New published data show that bicalutamide (Casodex) 150mg plus radiotherapy significantly extends survival in men with locally advanced prostate cancer compared to radiotherapy alone
New data published in the February 2006 edition of the British Journal of Urology International (BJUI) confirm that bicalutamide 150mg improves the chance of survival by 35 per cent (hazard ratio = 0.65; 95% CI = 0.44 to 0.95, p = 0.03)1 in men with locally advanced prostate cancer (when the disease has spread into the capsule of the prostate or through the prostate into the surrounding tissue) when given bicalutamide 150mg as adjuvant to radiotherapy compared to radiotherapy alone. Bicalutamide 150mg is the only anti-androgen for which this has been shown.1
Also the data from the largest ever treatment study in prostate cancer show that in locally advanced disease, bicalutamide 150mg adjuvant to radiotherapy or radical prostatectomy reduces the risk of disease progression by 31 per cent (hazard ratio = 0.69; 95% CI = 0.58 to 0.82, p < 0.001) leading to a significant survival benefit of 35 per cent when used as adjuvant to radiotherapy.1, In addition, in men with locally advanced prostate cancer, when bicalutamide 150mg was given as monotherapy (alone) there was a 40 per cent reduction in risk, which extended survival free of progression by a median of 2.9 years, showing a trend towards improved survival.2

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
