  • Estrogen alters memory circuit function in women with gene variant
    Fluctuations in estrogen triggered atypical functioning in a key brain memory circuit in women with a common version of a gene. Brain scans revealed altered circuit activity linked to changes in the sex hormone in women with the gene variant while they performed a working memory task. The findings may help to explain individual differences in risk for, onset, severity, and course of mental disorders, which are often marked by working memory deficits.

  • 'Connshing syndrome' named as a new cause of high blood pressure
    A new cause of high blood pressure has been identified by researchers, which could lead to major changes in managing the disease, say authors of a new report.

  • Many transgender individuals consider their fertility important, survey shows
    Nearly one-fourth of transgender individuals in Toronto, Canada, regard their own fertility as important, but most lack knowledge regarding and access to reproductive options, a new survey finds.

  • Researchers discover key to drug resistance in common breast cancer treatment
    Three-quarters of all breast cancer tumors are driven by the hormone estrogen. These tumors are frequently treated with drugs to suppress estrogen receptor activity, but unfortunately, at least half of patients do not respond to these treatments, leaving them with drug-resistant tumors and few options. Now, scientists have found that two immune system molecules may be key to the development of drug resistance in estrogen-driven breast cancers.

  • Castration-resistant prostate cancer cell growth impeded by endostatin
    Endostatin, a naturally occurring protein in humans, can significantly decrease proliferation of castration-resistant prostate cells in culture, and researchers describe the physiological pathways and signaling evoked by endostatin.
