Whicker: UCLA, Pepperdine remind us of college basketball’s good tidings

Again, the score filtered east, through the time zones, and spread the news that Pepperdine and Colbey Ross can play. The Waves, who already knew that, stared at the freeway through the windows of their northbound bus late Friday afternoon. “They were ticked,” Pepperdine coach Lorenzo Romar said. That’s ticked off.

Prostate cancer: CRYM protein inhibits tumour growth

Prostate cancer is caused by elevated hormone levels, and tumours are generally treated using hormone therapy. A research team headed by Lukas Kenner of MedUni Vienna in collaboration with David Heery from the University of Nottingham/UK and Sarka Pospisilova and Suzanne Turner of the University of Brno/Czech Republic have shown that the protein μ-crystallin (CRYM) plays a significant part in tumour growth. The higher the levels of this protein that are present, the better the prognosis.
