OUP Academic

Criticisms of the Green Revolution have focused on environmental and human health problems associated with pesticides. Pesticides may also have adverse effects on wild fish and other aquatic animals in rice paddies that supply an additional source of food and income for some farm households and provide natural pest control. We use survey data from the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam to estimate the impact of pesticides on fish harvests from rice fields. The results confirm findings of ecological studies that pesticide use harms fish populations. However, fish harvest losses are small enough that ignoring them is likely economically rational.

Molecular changes in premenopausal oestrogen receptor-positive primary breast cancer in Vietnamese women after oophorectomy

Molecular changes in premenopausal oestrogen receptor-positive primary breast cancer in Vietnamese women after oophorectomy


npj Breast Cancer

<p>Surgical removal of the ovaries alters the expression of hundreds of genes in the tumour cells of premenopausal women with breast cancer. Ben Haynes from Royal Marsden Hospital in London, UK and colleagues characterised molecular changes in 56 premenopausal women from Vietnam with oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer who underwent oophorectomies, a standard treatment for this patient population. They showed that blood levels of the hormone estradiol dropped precipitously following ovary-removal surgery. Levels of a protein that was indicative of tumour growth also went down, as did genes involved in regulating hormone signalling and cell proliferation. The results are consistent with those seen in postmenopausal women following treatment with an oestrogen-blocking drug, but oophorectomy had a more dramatic effect. The data could aid the search for predictive biomarkers of who stands to benefit most from ovary removal.</p>
