Abstract

Any process in which competing solutions replicate with errors and numbers of their copies depend on their respective fitnesses is the evolutionary optimization process. As during carcinogenesis mutated genomes replicate according to their respective qualities, carcinogenesis obviously ...read more

Arterial-Venous in Development & Disease

Arterial-venous development may play a crucial role in cardiovascular diseases. Here is the latest research.

Metastatic Malignancy Treatments

Treatment of metastatic cancers depends on the type of cancer and the severity of the disease. The regime often includes medications such as chemotherapy or hormone therapy, but may also include immunotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery or a combination. Discover the latest research on metastatic cancer treatments here.

Hematopoiesis & Alzheimer's Disease

The formation of blood cells, hematopoiesis, has been exploited for the potential use as a therapy in Alzheimer’s disease. Decreased levels of lymphocytes and proteins involved in stem cell recruitment are found in early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Here is the latest research on hematopoiesis and Alzheimer’s disease.

Radiosensitizers

A radiosensitizer is an agent that makes tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is sometimes also known as a radiation sensitizer or radio-enhancer. Discover the latest research on radiosensitizers here.
