing When Gallup first asked Americans in 1949 whether they expected man to reach the Moon in the next 50 years, only 15 percent said yes. Despite the shocking power of new wartime technologies like...
