Fitting with the theme of Spring, Dr. Yaniv Elkouby (Hebrew University, Israel) discusses his recently published research on how eggs develop in the fetal period of developing females. This involves a chromosomal bouquet formed by microtubule fibers, which is necessary for proper oocyte development. When perturbations in these structures occur, infertility or miscarriage results.
Also, Chris DiBlasio, MD, explains how prostate-specific membrane antigen PET imaging will significantly improve the detection and treatment of prostate cancer.
