Photdynamic therapy: an effective treatment for head and neck cancers
Photodynamic therapy, which activates light sensitive drugs, represents a major advance in the treatment of head and neck cancers, without the toxicity of radiotherapy or the tissue loss associated with surgery. (2001-10-22)

Rationale for rationing no longer compelling
The Oregon Health Plan is regarded as having pioneered explicit, systematic and open rationing of health care by denying access to some services. However, Dr. John Oberlander and colleagues report that the reality is somewhat different. (2001-05-28)

Fast medication adjustment, team approach yields lasting hypertension control
Using a physician/nurse team to rapidly adjust blood pressure drug dosage can significantly improve hypertension control rates and potentially reduce costs, according to a Mayo Clinic study published in the April issue of the American Journal of Hypertension. (2001-04-22)

Bexxar highly effective as first-line treatment for patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
A radioactive antibody compound known as Bexxar produced tumor shrinkage in 97 percent of 76 previously untreated patients with advanced-stage, low-grade non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) in a new study at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center. Most notably, 76 percent of patients achieved a complete remission. (2000-05-21)

Alternatives and animal use in the life sciences
More than 700 scientists will meet in Bologna, Italy at the (1999-07-22)

Hypertension: Getting Pharmacists Involved Can Help
Teaming physicians with pharmacists who counsel patients and make medication recommendations shows promise in the treatment of uncontrolled hypertension. (1998-11-05)

Orlistat Is Not A Miracle Diet Pill
John Garrow, a former Professor of Human Nutrition, says that there have been misplaced claims that the new obesity drug orlistat, will enable fat people to eat what they like and still lose weight. He stresses that this is highly misleading and that anyone taking orlistat who eats a high fat diet will receive a powerful incentive not to. (1998-09-25)

Nanoscale Electrochemistry - A Tool For Forming Structures Of Almost Atomic Dimensions
The deposition of nanometer-sized clusters and the local etching of a metal surface have been achieved by applying ultrashort voltage pulses in an electrochemical scanning tunneling microscope at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, Berlin (Physical Review Letters 80, 5599 (1998)). (1998-06-30)

Using Liquid To Cool Grocery Cases Saves Energy, Helps Environment
Refrigerants leaking from systems that chill supermarket display cases are a leading source of environmental pollution. Recent tests by a team of University of Illinois researchers indicate that an alternate method of refrigeration can reduce leakage and save money. (1998-04-08)

Sandia Formally Proposes To Design Accelerator Expected To Achieve High-YieldFusion
Permission to prepare a conceptual design for an accelerator, X-1, expected to achieve high-yield fusion by imploding capsules of deuterium and tritium, has been formally requested by Sandia of DOE. The request was made after Sandia's prototype Z accelerator passed its fourth and final milestone last week, producing power, energy and heat far exceeding requirements. (1998-04-08)

Getting At The Components Of Mechanotransduction: Genes Required For Vertebrate Sensory Hair Cell Function Identified
Although researchers know a great deal about the biophysics of hearing, not much is known about the molecular basis of inner ear and lateral line function. In a study on zebrafish mutants (Neuron, February 1998), Max Planck scientists identified genes which appear to have a specific role within sensory hair cell. (1998-03-16)
