The article cites research on clinical pharmacology and therapeutics. A computational approach has shown a molecular program that helps define the process for embryonic stem cell behavior. Researchers have linked Trichomonas vaginalis parasite to prostate cancer by demonstrating that T. vaginalis macrophage migration factor (TvMIF) has tautomerase activity. A study has shown that expression of an EGF-CFC protein family member in EGFR-mutant NSCLC elicits intrinsic EGFR-inhibitor resistance.
