Endometrial Cancer: Socioeconomic Status and Racial/Ethnic Differences in Stage at Diagnosis, Treatm
Objective. We evaluated the association between socioeconomic status and racial/ ethnic differences in endometrial cancer stage at diagnosis, treatment, and survival. Methods. We conducted a population-based study among 3656 women. Results. Multivariate analyses showed that either race/ethnicity or income, but not both, was associated with advanced-stage disease. Age, stage at diagnosis, and income were independent predictors of hysterectomy. African American ethnicity, increased age, aggressi

Reassessment of intra- and extra-ovarian expression of growth differentiation factor-9
Mammalian ovarian organogenesis is characterized temporally by oogonial mitosis, oogonial apoptosis, rescue of germ cells via interaction with somatic cells to form primordial follicles, and entrance into meiosis. Recent studies suggest that germ cell’s activity participate in this process via the production of local regulatory factors. Growth differentiation factor-9 (GDF-9), a novel transforming growth factor-family member, is expressed in ovaries of various species as a crucial factor in ov
2.3.1 Applying the principles Trying to use ‘guiding principles’ of this type does not make assessment straightforward. For example, such principles can't be rigidly applied in an abstract way, reflecting absolutes such as what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong'; their operation depends on context. We can explore this further by attempting to apply the third of these principles. Justice might be considered to involve directing the benefits of a new technology to those who need it most. At the same time, the role of pol

Excitation-Contraction Coupling -- So What's the Difference Between Striated and Smooth Muscle?
This module illustrates, primarily through animation, the phenomenon of excitation-contraction coupling of muscle in a step by step manner. Striated and smooth muscle are both shown. Entry to the module is via the html "Intro" file.
The Heart of the Matter
This lesson describes how the circulatory system works, including the heart, blood vessels and blood. Students learn about the chambers and valves of the heart, the difference between veins and arteries, and the different components of blood. This lesson also covers the technology engineers have developed to repair the heart if it is damaged. Students also understand how the circulatory system is affected during spaceflight (e.g., astronauts lose muscle in their heart during space travel).
Move Your Muscles!
This lesson covers the topic of muscles. Students learn about the three different types of muscles in the human body and the effects of microgravity on muscles. Students also learn how astronauts need to exercise in order to lessen muscle atrophy in space. Students discover what types of equipment engineers design to help the astronauts exercise while in space.
Walk, Run, Jump!
In this activity, students participate in a series of timed relay races using their skeletal muscles. The compare the movement of skeletal muscle and relate how engineers help astronauts exercise skeletal muscles in space.
Opportunities for Reducing U.S. Transportation's Petroleum Usage and Greenhouse Gas Emissions
While the U.S. has set formidable goals around cutting oil consumption and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, these will likely remain out of reach as long as we continue our romance with big, powerful cars, says John Heywood. This unshakeable passion, alongside the well-established habit of petroleum use, and the expanding
Lunch with a Laureate: Richard Schrock
Growing up in Indiana, exploring the local woods and pit where fossils were found, Richard Schrock early on became interested in the natural world. He was captivated by the way things worked. When he was eight, his older brother gave him a chemistry set and he knew that was what he wanted to do. “Like many things, you slide i
The Ethics of the Cognitive Sciences: children's pathologies – how do we think about children’s
Speaker(s): Dr Rachel Cooper, Professor Eileen Munro, Professor Emily Simonoff | The classification, identification and treatment of mental illnesses in children raises particular challenges. For example, what are the appropriate criteria for diagnosing children with a mental disorder? How can we avoid the risk of stigmatisation that some children and their families experience? What are the risks of not identifying mental illness in children and how does it impact on their well-being, self-estee
