BPA (bisphenol-A), a toxic intensify ill-used in fictile output, has been coupled to front cancer, former pubescence, and sterility. Now, a discipline on cervid mice released Monday by the University of Missouri base that BPA vulnerability makes virile mice less attractive to distaff mice. Manlike cervid mice open to BPA done their generate's uterus and tried in a snarl showed a departure of spacial encyclopedism abilities—a virile prevalent trait—appearance less masculine and less attractive to females. BPA-exposed males were jilted two to one by both BPA-exposed and BPA-clean females. Read more [...]
Bizarre marine animal found on a beach resident of Kent, lie down with your child. It turned out to sea mouse - kind of sea worm that lives at depths of more than 2 meters below the sea surface. She was washed ashore during shtorma.Neobychnoe creature was seen Julie Sherrard, who drew attention to a strange lump of wool, shimmering with bright colors, lying in the middle of pebbles and seashells. An employee of the University, 48-year-old Julie Heath walked along the shore near Folkestone with his 6-year-old son when she noticed the creature more than 10 cm in length "At first I thought Read more [...]
Greasy and sweet food actually is harmful not only to the waist, but also for the brain, say Canadian researchers. Improper diet alters brain chemistry and leads to disruption in the production of stress hormones and pleasure. One has only to eliminate harmful foods from your diet, as immediately appears unwarranted anxiety and depression begins.A team of scientists from the University of Montreal came to this conclusion on the basis of studies of the behavior of two groups of mice that were fed in a special mode for six weeks. The diet of rodents in the first group consisted of fat only Read more [...]
Scientists from the U.S. company Onconova Therapeutics found a new protection from radiation. Instead of the traditional protective suits they offer to take a pill Ex-RAD, which, according to the creators, is struggling with the consequences of not, and by the mechanism of radiation.
The usual safety procedures when the threat of radiation contamination (eg, protective clothing) allow only reduce the risk of overdose of gamma rays. But it does not protect the body from harmful changes on the cellular level.
The principal difference between medical innovation is that the active substance Read more [...]
The American team of geneticists from Johns Hopkins University in Maryland (Washington, USA) and the University of California at Santa Barbara (California, USA) said that with the help of simple gene manipulation allowed ordinary mice get color visionAccording to zoologists, humans and other higher primates are unique animals because they can see the world in full color range. Human visual system is equipped with three kinds of sensors that are capable of collecting light waves of the three bands - long (responsible for the red color), medium (responsible for the green color) and short (responsible Read more [...]
It was found that the heart muscle of mammals capable of complete regeneration. Surprising results obtained by American doctors during the experiments with newborn mice.Attempts to regenerate damaged human heart ever succeed. Such optimism stems from experiments carried out under the direction of Enzo Porrello (Enzo Porrello) of the University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas (University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas).
Doctors removed newborn mice of the heart - about 15 percent. They grew their lost. Full recovery took 21 days. At the heart is not restored any traces injury. Read more [...]
Researchers from several U.S. universities have come to the conclusion that one of the genes contributing to the emergence of cancer, at the same time involved in the prevention of atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries.This gene called Akt1. In recent years, it was shown that the enzyme of the same name, the synthesis of which he starts, protects cells with structural abnormalities of genetically programmed cell death - apoptosis. As a result, they continue to multiply, and in the end often undergo malignant transformation.
Animal studies have shown that increased activity of the gene Read more [...]

The role of animal parasites in causing cancer. Some clinical observations force us to seek the relationship between the occurrence of tumors and the presence of human and animal tissues of certain parasites. These include cancer of the bladder, occurs relatively frequently in the defeat of the UAR bilharzia (schistosomiasis see). There is a range of information on the relative frequency of cancer of the liver and biliary tract infections in people infected with opisthorchiasis (see). Known and the experimental observations of some authors who believe that the parasites can cause development Read more [...]
Currently, experimental studies using almost all of the animal world, from the simplest to the higher apes.
In experimental surgery to simulate pathological conditions, to study the physiology and pathology of the organs and systems of the living body to solve many problems in the problem of organ transplantation and tissue, the development of new operational techniques most convenient and popular experimental animal is a dog.

In various diseases and injuries permeability and strength capillaries vary independently of each other and in different directions. Thus, after exposure of animals to ionizing radiation (100-1000 rad) permeability vessels increased in the first hours and days, and strength they are almost the same. At the 6-7th day after irradiation appear hemorrhage - which means that strength vessels of a beating. But vascular permeability by this time not only have time to go back to normal, but is often even lower. It rises again later, in the midst of radiation sickness.
When we are faced with the task Read more [...]
