  • Mammalian system for controlling bone remodelling also regulates fever
    Mammals have evolved a complex system for controlling bone remodeling. Babies require calcium for healthy bones and they obtain it from their mother's milk. Nursing mothers release calcium from their bones. Surprisingly, however, the same system also plays a key part in the control of fever and of female body temperature.

  • Protein from pregnancy hormone may prevent breast cancer
    Researchers have found that hormones produced during pregnancy induce a protein that directly inhibits the growth of breast cancer. This protein, alpha-fetoprotein, may serve as a viable, well-tolerated agent for the treatment and prevention of breast cancer, according to new findings.

  • Flaxseed oil may reduce osteoporosis risk
    Animal studies suggest that adding flaxseed oil to the diet could reduce the risk of osteoporosis in post-menopausal women and women with diabetes.

  • Estrogen receptor-alpha, breast cancer patients and tamoxifen response
    Researchers have found evidence of a statistically significant survival benefit from adjuvant tamoxifen among patients whose estrogen-receptor-positive tumors had high levels of phosphorylation of ER-alpha; at serine-118.
