A Novel Gene Alteration Associates with Aggressive Prostate Cancer in African American Men

It is well established that prostate cancer is more prevalent in African American men when compared to men of other ethnicities. There has been a premise that a combination of genetics, lifestyle, nutritional and medical access reasons led to the significant statistical difference. However, in their study titled, “A Novel Genomic Alteration of LSAMP associates with Aggressive Prostate Cancer in African American Men,” published in EBioMedicine (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/ S2352396415301870), researchers from Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU), Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, DoD’s Joint Pathology Center (JPC), Dana-Farber Cancer Research Institute (DFCI), Genomatix GmbH and CytoTest, Inc., found some distinct genomic variations that also could be to blame.

Research conducted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health shows that Monday is akin to a “mini-New Year.” Reinforcing this “fresh start” Monday mindset with weekly cues and reminders can be a powerful tool in helping people sustain healthy behaviors over time.

Spermatozoa need to crane their necks to turn right to counteract a left-turning drive caused by the rotation of their tails, new research has found. Led by Dr Vasily Kantsler of the University of Warwick’s Department of Physics, the researchers discovered that all sperm tails (flagella) rotate in a counter-clockwise motion as they beat to enable them to move through and against the motion of a fluid.

Turns out dads are also eating for two. A study published December 3 in Cell Metabolism reveals that a man's weight affects the heritable information contained in sperm. The sperm cells of lean and obese men possess different epigenetic marks, notable at gene regions associated with the control of appetite. The comparisons, which included 13 lean men and 10 obese men, offer one biological explanation for why children of obese fathers are themselves more predisposed to obesity.
