- Understanding nicotine detoxication
   Study reveals how methoxsalen, a drug that has been clinically proven
   to decrease smoking, interacts with and blocks the action of a protein
   that breaks down nicotine.

   put the break on cancer-causing genes.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/08-2005/msg07.html

- Genes Responsible For Breast Cancer Metastasis Identified
   Study helps to shed some light on the genes that mediate breast cancer
   metastasis to the lung but not other organs.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/08-2005/msg06.html

- A Structure Of Antidepressants' Binding Sites
   Scientists have now captured the crystal structure of a bacterial

- Combination Therapy Leads to Partial Recovery from Spinal Cord Injury
   in Rats
   Combining partially differentiated stem cells with gene therapy can
   promote the growth of new "insulation" around nerve fibers in the
   damaged spinal cords of rats.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2005/msg57.html

- Combination Hormone/Vaccine Therapy for Prostate Cancer May Benefit
   Patients Whose Disease Returns
   Cancer vaccine combined with hormone-deprivation therapy can help
   patients with recurrence of prostate cancer.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2005/msg56.html

- Multi-Species Genome Comparison Sheds New Light on Evolutionary
   Processes, Cancer Mutations
   Mammalian chromosomes have evolved by breaking at specific sites
   rather than randomly as long thought - and that many of the breakage
   hotspots are also involved in human cancer.
   http://hum-molgen.org/NewsGen/07-2005/msg55.html

- New Discovery May Help Doctors Treat Infertility
   Estrogen Receptor beta is necessary for ovulation. In women lacking
   this gene, alternative treatments may be more effective.
