A study published online March 4, 2010 in Science Expressreports the discovery that gut microbes may alter behavior and promote obesity and metabolic syndrome. HHMI investigator Rob Knight at the University of Colorado did the analysis that led to this conclusion. His study also showed that these bacteria may be transmissible between people.

New research demonstrates that cancer stem cells or “tumor-initiating cells,” when targeted with a reprogrammed herpes virus, can be prevented from turning malignant and re-initiating disease. The finding bolsters the theory that cancer harbors its own secret cache of stem cells that are resistant to conventional therapies and responsible for tumor re-emergence. This type of virus-against-cancer therapy may be the next generation of anti-cancer treatments. The study was published online Jan. 21 in the journal PLoS (Public Library of Science) One.
