Catchers mitts don't provide enough protection
Despite improvements in the catchers' mitts used by professional baseball players, the gloves still do not adequately protect players' hands from injury, according to a study by Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. (2005-07-01)

Thin films of silicon nanoparticles roll into flexible nanotubes
By depositing nanoparticles onto a charged surface, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have crafted nanotubes from silicon that are flexible and nearly as soft as rubber. (2005-06-14)

Breast cancer uses growth factors to lure stem cells
Like a siren song, breast cancer secretes growth factors to attract stem cells then uses those cells - which normally promote healing - to help it survive, researchers have found. (2005-06-07)

Charge it!
Research in the June 2005 issue of the Journal of Consumer Research investigates how credit cards serve as lifestyle facilitators, allowing us to buy what we previously could not and to live a life that otherwise would be unattainable. (2005-06-02)

Crazed by consumption!
With consumption comes a cost, says a report in the June 2005 issue the Journal of Consumer Research. But, this time it is not just dollars that are at stake, it may be your mental health, too. (2005-06-02)

Whooping cranes stabilize vision to find food
Pronounced head-bobbing behavior during walking is a characteristic of diverse species of birds, but how this behavior benefits the birds and under what circumstances it proves useful have remained uncertain. Researchers this week report findings that strongly suggest that for some birds head bobbing is critical for the stabilization of their visual world, despite the motion of their bodies, and thereby enables the accurate detection of objects such as food items. (2005-04-11)

Abnormal lung cancer screening results may help smokers quit

Beyond lithium for bipolar disorder
While lithium treatment has proven to be a godsend for many with bipolar disorder, it is not without its downside. However, better treatments for bipolar disorder depend on a better understanding of the still-mysterious mechanism by which lithium damps the highs and lows of the disorder. Now, researchers have identified genes whose activity appears to be switched on by lithium, suggesting more direct targets for drugs to treat the disorder. (2005-03-23)

White blood cell 'waste disposal' system plays critical regulatory role
A new research study identifies a critical inhibitory step that is a key component of the feedback circuit regulating the balance between neutrophil production and destruction. The research suggests that the process for disposal of dying neutrophils is actively linked to neutrophil production. A clear understanding of the processes that control neutrophil turnover may contribute to the development of future therapeutics for conditions characterized by abnormal numbers of these critical immune cells.

The power of the crown has passed from Monarch to Prime Minister, asserts leading Law expert
A University of Glasgow Law expert explodes the myths that the Crown is nothing more sinister than bauble on display in the Tower of London and that the Queen is little more than a harmless figurehead in, 'Our Republican Constitution'. Professor Tomkins also asserts that that the awesome power of the Crown has passed from monarch to Prime Minister. (2005-02-14)

South East may be 'too successful' to benefit from Government's devolution drive
The South East may be too successful to benefit from the Government's drive for greater devolution to the English regions. But London's political leaders should work more closely with agencies and politicians across the South East to tackle transport problems and skills shortages that affect the whole South East of England, according to a new study published today. (2004-10-28)

Mental incapacity among patients in medical wards more widespread than doctors realise
Doctors working in medical wards with acutely ill and predominantly elderly patients need to be more aware that mental incapacity among their patients-and therefore the inability to give informed consent about treatment-is a potentially widespread problem. (2004-10-14)

Androgen loss may lead to Alzheimer's
Decreased testosterone levels in aging men may lead to Alzheimer's disease, according to a new USC study. The findings could strengthen efforts to develop replacement therapy as a possible preventive measure. (2004-09-21)

Recent evolution at a single gene may have brought down heart disease risk in some human groups
Heart disease is Europe's leading cause of death, but new research shows that the disease's toll would be much greater had natural selection not shifted the frequency of susceptibility genes over the past few tens of thousands of years. The work underscores the role of ancient natural selection in shaping contemporary public health. (2004-09-06)

Mediterranean sun seekers should thank Antarctica
Europeans who enjoy sunning themselves on the shores of the Mediterranean should thank Antarctica for their good fortune. If it weren't for Antarctic events 30 million years ago, sunbaking would be a much chillier affair. Climate modelling by Australian scientists at the University of New South Wales reveals that Antarctica's icy sea currents allow the balmy Gulf Stream to dictate warm weather conditions over much of the North Atlantic.

Inhibition of cathepsin proteases inhibits tumor formation in transgenic mice
A new research study provides evidence that inhibition of cathepsin cysteine proteases may be a viable strategy for treatment of human cancers. The researchers demonstrated that cathepsins are elevated in tumors that form in a mouse model of a rare form of pancreatic cancer and a mouse model of cervical cancer. Cathepsins are shown to be involved in multiple stages of tumor development in transgenic mouse models of cancer, and pharmacological inhibition of cathepsins impairs tumor growth and progression.

Making a friendlier mosquito
Genetically modified mosquitoes that cannot transmit malaria are one hope for battling the disease that still kills over one million people a year. But that plan faces some serious snags, according to UC Davis researchers who are suggesting an alternative strategy. (2004-04-20)

Unnecessary hospital stay after heart attack common in European countries
A study investigating inconsistencies in the time patients spend in hospital after heart attack is detailed in this week's issue of The Lancet. Despite a decade of research suggesting that low-risk patients can be discharged from hospital after four days, many countries-especially in Europe-could be keeping patients in hospital for an unnecessary length of time.
