Quitting Ambien: Study Shows High Cancer Risk. - Advertisement - A recent study reports that the 6% to 10% of Americans using prescription sleeping pills such as zolpidem (Ambien), temazepam (Restoril), eszopiclone (Lunesta) and zaleplon (Sonata) are up to 35% more likely to develop some form of cancer, and far more likely to die prematurely, than those who take no prescription sleep aids whatsoever. "We were pretty startled by the findings," says Robert Langer, one of several authors of the study, which was published in BMJ, a British medical journal owned by the British Medical Association.

Inspirations from Maths Three Spheres I Based on another famous and simple Escher print. Here we find a kind of “multi-level game”, since what appears to be a sphere is actually a flat circle with a print of a reticulated pattern that simulates the volume of the sphere. To make clear the “game” Escher represents the same sphere (a flat disk, in fact) placed in various forms: vertically, stretched and folded in half.

Radioactive bacteria attack pancreatic cancer Listeria bacteria carrying the compound rhenium-188 (red) can deliver sustained doses of radiation to pancreatic-cancer cells. Two dangerous things together might make a medicine for one of the hardest cancers to treat. In a mouse model of pancreatic cancer, researchers have shown that bacteria can deliver deadly radiation to tumours — exploiting the immune suppression that normally makes the disease so intractable. Fewer than one in 25 people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer are alive five years later. Chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy are generally ineffective, mainly because the disease has often spread to other organs even before it is detected. The work, which is described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences1, began when Ekaterina Dadachova of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York thought of combining two ways to fight cancer.
